I HAVE DARK SKIN, IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL SUITABLE?

This treatment is not suitable to clients with dark skin type. We usually classify skin types based on the Fitzpatrick skin type classification.

Clients with skin type 4 and above are not suitable for this treatment as the darker melanin on the skin will absorb more energy than a lighter skin tone, thus this will cause more discomfort and the client will be at a higher risk of burn.
