Laser hair removal has been a sensation for years, but for a long time this popular treatment was only effective for people with lighter skin and darker hair. That’s changed. Today’s advanced technology makes it possible to treat virtually all skin tones and types with excellent results. Dr. Eugenie Brunner, our extensively trained facial plastic surgeon, has a comprehensive selection of state-of-the-art lasers. She can customize your procedure to provide optimal results, whether your skin has a little bit of pigment or a lot.

Each laser offers a unique set of benefits. The ideal laser for darker skin is the Nd:YAG. This innovative laser includes contact cooling for the most comfortable and safest treatment possible. You should be aware that Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) should never be used on darker skin, as the energy emission is far less precise than with a laser. This can mean that the results will be less effective and it can also lead to burns. We take your health very seriously, and we will perform a patch test to determine the appropriate energy level for your skin and hair color.

Choosing the right laser hair removal technician is just as important as using the right laser. A quality practice will welcome questions, and you should feel comfortable with the responses they provide. To learn more about laser hair removal, please reach out to our friendly and knowledgeable medical team.
