Some patients tend to have more success with laser hair removal than others. The ideal candidate for a laser hair removal has dark hair and fair skin that tans instead of burning or freckling in the sun.
This contrast in color between the skin and hair makes it easy to target the pigment in the hair follicles without damaging surrounding skin. A tolerance for intense light exposure reduces the risk of unwanted side effects such as burning or hyperpigmentation (dark spots). However, patients with a wide range of skin and hair colors can enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal if the correct equipment and settings are used.
