It is unfortunate but true that laser hair removal may not be for everyone! However, with the technology available, Westside Laser & Light is able to offer two different options to our clients: The Cutera Coolglide and the ProWave 770 to meet the different skin types and pigmentation that can affect the type of treatment needed for laser hair removal.
The ProWave 770 treats almost all skin types I-V and offers faster treatments with its larger treatment window. ProWave uses a programmable wavelength technology to emulate three different laser wavelengths and tailors the treatment to the patient’s unique skin characteristics. The Cutera Coolglide is the Gold Standard laser for treating skin with darker pigments. With the Cutera Coolglide we can treat all skin types from the palest to the very darkest. Both devices feature real-time calibration technology as well as built in cooling systems to protect the skin.
Lasers work by sending a beam of light at a specified wavelength to target melanin, the dark pigment found in skin and hair. Melanin is prevalent around the hair follicle, at the base of the hair. The light is converted to hot energy, which in turn disables the follicle and causes the hair to fall out (between 1 – 2 weeks after treatment). It is for this reason that laser hair removal works best for those with light skin and dark hair; dark skin naturally contains more melanin, making it more difficult for the light to focus on its target. It should be noted that technology is advancing rapidly in this area and there are now some lasers that have had success with darker skin. Laser treatment is not effective for grey, white, blond or red hair.
