Laser Hair Removal by Skin Type [Dr. Ellern Explains How to Make Yours Safe & Effective]

In the past, lasers were limited in their ability to treat dark or tan skin tones. The laser’s power would have to be turned down quite low to safely treat these skin types, and that meant 1 of 2 things:

  1. The laser got turned down low enough that the treatment was safe, but not all that effective, so you’d need a ton more of these treatments to actually see any results
  2. The laser didn’t get turned down enough and the treatment was very effective, but you may have also had a really serious complication like a burn or discoloration of your skin

New lasers don’t make us choose between 2 bad options, but do be aware that some offices are still using old technologies.

At Reflections, laser hair removal has been one of our most popular service offerings for as long as we’ve been open – over 20 years now! When it comes to laser hair removal, no location is an important to get right as the face, because a misstep with the lasers used in this treatment can mean burns, discoloration, and even long-term scarring. That’s why we only let physicians provide these treatments, and only after Dr. Chasin has vetted their skill and expertise with these lasers.

“So great to be able to not worry about if I have stubble or not...Had underarm laser hair removal done here probably about 8 years ago. Best decision I’ve ever made! To this day even though they said you have to do yearly maintenance nothing grows back. I might pluck a stray once a year but other than that nothing! ”
