I see great answers here, but i'm a bit confused on whether Coolglide or Gentle Yag Laser is better for my dark skin. I hear they're both good, but what's best?
Coolglide Vs Gentle Yag Laser for Dark Skin?

Laser hair removal for darker skin
I have used both the CoolGlide and GentleYAG lasers for hair removal in darker skinned patients and I think they are equivalent in their results. Just make sure you are going to an experienced practitioner who uses the device a lot in darker skinned patients so they feel comfortable in what energy settings are used. There are other alternatives as well. I use the Soprano laser for darker skinned patients and have had excellent results with no adverse effects.
