Best laser treatment for white skin with dark hair

+1

We use the GentleMAX Alexandrite laser by Candela which is ideal for white skin and dark hair. Lasers create a beam of highly concentrated light that penetrates deep into the skin where it delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat. This light energy is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to destroy numerous follicles at a time and leaves the surrounding skin unaffected. Approximately 15-30% long-term hair loss may be observed with each treatment when optimal parameters are used.
