My Daughter Has White Skin With Dark and Thick Facial Hair Almost Full Chin. Which Laser Treatment Will Help to Remove Hair?

Best laser treatment for white skin with dark hair

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.
