Diode Laser for East Indian Skin
Hi Love all. No you should not give up but you should change providers. We treat up to dark skin type IV, including East Indians using a Lumenis Lightsheer Diode laser. It is the most common laser hair removal device in the world.
While we also use a long pulsed yag laser like the one you referenced, Indians can be treated on either type. If you are not getting permanent hair removal with the yag laser you should switch practitioners to a practice that uses diode lasers for your skin type. No need to give up yet. Check the before and after pictures at the link below - we treat all skin types successfully.
