Laser Hair Remova for Darker Skin Types
Because of your darker skin type, your provider has to be very careful so that the laser does not target the melanin in your skin, but instead target the melanin in your hair follicle. The slow and steady progression of treatments with an experienced provider, usually means that both the power settings and spot sizes of the laser are adjusted over time as the hair becomes less and as the remaining hairs "thin out". For your skin type with a good technician and YAG, you can typically expect 8-10 or more treatments and the potential of continued "touch-up" treatments in the years to come (depending on your hormones and genetics).
