Lasers for Dark Skin
Laser Hair Removal for African American skin
The best laser hair removal for dark skin is the nd-Yag. I prefer the Gentle Yag from Candela. I find it to be safe, effective, with great results. It can also be used on patients who have dark skin and are of Indian, Asian, or Mediterranean descent. Please find a board certified dermatologist for the best cosmetic results.

The only disadvantage to this laser is that the hair removal doesn't tend to be quite as effective or permanent.
Please find a board certified dermatologist in your area who has experience with your skin type.
Best of luck!
