Laser Hair Removal for African American Skin
Blue Water Spa serving Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill, and Surrounding Areas
Actual Patient of Blue Water Spa
There is no one laser ideal for all skin types. Therefore, we have two different lasers for hair removal. African American, Asian American, South Indian American, Greek American and any people of color with dark skin require a laser with a long pulse. A longer pulse means that more of the laser energy is delivered to the root of the hair rather than to the surface of the skin where pigmentation problems might occur with lasers designed to treat light skin. Lighter skin people with a tan can also be safely be treated with the longer pulsed lasers for hair removal.
A significant number of our exceptional medical staff and leadership team are men and women of color. You can speak directly to our team members with dark skin who have experienced laser hair removal with success and with comfort. We have team members who are fluent in multiples languages including Hindi, Spanish, Portuguese and French.
At Blue Water Spa, we utilize state-of-the-art lasers that are safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones. Blue Water Spa Laser Technicians are trained thoroughly on the highest level of safety standards for treating all skin types with lasers. Having performed over 300,000 laser treatments to date, Blue Water Spa is experienced in delivering effective treatments while keeping your safety as the top priority.
