I am an African American woman and I would like laser hair removal for my bikini line. Do you have a laser that won’t discolor darker skinned patients? Will we know during the treatment whether the skin color is being affected?
The GentleYag laser from Candela and the diode laser from Lumenis should be safe. However, there are no absolutes. You might want to have the provider do a test spot first. If it blisters, the settings are two intense. Even with the proper laser, treating dark skin is challenging.
