Laser hair removal has always been used to remove hair permanently from the follicle.
The process of laser hair removal for dark skin makes use of a laser beam that penetrates the skin and reaches the hair follicle and the melanin in this absorbs the light, destroying the follicle and inhibiting further growth. However, the use of laser for dark skin is a catch 22 situation since the laser light is not able to distinguish between the melanin on the dark skin and that on the hair follicle. This may result in the skin absorbing some of the laser light and causing blistering and even skin burns. Such an outcome will require the use of black skin products to treat the affected area and for further hair removal.
