Individuals who have dark hair and Skin Types I-V, respond the best with an Alexandrite Laser and will get the best and fastest results. The darker, coarse hair contains more melanin. Melanin is a dark pigment which attracts the laser light so more laser energy can be absorbed, which may result in fewer sessions. Blonde and red hair may be a little more difficult to treat, may require more treatments and the results may vary.
Clients who have Skin Type V and VI will need to be treated with either a YAG or Diode laser so not to harm the skin. With these lasers it will usually take more treatments, however, they are the only lasers that can effectively treat Skin Types V and VI.
