    • We have specific lasers for treating darker Indian Asian skin.
    • Excessive hair growth is a common concern for Men and Women of this skin type.
    • Our new advanced technology can safely treat this skin type with minimal problems.
    • We have successfully treated thousands of Men and Women of this skin type.

    Why is Indian Asian Arabic skin tricky to treat?

    • We need to look at 2 things here; first the Fitzpatrick Skin Type and second; How the Laser works.
    Fitzpatrick Skin Type
    • Looking at the Fitzpatrick skin type gives us information on a particular skin type.
    • This is a method used by dermatologist to divide different skin tones into skin types of 1-6.
    • We don’t just look at the colour of the skin but take into account ethnicity and genetics. This background tells us how your skin reacts with lasers.
    • Most Indian Asian Arabic skin falls into skin type 4.
    • Skin type 4 is the widest skin type range.
    • Skin type 4 has more Melanin than skin type 1-3 and therefore more sensitive to the Laser.
    How Laser works
    • Now if we go back to how Laser hair removal works, you will understand why this skin type is tricky to treat.
    • Laser hair removal works by using a gentle burst of laser light which penetrates into the skin to the root of the hair. It targets the brown pigment (melanin) in the hair shaft. The hair absorbs the light energy and converts it to heat. Thus heating up the follicle and disabling the hair growth mechanism.
    • Melanin is the main target for Laser. Melanin is what gives the skin colour and Indian Asian Arabic skin has more Melanin than Lighter skin types.
    • Some Lasers and IPLs can mistake the Melanin in the skin and cause complications such as burns and pigmentation particularly in darker Indian skin.
    • Our specific Laser with the correct wavelength and depth of penetration allows the heat to absorb the follicles and avoid damaging the surrounding skin.

    Science of our Laser

    • Our Laser for Indian Asian Arabic skin does not have a very good Melanin absorption which means that it safe to use on this skin type.
    • The reduced melanin absorption results in less skin heating compared to other Lasers and there is a lower risk of epidermal damage.
    • In fact, it is poorly absorbed by Melanin, Blood and Water. The reduced absorption for these chromophores means that the Laser penetration depths are relatively high. This enables the laser energy to easily reach the hair bulb and bulge region and cause follicular damage, resulting in long-lasting hair reduction.
    • This diagram shows that our Laser still targets Brown but is much safer than standard lasers as can be seen by the less intense burns.


    Laser Normal Laser Our Specific Laser
    Wavelength (nm) 755 1064
    Spotsize (mm) 15 15
    Pulse duration (ms) 20 20
    Fluence (J/cm²) 15 15
    Cooling level 1 1

    • Normal laser targets brown pigment (melanin) considerably better than our specific laser for Indian Asian Arabic skin But our laser can still target brown, as can be seen by the less intense burns! And it is much safer on dark skin types!

    How effective is the treatment on Indian Asian Arabic Skin?

    • The treatment is just as effective as Light Skin.
    • The number of sessions you need depends on your skin colour and the type of hair.
    • The Laser works best on Light skin Dark hair. However, with our experience we get successful results no matter what your skin type.

      Hairfree Post Treatment Advice

      After your treatment you need to follow the post treatment advice. Your skin is photo sensitive after being exposed to a laser, so the most important thing to remember is to protect your skin by using a minimum of SPF 50 and not use any harsh chemicals on the treatment area during the course of the treatment.
