Laser hair removal works by heating the hair follicle and selectively damaging it allowing for decreased growth over time.
At USF Health, we have several lasers that can safely and effectively treat any skin type for hair removal. It is important for darker skin types to be treated on specific lasers in skilled hands to avoid complications from the treatment.
In addition, it is recommended that patients avoid the use of self-tanners and sun exposure in the treatment areas 4 to 6 weeks prior to their appointment.
