Excessive facial and body hair can be a significant problem for you if you have dark skin. Not only is your hair prone to becoming ingrown, other hair removal techniques like plucking, threading or waxing can result in hyper pigmentation (dark patches).
At Brigstock Skin and Laser Centre we treat all skin types, even the very darkest, with our Soprano XL laser machine ensuring you feel confident about the way your skin looks and feels. This machine is particularly suited for hair removal on dark skin. Most laser machines are not suitable for use on dark skin and insurers will not provide cover for clinics using other machines on dark skin (types 5 and 6) due to the high risk of causing burns.
At Brigstock Skin and Laser Centre we provide you with virtually pain free treatments using our Soprano XL machine. This state-of-the-art laser hair removal treatment is specially designed to remove your unwanted hair faster, more comfortably, and with fewer visits than ever before.
This type of treatment is particularly suited to hair removal on dark skin types. Laser hair removal works by applying energy to the melanin in your hair follicles. This energy is converted into heat which destroys the hair follicle preventing the hair from growing back. Our Soprano XL machine does this without heating the melanin in your skin which means it is particularly suited to dark skin types with higher concentrations of melanin.
Because of the patented IN-Motion™ technology of our virtually pain free treatments, our Croydon clinic can even treat your sensitive areas without the discomfort of other systems.
By using a sweeping, paintbrush technique, the virtually pain free procedure is shorter, more comfortable and gives better results. More comfortable than ever before virtually pain free gently heats your hair follicles with gentle pulses of laser energy, while you stay comfortable.
Nearly any part of the body can be treated safely and comfortably, including the face, neck, legs, arms, bikini line, back and stomach. Because the laser is constantly in motion, many patients say that virtually pain free treatments feel similar to a “hot stone massage”.
