WHAT KIND OF LASER DOES illumeMD USE?
illumeMD has two types of FDA-cleared lasers. Our experience in laser hair removal has shown that no one laser can accommodate all skin types and colors. Dark skin types require a specific YAG laser to be safe and effective. For lighter skin types illumeMD uses the Diode laser, which is considered the gold standard in laser hair removal.
WHO PERFORMS THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL PROCEDURE?
All laser hair removal treatments are performed by one of our well-trained medical professionals. Each practitioner is extensively trained before performing any treatments. Our medical doctor oversees all treatment and competency of the medical staff
WHAT TYPES OF HAIR COLOR & SKIN COLOR CAN BE TREATED WITH LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
While laser hair removal can be performed on virtually any skin color and hair type, hair color is the most important factor. The light emitted from the laser is attracted to the melanin, or dark pigment, in the hair follicle. This means that dark hair is treated most effectively. Treatments performed on red, blonde, and gray hair are not generally as effective. Our multiple laser modalities allow us great versatility for accommodating the wide variance in hair and skin color.
