Asian Skin & Lasers

The Soprano ICE Laser for Asian Skin

Laser hair removal works by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle with laser light, this energy damages and goes on to destroy the hair follicle, thus stopping the follicle from producing further hairs. The newest lasers on the market now have the ability to target the melanin in the root of the hair without dispersing into the surrounding skin which for Asians may have a higher melanin content, allowing laser hair removal to work effectively on Asian skin.

Laser hair removal works effectively for:

  • Pale Asian skin, fine or thick hairs
  • Indian skin, fine or thick hairs
  • Dark Asian skin, fine or thick hairs

Asian skin and hair has a multitude of factors making it different from those found in Caucasians. For this reason laser technology has advanced at different rates and degrees of efficacy for the different skin types. We have now reached the point that laser hair removal can be done effectively and safely on Asian skin.

Asian skin tends to be slightly darker than Caucasian skin and more prone to hyper-pigmentation and scarring, this can manifest after surgery or something as simple as a scratch or bite. Asian hair also differs, the actual space between cuticle cells is narrower, there are more cells, and these are denser and stronger.These factors are what kept Asian people away from laser hair removal in the past. More sensitive skin and stronger hair!

We recommend the Soprano Laser as this laser will help to imedditaly cause the hair to become finer and most importantly the laser is painlfess and works great on thick, strong hair. 

A high percentage of our clients are Asian, and we have a lot of experience dealing with the range of skin types that it includes. Our laser not only works on the stronger thicker hairs but the finer hairs too. Which is perfect, if you want to tackle any of the fine facial hairs. Though the combination of darker skin and finer hairs used to be the most difficult thing to handle, even those are now safely removed with our lasers.
