The truth is, the answer isn't straight forward, it is actually a little complicated for dark skin users due to the high levels of melanin in their skin.
We wrote this article to explain exactly what a dark skin tone individual should do before purchasing their At Home IPL Laser Hair Removal Device. Here are the two best tips we can give you.
Dark Skin Tone Laser Hair Removal Research
If you're a dark skin tone user and want to purchase an at home laser hair removal device, doing thorough research before purchasing is very important.
By “research” we mean you do more than just Google searches, you dig deeper.
Most companies offer skin tone charts to self-judge if the device would work on your skin tone. See Honey Skins At Home IPL Device's skin tone chart below.
*Be extra careful when companies offer IPL Devices that claim to work on the darkest skin tones and are at a much cheaper price. Look for evidence or studies behind such claims!
