Almost Everyone a Candidate
The best candidate for laser hair removal would be someone with very light skin and dark hair. That’s because we want the laser to “see” the hair without “seeing” the skin because we want the hair, not the skin, to absorb the laser light. Having said that, basically anyone who has some pigmentation to their hair is a good candidate for laser hair removal. This is as long as the hair is not around the eyes. So that means that almost everyone is a good candidate as long as their hair has some pigment.
Who is NOT a Candidate
It’s an easier question to answer who is NOT a good candidate for laser hair removal, which would be people with white or blonde hair, or people with hair between or around the eyes such as a “unibrow”. For these people I usually would recommend electrolysis or waxing and would never recommend laser hair removal.
