Am I A Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

How do I know if I'm a candidate for laser hair removal?

At the Wilmington Laser Hair Removal and Skin Clinic we can treat all skin colors and hair colors for permanent hair removal and permanent hair reduction by laser hair removal or electrolysis.

In the past, laser hair removal was best suited for those with light skin and dark hair, but with the new advancements in laser technology, virtually all skin types (such as African American skin tones or darker skin) can reap the life-long benefits of laser hair removal. Even if you were considered an "iffy" candidate in the past, a quick and free consultation with one of our laser hair removal practitioners will help to assess your best plan of action.

Since lasers only see dark hair, we also employ two licensed electrologists to serve our clients with blonde, red and gray hair. If you have dark hair, there is a good chance you are a candidate for laser hair removal. If you have light hair, or maybe a mixture of hair colors, we offer electrolysis, so that all our clients can live hair free for life!

It's important to know that not all laser hair removal specialists and clinics have the proper equipment to treat all skin types. But, here, at the Wilmington Laser Hair Removal and Skin Clinic, we house the latest in laser technology so that we can provide outstanding results for laser hair removal of all skin colors.

Wilmington Laser Hair Removal and Skin Clinic invests in new laser technology that allows for a better experience for our clients and better long-term, hair-free results.

So much so that our patients experience:

  • A decrease in the amount of pain associated with laser hair removal
  • Quicker appointment times
  • Less treatments overall which saves you time and money!

Another reason our customers love us is because we never make you sign a contract for your treatments so that you only pay for the services you NEED.

The best way to find out if you are a candidate for laser hair removal or electrolysis is to schedule a FREE 30 minute consultation. Our licensed laser hair removal practitioners and electrologists have a combined 25 years experience making men and women in Wilmington smooth and hair free.

When are you NOT a candidate for laser hair removal?

Lasers can only see dark hair. So in unique circumstances where hair removal is not recommended (normally due to certain medical conditions such as diabetes or lupus), often times electrolysis with one of our licensed electrologists is the prescribed solution to permanent hair removal.
