10 Year Laser Hair Removal Update in Indian Skin

Laser Hair Removal in Indian Skin.

It is not often that someone with Indian skin updates us on their long-term laser hair removal before and after results. Getting someone to do so on a regular basis for 10 years is even rarer. Luckily, “Makeup by Megha” has done just that for us, and it is invaluable. She is of East Indian (or South Asian) ethnicity with a wheatish brown skin tone.

It is almost impossible to get to see results and hear testimonials from people with Indian skin types here in the US. Partly because they make up less than two percent of the population. The vast majority of laser hair removal testimonials come from people of Caucasian origin who have fair skin and dark body hair (the best possible combination to see excellent results). During the past few years, we are also seeing more laser hair removal reviews from African Americans.

Megha got laser hair removal on her whole body! At an unbelievably low cost of just $600 for 6 initial treatments. She went to Skin Matters in Atlanta, where the current full body laser hair removal price is $998 for 8 sessions. Megha advises to check Groupon and Living Social for discount specials.

Great Laser Hair Removal Results in an Indian Female

I am glad to hear that Megha is delighted with her results. It also seems like she did not get any of the dreaded side effects of using lasers on dark skin (e.g., hyperpigmentation).

In Megha’s 10 year results video report below, she even shows us some of her sparse remaining hair on her legs. Very impressive. I am guessing that she must have received treatment from old laser technology when she started 10 plus years ago.

According to her earlier videos, her first treatment involved the Polymer laser. Later ones involved the Candela laser (I assume the Nd:YAG version). I will ask her to elaborate. As is common, the armpits gave the best results in terms of permanency. However, I am also very impressed with the minimal new hair growth on her legs.

The following are some tips for choosing a qualified and experienced laser hair removal practitioner for Indian skin:

  • Make sure to check the practitioner’s experience and qualifications. Especially in treating people with Indian skin.
  • Ask about the practitioner’s success rate in treating ethnic skin types. Make sure to check out some before and after photos.
  • Ensure that the technician is adhering to laser device safety protocols.
  • Get an initial consultation before undergoing treatment.
