What's your number? The Fitzpatrick Scale & Laser Hair Removal

Posted by Shauntel Greene on Oct 20, 2011 2:59:00 PM

Among the various services and treatments Sona offers, laser hair removal is the most popular. Laser hair removal has the ability to remove unwanted hair from virtually any part of the body. Many of our clients reach out to us because they have grown tired of temporary hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing, and electrolysis. They have found successful solutions with Sona... willingly tossing out razors, shaving creams and tweezers because of their satisfying results. You can be next, but before you join this revolution, you may have a few questions.

Each day we receive a number of different inquiries about laser hair removal treatments.

  • Is my hair too light for laser hair removal?
  • Is my skin too dark?
  • Am I a good candidate?

Maybe some of these questions have crossed your mind as well. Answers to these questions can be found in the Fitzpatrick scale. The Fitzpatrick scale lists complexion types and their tolerance of sunlight. Fitzpatrick types are determined by the color of the eyes, color of hair, reaction of skin to sun exposure and most importantly; ethnic background. All of these factors are imperative for Sona consultants to determine which treatment protocol will be most effective for you.

Laser hair removal at Sona is not a one size fits all procedure. Your treatment parameters will be decided after careful consideration and assessment. At Sona, our treatment providers have received the highest quality training and are certified to provide you with safe and effective treatment recommendations based on your individual needs.
