Carbon Dye Laser Hair Removal

So what is carbon dye laser hair removal? It’s a process in which we apply a special dye to your skin before we remove unwanted hair with our state-of-the-art laser technology. The dye makes the treated area appear darker than normal for several days after treatment; then it fades away. You can expect to start seeing results within three weeks of your first session; after six sessions (which usually take place over the course of about four months), you’ll see about 90% reduction in visible hair growth on treated areas.

Carbon Hair Dye: Instead of using regular hair dye, some laser technicians may opt to treat light-haired patients with a special carbon dye. This carbon dye is rubbed directly onto the skin’s surface to ensure it reaches the follicles. Dark-haired patients may also use carbon dye to increase energy absorption from the laser and produce more effective hair removal.

In this post, we’ll also examine electrolysis hair removal and deess laser hair removal instructions.

Carbon Dye Laser Hair Removal

Cosmetic Laser and Intense Pulsed Light devices are effective in permanent hair removal because they destroy the capacity of the follicle to produce a hair. The hair itself, particularly light colored hair, is a poor transmitter of the photon energy that needs to reach the follicle in order to do its job. Even dark hair has only about a 50% efficiency rating in turning the laser or pulsed light energy into the heat that is needed to destroy the follicle.

While diode lasers and intense pulsed light systems can be used without hair being removed or shaved before the treatment has begun, many practitioners remove the hair prior to treatment, either by waxing or tweezing the area to be treated. With the follicle empty, the carbon dye is not only necessary, the end result is much more effective.

The dye prepares the empty hair follicle to have up to 99% of the photon energy focused on the follicle tissue below the skin, resulting in a much more effective treatment, and a client who is much more pleased with the practitioner’s work.

Laser hair removal is a hair removal procedure that concentrates laser energy on hair follicles. The pigment in the hair attracts the laser to target the follicles and prevents future hair growth in that area. 

Does this mean that dying (or dyeing, as it would be correctly used) light hair with a darker color helps with laser hair removal? Experts think that dying hair won’t affect the laser hair removal because the hair dye normally does not reach into the hair follicle.

This article will explain the science of hair dye and how laser hair removal works, as well as alternatives for removing hairs that are not dark in color.

The Science of Laser Hair Removal 

Among all the hair removal options available in the market today, laser hair removal stands out from processes such as waxing, threading, shaving, or tweezing because it can help remove or reduce unwanted body hair almost permanently. 

Laser hair removal utilizes pulses of highly concentrated laser beams into specific target cells: hair follicles. These are located in the part of the hair known as the hair bulge, and these cells are responsible for producing hair. The light emitted from the laser is converted into heat, which damages these hair follicles. 

Destroying these follicles either permanently stops the hair in the area from growing, or permanently reduces the density of the hair. This means that if the hair grows back, it will be much finer and thinner. Other factors that determine if hair will be completely removed or reduced include:

  • The type and quality of the laser used: Different types of lasers are built for various hair and skin colors, as will be discussed later on. 
  • The color of the patient’s skin: Patients with dark hair and dark skin will need a special laser with longer wavelengths and pulse widths. This is because ordinary lasers have shorter wavelengths, which the hair and skin absorb too quickly and sometimes lead to skin discoloration. Most laser hair removal works best for patients with light skin and dark body hair. 
  • The number of times the procedure is done: Multiple sessions are needed to prevent any hair follicles from growing back. As hairs have growth, resting, and fall-out phases, the sessions must be done within a patient’s hair growth phase or around every month. 
  • The abilities of the aesthetician conducting the procedure: A licensed and trained esthetician will not only have the ability to keep your skin safe from burns and scars, but will also know how to maximize the treatment for you with the right machine and technique. 

Hair Color Also Matters 

Hair color is an important factor in a laser hair treatment because the pigment in dark hair is what attracts the laser to go all the way down to the follicle. The heat and the energy directed at dark hair destroy the follicle and prevent regrowth. Patients with dark, coarser hair achieve greater success in hair removal because more concentrated energy is emitted into the follicle. 

Why Dyeing Doesn’t Help 

Since lighter colored hairs have far less pigment, the laser energy absorbed will be insufficient to prevent future hair regrowth. While some patients observed their hairs thinned in a specific area after treatment, results (if any) often vary. 

Theoretically, dyeing your hair would be able to give the hair pigment. However, hair dye cannot reach the follicles all the way down, which means the laser will not reach to destroy them either. Ordinary lasers will not be effective for patients with the following hair colors: 

  • Blonde
  • Red
  • Grey 
  • White

Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis is a popular hair removal treatment that is considered one of the most effective methods for permanent hair removal. This procedure involves a trained electrologist inserting a thin wire into the hair follicle under the surface of the skin. Once the wire is in place, an electric current is applied, which moves down the wire to the bottom of the follicle. This electric current effectively destroys the hair root, preventing future hair growth in that follicle.

The process of electrolysis is precise and can target individual hair follicles, making it an ideal treatment for small areas or unwanted stray hairs. The electric current’s follicle damage not only prevents hair from growing back but also causes the existing hair to fall out naturally. This results in smooth and hair-free skin in the treated areas.

One of the key benefits of electrolysis is its ability to provide long-lasting results. Unlike other hair removal methods, electrolysis can permanently remove unwanted hair when performed correctly. This makes it a popular choice for individuals looking for a permanent solution to their hair removal needs.

While electrolysis is effective, it is important to note that multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired results. The number of sessions needed can vary depending on factors such as the thickness of the hair, the size of the treatment area, and individual skin type. Additionally, some discomfort may be experienced during the procedure, but most patients find the sensation to be tolerable.

Overall, electrolysis is a safe and effective method for permanent hair removal. By working with a trained electrologist, individuals can achieve smooth, hair-free skin in their desired treatment areas. Whether targeting small facial hairs or larger body areas, electrolysis offers a reliable solution for those looking to say goodbye to unwanted hair for good.

Advantages of Electrolysis

  • Permanent hair removal
  • Precision in targeting individual hair follicles
  • Safe and effective method
  • Long-lasting results

Deess Laser Hair Removal Instructions

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is the most advanced and popular technology applied for hair removal purpose. Initially, it was used at professional dermatology centers and top salons and spas. The clinically proven IPL technology has received millions of positive feedback from around the world for more than 20 years. The over-the-counter hair removal device gives you complete body hair removal care by treating body hair not only from small areas, like underarms, facial hair, and below the chin line, but also from large areas like arms and legs. Perfectly suitable for people Fitzpatrick Skin Tone I-V, it works best on dark hair.

As a professional manufacturer, it supplies products to more than 120 countries for plastic surgeons, dermatologists, physicians, and healthcare professionals.


You should use DEESS IPL once a week for the first 12 weeks, to ensure all of the hair follicles are treated. As hair grows in different phases, it’s important to continue your weekly treatments to ensure the chosen area has been thoroughly treated. With regular and consistent treatments, you’ll notice fewer hairs growing back. Any hair that does grow back will be finer, lighter in colour and will grow much more slowly.

After 12 weeks, you’ll only need to complete top-up treatments as and when they are required. This is usually only once every 4–8 weeks, which is hugely different from shaving 2–5 times a week. Everyone’s treatment regimen will differ, as it can entirely depend on your skin, hair type and even lifestyle. However, as time goes on, you should be able to replace your shaving routine completely.
