Can laser hair removal be done all skin types?

I hate body hairs especially the ones on my hand and under arms. I'm fed up of waxing them frequently as my hair grows back very fast. One of my friends suggested laser hair removal treatment, she said it's a permanent solution for hair removal. I'm planning to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist in Richmond Hill to discuss this in detail. But before that, I would like to know if this procedure can be done in all skin types.?

Unfortunately no, it requires the contrast of dark hairs and light skin.

An alternative is electrolysis, which works on all skin types, by zapping each individual hair, although is more painful and slower.
