Laser Safety in Hair Removal

ABSTRACT

The use of lasers for hair removal has been studied for a number of years. In this procedure, laser light is absorbed by melanin in the hair shaft, damaging the follicular epithelium. A clinical study evaluated the use of the LightSheer™ Diode Laser for hair removal. Of 92 patients, all had temporary hair loss and 89% had permanent hair reduction. Regrowing hairs were shown to be thinner and lighter than previously. Extensive clinical use of this high-power, pulsed diode laser has resulted in recommendations for patient selection and proper use of the laser. Appropriate fluence settings have been shown to cause permanent hair reduction without damaging the epidermis, regardless of skin type. – laser_principles_aspects.opt.pdf
