Laser Hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair through exposure to pulses of laser light that destroys the follicle and appeals to both women and men. This method was investigated experimentally for about 20 years before it became commercially available in the mid-1990.
Laser waxing has become popular because of its speed and efficiency and is performed by mapping a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration to achieve the maximum result in the targeted tissue with the smallest effects on the surrounding tissue. Modern laser technology can target melanin by selectively heating the area where hair growth is increased, hitting only hair follicles without harming the rest of the skin.
Laser hair removal with alexandrite has been fda approved since 1997 “as a technology of permanent decrease of hair growth” Through this medical procedure a constant reduction of hair growth is carried out after each conference and after the completion of the therapy cycle, maintenance sessions are required with less frequency and for smaller areas as hair growth has significantly reduced. As all skin types do not have the same needs each patient needs to be checked for suitability and then the appropriate type of laser is chosen, the dermatologist’s assistance is necessary as is the case evaluation. The experience and skill of the operator should in any case be a prerequisite.
