Abstract

Lasers for hair removal are a fast-growing area in cosmetic dermatology. Selective photothermolysis allows for targeting of specific chromophores while minimizing cutaneous damage. Treatment of individuals should be individualized based on anatomical area, skin and hair color, by varying the wavelength, fluence, pulse duration, spot size, and cooling technique of the laser.
