Abstract

Excess hair is an age-old condition plaguing both men and women alike, of all races. Conditions such as hirsutism or hypertrichosis, procedures that involve grafted donor sites, transsexual transformations from male to female, and genetics are all responsible for excess or unwanted hair. Previous options for people seeking to remove or lessen the presence of hair have either been painful or resulted in short-term hair removal. With the recent advent of laser technology, hair removal has been added to the many capabilities of the new generation nonablative lasers and light systems. Lasers are not yet a permanent solution for hair removal, but they are able to provide a safe, fast, and effective method of hair reduction.
