Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Based on the principle of selective photothermolysis, laser hair removal targets the entire hair structure, from the hair shaft down to the follicle. Light energy with a specific wavelength is absorbed by the endogenous chromosphere melanin, resulting in the rapid heating and subsequent local thermal necrosis of the follicles’ regenerative structures.
To achieve permanent hair reduction, the laser system must be able to effectively treat all skin types, while providing maximum skin protection. Lighter skin types are mainly treated with 755nm (Alexandrite) or 808 nm (diodes laser) while darker skin types are mainly treated with 1060/1064 nm, which is available on both diode and solid state lasers. The laser’s wavelength, fluence, pulse duration and spot size determine the effectiveness of the treatment and also influence the depth of penetration and treatment speed.
Laser Hair Removal Market
Laser hair removal is still one of the most popular aesthetic procedures. The treatment has gained acceptance globally and has become the standard for both women and men of all ages from early teens upward.
Due to technological advances, laser hair removal is now even quicker, more convenient and more affordable than ever before – enabling the fast treatment of larger areas with minimal discomfort and no downtime.
As a result the hair removal market is growing at a rapid pace, its popularity makes it an excellent way get patients through the door. It gives treatment providers the opportunity to expand their patient base, penetrate new demographics and increase the opportunities of upselling additional treatments and strengthening other revenue streams.

Permanent Hair Reduction
Permanent hair reduction is defined as the long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing when measured at 6, 9 and 12 months after the completion of a treatment regime. Fitzpatrick skin types I – VI, including tanned skin.
