Although the primary indication of Laser Hair Removal (LHR) is aesthetic removal of unwanted hair in both man and women with hirsutism and hypertrichosis, some dermatological conditions associated with hair follicular pathology as the primary dysfunction can be treat with laser using the same devices of LHR. Disorders associated with follicular inflammation, conditions associated with aberrant hair growth, either congenital or post-surgical, also require permanent hair removal or reduction.
Laser-induced damage and epilation of hair follicles is a promising therapy for these disorders.
Lasers for skin treatment work on the theory of “selective photothermolysis. The natural or artificial chromophores absorb monochromatic or broadband electromagnetic radiation of specific wavelengths.
The chromophore employed in laser hair reduction is melanin. Melanin absorbs light in the range of 690 to 1000 nm, and lasers in this range of wavelengths can be effectively used for hair reduction.
