Laser hair reduction (LHR) has proved to be a safe and effective means of getting rid of unwanted hair. The term permanent hair reduction is more appropriate and informative than the term permanent hair removal. Variety of lasers are now available to successfully reduce unwanted hair. Hair removal lasers have been in use since 1997 and have been approved for "Permanent Hair Reduction" in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Under the FDA's definition,"Permanent" hair reduction is the long term stable reduction in the number of hair regrowing after a treatment regime.
HAIR GROWTH CYCLE
The hair contains melanin only in anagen phase of development and thus are susceptible to injury. During a particular point of time,not all hair are in anagen phase, hence multiple treatments are necessary to treat all the hair follicles. Laser works on the hair in the anagen phase. The spacing between the session is done on the basis of the hair cycle of that particular area.

Ans. Excessive and unwanted body hair range in severity and can usually be classified as either Hypertrichosis or Hirsutism.
Hirsutism is defined as the abnormal growth of terminal hair in women in male –pattern (androgen/hormone dependent sites), such as the face and chest.
Hypertrichosis refers to excess hair growth at any body site that is not androgen-dependent.
Ans. Laser hair reduction is based on the principle of Selective Photothermolysis.
The target of the lasers for hair reduction is the stem cells in the bulge and bulb area of the unwanted hair. The laser light is given at such intensity to damage the target melanin.i.e.the melanin in the hair follicle without affecting the melanin in the adjoining skin.
Ans. A wide array of lasers including alexandrite, diode, Nd:YAG & IPL are being used for laser hair reduction . The choice of laser depends upon the skin & hair type ,previous treatments taken etc. Sometimes a combination of lasers are used to attain the best results especially if patient has both thick & fine hair.
Ans. Melanin absorbs light broadly across the optical spectrum ranging from 250-1200nm.
Longer wavelengths have deeper penetration, hence these reach the bulb and bulge area of the hair and are safe even in dark skinned individuals . Hence the wavelengths ranging from 800 nm to 1000nm are considered optimum for hair reduction in dark skinned individuals.

An ideal patient is the one with coarse, dark ,terminal hair in absence of underlying hormonal imbalance and has realistic expectations.
Patient counselling , Expectation alignment and informed consent:
In our centre, we clearly explain all pros & cons of the procedure to the patient in the beginning and before every subsequent session that the laser would give a very good delay of growth ,decrease the number of hair and make the hair finer but it will not cause removal of all the hair.
The patient is being informed regarding the gap between the sessions (according to the body part being treated). In between the sessions, the patient can theoretically use hair removing creams or shave/ trim the area. It is advisable to avoid using Hair removal creams as irritant reactions are very common.
The patients are being informed regarding the number of sessions, requirement of maintenance sessions and the total cost of the procedure. In case of any hormonal imbalances, concomittant therapy may be needed.
Ans. Ideally all females with hirsutism, especially showing signs of hormonal imbalance in the reproductive age group should be investigated between 2 and 5 day of cycle. If the patient is suspected to be having hirsutism due to underlying polycystic ovarian disease, a complete work up is done including the ultrasound pelvis to rule out polycystic ovarian disease(PCOD) along with hormonal profile.
Appropriate medical therapy is initiated and patient is aligned regarding the more number of sessions that would be required.
Ans. The patients are advised not to carry out any parlour activity like waxing, threading, plucking or bleach 3 weeks before the first session and in between the sessions. Use of hair removing creams is discouraged due to the chances of irritant reaction.
The patients are allowed to shave in between the sessions. The patients can use bleach with 1 month gap before and after the session, when the gap between sessions is more than 3 months and during the maintenance phase.
Ans. Generally the procedure is very well tolerated with a little rubber band snapping sensation . However, topical anaesthetic creams are available.
They are used especially for sensitive areas, e.g. pubic region. The need for topical anesthesia is variable among patients and anatomic sites.

Ans. There can be mild- transient erythema and perifollicular edema. A steroid antibiotic cream can be used.
Ans. The best time to evaluate the effect of laser session is 2-3 weeks post the session.
Ans. 1.The patients with fine/ gray /blonde/light brown hair have inadequate pigment in hair hence do not respond well.
2 .Low energy machine which is not delivering the right energy is another factor for non-response.
3. Underlying hormonal disturbances is also a reason for suboptimal response.
In very few cases persistent erythema, vesiculation, crusting, hyperpigmentation ,hypopigmentation & permanent scarring can occur.
Paradoxical hair stimulation can occur as a side effect especially in previously diagnosed hormonal conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome , emphasizing the importance of history taking & proper patient selection in laser hair removal . The paradoxical hair stimulation also occurs probably due to lower-range fluence in some lasers.
2. Maintenance Session : These are regular laser sessions done at frequency of 1-3 times per year.
