Hair Removal

For people who are tired of shaving, tweezing, and waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal has become the preferred option—and a beautiful solution. Hair removal continues to be the #1 requested energy-based aesthetic treatment. Worldwide procedure volume is expected to grow from 12.2 MM in 2013 to 12.9 MM in 2016, with a CAGR of 0.5%1.

While hair removal is most popular among women — with virtually all of them aged 12 and over engaging in the practice on a regular basis — laser hair removal for men is an ever-increasing group, as men seek treatment for areas such as their chests and backs. Tap into this growing market by offering laser hair removal in your practice, and reap the benefits.

Overview

Laser Hair Removal

During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.

Wavelengths for Hair Removal

The classic 755 nm wavelength has high melanin absorption characteristics and proven long-term results for pigmented lesion removal and hair reduction, permanently reducing hair by an average of 79% after just three treatments.1

The 1064nm Nd:YAG wavelength is the safest wavelength for permanent hair reduction on darker skin types and tanned skin2 and is the wavelength of choice for treating facial and leg veins, the most common form of vascular lesions.

Some lasers, including Cynosure’s Elite , offer two optimal wavelengths in one system. This allows you to switch between wavelengths during a single procedure and select the most appropriate laser for any given hair or skin type. You can also perform multiple procedures on the same client during the same visit.

In addition, selected Cynosure lasers also offer the exclusive Multiplex technology.

Multiplexing sequentially fires more than one wavelength to achieve outstanding clinical results with lower fluence required for each respective wavelength. This gives you great flexibility in your treatments, especially when treating patients with darker skin types.
