BACKGROUND. The long‐term epilation of hair is the goal of several lasers and intense pulsed light systems. OBJECTIVE. The purpose of the study is to use the EpiLight Hair Removal System to assess long‐term epilation and to assess its safety profile following a single treatment session. METHODS. Patients received a single treatment with the Epilight Hair Removal System after entering the patient's skin type, skin color, hair color, and hair density into the system's computer software.

Hair removal with a second generation broad spectrum intense pulsed light source--a long-term follow-up.
TLDR
Because the follow up period of 8 months is twice the cycle time for hairs in the bikini line area, the obtained hair reduction in this study was long-lasting. Expand
Hair removal with a combined light/heat based photo-epilation system
TLDR
The SpaTouchÁ light heat based photoepilation system represents the newest efficient and safe method in hair removal and further study of optimal parameters is required. Expand
Long-term photoepilation using a broad-spectrum intense pulsed light source.
TLDR
The data document the long-term clinical efficacy of intense pulsed light source-induced hair removal in light and dark skin phenotypes. Expand
Hair Removal Using a 5‐msec Long‐Pulsed Ruby Laser
TLDR
A lower percentage of hair regrowth was observed in the facial region than on the trunk or legs and in dark hair compared to blond hair, and laser epilation provides a quick and relatively comfortable, but nonpermanent modality for hair removal with few side effects. Expand
One-year follow-up using an intense pulsed light source for long-term hair removal.
TLDR
Long-term epilation of 75% hair removal was found in this group of patients after 1 year with a single treatment of an intense pulsed light source. Expand
Hair removal using a combination radio‐frequency and intense pulsed light source
TLDR
The combination of optical energy and RF when delivered simultaneously achieves effective hair reduction with the use of less optical energy, allowing for the safe treatment of all skin types. Expand

TLDR
Combined radiofrequency and optical energy technology may produce effective photoepilation of blond and white hair phenotypes. Expand

TLDR
The present study demonstrates that this novel flashlamp‐based device is safe and effective for hair removal with a long‐term effect, and the bikini/axilla area responding better than the back. Expand
Long-term epilation with long-pulsed neodimium:YAG laser.
TLDR
This study proves that the long-pulsed Nd:Yag laser treatment produces an excellent prolonged epilation with no relevant side effects. Expand
Hair removal using a combination of conducted radiofrequency and optical energies–an 18‐month follow‐up

TLDR
The combined IPL (680–980 nm)/RF light source with contact cooling is a safe and effective method of long‐term hair reduction in patients of diversified skin types and varied hair colors and is associated with excellent patient safety. Expand

Damage to hair follicles by normal-mode ruby laser pulses.
TLDR
Selective photothermolysis of hair follicles with the normal-mode ruby laser produces a growth delay consistent with induction of prolonged telogen with apparently permanent hair removal in some cases. Expand
An experimental study to compare methods of eyelash ablation.
Epilation, electrolysis, cryotherapy, and argon laser thermal ablation were used to remove eyelashes of rabbits. Epilation and electrolysis were done in the standard fashion. Nitrous oxideExpand
Epilation of hair-bearing urethral grafts using the neodymium:YAG surgical laser.
TLDR
4 cases presenting with clinical problems directly related to hair-bearing urethral grafts successfully treated by neodymium:YAG laser epilation are reported. Expand
Experimental comparison of laser and cryosurgical cilia destruction.
TLDR
Cryosurgery with the argon is the best suited to the clinical treatment of trichiasis: it is widely available, more precise in limiting contiguous tissue destruction when delivered through a slit lamp, and is safer for use near the eye. Expand
Selective photothermolysis: precise microsurgery by selective absorption of pulsed radiation.
TLDR
Hemodynamic, histological, and ultrastructural responses are discussed and a simple, predictive model is presented, showing selective damage to cutaneous microvessels and melanosomes within melanocytes after selectively absorbed optical radiation pulses. Expand
Temporary hair removal in patients with hirsutism: a clinical study.
TLDR
It was found that shaving was the most helpful and most frequently used temporary method for hair removal and the use of hydrocortisone 1 percent cream was important in the management of any irritation due to hair removal techniques. Expand
Physical methods for the management of hirsutism.
TLDR
Clinical guidelines are presented for a successful consultation with patients undergoing electrolysis and thermolysis practice, which is a procedure with rare but potentially serious complications. Expand

TLDR
The advantages of visceral reconstruction may be overshadowed by the greater morbidity related to inraabdominal and thoracic surgery in debitated patients and the multidisciplinary surgical team may not be available. Expand
Prospective evaluation of the argon laser in the treatment of trichiasis.
TLDR
Permanence of eyelash destruction compared favorably with that reported for cryosurgery; complications were limited to minimal contour abnormalities and hypopigmentation. Expand
Hirsutism: evaluation and treatment.
TLDR
Once a neoplastic source is ruled out and hirsutism established as functional, essentially empiric treatment, including low-dose dexamethasone, oral contraceptives, and spironolactone, has proved to be effective. Expand
