Our aim was to determine the most effective treatment parameters for laser-assisted hair removal using long-pulsed Nd:YAG-lasers. 42 volunteers were treated with 1064 nm long-pulsed Nd:YAG-lasers. We used two different laser systems (Lyra XP, Wavelight and Smartepil II Deka-LMS) with various pulse lengths, fluences, and spot sizes. For each parameter, five test areas were treated one to five times at 4-week intervals. Follow-ups were performed 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after the last treatment… CONTINUE READING
