Many techniques are currently available for hair removal. Techniques for permanent hair removal, however, remain elusive. Laser hair removal has become a popular technique in both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Laser hair removal can be performed on an outpatient basis. The efficacy of hair removal is difficult to study given the tremendous variation in laser techniques, but short-term data is promising.
