1060nm Laser Effective for Hair Removal on All Skin Types
A recent study of Lumenis' Inifinity 1,060nm diode laser revealed that the device is effective and offers a good safety profile for laser hair removal on all skin types. Authors Edward V.

Subjects underwent one of two treatment regimens. Sixteen patients had six treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, using a chilled sapphire tip handpiece. The second group had seven treatments, spaced six weeks apart, using a large spot size, vacuum-based handpiece.
Hair count, hair coarseness and hair color in the treatment area were assessed at baseline and at follow-up visits. An investigator evaluated immediate skin responses and adverse events at every visit, and subjects were asked to report treatment-associated pain levels at each vsit. One subgroup within the large spot size, vacuum‐assisted...
