Wellaholic Research: Safety & Efficacy of SHR Laser Hair Removal in Chinese Women
Safety & Efficacy of SHR Laser Hair Removal in Chinese Women
Background & Objective
High-fluence diode lasers with contact cooling have emerged as the gold standard to remove unwanted hair. Lowering the energy should result in less pain and could theoretically affect the efficacy of the therapy.
Objective: To compare the safety and efficacy of a low fluence high repetition rate 810-nm diode laser to those of a high fluence, low repetition rate diode laser for permanent axillary or underarm hair removal in Chinese women.
Low fluence, high repetition rate diode laser can efficiently remove unwanted hair but also significantly improve tolerability and reduce adverse events during the course of treatment. This leads to higher heat safety but yet ensuring efficacy of treatments for Asian skin.
