LHR is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. Multiple treatments are needed for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments may be needed. Laser hair removal is most effective in patients with light skin and dark hair.

Permanent hair reduction is achieved by using an 810 nm diode laser. Any area of the body that has hair can be treated with the exception of below the eyebrows.

Treatments work best on patients with dark hair.

6 to 8 treatments spaced every 4 to 6 weeks are typically required for the best results.
