The Evolution of Hair Removal

Posted on March 19, 2018 by Dr Elenora Fedoneko

Hair removal has been practiced across cultures for centuries. The women of Ancient Egypt would use pumice stones and seashells to remove unwanted hair from their bodies. Upper classes of the Roman Empire correlated excessive body hair with poverty. The elites of Roman society would use razors made from flint to keep themselves well-groomed and clean shaven. This tradition can still be seen in Roman sculptures and paintings as artists often depicted hairless human bodies.


Although the tools of hair removal have changed dramatically over time, the desire to have a smooth, hair free skin has remained. Luckily, we now can utilize laser technology to safely and effectively remove unwanted body hair.


How does laser hair removal work?

A laser hair removal system uses a beam of high-intensity light to destroy hair follicles deep within the skin. The laser can effectively target and remove hair follicles without damaging the surrounding tissues.


Who can benefit from this treatment?

Earlier generations of lasers were limited to patients with a lighter skin tone. Fortunately, newer laser hair removal systems can now successfully treat patients with darker skin tones as well.


How many treatments will I need?

Generally, you can expect to have at least 6-8 treatments to achieve good results.
