Unwanted hair is a common problem in women. The condition may be caused by androgen overproduction, increased sensitivity to circulating androgens, or other metabolic and endocrine disorders, and should be properly evaluated. The use of lasers in hair removal allows selective targeting of the hair bulb and can diminish regrowth for at least 3 months. The energy of the laser converts into heat, causing the selective destruction of the hair bulb. The mechanism of action of lasers is discussed and the procedure described. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2011.
