Laser Smooth Company_The Evolution Of Laser Hair Removal

The first ruby laser was developed in 1960 and was a treatment that claimed to erase birthmarks, tattoos, skin conditions, tumors, and, last but certainly not least, unwanted hair.

The ruby laser was not successful as a definitive treatment for the many maladies it claimed to treat, but less than a decade later non-laser photo epilators were developed. They also proved to be less than effective, prompting its removal from the market in 1972.

By the 1980’s, lasers became more specialized, developed for very specific treatments, paving the way for the permanent hair removal lasers of the 1990s.

By 1997, several different kinds of lasers were FDA-approved and hair removal laser therapy began to develop into the effective method it has become today.

At Laser Smooth, we employ the Light Sheer Duet Laser. This laser uses a process called Selective Photothermalysis (or target destruction).  Because each individual hair cell on the body can be found in a different stage of growth (anagen, catagen, or telogen), the process of permanent hair reduction can take between 4 to 8 treatments spread out over 4 to 6 weeks between each treatment.
