Many new laser and light sources have been developed for removal of unwanted body and facial hair. A multiple wavelength pulsed-intense light source (Epilight) has been shown to be effective for long-lasting hair removal. This system is most effective on patients with dark hair and light skin. Further studies are needed to fully elucidate the role of the pulsed-intense light source in permanent hair removal.
