This study was conducted to determine if laser hair removal treatments improve the quality of life for patients who suffer from excessive hair growth.
A convenience sample of 54 subjects using the Dermatology Quality of Life Index (DLQI) looked at their quality of life, pertaining to their skin, both before and after laser hair removal treatments were performed at some location on their bodies. The data was obtained over a five-month period. The results demonstrated that there is a statistical significant correlation between laser hair removal and improved quality of life, which support the outcomes of two previous studies. The data supports the concepts that: (a) laser hair removal is more than just an aesthetic procedure and (b) medical practitioners need to gain the awareness that laser hair removal treatments can be a recommended medical treatment for those who suffer from excessive hair growth.
