Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the U.S. today. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), laser hair removal was the #3 non-surgical cosmetic treatment in 2009, and was performed over 1.2 million times for U.S. hair removal patients alone!
But in spite of the frequency and prevalence of laser hair removal, it's worth noting that not all hair removal patients use the same laser hair removal technology to remove their unwanted hair. Today's hair laser industry is constantly growing, and thus it can be difficult to keep track of all the new hair laser models and impressive new laser manufacturers.
To help hair removal patients stay informed about their options, we've compiled a list of today's top laser manufacturers and their most current laser technology systems. By becoming knowledgeable of these laser systems, and discussing them with your hair removal provider, it increases the odds of selecting the best, and most appropriate, laser system for you!
This is not a complete list of all laser brands available today. However, according to our research, this list includes the most popular and/or active manufacturers in today's laser hair removal industry:
The laser systems listed under each manufacturer may not represent the company's entire line of laser systems. Those listed include the newest or most current hair laser systems offered by the selected manufacturers. In other words, if your hair removal clinic doesn't use one of the laser systems named above, that doesn't conclude that theirs is poor or less effective.
Additionally, many of the hair laser manufacturers we've named, such as Candela, Cutera, Lumenis and Syneron, also produce laser systems for skin rejuvenation, acne treatment and tattoo removal, in addition to hair removal.
To learn more about hair removal lasers, or to find out which one is best for you, we recommend going in for a hair removal consultation with an expert laser hair removal provider in your area!
