One underreported, rare side effect of laser hair removal, is paradoxical hypertrichosis. It is largely unknown what the long-term outcomes are of patients who develop this complication. We report a 21-year-old, Fitzpatrick II, male patient, who had patchy areas of dark hair affecting various body areas. An Alexandrite 755 nm laser was used to address the desired areas at energies between 20-22 J/cm(2) at 10-12 week intervals over a course of 7 treatments. After 3 treatments, the patient noted a significant increase in the density and length of hairs involving the back, shoulders, neck and upper arms...

Laser ablation is recently suggested as a most effective and reliable technique for depigmentation of melanin hyperpigmented gingiva. To date, different lasers have been used for gingival depigmentation (CO2, diode, Nd:YAG, Er:YAG and Er,Cr:YSGG lasers). The use of Er:YAG laser for depigmentation of melanin hyperpigmented gingiva has gained increasing importance in recent years. The purpose of this study was to report removal of gingival melanin pigmentation using an Er:YAG laser in a literature review. The main outcomes, such as improvement of signs (clinical parameters of bleeding, erythema, swelling and wound healing), symptoms (pain) and melanin recurrence/repigmentation were measured...
