Abstract Background & aim: Hirsutism can esthetically cause significant psychosocial consequences in hirsute women. Different methods, so far, have been applied for hair removal, and the Cool Intense Pulsed Light (CIPL) system is one of them. The aim of this study was to determine the effect and side effects of the CIPL method on removing the hairs of the chin area in hirsute women. Methods: This is a interventional study in which 30 women suffering from hirsutism referred to a dermatologist's clinic in Yasuj, Iran were participated during 2009-2010. A convenience sampling method was used for data collection. Subjects underwent the Cool Intense Pulsed Light method over 6 months, one session per month . To compare the effect of the applied intervention, number of hair on the chin area were compared before and after the intervention Collected data were analyzed by the SPSS software using descriptive and analytic statistics such as t-test, paired t-test and ANOVA, considering α=0.05. Results: The duration of affliction with hirsutism was 1-15 year. The mean number of hairs of the chin area before and after the intervention were 288.2± 229.2 and 56.4± 43.8 respectively. Paired T-test analysis revealed that the difference is significant (p=0.001). None of the participants reported any specific problems related to the applied intervention.
