Patient satisfaction after treatment using hair removal lasers has been different. The aim of this study was to investigate the satisfactaion rates of the patients with hirsutism after being treated with a diode laser. Methods: In this study satisfaction rates of 50 women with hirsutism were evaluated based on an audio-visual evaluation in Haj Daii clinic in Kermanshah, Iran. Results: Fifty patients with a maen±standard deviation age of 32.5±9.2 years were categorized in three groups in accordance with their skin phototypes. Patient satisfaction after using laser diode hair removal with 25-40 J/cm2 was 74.6%. The most common side effect was transient post laser erythema (28.3%). The highest satisfaction rate was obtained in patients who were taking hormone regulating drugs (85.0%). The lowest satisfaction was obtained in patients with irregular menstrual cycle who were not taking any hormon drugs (73.3%). There was a direct correlation between the number of laser sessions and patients satisfaction (r=0.51, P<0.05).
