Method for hair removal

A method for hair removal from a skin area by selective photo-inactivation of the pilo-sebaceous apparatus using ALA, derivatives of ALA, for example those with alkylene-glycol chains. Selectivity of the method is further enhanced by treatment of the epidermis by agents reducing PpIX levels in the epidermis. Side effects are diminished by using short drug/light intervals.
