Laser Hair Removal LightSheer
Stop shaving, waxing or feeling embarrassed, and take control of unwanted, uncomfortable body hair. The LightSheer diode laser is designed to permanently remove hair virtually anywhere on the body for both men and women with less discomfort and more reliability than other methods.
During a treatment, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, long enough to heat-up the hair and significantly impede the follicle’s ability to re-grow. Capable of treating numerous hair follicles simultaneously, the LightSheer diode laser is appropriate for treating the largest areas of the body, both quickly and effectively. Many patients notice an 80-90% reduction in the amount of unwanted hair after three to six treatments.
If you’re ready to stop tweezing, bleaching and suffering with unwanted, embarrassing body hair, then schedule a consultation today for LightSheer diode laser treatments.
The LightSheer is FDA approved for permanent hair removal.
+ Frequently Asked Questions
How does the LightSheer™ Diode Laser System work? The system emits near-infrared laser light that is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed, or turned on, for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle, while the system’s unique, patented contact-cooling handpiece, the ChillTip™, helps protect the skin by conductive cooling during the laser energy delivery.
Why is the LightSheer™ Diode Laser System better than other methods? The LightSheer™ Diode Laser System’s design provides for enhanced comfort during treatment, minimal risk of infection, speed and accuracy. Since the system uses a unique cooling handpiece, it minimizes skin irritation that other methods may create. Since it is non-invasive (no needles to penetrate the skin), the risk of introducing bacteria into the skin is reduced. Finally, the LightSheer™ Diode Laser is a precise instrument that can be adjusted to damage only the hair follicle while minimally affecting the surrounding skin.
Does the LightSheer™ work on different skin types? The LightSheer™ Diode Laser System safely and effectively treats all skin types. For darker skin types, appropriate fluences are generally lower and appropriate pulse widths are generally longer to prevent damage to the epidermis. Using the appropriate treatment parameters, however, people with all skin types can benefit from laser hair removal with the LightSheer™.
What should I expect during and after treatment? The length of a laser treatment may last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. Because the laser tends to treat hair follicles that are in an active growth phase, more than one treatment may be required to disable hair follicles that subsequently enter this growth phase. Side effects, if any, are minor. They may include mild temporary redness and swelling around the hair follicle, which are, in fact, desired clinical results that indicate the follicle has responded to the treatment. These side effects may last from a few hours to 2-3 days, but are generally quite mild and not bothersome to most people.
The laser treatment itself can cause a slight tingling sensation. Most patients tolerate the procedure well. But because some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, topical anesthesia can be an option.
The appearance of the treated area immediately after a laser session will vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of treatment and skin type. Immediate after-effects, if any, are minor. They may include redness and swelling, which disappear in a short time. Most people return to normal activity right away.
