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.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.
Benefits of laser hair removal include:
Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
Predictability. Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.
How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is more than just ”zapping” unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure that requires training to perform and carries potential risks. Before getting laser hair removal, you should thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor or technician performing the procedure.
If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking.
You should also avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely.
What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal
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.
