The LightSheer™ diode laser is a state of the art system specifically designed to remove unwanted hair faster, with less discomfort and more reliably than any other method - and it permanently reduces your unwanted hair.
How does Lightsheer™ work?
A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted by the LightSheer™ diode laser is well absorbed by the pigment (melanin) located in the hair follicles (melanin pigments give hair its colour) and hair shaft. Prior to the procedure, the area is shaved. Then the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to heat up the hair and significantly impede the follicle’s ability to re-grow – but not long enough to damage the surrounding skin. The LightSheer™ diode laser’s special contact-cooling handpiece further protects the epidermis (upper layer of skin). This patented method of epidermal preservation allows delivery of more laser energy deeper into the hair follicle.
Why is Lightsheer the selected laser?
The LightSheer™ Diode Laser Hair Removal 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. It is non-invasive (no needles to penetrate the skin), therefore the risk of introducing bacteria into the skin is reduced. Because the system is fast, it allows for larger areas to be treated, considerably increasing the efficiency of the hair removal process. Finally, the LightSheer™ Diode Laser Hair Removal is a precise instrument that can be adjusted to damage only the hair follicle while minimally affecting the surrounding skin.
How many Laser Hair Removal Treatments?
Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time. They actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. The LightSheer™ works by disabling hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments are necessary to disable all hair follicles in a given area. Treatments are usually given at intervals of 8-12 weeks, depending on the particular area of the body being treated and the density of the hair in that area.
