Laser Hair Removal

You can achieve permanent hair reduction through treatment with the LightSheer™ diode laser. The LightSheer™ diode laser is a state-of-the art system specially designed to remove unwanted hair faster, with less discomfort and more reliability than other methods. If you are have darker, coarser hair in places that make you uncomfortable- like on the face, neck, abdomen, legs, bikini area, or underarms in women or on the shoulders, chest, and back in men, it may be time to consider laser hair removal.

A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted by the LightSheer™ diode laser is well absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. During the procedure, 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. This process also treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously. Therefore, LightSheer™ is appropriate for treating even the largest areas of the body both quickly and effectively.

An important part of the laser hair removal procedure is the cooling of the skin. A special contact-cooling hand piece allows the physician to treat even the most sensitive skin. It protects and cools the upper layer of the skin before, during, and after each laser pulse while directing the laser energy to the hair root.

Successful permanent hair reduction is accomplished by treating the same area with a series of four to six treatments.
