In the past, methods for hair removal included plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis and chemical depilatories. Some are painful, some are messy, all of them are time consuming and are associated with high cost.
Lumenis LightSheer family of permanent hair reduction products offers unparalleled treatment speed and efficacy with optimal patient comfort. LightSheer is more than 75% faster than the average hair reduction session, and also features the unique HIT and ChillTip technologies for pain relief. Additionally, LightSheer is a smart economical choice, saving you money spent of temporary hair removal solutions.
Multiple treatments are required to achieve permanent hair reduction. This is due to the increased effect of the laser on hair in the early growth stage. Not all the hairs are in the same phase at a given time. By spreading out the treatments every 4-6 weeks, we can treat more follicles as they get to this stage.
The appearance of the treated area following treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on the characteristics of the patient and the treatment given.
During the treatment, some hairs will shed from the follicle immediately, while the remaining will shed in the following weeks. Transient redness and swelling around the hair follicle may appear immediately after the treatment, but are in fact, positive results indicating the follicle's response to the treatment.
Do not wax or pluck if you are planning laser treatment. This will cause you to need more treatments for good results. Hairs cannot be treated if they are plucked. Do not tan or use artificial tanning on the area to be treated.
The LightSheer uses a 805nm diode laser, which ensures safety for all skin types. Repeated pulses target existing hair, creating a direction of energy into the hair follicles that prevent future growth.
Multiple treatments are required for best results
