The most effective solution for dark coarse hair appearing in places such as the face, neck, abdomen, breasts, legs and underarms is the new Light Sheer Diode Laser. This is the world’s most advanced treatment of unwanted hair replacing conventional plucking, shaving, waxing or chemical depilatories. The time and amount of treatments vary from person to person.
In the past, the usual remedies for unwanted hair were plucking, shaving, waxing, or chemical depilatories. Some are painful, some are messy, and all are only temporary.
For long-term hair removal, electrolysis is popular and effective but can be uncomfortable and slow. Hair by hair, an electric current passes through a needle to destroy the hair root’s ability to grow. It typically takes months or more of regular visits — even for small areas, like the upper lip.
Now there’s a more effective solution, the new LightSheer Diode Laser, a state-of-the-art system specially designed to remove unwanted hair faster, with less discomfort, and more reliably than many other methods.
A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. Different types of lasers produce different colors of light. The color of light produced by a particular laser is one of the keys to its effect on hair follicles.
The light emitted by the LightSheer Diode Laser is well absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling numerous follicles at a time to eliminate or significantly impede the hair’s regrowth.
Importantly, LightSheer’s special contact-cooling handpiece is perfect for a woman’s sensitive skin. It protects and cools the upper layer of the skin before, during, and after each pulse while directing the laser energy to the hair root. The combination of this aggressive skin cooling and other key laser parameters allows safe and effective treatment of all skin colors.
What you can expect
The length of a laser session may be 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.
Laser treatment itself may 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.
