Laser Hair Removal
During the laser hair removal procedure a focused beam of light emitted by the laser is absorbed only into the pigment located in the hair follicle. The light is pulsed for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to disable the follicle, but not so long that excess heat is transferred to the skin surrounding the hair. When the hair follicle absorbs the light, it is destroyed. Laser facial hair removal is an appropriate procedure for women and men who have unwanted hair on the facial area. This procedure may also be used on other body parts.
A topical anesthetic may be applied to the treated area few minutes prior to the treatment. Everyone in the room will use eye protection. Laser hair Removal Treatment consists of placing a small hand-piece near the skin and administering laser pulses over the area to be treated. The procedure can take as little as 10 minutes or up to an hour (or more), depending on the area treated.
Laser Hair Removal is a faster, gentler way to remove unwanted hair, with great results. Laser Hair Removal light targets the melanin in the hair follicles that lie beneath the skin. The light bypasses the skin and heats the hair, right down to the bottom of the root, destroying it without damaging surrounding tissue or skin. As long as there is some color in your hair (even blond hair has enough color), then our laser hair removal system will be effective, leaving your skin smooth and hair free.
Hair removal is quick and effective. Most clients report no more discomfort than a quick pinching sensation. Due to the natural growth cycles of your hair, six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart are generally required for a completely successful course of laser hair removal treatment

Q: How does the Light Sheer Diode Laser System work?
A: The system emits near-infrared laser light that is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed, or turned on, for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle, while the system’s unique, patented contact-cooling handpiece, the ChillTip, helps protect the skin by conductive cooling during the laser energy delivery.
Q: Why should I use the Light Sheer Duet Laser System rather than the methods I’ve been using for years?
A: High Speed LightSheer® Duet™ offers you exciting treatment speed and amazing comfort combined with the safety and results you desire and deserve.
The NEW High Speed LightSheer treatment option for hair removal is great news for both men and women, since backs and legs can now be treated comfortably in about 15-20 minutes, with no need for topical anesthetics or messy treatment gel.
Q: Does the Light Sheer work on tanned or different skin colors?
A: The Light Sheer diode laser system safely and effectively treats all skin types (Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-VI) as well as tanned skin. For darker skin types and people with tans, appropriate fluences are generally lower and appropriate pulse widths are generally longer to prevent damage to the epidermis. Using the appropriate treatment parameters, however, people with all skin types can benefit from laser hair removal with the Light Sheer.
Q: Are the Results Permanent?
A: The Light Sheer laser has been cleared by the FDA for hair removal and permanent hair reduction on all skin types and tanned skin. To achieve a satisfactory level of clearance, 4-6 treatments are typically required.
