We are excited to introduce the Lumenis Lightsheer laser hair removal to our practice. Laser hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair by exposing the hair follicle to pulses of laser light, thereby destroying the follicle. With advances in technology this is a relatively painless process. For the very sensitive individual a numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment, however this is usually not needed. Each treatment will destroy approximately 20% of the hair in the growth cycle. Therefore, five treatments are usually what is recommended. The treatments are spaced 6-8 weeks apart allowing the hair follicles in the resting phase to enter the growth phase.
Virtually any body area can be treated. By using high powers of short and very long pulse we can now safely treat all skin types and the broadest range of hair colors.
The Lumeins Lightsheer is regarded as the best laser hair removal device available. It is the laser that is regarded as the gold standard and to which other lasers are compared. It is the most studied laser. Not only is it the most successful at removing unwanted hair but its speed allows large areas of the body, like backs, arms and legs, to be treated quickly and painlessly.
