LightSheer Laser Skin Removal
The new LightSheer DUET by Lumenis is the Gold Standard in laser hair removal. Let’s face it, excess body hair can be unsightly and embarrassing. Shaving, plucking, waxing and depilatory creams provide temporary fixes that are inconvenient, irritating, messy and only temporary. Electrolysis is time consuming, sometimes painful, and is useful only in removing hair from small areas. Excess and unwanted hair is a common problem. Women frequently experience this condition on the face, especially the upper lip or eyebrow area, in the bikini area, under the arms or on the legs. Men often wish to rid themselves of hair on their back or chest.
Advanced technology lasers and light sources are rapidly changing hair removal treatment, providing gentle, non-invasive and long-lasting solutions to unwanted hair. Among laser and light-based devices, the LightSheer™ Diode Laser System and the IPL™ provide safe, superior results and patient satisfaction. The laser uses targeted flashes of light to block the regrowth potential of the hair follicle. These treatments do not damage surrounding tissue, but instead target numerous hair follicles simultaneously, allowing for the treatment of large areas quickly and effectively. The LightSheer Diode Laser System is one of the most efficient options available for light-based treatment of unwanted hair. Numerous published studies in professional medical journals attest to the LightSheer system’s safety and long-term effectiveness. Unlike other hair removal tools, the LightSheer system incorporates the ChillTip™ technology.
In addition, the LightSheer system technology has proven effective on a wide range of hair colors, from blonde through auburn to brown and dark black hair. Most important, LightSheer systems successfully remove hair from all skin types – from porcelain white through olive to dark brown complexions, including tanned skin. Hair can be treated on any part of the body, no matter how deep the follicles may reside. Treatment of sensitive areas like the lips, ears, nose, underarm and bikini line can usually be tolerated easily.
Another key advantage is the LightSheer system’s large treatment area, enabling the device to cover more area in substantially less time. In fact, approximately 100 – 200 hairs can be treated with each zap of the laser, so that large swaths of hair on the legs, back and chest can be treated quickly in a single session. At the same time, LightSheer can be very precisely focused, so that hair is eliminated from delicate places.
The number of treatments required depends on several factors related to specific skin types and color, thickness and density of hair. Dr. Ahdoot at the Cosmetic Laser Center of Irvine customizes treatment programs to each individual’s needs, and gives each patient an estimate of how many sessions will likely be needed in order to meet their expectations.
