The length of a laser treatment may last from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area. It is ideal to know that the hairs in an active growth phase ( referred to as anagen) are most affected by the laser. As all hairs are not in this phase at the same time, more than one treatment will be necessary to attain the highest results.
Laser hair removal is a process that locates and treats the darker hair, which is usually the most difficult to get rid of as it is coarse and thick. For lighter hair removal, see our electrolysis services.
The treatment itself may cause some discomfort. Most patients can actually tolerate the procedure well, but because some people are more sensitive than others, topical anesthesia can be an option.
Laser hair removal is a more effective solution for most people.
The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of the procedure and skin type. Some effects, if any, are minor. They may include redness and swelling in some parts around the hair follicle, in fact, desired clinical results and indicate that the follicle has responded to the treatment. Most people return to normal activity right away. We will be glad to tell you more about our treatment, possible side effects and what results you can expect during your consultation
A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted by the LightSheer™ diode laser is absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, long enough to heat up the hair and signficantly impede the follicle's ability to re-grow. This process also treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously. Therefore, LightSheer™ is appropriate for treating even the largest area of the body both quickly and effectively.
