Some people find their unwanted hair so embarrassing and inconvenient that it compromises their confidence and happiness. Many men and women find they have to shave on a daily basis in order to maintain a groomed look. Laser hair removal is the most state-of-the-art and high-tech method in removing unwanted hair for longer and even indefinite periods of time. It is the only proven method available for easily removing hair from all different parts of the body permanently. Laser hair removal is effective, precise, cost efficient, and with no down time. Now you can stop all the old methods of hair removal (shaving, tweezing, waxing, depilatory creams) that provide temporary fixes. No more worrying about the appearance of cuts, nicks, razor bumps, and ingrown hairs.
The LightSheer® Duet™ Laser is a state-of-the-art system specifically designed to remove unwanted facial or body hair for both men and women safely, quickly & comfortably. The Light Sheer Duet™ is a diode laser with two devices. (1) The advanced version of the original LightSheer for smaller areas. (2) The high speed head covers a larger treatment area, and its innovative vacuum assisted technology reduces the treatment time up to 75% while significantly improving comfort level.
We also use a long-pulse Nd-Yag laser as well as Diode laser for hair removal to achieve the best possible results. The Nd-Yag laser is one of the safest type of lasers available that can remove hair on dark skin (types V-VI). The Nd-Yag laser has a longer wavelength which allows the energy to bypass the skin level and penetrate deeper down to the hair follicles.
HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?
The laser produces a beam of concentrated light. The light emitted is absorbed by the pigment or melanin located in hair follicles. The laser heats up the hair and significantly impedes the follicles ability to re-grow. An important part of the procedure is the cooling of the skin. It protects and cools the upper layer of the skin before, during, and after each laser pulse while directing the laser energy to the hair root. The combination of this cooling method and other important key parameters allows for safe and effective treatment for all skin types.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR LASER TREATMENT?
The area treated should be shaved the day of the treatment or the day before in order to minimize any hair on the outside of the skin. Hair on the outside can burn and will reduce the laser energy delivered to the hair follicle where it has its beneficial effect. Waxing, tweezing, sugaring, or depilatory creams should also be avoided at least 2-4 weeks before treatment as this removes the hair inside the follicle. Without a hair inside the follicle, laser hair removal would not have any effect. It is very important to protect the treated area from sun exposure. The area has to be in natural skin tone for a safe & effective treatment.
The length of a laser hair removal treatment may last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. It is important to know that the hair in active growth (Anagen phase) respond the best to the laser. Since all hairs are not in this phase at the same time, several treatments will be necessary to achieve the best results. Treatments are done at intervals of 4-10 weeks, depending on the area of the body being treated.
