For many of us, hair removal is a part of everyday life. Whether you choose shaving or waxing, electrolysis or hair removal cream, the options can be painful, messy and ineffective, as well as time consuming. LightSheer® laser hair removal is different. It uses clinically proven diode laser technology to permanently remove unwanted hair, comfortably and effectively.
- Long-lasting results
- Comfortable treatments
- Short treatment times
What makes it special?
Lumenis has been pioneering laser hair removal for 50 years, so you know you’re getting expert treatment. Only LightSheer® features two unique technologies:
- High Speed Vacuum Assisted technology for large treatment areas, requiring no prep and no gel
- ChillTip™ technology, a cooled sapphire tip for smaller more delicate areas
Is it right for me?
LightSheer® is generally suitable for all skin tones and for all areas and types of hair. However, laser hair removal may not be right for everyone and does carry some risks.
LightSheer® isn’t suitable if you have an active infection or inflammation; viral, fungal or bacterial disease; active cold sore; or open wound or abrasion in the area you want to treat. Risks may include changes to skin pigmentation and texture, or burns.
What should I expect and when will I see results?
Lasers are more effective when hair is at an early growth stage. Because not all hairs will be at the same stage of growth at the same time, you’ll need multiple treatments to permanently remove the unwanted hair.
How the area will look afterwards varies from person to person, depending on skin and hair type. You may have some redness and swelling around hair follicles straight after, but don’t be alarmed – it’s only a response to the treatment. In the following weeks some hairs will shed from the treated area. You will notice less hair growth as you progress through the course of your treatments.
How does LightSheer Technology work?
LightSheer® uses a state-of-the-art diode laser handpiece with a wavelength of either 805nm or 1060nm. The handpiece uses gentle suction to lift and stretch the skin. This allows the laser to be absorbed into the hair follicles more easily when treating a large area, so the treatment time is quicker. It also helps to reduce the sensation of heat.
The unique sapphire cooling system continuously cools and numbs the skin to make the sensation more comfortable. At the same time the handpiece compresses the skin so that the laser’s energy is better absorbed by the hair follicle.
