What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal involves the use of laser technology to get rid of unwanted hair.
LightSheer DUET and LightSheer Desire both utilize High Speed Integrated Technology (HIT) to remove hair. This involves the use of vacuum assisted treatment to improve efficiency.
The LightSheer DUET is a 800 nm laser. The LightSheer DESIRE is a 805nm diode laser, and is equipped with 3 handpieces. The large spot size (22x35mm), allows the lasers to penetrate deeply, and ensures more efficient absorption of energy by the targeted hair follicle. It also speeds up treatment time.
How does it work?
With the LightSheer HIT technology, a vacuum effect pulls the skin into the handpiece, which means that the hair follicle is closer to the energy source. The energy is absorbed by the melanin at the base of the follicle, and the resulting heat damages the hair follicle, and prevents re-growth. The ChillTip technology cools the skin during treatment, in order to enhance comfort.
How many treatments do you need?
It typically takes multiple treatments to eliminate unwanted hair, lasers only work on hair when it is in the anagen or growth phase. Hair type and hair color also influences the number of treatments needed.
What areas can be treated
The areas commonly treated include the bikini area, back (for men), underarms, and legs.
