Laser Hair Removal FAQs


Q: How does the LightSheer Diode Laser work?

A: The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser light that is emitted by the laser. The laser pulses the light just long enough to cause damage to the hair follicles to prevent regrowth. The ChillTip keeps the patient’s skin comfortable and protected with conductive cooling during the course of the treatment.

Q: Why should I choose the LightSheer system over other hair removal procedures?

A: This laser system is offered by Lumenis, which has a track record for providing cosmetic and medical lasers for over 30 years. This is advanced technology at its finest for laser hair removal offering the best pulse width, fluence, wavelength and cooling system. As well, it’s a small and compact model that virtually any practice can use for state-of-the-art removal of hair. For clients that are looking for the fastest and most reliable laser hair treatments, this should be considered the procedure of choice.

Q: Why should I switch over to a different hair removal system?

A: This is the most comfortable laser treatment offered to clients, and provides increased accuracy, speed and less risk of infection. You will experience less skin irritation since it’s a non-invasive procedure that does not require any needles. As well, larger areas can be covered during treatments and the precision instrument can be adjusted to treat only the hair follicle so that skin irritation is kept to a minimum.

Q: Will the laser work on tanned skin?

A: Yes, the LightSheer laser system can work on tanned skin and any other skin color. For people that have a tan or darker skin, lower fluences and longer pulse widths are used to prevent skin damage. Since the laser is so versatile, all skin type can use this method for safe hair removal.

NOTE: Individual results may vary.
