LightSheer® Laser Hair Removal
LightSheer® laser hair removal is different. It uses clinically proven diode laser technologyto permanently remove unwanted hair, comfortably and effectively.
- Long-lasting results
- Comfortable treatments
- Short treatment times
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
- ChillTipTM technology, a cooled sapphire tip for smaller more delicate areas
What makes it special?
LightSheer® is generally suitable for all skin tones and for all areas and types of hair but works better on darker 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. Always speak to your treatment provider, who’ll be able to help you decide whether it’s right for you.
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.
What can I expect after treatment?
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.
Your treatment provider will give you some guidance for looking after your skin and protecting it from the sun after it’s been treated.
How many sessions will I need?
Usually, between 6-10 sessions will be needed.
How does it work?
LightSheer® uses a state-of-the-art diode laser handpiece with a wavelength of either 805nm or 1060nm. Your treatment provider will tailor your treatment depending on the body area, your skin and hair type.
