How does LightSheer laser hair removal work? –The laser beam passes through the skin and is absorbed in the hair follicle residing underneath the skin’s surface. The laser energy can destroy the follicle with the heat that it generates. Destroyed hairs are then either dissolved within the skin or rejected by the body within two to three weeks.
How many laser hair removal procedures will be needed? – Laser hair removal procedures impair the growth of hair follicles when they are in the growth cycle at the time of the procedure. There are three phases in a person’s hair growth cycle: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. This is why you need more than one procedure. Most people require approximately four to six procedures to have desired results. This is standard practice with most type of laser hair removal system.
Does skin type or tanned skin make a difference for laser hair removal? – With Lightsheer all body parts and any skin type, including tanned skin, can be treated. Lightsheer’s extended 100ms and 400ms pulse widths makes it a procedure that can achieve results while maintaining the normal appearance of the skin. However, for individuals with very light hair, red hair, or gray hair the laser is not always as effective. To improve the laser’s ability to target the hair follicle, a product called Meladine can be applied to enhance the hair pigment.
Is the laser hair removal procedure painful? – Our laser utilizes a special patented cooling system that lowers the temperature of the skin at the procedure site before, during, and after laser exposure. No local anesthesia or pain medication is required.
What should I do before the laser hair removal procedure begins? Prior to laser hair removal avoid indoor or outdoor tanning and using self tanning products for approximately four weeks. You must thoroughly shave your hair preferably one day prior to the procedure. Do not wax, tweeze dye hair or have electrolysis two weeks prior to the procedure. Avoid skin care products with irritants such as Glycolic Acid or Retin-A in the procedure area for about a week.
What should I expect following the laser hair removal procedure? Once the laser hair removal procedure is complete you are free to return to your normal activities immediately. Some clients may experience a slight reddening around the hair follicles immediately following the procedure. This reaction typically disappears within a few hours. The use of sun screen at or above 25 SPF is recommended on all skin areas exposed to the sun for the next four weeks following the laser procedure. It is also recommended that the client avoid heavy sun exposure for the next four weeks. Application of ice or aloe gel after the procedure may generally help facilitate healing. Within two to three weeks after the laser hair removal procedure the body will be exfoliating the dead hairs.
Are there any side effects with laser hair removal? – Most clients experience a mild stinging or burning sensation when the laser pulse is delivered and some may experience a slight reddening of the skin or local swelling. This typically disappears within a short period of time from anywhere between a couple of hours to a couple of days.
Are the results of laser hair removal permanent? – The FDA has cleared the Lightsheer laser for permanent hair reduction. Since lasers have only been used for hair removal for several years, it is difficult to predict the effects of the procedure and how long it will last.
Is Lightsheer widely recognized? – Lightsheer is one of the preferred lasers for hair reduction and has won the Editor’s Choice Award for Most Diverse Hair Removal for All Skin Types. Lightsheer has been cleared by the FDA for permanent hair reduction.
