Are you ready to stop plucking, shaving, and waxing for good? Lumenis LightSheer laser hair removal is a solution to removing unwanted body hair and facial hair. The treatment is quick and targets the hair follicle to eliminate hair growth. We can safely treat a variety of skin tones and types without pain or discomfort. If you want to learn more about LightSheer laser therapy, contact Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, FL and speak to our experts.
LightSheer is an FDA-approved laser therapy treatment developed by Lumenis that removes hair growth by up to 95% in 10 to 14 sessions. The laser works on all skin types and can eliminate hair from most of the body. Patients will no longer need to wax, pluck, and shave, which can save time and money. LightSheer laser therapy treatment is conducted in our Orlando office and requires no recovery.
LightSheer is a laser diode treatment by Lumenis that removes hair from the body. The laser targets the hair follicle’s greater pigment, where it is absorbed and eliminates hair growth. The laser uses a high-speed vacuum, which eliminates the need to prep the treatment area making the treatment more efficient. You will likely need more than one treatment to reach your desired results, but after two treatments you should see a noticeable difference.
Treatment time can vary but is faster than many other laser treatments and the treatment is easy and painless. A nurse or dermatologist will perform the treatment for you using the handheld laser device. The treatment eliminates the need for shaving, plucking, and waxing hair on the body and face.
Electrolysis treats one hair follicle at a time with a microneedle that pulses electrical or radiofrequency energy through the follicle. The treatment can be uncomfortable and takes much longer to eliminate hair growth than laser therapy from LightSheer.
The lip area, beard line, outer ear, and chin can be treated to remove unwanted facial hair. LightSheer can also remove hair from the chest, back, arms, underarms, legs, bikini area for women, and almost every other part of the body.
LightSheer can easily treat thick hairs and dark black or brown hairs that are most noticeable, but it is not suited for eliminating light-colored hairs like white, blonde, or red hairs. This is due to the low levels of pigment in the follicle for light hair colors.
A single session can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour depending on the size of the treatment area. An area like the legs may take an hour, and a small area like the upper lip can take a few minutes to complete. The entire treatment usually consists of 10 to 14 sessions to see 90% to 95% hair reduction. Each session will require 6 to 12 weeks of rest before you come back for your next session.
For the maximum hair elimination, multiple sessions ensure that hairs in each phase can be targeted. A dormant hair follicle has no pigment to absorb the laser, so LightSheer can only target growing hairs. Multiple treatments ensure treatment is even and that hair follicles that are dormant will eventually be treated effectively.
Patients will be required to make a few changes to their daily routine leading up to their treatment session. Sun tanning should be avoided before treatment and waxing or electrolysis treatment should be discontinued at least three weeks before your session.
When your treatment is concluded, the hair is permanently removed. The follicles that have been treated will no longer participate in hair growth.
After your treatment with LightSheer, you can return to work or your normal routine immediately. Patients should avoid shaving or plucking remaining hairs for three to four days and avoid tanning or prolonged sun exposure. Patients should also discontinue waxing and electrolysis treatments until the laser treatment is concluded.
LightSheer treatment is not painful and will not cause discomfort. Lumenis LightSheer uses ChillTip technology to cool the skin while applying the laser so there is no risk of burning or damage to the skin.
The cost of your treatment depends on the size of the area being treated and can vary by regional location. The cost is offset by the time and money saved on shaving and waxing over a lifetime making for a good investment.
LightSheer is a hair removal solution for men and women of all ages and skin tones. Patients should avoid tanning before treatment sessions, but the laser works well on those with naturally dark skin tones. LightSheer works best for those with thick and thin hair, but the hair requires a darker color for the best results. White, blonde, and red hair colors do not have enough pigment in the follicle to be treated with LightSheer laser.

Are you starting to see lines on your forehead or between your brows? Maybe you are thinking about Botox but wondering if there are alternatives. XEOMIN is an alternative to Botox that is purer and leaves out the fillers. It is effective for those patients looking to prevent wrinkles or those that have built a tolerance to Botox. At Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, FL we have all of your dermatological treatments and skincare solutions.
XEOMIN is an FDA-approved treatment using botulinum toxin as a neuromodulator to address lines and wrinkles caused by muscle movement. The solution is injected much like Botox but has several benefits that give it an edge over Botox. The treatment does not smooth out lines and wrinkles; instead, it prevents them by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles.
Fillers found in Botox are not present in this treatment, and it is a more pure form of the botulinum toxin. The treatment cannot be used to fill in wrinkles or indentations, but patients will see a softening of lines. The treatment is commonly used to address wrinkles on the forehead and mouth and has been a Botox alternative on the market since 2011.
There are several reasons why a patient might consider alternatives to Botox. After repeated uses, Botox may lose its effectiveness and a new injectable must take its place. XEOMIN leaves out the proteins and fillers used in Botox, so it can be more effective for those patients with resistance to Botox. Fine lines are softened by the treatment, and it is excellent for preventing wrinkles without adding fillers to the skin.
Both solutions have a similar function and use botulinum toxin, requiring the same amount of solution for similar results. They both require retouches occasionally. Botox only takes around 72 hours to see results, but XEOMIN can take four days. The body will not form a resistance to the more pure form of botulinum toxin found in this treatment.
Whether you have been using Botox for a while or it is your first time receiving an injectable, the appointment starts with a consultation. We will identify your needs and discuss treatments and expected outcomes. If it is determined that XEOMIN will benefit your skin, we can begin the treatment. The treatment is typically 20 units divided into five injections and takes between 5 and 15 minutes. The effects will become visible in about four or five days.
The treatment typically has no downtime, and patients can get back to work or their daily life. Some redness and swelling may occur. Patients should avoid irritating the treated area by scratching or heating. Patients will typically return for another session within the year.
Those patients looking to prevent wrinkles and soften fine lines are ideal candidates for treatment. Patients of various ages and genders can enjoy more youthful-looking skin with treatment. Patients should be at least 18, and many patients will consider treatment for signs of aging in their 30s. No surgery is required, and sessions are quick and easily fit into your busy day.
Treatment can be used as an alternative to surgery and injections with fillers like Botox. It is effective for reducing the signs of aging. The treatment is typically applied to the following areas to reduce the muscle movement that causes wrinkles:
The treatment helps prevent wrinkles and softens lines. We can complete a treatment session quickly and you will see results within a week. The results last for months before you need to come back for a retouch. Many people enjoy treatments to reduce signs of aging or as an alternative to Botox.
A single treatment session can take 15 minutes and will yield results within a week. The treatment results can last between three and six months. The longevity of the effects is similar to that of other treatments like Botox. After three months, a patient may consider coming back for another session to touch up areas as needed. The treatment longevity varies and depends on your lifestyle and skin health. Some patients need fewer treatments than others.
The treatment is FDA approved and safe for most patients to reduce signs of aging. The treatment is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing and is not recommended for use by minors. If you have recently undergone antibiotics or other injections like Botox there may be a waiting period before you can be treated. The treatment can be a safe alternative to invasive surgical procedures and dermal fillers.
Side effects are mild, and there can be slight redness or swelling in some patients. There is no healing or downtime after treatment. The treatment should not affect your skincare routines or daily life. The treatment risk is similar to Botox, but it can be a good alternative to those who are building a tolerance to Botox.
If you are considering a safe and quick alternative to Botox, XEOMIN is a potent treatment to relax the muscles that cause folds and wrinkles. Patients will have youthful and smooth skin long after treatment with only a 15-minute session. Visit Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, FL for a consultation today.
