Laser Hair Removal With Lumenis LightSheer
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.
What Should I Expect From LightSheer?
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.
How Is LightSheer Different From Electrolysis?
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.
Can Hair Be Removed From Every Part of the Body?
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.
Can Thick Hairs Be Treated?
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.
How Long Does a Session Take?
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.
Why Does It Take More Than One 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.
What Should I Do Leading Up to My Session?
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.
Is Hair Removal Permanent?
When your treatment is concluded, the hair is permanently removed. The follicles that have been treated will no longer participate in hair growth.
Is There Downtime or Recovery After Hair Removal?
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.
Is the Treatment Painful?
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.
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
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.
Is LightSheer Right for Me?
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.
