LightSheer Desire Laser Hair Removal
At SKIN Clinics, we offer the gold standard in laser hair removal. The LightSheer Desire is the leader in laser and energy based technologies. Treatments are effective and comfortable.
What is laser hair removal?
A highly concentrated laser beams into the hair follicle, where the pigment in the follicle absorbs the light. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As the hair and the bulb heat up, this causes damage to the follicle preventing its ability to grow back.
How many treatments will I need?
Laser hair removal requires 5-6 treatments. This is because the hair grows in three stages. Laser targets hair best in the first (anagen) growing stage. Since all hairs are not in the anagen stage at the same time, it requires more than one treatment. The goal of this treatment is improvement not perfection. The amount of hair remaining at the end of your consecutive treatments is relative to the energy you can tolerate, the colour, amount and location of your hair. Average loss at the end of these treatments is 60%-95% less hair. This is the most effective treatment currently available on the market.
What can I expect during/after my treatment?
The LightSheer Desire hair removal system is designed to be as comfortable as possible. Treatments are faster than before, taking 60% less time than older technology. First the area will be cleaned, then the treatment with start. It will feel like a burst of energy in the form of heat on the surface of the skin. After your treatment is complete the appearance of the treated area will vary from patient to patient. Side effects are rare, but if they do occur, are typically minor. They may include redness, swelling around the hair follicle, which are, in fact, positive clinical results and indicate that the follicle has responded to treatment. Most people can return to normal activity right away.
How do I prepare for my treatment?
Before the treatment it is important that you do not tweeze, wax, use a depilatory or undergo electrolysis in the area being treated for 6 weeks prior. Do not tan the treated area for 4-6 weeks. Avoid using self-tanning products for 2 weeks. On larger areas, shave the day of the treatment (legs, backs, bikinis), and for smaller areas, shave the day before (underarms, face). Do not moisturize the area the day of treatment.
