Why LightSheer® Laser Hair Removal?

In the past methods for hair removal included plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis and chemical depilatories. Some are painful, some are messy, all of them are time consuming and are associated with high cost.

With ChillTip™, the skin is cooled before and during the laser hair removal treatment. It is then compressed and the laser beam is directed to the skin. With HIT™, the vacuum gently draws skin into the hand piece, stretching it thin and pulling the target closer to the energy source.

FAQ

The number of LightSheer Laser Hair Removal treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hormones, hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle, etc. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. LightSheer by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.

Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur.

LightSheer® laser system
The LightSheer® uses a state-of-the-art 805nm diode laser, which ensures safety for all skin types. Repeated laser pulses target existing hair, creating a direction of energy into the hair follicles that prevent future growth. The LightSheer® allows your physician to truly customize treatment for your hair type, skin type and lifestyle by utilizing 2 different handpieces and technologies.

HIT™ technology
The High-Speed Integrated Technology (HIT™) incorporates suction to elevate and stretch the skin. In doing so, the laser achieves maximum absorption into hair follicles and fast coverage of large areas, which minimize the sensation of heat.

ChillTip™ technology
The ChillTip™ technology uses a proprietary cooling system to momentarily numb the skin to minimize Pain, while compressing the handpiece to the skin to rotate the follicle and enable better results.

Multiple treatments are required to achieve permanent hair reduction. This is due to the increased effect of the laser on hair in the early growth stage (anagen). Not all the hairs are in the same phase at a given time.
