LightSheer® Laser Hair Removal
For many of us, hair removal is a part of everyday life. Whether you choose shaving or waxing, electrolysis or hair removal cream, the options can be painful, messy, and ineffective, as well ad time consuming.
LightSheer® laser hair removal is different. It uses clinically proven diode laser technology1,2 to permanently3 remove unwanted hair, comfortably and effectively.
- Long-lasting results.
- Comfortable treatments
- Short treatment times.
What makes it special?
Lumenis has been pioneering laser hair removal for 50 years, so you know you’re getting expert treatment. Only LightSheer® features two unique technologies:
- High Speed Vacuum Assisted technology for large treatment area, requiring no prep and no gel.
- ChillTip™ technology, a cooled sapphire tip for smaller more delicate areas.
Is it right for me?
LightSheer® is generally suitable for all skin tones and for all areas and types of hair. However, laser hair removal may not be right for everyone, and does carry some risks.
LightSheer® isn’t suitable if you have an active infection or inflammation; viral, fungal or bacterial disease; active cold core; or open wound or abrasion in the area you want to treat. Risks may include changes to skin pigmentation and texture, or burns. Always speak to your treatment provider, who’ll be able to help you decide whether it’s right for you.
Results you can see for yourself…
What should I expect?
When will I see results?
Lasers are more effective when hair is at an early growth stage. Because not all hairs will be at the same stage of growth at the same time, you’ll need multiple treatments to permanently remove unwanted hair.
What can I expect after treatment?
How the area will look afterwards varies from person to person, depending on skin and hair type. You may have some redness and swelling around the hair follicles straight after, but don’t be alarmed — it’s only a response to the treatment. In the following weeks, some hairs will shed from the treated area. You will notice less hair growth as you progress through the course of your treatments.
Your treatment provider will give you some guidance for looking after your skin and protecting it from the sun after it’s been treated.
