What should I expect?
When will I see 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.
What can I expect after treatment?
The appearance of the treated area following treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on the characteristics of the patient and treatment given.
During the treatment, some hairs will shed from the follicle immediately, while the remaining will shed in the following weeks. Transient redness and swelling around the hair follicle may appear immediately after the treatment, but are in fact, positive results indicating the follicle’s response to the treatment.
Following the treatment, you will be provided with guidelines, namely in terms of sun exposure.
How does it work?
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 laser technician to truly customize treatment for your hair type, skin type and lifestyle by utilizing 2 different hand-pieces and technologies.
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.
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.
