UNDERSTANDING HAIR REMOVAL <br />THERE IS A BETTER SOLUTION FOR REMOVING UNWANTED HAIR <br />You may be surprised to learn that virtually your entire body is covered with hair. Because most of this hair is fine and pale, it usually isn’t visible to the naked eye. <br /><br />But when darker, coarser hair appears in places which may make you uncomfortable- like on the face, neck, abdomen, breasts, legs or underarms in women or on the shoulders, chest and back in men, it may be time to consider hair removal with the LightSheer™ diode laser. <br /><br />In the past, the usual remedies for unwanted hair included plucking, shaving, waxing or chemical depilatories. Some are painful, some are messy and all are only temporary. <br /><br />For longterm hair removal, electrolysis is popular and effective, but it is a time consuming procedure, which can be painful and is useful only in removing hair in small areas. During electrolysis, an electric current passes through a needle to destroy each individual hair root. It typically takes months and numerous regular visits to clear even small areas, like the upper lip. <br /><br />Laser hair removal is a more effective solution. The LightSheer™ Diode laser is a state-of-the-art system specially designed to remove unwanted hair faster, with less discomfort and more reliably than other methods. <br /><br />ABOUT LIGHTSHEER™ LASER TREATMENT <br />A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted by the LightSheer™ diode laser is well absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, long enough to heat up the hair and significantly impede the follicle’s ability to re-grow. This process also treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously. Therefore, LightSheer™ is appropriate for treating even the largest areas of the body both quickly and effectively.
