LightSheer™ Diode Laser Hair Removal
The LightSheer™ Diode Laser Hair Removal reduces unwanted hair faster, less painfully, and more reliably than non-laser methods. It’s great for the face, bikini area, legs, and more.
LightSheer™ works when pigment in hair follicles absorbs the light emitted by the system. The laser vaporizes hair pigment, eliminating or significantly slowing hair’s growth.
Non-Laser Hair Removal Methods
The usual remedies for removing unwanted hair, plucking, shaving, waxing or chemical methods, just don’t offer long-term solutions.
Electrolysis is a popular and effective treatment for long-term hair removal, but it can be painful and can take months of regular visits to be effective.
Treatment Time and Recovery
Depending on the treated area, a laser hair removal session lasts anywhere from a few minutes to 60 minutes. Lasers treat hair follicles in active growth, so more than one treatment may be required.
Most patients tolerate LightSheer™ laser hair removal well. However, because some areas of the body are more sensitive, topical anesthesia is available. You may return to normal activity right away, but redness and swelling occur in some patients.
LightSheer™ DUET Laser
The new LightSheer DUET by Lumenis is the Gold Standard in laser hair removal.
The DUET system offers several innovative improvements over previous laser hair removal systems. Vacuum assisted technology combined with a dramatic increase in the laser spot size enables a greater depth of penetration, and improved absorption of energy at the hair follicle. These improvements mean the treatment times are reduced by 75% in many cases, for instance we can treat backs and legs comfortably, without anesthetics and gels.
The number of treatments required depends on several factors including hair and skin type. Laser hair removal treats hair in an active growth phase. Since all hairs are not in this phase at the same time, 4 or more treatments may be necessary for the best results.
The LightSheer DUET system is a quick and pain free way to permanently remove unwanted hair from your legs, back, face, bikini, and other areas of your body where unwanted hair is a problem.
The Adams Center is pleased to be the first provider of LightSheer DUET in the greater Boston area.
