LASER HAIR REMOVAL – HOW IT WORKS

Beverly Hills LightSheer laser hair removal With an increase spot size of 22 mm x 35 mm, combined with innovative vacuum assist technology, larger areas such as backs and legs can be treated comfortably in about 15 to 20 min. without any topical anesthetics and treatment gels! What’s innovative about this laser is that by employing the simultaneous vacuum technology to the skin, your body does not perceive the pulse of the laser while it is being applied since it is being distracted by the suction sensation of the vacuum itself. This latter sensation overrides any discomfort that occurs during the actual laser pulse.

This treatment option for hair removal is great news for both men and women and can target many different areas on the body. Women and men have subjected themselves to painful, expensive methods of hair removal. Today, laser hair removal is a more viable alternative to shaving, waxing and plucking than ever before. In fact, nearly 1.3 million Americans underwent laser hair removal in 2009 due to its proven safety and effectiveness.

SAFE & FAST TREATMENT

Beverly Hills LightSheer laser hair removal The high-speed LightDheer Duet reduces treatment times by up to 75% and it’s increased efficacy can be attributed to its 800 non-metered diode laser which is been optimized by luminous for permanent hair reduction across the widest patient population of all skin types and colors. This offers increased margin of safety in terms of minimizing skin discoloration and burns. During laser hair removal, a large beam of highly concentrated light is generated and focused onto the skin. The light emitted is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles (melanin). Throughout the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the halr to absorb the light and heat up. This significantly reduces the hair’s ability to regrow, and results in permanent hair reduction over time.

MULTI-PHASE TREATMENT PROCESS

Because hair grows in phases, a series of treatments will be needed to remove the hair that subsequently enters the growth phase. Treatments are generally spaced 6-8 weeks apart to compensate for this.

MINIMAL DISCOMFORT

Following laser hair removal the treated area may appear slightly red, but this is usually minimal and gone within a few hours. If you have tanned skin or have been exposed to a lot of sunlight, you may be asked to wait until the tan has subsided to begin treatment. Additionally, the treated area must be shaved close to the skin immediately prior to treatment – this can be done at home and we will assist in shaving the hard-to-reach areas in the office. Three weeks prior to treatment, patients are told not to use hair removal products such as gels and waxes.
