LASER HAIR REMOVAL FOR WOMEN
Women have been removing hair from various parts of their body for thousands of years as far back as the ancient Egyptians. In modern times, as methods and technologies have evolved, it has only become more common.
LightSheer is already the choice of many women for full body laser hair removal, with the most popular being upper lip, chin, bikini area, underarms, and legs. With the permanent hair reduction results they can achieve with LightSheer, women enjoy more freedom and confidence in their day-to-day lives.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL FOR MEN
It used to be that hair removal was strictly a female thing. Not so anymore. More and more are opting for the same grooming rights as women and looking for permanent hair removal for men.
Some men don’t necessarily want it all removed, just thinned out. With LightSheer men usually remove hair from the back, chest, stomach, shoulders, and genital area.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL FOR TEENAGERS
Although those under age 18 require the presence of a parent on the first consultation, LightSheer is an ideal treatment option for teenagers, even young teens. It can provide good results in a relatively short period of time, fitting in with teenagers’ lifestyles. LightSheer laser hair removal has overturned the teen hair-removal equation.
The sooner that hair follicles are damaged by a beam of concentrated light, the more time teens can regain for activities that are more interesting and fun than shaving and waxing. The risks and side effects of laser hair removal are the same for teenagers as for adults. And like adults, when the teenager adheres to a good aftercare regimen, they are reduced even further.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL FOR DARK SKIN
Laser hair removal used to be considered ineffective or unsafe for people with ethnically dark skin (Fitzpatrick skin types IV-VI) or sun-tanned skin.
That has now changed. With the evolution of technologies and years of additional studies, laser hair removal is now generally considered to be safe and effective for all skin types. Now, longer wavelengths, reduced fluences, longer pulses and suitable methods of cooling together minimize risks of side effects and maximize efficacy. The longer wavelength of 1060 nm, delivered by diode laser, is considered the safest for treating people of color, due to their darker skin. In skin of color, a hair removal laser with longer wavelength can reduce side-effects such as abnormal formation of pigment in the skin (dyspigmentation) and ingrown hairs or “razor bumps” (pseudofolliculitis barbae) and thus improve patient satisfaction.
LIGHTSHEER FOR INGROWN HAIR
Ingrown hairs can be a result of shaving (pseudofolliculitis barbae) or razor bumps (pseudofolliculitis barbae) which can cause painful or itchy bumps in the skin which are particularly common among people with curly hair. The condition is sometimes known as razor bumps because after shaving some of the hairs curl back into the skin and causes raised, pus-filled blisters (postules) or small solid pimple-like bumps (papules).
It is estimated that ingrown hairs may affect almost 85% of men of African descent, and many women too.
Due to its excellent safety profile for all skin types, LightSheer can provide a uniquely safe and effective solution for this very common medical problem. By damaging the hair follicle, the laser energy destroys the follicle’s ability to produce hair. Therefore, there will be no ingrown hair, and thus none of the irritation, pain or infection that ingrown hairs commonly lead to. Because facial hair growth is driven by natural hormones in the body, maintenance treatments once or twice a year may be required to maintain the hair reduction effects of the original course of treatment.
