Belladerm’s LightSheer™ Laser Hair Removal is the Gold Standard laser system for providing permanent hair reduction. Laser hair removal intrigues many but remains a bit of a mystery so we want to answer some common questions people ask:
Q: What does treatment feel like?
A: LightSheer’s actively cooled handpiece makes treatments more comfortable than other lasers on the moment today. This is an important difference especially for a woman’s sensitive skin. Local anesthesia or pain medication is not required, but some patients prefer a topical anesthetic.
Q: Is this treatment safe?
A: Laser hair removal has become a safe and reliable hair removal treatment. The LightSheer Diode Laser is one of the few lasers approved by the FDA for permanent hair reduction on all skin types.
Q: How does it work?
A: As you may already know, a laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. Light emitted by the LightSheer Diode Laser is absorbed only by the pigment located within the hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling several follicles at a time. This either eliminates or significantly reduces the hair’s ability to grow back.
Q: How many treatments do I need?
A: The number of treatments required for optimal, long-term benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated, your hair’s density and growth cycle. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in the way your hair responds to the treatment.
Q: Are there side effects?
A: Short-term side effects may include slight reddening of the skin or local swelling which typically lasts less than an hour. In very rare instances, there may be some blistering.
Q: How does this compare with other hair removal methods?
A: Shaving, waxing, plucking, or depilatory creams are all temporary methods, which must be repeated on a regular basis to keep unwanted hair away. Hair removal with LightSheer advanced laser technology offers longer lasting results.
