Laser hair removal has become an ever-increasing demand that has led to the development of new and upgraded hair removal technology. The current gold standard in laser hair removal is the use of diode lasers, specifically the LightSheer Diode Laser System with patented ChillTip protection.
How does it work?
For the scientific portion, here you go!
The laser hair reduction process combines selective absorption of light energy by the melanin in hair follicles with suitable fluences (laser energy that is expressed in joules per square centimeter or J/cm²) and pulse durations. In order to achieve permanent hair reduction, sufficient light energy must be absorbed by the hair follicle. The melanin in the hair follicle absorbs 3-4 times more energy with the wavelength used in the LightSheer than in various previous lasers. This increased absorption means the LightSheer laser can be used at significantly lower fluences to achieve hair reduction.
Advantages of the LightSheer System
The LightSheer Diode Laser System was designed from the ground up for laser hair removal meaning it has the wavelength, fluence, pulse width and active epidermal cooling system (the ChillTip) suited for laser hair removal. The ChillTip is especially important since it protects the skin by conductive cooling during the laser energy delivery.
Why is the LightSheer Diode Laser System a better choice for laser hair removal?
Not only is it designed for comfort during treatment, but the other bonus points are minimal risk of infection, enhanced speed and accuracy. In addition, the unique cooling handpiece minimizes the risk of skin irritation that other methods may create. Since its non-invasive (no needles penetrate the skin), the risk of introducing bacteria into the skin is greatly reduced. Because the system is fast, it allows for larger areas to be treated, considerably increasing the efficiency of the hair removal process. Finally, the system is a precise instrument that can be adjusted to damage only the hair follicle while minimally affecting the surrounding skin.
Another popular question…Is it permanent?
The LightSheer laser has been cleared by the FDA for hair removal and permanent hair reduction on all skin types including, tanned skin, on virtually and body area. To achieve satisfactory results, 6 treatments are typically required.
