Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses an intense beam of light to remove unwanted hair in nearly any area, although the most common treatment areas are the chest, back, legs, armpits, upper lip, chin and bikini line.
Lasers that remove hair are continuing to evolve. We are excited to offer the newest LightSheer® DUET™ Laser, which is FDA approved for permanent hair reduction. Hair color and skin type influence the success of laser hair removal. Although people who have darker hair with light skin color are the best candidates, the new technology offered by the LightSheer® DUET™ can successfully treat darker skin types, as well. In addition, the treatment time is remarkably fast and patients report significantly reduced pain with the new laser.
Results of laser hair removal vary greatly from person to person. Laser hair removal provides a prolonged period of hair reduction, but hair regrowth is still possible. For best results, you may need four to six treatments spaced a number of weeks apart. Additional periodic maintenance treatments — perhaps once every six to 12 months — may be needed as well.
