Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic treatment that has become a go-to option for individuals who are tired of constantly waxing or shaving unwanted hair. This treatment is both effective and long-lasting, making it a great option for those who want to simplify their daily routine.
How Does it Work?
During laser hair removal, a specialized device targets a few hairs at a time and extracts them from the root. This process is why it is a good idea to avoid waxing, tweezing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment, as the hair needs to be present in order to be targeted. It’s also important to avoid sun exposure before and after treatment, as this can cause damage to the skin.
In most cases, more than one treatment may be necessary for effective permanent hair loss. After treatment, the skin may have a slight sunburn feeling, which can be lessened with cool compresses and moisturizers. If the face was treated, makeup can usually be worn the day after treatment.
Which Areas Can Be Treated?
Exquisite MD SPA uses the LightSheerⓇ laser removal device, which features two cutting-edge removal technologies. The ChillTip™ Sapphire has integrated cooling for smaller and more sensitive treatment areas such as the face, while the High-Speed Vacuum Assisted technology is specially designed for treating larger areas. Between the two of them, the LightSheerⓇ device is capable of treating areas including but not limited to the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini lines, and back.
What is Lumenis Lightsheer?
Lumenis Lightsheer is a cutting-edge laser hair removal technology that uses clinically-proven diode laser technology to deliver a comfortable and effective permanent hair reduction solution. This advanced technology features two different hair removal technologies to cater to different treatment areas. The High-Speed Vacuum Assisted technology is designed for larger treatment areas and requires no preparation or gel, while the ChillTip™ Sapphire integrated cooling is perfect for smaller, more delicate areas. However, like any other treatment, LightSheer laser hair removal carries some risks and is not suitable for everyone. It is crucial to consult with a treatment provider before deciding to undergo this treatment to ensure that it is safe and appropriate for your skin type and any underlying medical conditions.
Does Laser Hair Removal Have Side Effects?
Depending on your skin type, laser hair removal may cause slight blistering for a few days after treatment. Darker skin is more susceptible to this, which is why it is important to wear sunscreen and moisturize to avoid damage.
