Unwanted Hair

Popular in men and women, long term hair reduction is now fairly common across many age groups. From chests and backs, to facial hair and intimate little private places, we can help.

Resulting in long-term hair reduction (rather than ‘permanent’ hair removal, which is virtually impossible) to guarantee laser hair removal only targets actively growing hair (around 20-30% of visible hairs). That’s why we always suggest multiple treatments (usually between 5 and 10) for the very best results.

How does it work?

The laser uses high-energy light to target skin structures such as hair follicles, in their growing (anagen) phase. The laser energy gets converted into heat and destroys the hair follicle target.

Is treatment permanent?

On average, each Laser treatment will be associated with some permanent hair loss. So in most cases hair reduction can only be achieved after several (5–10)
treatment sessions. The number of treatments will depend on each patient’s individual response to laser therapy, and the amount of hair to be removed and the body site. Remember that the goal may not be total hair removal. Many patients are happy with a reasonable degree of hair reduction. Also remember that the hair that remains is often lighter in colour and thinner than the original hair. As with other treatments for unwanted hair, there is no guarantee that laser hair removal treatment will be permanent.

Can all skin colours be treated?

The LightSheer Duet works best for skin types 1 to 4. Skin types 5 and 6 are better suited to the Nd:YAG laser hair removal, to reduce the risk of burning which can lead to darkening of the skin.
