LightsSheerTM Laser Hair Removal Treatments Pittsburgh
Q: How does the LightSheerTM laser work?
A: The diode laser produces a highly concentrated beam of light that is easily absorbed by the pigment contained in the hair follicles. This is why blonde, red, grey and white hair cannot be treatment with laser, as these colors do not contain enough pigment to absorb the laser’s energy.
During treatment, the hair is heated and the follicle is permanently affected, impeding its ability to regrow hair. The process treats numerous, actively growing hair follicles simultaneously.
Q: Is laser hair removal painful?
A: There is some mild discomfort associated with treatment. Some areas, including the upper lip, shins and ankles, and bikini area can be a little more sensitive. However, the chilled gel used during treatment and the chilled treatment tip make the process very tolerable.
Q: How many laser hair removal treatments will I require?
A: No two patients are identical; however, for most treatment areas, approximately 6-8 sessions are necessary. Some treatment areas will require more and some much less. At Cosmetic Laser CentersSM, we space treatment sessions apart by 5-6 weeks.
