What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is a procedure where laser light energy is absorbed by the dark color of hair and destroys the hair follicle. It does not affect the surrounding skin so the treatment is safe and comfortable. Most people will require 5 to 6 treatments to achieve permanent hair reduction. Unfortunately lasers will not work on fine hair or blond and grey hair.

What is special about the Lumenis Light Sheer Desire LHR device?

The Light Sheer Desire uses an 805 nm diode laser, considered to be the most effective wavelength for hair removal. It has 2 attachments, one for smaller areas such as the face and one for much larger areas such as the legs, arms and back.

The light sheer Desire can treat large and small areas quickly and with minimal to no discomfort. Legs and backs can be treated in just 10 to 15 minutes making the treatment of these areas very affordable.

Is Laser Hair Removal safe?

Lasers are complex machines and if used incorrectly can cause adverse effects. In skilled hands laser procedures are very safe. All laser treatments at Advanced Specialty Care are evaluated by a physician and are performed under physician supervision. There is no downtime with laser hair removal and people can resume their normal daily activities immediately.
