Human hair grows nearly everywhere on the body except few areas like the bottom of the feet. The hair can be fine and almost invisible, or very coarse and dark. Depending on personal preference and social norms, women and men around the world choose to remove hair from certain body areas as a part of their beauty routine.
Why Do We Have Unwanted Hair?
Androgenetic hormones are the main regulators of hair follicles and control where hair will and will not grow, as well as its thickness and color. Men have much higher androgen levels than women, which makes them have more, as well as thicker, body hair. A person’s hairiness is primarily determined by genetics, but it can also be affected by medications, such as steroids, or by hormonal imbalances.
The most commonly areas for removing unwanted hair, are the legs, bikini line, armpits, back, upper lip and chin.
Traditional methods for hair removal included plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis and chemical depilatories. Some of these methods are painful, some are messy, all of them are time consuming and costly.

Is it right for me?
LightSheer® laser hair removal treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry some risks. LightSheer® is not suitable when you have active infections or inflammations, viral/fungal/bacterial disease, active cold sores, open lacerations or abrasions in the treatment area.
Risks may include: change in skin pigmentation, changes to skin texture, or burns. Be sure to consult with your treatment provider before choosing this treatment.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
The appearance of the treated area following treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on the characteristics of the patient and treatment given. During the treatment, some hairs will shed from the follicle immediately, while the remaining will shed in the following weeks.
Temporary redness and swelling around the hair follicle may appear immediately after the treatment, this shows positive results indicating the follicle’s response to the treatment.
When Will I See Results?
Multiple treatments are required to achieve permanent hair reduction. This is due to the increased effect of the laser on hair in the early growth stage (anagen). Not all the hairs are in the same phase at a given time.
How Does It Work?
High-Speed Vacuum Assisted Technology
High-Speed technology uses suction to gently raise and stretch the skin. In doing so, the laser achieves maximum absorption into hair follicles while covering a large area, shortening treatment time and reducing the sensation of heat.
