Toledo Lumenis LightSheer Laser Hair Removal – Supervised and Directed by Board Certified Plastic Surgeons

Lumenis LightSheer laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted by the LightSheer diode laser is well absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, long enough to heat up the hair and significantly impede the follicle’s ability to re-grow. This process also treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously; therefore, LightSheer is appropriate for treating even the largest areas of the body both quickly and effectively.

Toledo Laser Hair Removal Procedure Information

The length of a laser treatment may last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. It is important to understand that the hairs in an active growth phase are most affected by the laser. Since all hairs are not in this phase at the same time, more than one treatment will be necessary to achieve the best results.

The laser treatment itself may cause some discomfort. Most patients tolerate laser hair removal well, but because some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, topical anesthesia can be an option.

The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the procedure and skin type. Side effects, if any, are minor and may include redness and swelling around the hair follicle. These “side effects” are, in fact, a desired clinical result and indicate that the follicle has responded to the treatment. Most people return to normal activity right away. We will be happy to tell you more about your treatment, possible side effects and what results you can expect during your consultation.
