Hair Removal

With the ever-increasing popularity of laser hair removal, the ability to offer unsurpassed results to the greatest range of patients is crucial. Lumenis products have led the way in high patient satisfaction and making effective hair removal a mainstay of leading aesthetic practices.

With both the LightSheer diode lasers and IPL systems for hair removal, physicians are able to:

  • Provide a treatment regimen, which results in long lasting hair removal, permanent hair reduction and high patient satisfaction.
  • Effectively treat virtually all hair colours and hair textures
  • Remove hair from all skin types (Fitzpatrick Skin Types I - VI) and tanned skin.
  • Quickly and efficiently eliminate hair from all parts of the body, regardless of follicle depth or how large or small the area. This includes sensitive areas like the lip, under the arms, and around the bikini line, as well as large areas like a man's back or a pair of woman's legs
  • Perform successful hair removal with minimal patient discomfort, side effects or interruption of routine activities

Expand aesthetic services by offering comprehensive, clinically proven hair removal treatments, individually or in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures.

The key to successful hair removal is destroying the entire hair follicle and the germinative cells, while preserving surrounding healthy tissue. Laser hair removal is most effective when the hair is in its active growth phase called the anager phase; consequently, multiple treatments scheduled several weeks or months apart are typically required to achieve optimal results.

Lasers and IPL light sources gently remove unwanted hair based on the principle of selective photothermolyisis. This refers to the process whereby the characteristics of the light energy including wavelength and pulse duration are optimized to selectively cause thermal injury to the hair follicle without injuring the surrounding tissue. The light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed in the target pigment (melanin) found in the hair shaft. This causes the temperature to reach a sufficiently high level in the hair follicle so that the targeted hair structures are destroyed and regrowth is inhibited.

The LightSheer Diode Laser System, with its unique combination of parameters, penetrates tissue to destroy the germinative cells at the base of the hair follicle and stunt hair regrowth. At the same time, the aggressive cooling provided by the LightSheer's ChillTipô handpiece minimizes potential collateral epidermal damage caused by light absorption by melanin in the epidermis. The patented ChillTip combined with efficient, reliable, high-power diode technology, makes the family of LightSheer lasers the most advanced hair removal system available and the recognized gold standard for hair removal in the aesthetic marketplace.
