Laser Hair Removal with LightSheer™
We are proud to be able to offer our clients LightSheer™ laser - the best available system for Laser Hair Removal!
Both in rigorous scientific trials as well as extensive clinical practice, LightSheer™ system has emerged as the world recognized "Gold Standard" in laser hair removal.
The LightSheer™ laser was developed in 1994 and the first hair removal study began in July 1996. The FDA cleared the device for treatments in December 1997. The FDA then granted it's claim for permanent hair reduction in April 1999 after it demonstrated in a 3000 person study a better than 50% permanent hair loss after only 3 treatments!
As of today LightSheer™ still remains unsurpassed as the best laser for hair removal being the most effective and preferred device and a big favourite among both practitioners and clients who know the difference.

There are cases when laser treatments are not recommended due to various reasons. For example, white, blond or reddish hair does not have enough melanin pigment and does not sufficiently absorb laser light. Very fine "peach fuzz" type hair is too fine and also does not absorb sufficient amount of laser light for effective removal. When the skin is very dark - so it is almost the same colour as the hair - there is a potential for not only the hair but also the skin to be affected by the treatment - so the treatment might not be advisable.
Certain areas - such as eyebrows - are not to be lasered at all due to their close proximity to the eye. That's where electrolysis comes in to safely shape the eyebrows permanently.
And, finally, some clients who take photosensitizing medications or some other type of photo-sensitivity can not do laser treatments due to safety reasons.
Because electrolysis is not light based it is the only available option for these categories of clients who still want there hair to be removed permanently.

The results are temporary and last only a few weeks, however for those who want to have a temporary change it is a good choice.
