When it comes to permanent hair removal, choosing the best solution for your needs is the first step. At Skinlastiq in Burlingame, we believe the key to this is having more confidence when it comes to choosing the treatment.
LightSheer uses diode laser technology that has been clinically proven to permanently remove unwanted hair. At Skinlastiq, you will consult with your treatment provider, who will help you understand any possible side effects from the laser hair removal. They’ll even do a test patch treatment.
Feel confident, knowing that with LightSheer you will enjoy long-lasting results and feel happier in front of the mirror and in front of others. There are many benefits to getting laser hair removal, including:
The High-Speed Vacuum Assisted Technology uses a unique vacuum mechanism, which overrides sensory receptors in the skin with the sensation of pressure – reducing the sensation of heat during treatment.
The ChillTip™ Technology uses a unique cooling system that can continuously cool the skin and make your experience more comfortable. Your treatment provider will design your treatment plan depending on the body area, as well as your skin and hair type.
LightSheer® uses a state-of-the-art diode laser handpiece with a wavelength of either 805nm or 1060nm. Your treatment provider will tailor your treatment depending on the body area, your skin and hair type.
What makes it special?
Lumenis has been pioneering laser hair removal for 50 years, so you know you’re getting expert treatment. Only LightSheer® features two unique technologies:
Lasers are more effective when hair is at an early growth stage. Because not all hairs will be at the same stage of growth at the same time, you’ll need multiple treatments to permanently remove the unwanted hair.
How the area will look afterward varies from person to person, depending on skin and hair type. You may have some redness and swelling around hair follicles straight after, but don’t be alarmed – it’s only a response to the treatment. In the following weeks, some hairs will shed from the treated area. You will notice less hair growth as you progress through the course of your treatments.
Your treatment provider will give you some guidance for looking after your skin and protecting it from the sun after it’s been treated.
It is recommended to have four-six sessions to get rid of unwanted hair. The number of treatments can vary between individuals, depending on the amount of hair, the area to be treated, skin color, hair color and hair coarseness.
Each session will be spaced about a month apart. One of our providers can give you a more specific treatment plan tailored to your needs during your consultation.
Anyone who is frustrated or disturbed by the undesirable hairlines can be a candidate for the procedure. However, for you to be the perfect candidate, you must be in a good health condition.
You are given a personalized treatment plan. You should adhere to the plan, accordingly. Typically, you are advised to avoid waxing or tweezing at least six weeks before the procedure.
Our hair removal laser treatment can be summarized in three words, and these are fast, cost-effective, and painless. It is non-invasive and doesn’t involve surgery. We don’t require anesthesia, but a numbing cream can be applied to make sure it will be a painless experience.
Our practitioner specialized in this treatment procedure. Hence, the precise setting will be administered during the procedure. Follow-up treatments may be required to make sure that the hair stops to grow. We usually achieve six cycles of hair growth and laser treatments to remove the hair.
