Laser Hair Removal Services With The LightSheer Diode Laser

You may be surprised to learn that virtually your entire body is covered with hair. Because most of this hair is fine and pale, it is usually invisible to the naked eye. But, when darker, coarser hair appears in places which may make you uncomfortable—like on the face, neck, abdomen, breasts, legs, or underarms in women, or on the shoulders, chest and back in men, it may be time to consider laser hair removal. Dr. Zdinak is pleased to offer her patients professional in - office laser hair removal with the LightSheer™ diode laser. Dr. Zdinak is also a licensed distributor of the Silk’n™ personal hair removal device designed for use at home.

In the past, the usual remedies for unwanted hair included plucking, shaving, waxing, or chemical depilatories. Some are painful, some are messy, and all are only temporary.

Laser hair removal is a more effective solution. The LightSheer™ diode laser is the most advanced treatment for effective removal of unwanted hair. A 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. An important part of the procedure is the cooling of the skin. A special contact-cooling handpiece protects and cools the upper layer of the skin before, during, and after each laser pulse while directing the laser energy to the hair root. The length of the laser treatment may last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. A series of 4-6 treatment sessions spaced 3-4 weeks apart is usually all that is required to achieve permanent hair reduction for all skin types!
