What is Laser Hair Removal?

The Lumenis LightSheer DESIRE is the world’s gold standard laser hair removal machine, which offers permanent hair removal with unparalleled treatment speed and efficacy with optimal patient comfort. The Lumenis LightSheer DESIRE is more than 75% faster than the average laser hair removal session, and also features the unique HIT and ChillTip technologies for pain relief.

Additionally, the LightSheer Desire is a smart economical choice, saving you time and money spent on temporary hair removal solutions. The Lumenis LightSheer Desire laser hair removal machine uses a state-of-the-art 805nm diode laser, which ensures safety for the treatment of ALL SKIN TYPES, contrary to older or less effective laser hair removal machines that can burn darker skin types. Repeated laser pulses target existing hair, creating a direction of energy into the hair follicles which prevent future growth. The LightSheer Desire allows your physician to truly customise treatment for your hair type and skin type.

A course of at least 6 treatments are required for more permanent hair removal.

How does it work?

During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

 

Is the treatment painful?

Most people describe the treatment as uncomfortable rather than painful. The level of discomfort varies between individuals and the different areas being treated. Some people feel nothing, some feel a heat sensation, and some have likened the sensation to mild stinging or the flicking of a rubber band. Generally the coarser or thicker the hair, the greater the sensation. There is usually some form of skin response post treatment, normally a mild redness.

 

Are the results permanent?

Results vary from person to person and hormonal changes can affect these, which is why we say that this process is a way of permanently reducing hair growth in targeted areas. Most clients require a minimum of 6 – 8 sessions to see the best results, however, this is dependent on the individual and we recommend top up sessions at least once a year to ensure hair growth stays reduced.

 

How often are treatments performed?

Typically there should be 6-8 weeks in between each session, but your technician will discuss a tailored treatment plan with you.

 

Who can receive laser hair removal treatment with Carbon Blush and the Lumenis LightSheer Desire?

We can treat all skin types and both men and women.

 

What can I expect during a laser hair removal session?

Your practitioner will talk you through a basic consultation ensuring you have adhered to the pre-treatment protocols, asking questions to ensure that you are not likely to suffer from any adverse effects like burning. Following this both yourself and the practitioner will wear protective eyewear and commence use of the laser head on the appropriate area.

 

What’s the difference between our laser and IPL?

IPL stands for ‘Intense Pulsed Light’. Our hair removal system uses a direct red laser light, which is stronger, to destroy the hair follicle and inhibit future hair growth. IPL technology is much older and more painful. A client would require many more treatments of IPL in order to achieve maximum hair reduction, whereas the Lumenis LightSheer DESIRE will produce better results in a smaller amount of sessions. Older IPL is known for only being able to treat certain skin types, but with new technology lasers such as the LightSheer Desire, we are able to treat all skin types.

 

Are there any pre-treatment and post-treatment care instructions?

Yes! Please refer to our protocols section for more information.
