Laser Hair Removal 2017

How did laser hair removal technology
develop through the years?

In the history of hair removal, the humans have been trying to get rid of unwanted hair in some areas. Perhaps long cumbersome locks that would get in the way during a woolly mammoth hunt, the Neanderthal practiced primitive forms of shaving and hair cutting. As of today, several techniques have been introduced such as shaving, threading, waxing, sugaring and the like. These techniques are all effective in removing the unwanted hair in different areas however, they all have their drawbacks. Shaving doesn’t remove hair roots, thus, the need to perform it over and over again, which is not good for the skin. Threading, waxing and sugaring has more lasting effects than shaving, the catch, however, is that all of these techniques are painful and uncomfortable. Plus, too much itching occurs when the hair starts to grow back.

From using abrasive tools, a modern technological method of hair removal was developed: laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is an advanced method in removing hair by targeting the roots of hair beneath the surface of the skin using a laser. In the past, laser hair removal only worked for lighter skin and darker hair, now it also works for darker skin. LightSheer by Lumenis provides long-term hair reduction that is tolerable without topical anesthetic; requires shorter treatment sessions; and works on all skin types.

The Lumenis’ LightSheer® systems (INFINITY™, DESIRE™, DUET™) uses 805nm diode laser technology that has become a well-established method for photoepilation. Treatment can be customized to optimally meet the needs of each patient by tailoring treatment accuracy, efficacy, safety, comfort and speed. Several advancements in the LightSheer system include:

Vacuum Assisted High-Speed Integrated Technology.

A large 22×35 mm spot size enables the use of low-fluence or low flux of radiation/particle stream. With a unique mechanism for pain reduction providing an effective, fast and comfortable treatment; and

ChillTipTM Technology.

Epidermal protection is attained with the integrated contact cooling.


Benefits from using LightSheer includes:

  • Short treatment time. LightSheer prides its high-speed integrated vacuum assisted technology that allows shorter time for treating large areas of the body added by the absence of prep time and no required cooling or anaesthetics;
  • Comfortable treatment. LightSheer uses a unique vacuum mechanism that activates the skin’s tactile and pressure receptors to inhibit transmission of pain. Comfort is improved through the integrated contact cooling of the ChillTipTM technology
  • Long lasting results. LightSheer targets the hair roots and destroy them, thus, providing longer time for the hair to grow back. Doing this for four to seven sessions usually means permanently removing the hair. Absence of the hair roots means softer and better-looking skin.

Although there are developments in technology in laser hair removal and through this, several procedures have been more efficient and effective, still, the most important factor in having a beautiful and problem-free treatment is to choose the best and the most trusted therapist and/or skin clinic.
