To remove unwanted hair quickly
The powerful LightSheer XC Diode is one of the most effective hair removal lasers in the world. Its effectiveness is due to its narrow beam and high wavelength, which make it possible to target the root of the hair with great precision.
LightSheer XC sends light pulses that penetrate the skin. The light beam, which is absorbed by the hair’s pigment, damages the hair follicle and destroys the hair permanently.
Dr. Charbonneau, a specialized cosmetic dermatologist, has been using laser technology to remove unwanted hair since 1997. While at the Institut du laser cutané de l’Outaouais, he has supervised more than 65, 000 sessions of laser hair removal. He was the first dermatologist in Canada to use Diode LightSheer laser.
What does the treatment consist of?
1.5 to 2 hours before your appointment, it is important to shave the zone to be treated, apply the prescribed anesthetic cream and wrap it with a Saran Wrap-type plastic sheet. This procedure will maximize the effectiveness of the treatment and minimize discomfort.
Length of the session: from a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the area to be treated.
The LightSheer Diode laser removes hair quickly and can tackle large zones.
Frequecy: The number and frequency of sessions varies according to skin type and hair colour.
Are there side effects?
As is the case with all laser hair removal, the use of the LightSheer XC may produce side effects:
- Localized redness lasting a few hours and up to few days
- Localized skin swelling lasting less than 24 hours
- Blisters and skin crusts from burn resulting from either a laser used at too high a level for your skin type or a technical malfunction. This speaks to the importance of being treated under the supervision of a specialized cosmetic dermatologist.
Sun exposure is strongly discouraged in the days following treatment.
Is it painful?
Laser hair removal, as is well known, is painful. However, it can be a painless experience if an anesthetic cream is applied prior to treatment as per our recommendation. If you have undergone laser hair removal without resorting to anesthetic cream and felt no pain, ask yourself some questions about its effectiveness!
Light Sheer XC Diode laser is specially designed to remove unwanted hair quickly, efficiently and with as little pain as possible.
What types of skin conditions can the Lightsheer XC laser correct?
- Unwanted hair
- Ingrown hair
LightSheer XC Diode technology gives you the soft skin you deserve!
