Rethink Hair Removal
Getting rid of excessive and unwanted body hair with exciting speed and amazing comfort is now a reality! Treatment times can now be reduced up to 75% with little or no discomfort. Skin Deep uses theLumenis Lightsheet Duet for permanent hair reduction – so you can save valuable time and eliminate fear of procedure pain.
What are the treatments like?
The LightSheer treatment option for hair removal is great news for both men and women, since backs and legs can now be treated comfortably in about 15-20 minutes, with no need for topical anesthetics or messy treatment gel. First, we cleanse the area to be treated. Then the area is scanned with the laser or light hand piece. The light energy passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy vaporizes the carbon particles in the follicle, disabling hair growth.
What if I have dark skin?
The Lumenis Lightsheer Duet laser is capable of treating all skin types from light to dark skin safely.
How many treatments will I need?
Usually five to seven treatments are sufficient; however, your hair grows in cycles and many factors influence its growth. The number of treatments you may require for optimal long term benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated, the hair density and your hair’s growth cycle. Laser and light systems treat the hair follicles in the growth cycle at the time of the treatment. Since some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after your treatment, multiple treatments may be required to deliver optimal results. Most patients like us to treat until the hair is gone.
What should I do to prepare for my treatments?
The area(s) to be treated must be shaved the day of or the night before treatment. If the area is not shaved, there will be an additional charge or we may not be able to treat you.
After your treatment you can return to your normal activities immediately. Sometimes a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regime especially formulated for your skin type after laser treatments. The use of sunscreen is recommended for 48 hours on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
