How the New LightSheer™ Diode Laser for Hair Removal Works
The new, specially designed LightSheer™ Diode Laser effectively removes unwanted, excess hair much faster, more reliably, and more comfortably than standard long-term methods like electrolysis and electrothermolysis.
 


How does the LightSheer™ diode laser work?

A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. Different types of lasers produce different colors of light. The light emitted by the LightSheer™ diode laser is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) located in hair follicles (melanin pigments give hair its color) and hair shaft. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment - disabling several hair follicles at a time to eliminate or significantly impede the hair's re-growth - but not long enough to damage the surrounding skin. The LightSheer™ diode laser's special contact-cooling handpiece further protects the epidermis (upper layer of skin). The patented method of epidermal preservation allows delivery of more laser energy deeper into the hair follicle.
