There is a better solution for removing unwanted hair – Get Laser Hair Removal in Niagara Falls Today

You may be surprised to learn that virtually your entire body is covered with hair. Because most of this hair is fine and pale, it usually isn’t visible to the naked eye.

But when darker, coarser hair appears in places which may make you uncomfortable- like on the face, neck, abdomen, breasts, legs or underarms in women or on the shoulders, chest and back in men, it may be time to consider laser hair removal with the LightSheer™ diode laser.

In the past, the usual Laser Hair Removal remedies for unwanted hair included plucking, shaving, waxing or chemical depilatories. Some are painful, some are messy and all are only temporary.

For longterm laser hair removal treatments, electrolysis is popular and effective, but it is a time consuming procedure, which can be painful and is useful only in removing hair in small areas. During electrolysis, an electric current passes through a needle to destroy each individual hair root. It typically takes months and numerous regular visits to clear even small areas, like the upper lip.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL NIAGARA FALLS- Laser hair removal is a more effective solution. The LightSheer™ Diode laser is a state-of-the-art system specially designed to remove unwanted hair faster, with less discomfort and more reliably than other methods.

About LightSheer™ laser hair removal treatment Niagara Falls

A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted by the LightSheer™ diode laser is well absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, long enough to heat up the hair and significantly impede the follicle’s ability to re-grow. This process also treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously. Therefore, LightSheer™ is appropriate for treating even the largest areas of the body both quickly and effectively.

An important part of the laser hair removal procedure is the cooling of the skin. A special contact-cooling hand piece allows your physician to treat even the most sensitive skin. It protects and cools the upper layer of the skin before, during and after each laser pulse while directing the laser energy to the hair root.

What can you expect from Laser Hair Removal Niagara Falls

The length of a laser hair removal treatment may last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. It is important to know that the hairs in an active growth phase (referred to as anagen) are most affected by the laser. As all hairs are not in this phase at the same time, more than one laser hair removal treatment will be necessary to achieve the best result.

Hair’s active growth phase is called anagen. During anagen, the hair contains an abundance of melanin. Hairs in this phase are most affected by treatment. Catagen is the regression phase when the lower part of the hair stops growing but is not shed, and the follicle is reabsorbed. The resting phase is called telogen, during which the old hair falls in preparation for the development of new hair.

The laser hair removal treatment itself may cause some discomfort. Most patients tolerate the procedure well, but because some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, topical anesthesia can be an option.

Side effects, if any are minor. They may include redness and swelling around the hair follicle, which are, in fact, desired clinical results and indicate that the follicle has responded to the treatment.
