LightSheer Desire Diode laseris a new technologie that combines a precise wavelength to permanently destroy hair and a suction feature to numb the nerves in order to make a laser treatment more comfortable on larger body areas, such as laser for a full back, full legs, full arms as well as laser treatments for abdomen and chest. A separate patch test will be required to establish the correct settings for your skin type and to make sure that the treatment is safe yet effective.
The manufacturer of the LightSheer Desire laser recommends 6-8 sessions for laser treatments for women and 8-10 sessions for men. However, from experience, we do not recommend to buy a course of 6 sessions (for women) or 8 sessions (for men) as LightSheer is a medical grade laser (very powerful), and you may not need more than 6 sessions if you are a woman, or more than 8 sessions if you are a man.
It is recommended to complete your laser hair removal course within the space of 12 months.
Why can all of the hair be permanently removed in one laser session? Why do we need to come for a laser session several times?
The reason why the hair cannot be destroyed in one session is due to the fact that our hair grows in cycles: all hair in a growing phase at the time of the treatment will be permanently destroyed. Then, you will have to wait between 4-6 weeks (depending on the body area) until the next cycle of hair that was in a dormant phase, grows into an active phase, so that the laser beam would be able to target the pigment in the hair in a growing phase, and destroy it for good by cutting off the blood supply to the follicle. When it happens, follicle will never be able to produce hair again.
