Laser Hair Removal

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

For long-term hair removal, electrolysis is popular and effective but can be painful and slow. Hair by hair, an electric current passes through a needle to destroy the hair root's ability to grow. It typically takes months to destroy the hair root's ability to grow. It typically takes months or even years of regular visits -- even for small areas, like the upper lip. Risks include electrical shock, infection, and pitting or scarring.

Now there's a more effective solution, laser hair removal. Our new state-of-the-art system is the LightSheer Diode Laser -- a system specially designed to remove unwanted hair faster, less painfully and more reliably than electrolysis.
