A laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light. Different types of lasers produce different colors of light. The color of light produced by a particular laser is the key to its effect on hair follicles.
The light emitted by the special laser system used at the Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, the LightSheer Diode, is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling several follicles at a time to eliminate or significantly impede the hair's regrowth.
And the laser's special contact-cooling handpiece is perfect for a woman's sensitive skin as well as a man's. It directs the laser energy to the hair root while protecting and cooling the surrounding skin.
