Laser Hair Removal with the LightSheer Desire

Are you sick of constantly plucking, waxing or shaving unwanted body hair, only to see it grow back? Consider laser hair removal at Plateroti Dermatology, which serves Templeton and neighboring areas in California. We use the LightSheer® Desire™ system to reduce hair from many areas of the body, including the face, bikini area, arms and legs.

What is Laser Hair Reduction?

Laser hair removal or reduction is a procedure that uses an intense, pulsing beam of light called a laser to remove unwanted hair. Unlike other methods of hair removal like shaving or waxing, laser hair reduction at our office has the advantage of being more permanent, for it destroys the follicles from which hair grows. It, therefore, prevents hair from growing back.

Laser hair removal works only on hair in the growing stage. About 15 to 20 percent of a client’s hair will be in the growing phase at any given time. The rest of the hair will be in the catagen or transition phase and the resting phase. As a result of the hair life cycle, a client will typically need to undergo multiple treatments to get the desired results. In addition, since it takes several weeks for hair to enter the growing phase, we schedule each session a set amount of time apart.

What Does Laser Hair Removal Involve?

We are proud to use the LightSheer® Desire™ system for laser hair removal. It was developed over ten years ago and, thus, has a proven track record in terms of safety and efficacy. The system includes vacuum-assisted technology that gently pulls the skin closer and stretches it so the laser can more readily target the hair. The technology also reduces the discomfort experienced by the client to the point that most do not need a local anesthetic. The system also includes a special technology that can cool sensitive treatment sites and reduce the client’s discomfort.
