Frequently Ask Questions for Laser Hair Removal
What areas can be treated with the LightSher?
It can remove hair from all body parts including the face, legs, arms, underarms & back. Sensitive areas like the chest, nipples and the bikini line can also be worked on.
What do LightSher treatments feel like?
It cools and soothes as it glides along the skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required; however, some patients may prefer to use a typical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
How many treatments will I need?
Most areas require 3-6 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors - hair thickness, the area treated and your hair's growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be re-growth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not re-growing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
