More Information about Laser Hair Removal

For Men & Women

LightSheer Diode Laser is the world's most advanced treatment for the effective removal of unwanted hair. This is great news for women and men, both young and old, who want to get rid of excess hair. Depending on your needs, most body areas can be treated with this state-of-the-art technology.

Hair Growth Phases

Discount Packages AvailableHair's active growth phase is called anagen. During anagen, the hair contains an abundance of melanin.

Catagen is the regression phase when the lower part of the hair stops growing but is not shed, and the follicle is reabsorbed.

The resting phase is called telogen, during which the old hair falls out in preparation for the development of new hair.

Now There's a Better Solution for Unwanted Hair

Both men and women may already know that just about the entire human body is covered with hair. Some is coarse and dark, and some is fine and so pale that it isn't visible to the naked eye. Humans, in fact, have more hair follicles per square inch than most higher primates.

When darker, coarser hair begins to appear on a woman's body in places she doesn't like or expect like on the face, neck, abdomen, breasts, arms, or underarms, legs and bikini area it may prevent her from wearing a high-cut bathing suit, shorts, or even a short skirt.

As a man, shaving or trimming his beard or mustache are regular grooming tasks he is used to. But what he may not like is that bothersome excess hair on his back, shoulders, chest, around the ears, or between the eyebrows that seems to grow back faster than can be shaved. Or perhaps he is a competitive athlete for whom regular shaving of body hair is a tedious chore.

Ingrown hairs are a special problem that can cause uncomfortable, unsightly bumps below the chin and the neck.

Understanding 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. Hair by hair, an electric current passes through a needle to destroy the hair root's ability to grow. It is a permanent change and is great for small areas, like between the eyebrows. Norris Cosmetic has years of experience in electroysis treatment.

Now there's a more effective solution, the new LightSheer Diode Laser, a state-of-the-art system specially designed to remove unwanted hair faster and is perfect for larger areas and faster treatment.

Understanding Laser Treatment

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 one of the keys to its effect on hair follicles.

The light emitted by the LightSheer Diode Laser is well absorbed by the pigment located in hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporize the pigment, disabling numerous follicles at a time to eliminate or significantly impede the hair's regrowth.

Importantly, LightSheer's special contact-cooling hand piece is perfect for one's skin. It protects and cools the upper layer of the skin before, during, and after each pulse while directing the laser energy to the hair root. The combination of this aggressive skin cooling and other key laser parameters allows safe and effective treatment of all skin colors.

What You Can Expect

The length of a laser session may last from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size of the area being treated. Because the laser tends to treat hair follicles that are in an active growth phase, several treatments are generally required because only a portion of the hairs are in this phase at any one time.
