You're probably sick and tired of having hair growth in places it shouldn't be! It's irritating, time consuming and sometimes embarrassing. In addition to the appearance, problems such as ingrown hairs, folliculitis and skin rashes can be the after-effects of frequent plucking, waxing or shaving. The doctors at Laser Skin Care have many years experience in dealing with these concerns using laser hair removal, the most effective method of long-term hair control.
The LightSheer laser represents state-of-the-art technology for laser hair removal. Utilising diode semiconductors to generate the laser beam at a wavelength of 810nm in the near infra-red spectrum, it allows deeper penetration into the skin than was previously possible, so targeting the very deepest part of the hair root (follicle). As a result, better results can usually be expected.
The LightSheer laser can be successfully & safely used on all areas of the body.
Utilising a large square spot and a rapid firing rate (2 per second) allows quick treatments and the fully integrated chill tip reduces the discomfort significantly. Complications are minimised by protecting the skin against overheating and burning. The chilled skin allows higher powers than were previously possible to be used routinely. Higher powers maximise effect on hair growth.
What are the advantages of laser over IPL hair removal?
At Laser Skin Care, we see many patients who have undergone and failed IPL hair removal treatment. Widespread promotion of IPL hair removal treatments rarely mentions the failure rate, or the other relatively common issue with IPL's - paradoxical stimulation of hair growth (where underpowered treatment stimulates hair growth). This is quite common in darker skin types - eg, olive mediterranean people, Indian and Asian skins.
- We have had over 18 years experience with treating darker skin types safely & effectively.
- Don't trust your skin to poorly trained practitioners with inferior equipment.
- True laser hair removal can only be performed by registered medical practitioners in Western Australia.
