For men & women

 LightSheer™ laser is the first diode laser cleared by the FDA for “Permanent Hair Reduction”.  Unlike other machines on the market, the LightSheer™ is a laser, making it more effective, and also requiring physician supervision.  Salons and day spas cannot use the laser without physician supervision. 

 Who performs the laser treatments?

 At Women’s Healthcare Associates, Nia Kessler, M.D., M.S., performs all the laser hair removal procedures. 

How does it work?

 The LightSheer™ laser emits light at a specific wave-length that selectively destroys the hair follicle.  A cooling tip on the laser protects the skin from injury.  No creams or any other substances need to be applied to the skin before treatment, as with some other hair removal methods. 

Treatments are given four to six weeks apart, in order to destroy hairs that were in the resting stage during previous treatments.  Patients generally require between 3 and 6 treatments, after which 85% - 95% of the hair will not re-grow.  Any re-growth that occurs is typically finer and lighter.

 While all skin types can be treated effectively, the LightSheer™ works best on dark hair on light skinned patients.  Blond or gray hair does not respond well to these laser treatments.  Please call 561-620-6262 if you need more information on how the laser works.

How long does the procedure take?

 The length of the procedure depends on the size of the area to be treated.  The upper lip takes only a few minutes, while the underarms take 15 to 20 minutes and the bikini line takes 30 minutes or more.  Legs and thighs obviously take significantly more time, therefore several sessions will be needed for upper and lower leg treatment. Please call 561-620-6262 if you need more information on how long the procedures take.
