How does laser hair removal work?
The Lightsheer diode laser generates a laserbeam with a specific wave length of 810 Nm (1 nanometer = 1 billionth of a meter). The pigment in the hair aborbs the heat and releases this heat inside the hair follicle. This process is called selective photothermolysis. This way, a temperature of 70°C (=158°F) is generated in the follicle. This temperature damages the stam cells of the hair and the blood vessels to the hair that feed the hair and keep it alive. The power of the Lightsheer diode laser will permanently destroy the stam cells and blood vessels. This is necessary in order to prevent the follicle to become active again, and to reach maximum hair reduction. The Lightsheer diode laser is considered the gold standard within the industry because of its ability to destroy the hair permanently. After 7 to 10 days the hair in the treated area will fall out automatically.
Is laser hair removal suitable for everyone?
With Lightsheer diode laser we can safely treat all skin colors. Only blond, grey or red hairs will not respond to the laser because of the lack of pigment in those hairs, so not enough heat can be generated to destroy the follicle. At this moment there is no system available on the market yet that can permanently remove these hairs as well.
Because of Lightsheers's unique chill tip the skin is constantly cooled, so chances of burning the skin is minimal, even with dark skin.
Interval between treatments
Our hairs have 3 stages of growth. The anagen phase is the growth phase, the telogen phase is the transition phase, and the catagen phase is the resting phase. Laser hair removal is only successful on hairs that are in the anagen phase. From the outside, it is not possible to determine in which phase the hair is at this moment. That is exactly the reason that more than one treatment is necessary. Hair grows at different speeds on the different areas of the body. The number of weeks between each treatment depends on the area of the body that is treated and varies between 4 to 12 weeks.
Before the first treatment an intake consultation will take place with one of our laser estheticians to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for a successful treatment or not. There are some contra-indications that we need to consider to safely perform the treatment. We will discuss the risks as well as the dos and don'ts to follow before and after the treatment(s), and fill out a consent form in which you agree you are aware of this.
LightSheer by Lumenis
As you know, Red Carpet Queen Store always strives for the best possible quality in all of their treatments. And that goes for laser hair removal too. The choice of the right laser machine is very important for “permanent” hair removal. That's why Red Carpet Queen Store has chosen the LightSheer by Lumenis. This laser machine is 1 of 3 high power lasers that by the American FDA may use the word permanent.
For the last 15 years, with this machine, the average amount of treatments to become hair free has turned out to be only 5.
For extra protection and comfort for the skin, the LightSheer has a unique cooling system called the ChillTip. As the name says, the ChillTip cools the to be treated skin down, to 4° Celsius. This way, overheating -read: damaging- the skin is as good as not possible. Because of this cooling technique, the treatment is very well bearable, so extra sedation is not necessary. Normally, after the treatment, you can just resume your normal activities.
