Main Advantages of Laser Hair Removal

  • No more shaving, which is time-consuming
  • No more uncomfortable waxing or electrolysis 
  • Eliminates razor burn, itchiness, irritation, and ingrown hairs
  • Body hair reduction is 85% permanent 
  • Skin that is always smooth, soft, and ready to go
  • Reduces excessive body hair for those who have overgrowth

How LightSheer DESIRE Works

LightSheer DESIRE targets the pigment within each hair follicle, heating it up to delay or completely stop hair re-growth. The follicle absorbs the laser’s heat energy, which destroys it while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

The lasers target hundreds of hair follicles at once, allowing for quick treatments. After your laser hair removal in the Worcester, MA area, you’ll notice that your hair growth is either completely gone or extremely soft and fine.

LightSheer DESIRE Treatment Details

Before your treatment, it’s important you don’t wax or pluck any hairs because this will remove the pigment at the center of the hair follicle, which the laser targets. However, you should perform a close shave in the treatment area before your appointment for the best results.

Before your treatment, we will get you settled comfortably on an exam chair or table. Your medical provider or one of our trained medical professionals will then set up the laser according to your skin and hair color. Laser hair removal traditionally works best on dark hair on pale skin—but thanks to LightSheer DESIRE, we can successfully treat patients with almost any shade of skin and hair. Those with very light white or gray hair, however, may not qualify for treatment because there will be insufficient pigment for the laser to target.

During the treatment, your provider will then hold the laser wand over the target area. First, the wand will cool your skin to help keep you comfortable. The laser will pulse on and off quickly, staying on just long enough to damage the hair follicle. You may feel heat or stinging in your skin during your treatment, but most patients do not report pain. The Zimmer cooling technology will work to keep you comfortable throughout treatment in addition to the device’s chill tip.

Patients are advised to undergo a minimum of six treatments to see results but may need more. Maintenance treatments can be performed on an as-needed basis.

Downtime and Results

After your laser hair removal in the Worcester, MA area, you can return to your normal activities with no downtime. You may feel a mild, sunburn-like sensation on your skin, swelling, or redness in the treated area for a few days.

Though you’ll begin seeing less hair or thinner, lighter hair after your first treatment, it typically takes about six treatments to see permanent hair reduction. We advise shaving only prior to treatment and between treatments as a means to remove hair, and your treatments will be spaced about 4-8 weeks apart (depending on the area being treated).
