What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is the process of removing hair by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle. During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Only about 60% of your body hair is in the growth phase that is susceptible to the laser at any given time. Laser hair removal treatments should be done every few weeks to allow enough time for your hair to be in an active stage of growth for the laser to effectively target your hair follicle. Typically, 4-6 treatments on a given area are needed for permanent hair reduction.
You will typically see results instantly, and with each consecutive treatment, you will continue to see your hair diminish. Laser hair removal is effective in slowing and diminishing hair growth, but it does not guarantee permanent hair removal.

High-Speed LightSheer Duet Reduces Treatment Times
Dr. Parvin Mani of San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic uses a High-Speed LightSheer® Duet laser hair removal machine that beams light to the hair follicle. The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the energy and heat, causing damage to the follicle and inhibiting future hair growth.
Combined with innovative vacuum-assist technology, the High-Speed LightSheer Duet reduces treatment times up to 75% compared to other lasers, with little to no discomfort. The High-Speed LightSheer Duet laser is equipped with two tip sizes: one for smaller areas like underarms and bikini lines, and one for larger areas like legs and backs. The larger tip allows for comfortable and rapid treatment of large areas.
