If we want to understand how the Lumenis LightSheer system works, it is important to understand how hair grows and how the laser can remove the hair. Different types of cycles in the hair follicles result in different types of hair. Some examples are: Eyelashes, chest hair, pubic hair, axillary hair, etc.
Short-term hair cycles result in short permanent hair (e.g. Eyebrows, eyelashes), longer-term cycles produce longer hair. (E.g. back hair). Hair follicles develop under the skin. However, they do not grow simultaneously.
We can distinguish three stages of growth:
The duration of each phase depends on several factors. Many clinical studies have shown that an 800 nm wavelength gives the best results for permanent hair reduction in 90% of all skin types (I-VI) by means of high melanin absorption around the treated hair follicles.
The energy of the laser pulse is introduced via the body’s own pigment (melanin) to the core of the hair roots in order to be converted into heat.
This allows the hair follicles to become damaged and no new hair cycle can arise. The surrounding skin is and remains unaffected by this hair removal process.
Only the hairs in the anagen phase can be treated by means of laser light, because only the hair follicles of the hair in this phase contain pigment (melanin).This means that multiple treatments at intervals of ± 4 to 8 weeks are necessary.During the pauses, you will notice that the treated hairs will spontaneously start falling out.
All women and men who want to be freed of unwanted hair can be treated.People with light skin and dark hairs are the most effective to be treated. During a consultation your personalized treatment is discussed.
