Laser hair removal
The LightSheer™ Diode laser is used to eliminate unwanted hair on the face and body. It is more efficient and less painful than traditional waxing and electrolysis treatments.
This laser delivers high-energy light pulses onto the hair follicle, permanently eliminating it. The number of sessions needed for this treatment depends on the areas to be treated. A complete epilation of the legs usually necessitates about 7 to 8 sessions lasting 90 minutes each, while an upper lip hair removal normally requires 10 to 14 sessions lasting 15 minutes each.
The sessions are delivered at an interval of 3 months for treatment on the body, and at an interval of 2 months for treatment on the face.
> Before obtaining a cosmetic treatment, it is important to schedule a consultation during which you can openly discuss your goals and expectations with a physician. The physician will evaluate your treatment options, the required amount of visits, as well as the risks and benefits associated with each procedure.
