LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Tired of shaving every day? Wish you never again had to wax? Want to permanently erase unsightly hair? Then you’ve come to the right place.
Laser hair removal is the world’s most requested aesthetic treatment and 5th Avenue Medical Clinic proudly offers effective laser hair removal procedures.
More and more people desire to have permanent hair reduction. They want a treatment that is effective, fast and comfortable. Confidence might look like a small thing from the outside, but it feels big on the inside. LightSheer® DESIRE™ can help to give you that confidence each day!
The Lumenis LightSheer which is a diode laser, is considered ‘the gold standard’ by many practitioners and has excellent results with many different skin types.
Laser hair removal targets the entire hair structure, from the hair shaft, down to the follicle, meeting the principle of selective photothermolysis. Light energy with a specific wavelength is primarily absorbed by the endogenous chromophore melanin resulting in rapid heating which is required for local thermal necrosis of the follicles’ regenerative structures.
To achieve permanent hair removal, the laser system must be able to effectively treat the different hair types and colours as well as the various skin types while providing maximum skin protection. The laser’s wavelength, pulse duration and spot size determine the effectiveness of the treatment (on all skin types) and also influence the depth of penetration and treatment speed.
The Lumenis’ LightSheer® DESIRE™ uses 805nm diode laser technology that has become a well-established method for photoepilation. The LightSheer technology by Lumenis has been validated in numerous clinical studies and peer reviewed articles. Our customers benefit from the LightSheer features and enjoy high patient satisfaction.
High-Speed Integrated Vacuum Assisted Technology uses a unique vacuum mechanism that activates the skin’s tactile and pressure receptors to inhibit the transmission of pain. ChillTip™ Technology improves patient comfort by cooling the skin prior to treatment and continuously cooling it throughout the treatment.
This top-of-the-line laser hair removal machine is FDA approved and gives some of the best results that are possible today although the results may vary depending on hormone level and skin type.
