Lumenis Lightsheer® Desire™

Permanent Hair Reduction

Lumenis Lightsheer® Desire™

Unlike traditional methods of hair removal that are painful, messy and are time consuming and costly such as waxing, plucking, threading, electrolysis and chemical depilatories, the Lumenis Lightsheer® Desire™ is a permanent hair reduction solution based on clinically proven diode laser technology.  It is comfortable and effective.  It features 2 laser hair removal technologies:-

  • High Speed Vacuum assisted technology for large treatment areas, requiring no preparation and no gel.
  • ChillTip™ Sapphire integrated cooling for smaller, more delicate treatment areas.

The Lumenis LightSheer® Desire™ has become a well-established method for photo-epilation. This technology has been validated in numerous clinical studies and peer reviewed articles. Our customers benefit from the LightSheer® Desire™ features and enjoy high patient satisfaction.

How Does it Work?

Lightsheer® Desire™ uses a state of the art diode laser handpiece emitting 2 different but specific wavelengths which allow a tailored treatment for all skin types.  A laser pulse targets the entire hair structure from the hair shaft down to the follicle, meeting the principle of thermal damage known as selective photo-thermolysis, whilst the surrounding tissue remains unharmed. The light energy is primarily absorbed by the melanin of the hair resulting in rapid heating.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it right for me?

A full assessment will be made by your practitioner and an individual treatment plan will be devised that is tailored to your body’s needs to achieve the results you are hoping for.

What can I expect after treatment?

The appearance of the treated area following treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on the characteristics of the patient and the treatment given.

During the treatment, some hairs will shed from the follicle in the following weeks.  Transient redness and swelling around the hair follicle may appear immediately after the treatment, but are in fact, positive results indicating the follicles response to the treatment.

Following the treatment, you will be provided with guidelines, namely in terms of sun exposure.

When will I see results?

Multiple treatments are required to achieve permanent hair reduction.  This is due to the increased effect of the laser on hair in the early growth stage (anagen).  Not all the hairs are in the same phase at a given time.
