If your hairs are black to light brown then, yes it will work. You will see a dramatic difference after the first treatment. (It does not work on blond, white, gray or red hair)
How will I know if the treatment is working?
Some of your hairs will actually jump out of the skin! This is a reaction that only happens with the more powerful and affective machines.
What is LightSheer Diode Laser and how does it work?
Laser hair removal works by being absorbed into pigment. If the hair has a blood supply at the time of treatment, that hair will die and never come back. Unfortunately all the hairs are at different stages of growth all the time, thats why a course of treatments is required.
How many treatments are necessary? And how often?
Face – 8 Treatments (Every 4 weeks)
Body – 6-8 Treatments (Every 6 weeks)
Is the treatment permanent?
It is not possible to get 100% permanent reduction. On average 85-95% will be permanently reduced after having between 6-8 treatments. Most companies offer no guarantees, only that your results may vary! We are different.
How long must the hair be before I can come in for consultation & test patch?
The hair for a test patch must be showing above the surface of the skin.
Should the hairs be shaved prior to treatment?
YES.All areas should be shaved as near to the appointment as possible. The night before or morning of, is fine.
Can I still remove hair between treatments?
You may shave, or trim hair between treatments. However, you should pluck, wax or in any way remove the hairs from the follicles.
Can all areas/skin be treated?
We do not treat dark moles, tattoos, under the eyebrows and skin that is very pigmented.

Will I experience any side effects following treatment?
Most commonly, you may experience a slight sunburnt feeling and some redness to the treated area for a couple of hours after treatment.

Ideally no sun exposure or sun beds throughout treatment but particularly for 2 weeks after. The skin should be back to normal and as pale as possible before treatment can start again.
