LightSheer Laser is noted for its therapeutic flexibility in treating all skin types, including tanned skin. You no longer have to wait until your tan fades to have treatments. It can treat a broad range of hair colors, hair diameters (coarse and fine), and depth of follicles. Unwanted dark, coarse hair can be removed from virtually any body area: ears, nostrils, face, underarms, arms, bikini area, back, chest, toes. Generally, 5-8 laser hair reduction treatments are needed. These are performed every 4-6 weeks. Laser hair removal eliminates problems associated with waxing, and shaving; i.e. ingrown hairs, skin irritation, skin discoloration, and folliculitis.There is minimal down time with the treatments.

This laser is also approved by the FDA for treating a condition called pseudofolliculitis barbae or razor bumps. This problem develops when hairs are removed by plucking, waxing or shaving. The hairs regrow at an angle, curving back into the skin causing red bumps, pustules, in grown hairs, scarring, and discoloring the skin as a result of the irritation. This can be effectively treated by laser hair removal.
