Laser hair removal has been used by millions of men and women who wish to avoid the tasks of shaving, waxing, threading, and other methods of temporarily removing unwanted hair. At EsthetixMD, we insist on the very best. We are proud to offer laser hair removal with the FDA-cleared LightSheer diode laser system.
How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The wavelengths of light produced by our device are safely absorbed into hundreds of follicles simultaneously in a single pulse of light. This pulse lasts only a fraction of a second, but quickly vaporizes existing hair. The controlled heat disables the follicle's hair-producing capabilities, leading to lasting results.
Which areas can be treated?
Non-invasive treatment with the LightSheer system can be performed on all areas of the body, including the face, underarms, arms, back, legs, chest, nose, bikini area, and more.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Sophisticated technology prevents energy spikes, delivering a continuous flow of laser light for safety and comfort. This device is appropriate even for sensitive areas because it features a cooling tip that maintains comfortable temperatures on the skin's surface.
How many treatments are needed?
Laser hair removal is popular because it eliminates the need for continual grooming such as shaving and plucking. To achieve this goal, we will schedule a number of sessions in our comfortable office. Each laser treatment will affect the active growth cycle. Laser sessions are scheduled accordingly to address the complete cycle, ridding you of unwanted hair for good. To keep skin ultra-smooth, many of our patients schedule touch-up treatments yearly.
What can be expected during laser hair removal?
When you visit EsthetixMD for laser hair removal, we focus on your comfort. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, we may apply topical anesthetic. Most patients find that laser treatments are very mild, causing little to no discomfort. The pulses of thermal energy absorbed by follicles tend to feel like a quick snap or pinch.
Are there side effects from treatment?
After laser treatment, the skin may appear slightly red, with minor swelling around hair follicles. It is also possible that you will experience no side effects at all. Whatever effects occur after treatment should not keep you from returning to your normal activities right away.
If you are ready to see your smoothest skin, we are here to help. Contact EsthetixMD today to consult with a member of our experienced staff about laser hair removal.
Is laser hair removal appropriate for all skin types and hair colors?
Historically, laser hair removal treatment has been most efficient on individuals with darker hair color. However, the latest devices have shown promising results for people with light brown, red, and even blonde hair.

For optimal results, a series of six treatments is typically required. After you’ve completed your series, you can expect the area to be 85-95 percent free of hair. In some cases, additional treatments are needed to reach your goals.
You may experience redness and heat comparable to a mild sunburn for up to 24 hours after a session, along with some mild bumping similar to razor burn. These should clear within 48 hours.
There is no downtime, but we do provide pre- and post-procedure instructions for you to follow, for maximum efficacy and safety of your treatment.
Laser hair removal will permanently remove 75-95 percent of the hair targeted after six or more treatments. The hair remaining after your series will be less coarse and less dark. Over time, hormonal changes or previously dormant hair follicles may stimulate new hair growth, so touch up treatments may be required.
The treatment is very comfortable for most people. Our laser is equipped with chill tip technology to cool your skin during treatment. We also use cold air, ice packs, and chilled gel to improve your experience.
Cost is based on the size of the area to be treated, and the number of treatments needed to reach optimal results. Generally, you’ll need six treatments spaced every four to six weeks. Some clients require extra treatments due to skin type, hair color, or coarseness.
