Questions and answers

1. Does diode laser hurt?

We use the equipment of new generation with a cooling system, that is why the procedure passes painless. But at the same time do not forget about your individual sensitivity, on which will depend sensations. Clients describe the procedure from the words “I don’t feel anything”, “ordinary discomfort” to “light short-term prickly feeling”. Girls that previously used such methods as epilator, wax and sugaring may feel nothing at all. But if you are still afraid of pain, the specialist may suggest you to do additional anesthesia (an anaesthetize gel with lidocaine is applied to the treated area)

2. Is it allowed to do the procedure during monthlies?

As of this date there are no contraindications that would prohibit epilation with a laser on a specific day of the cycle. There are no serious scientific researches which confirm the negative impact of the laser on the female reproductive organs. With feeling of well-being and high pain limit you should not have any problems.
But often, monthlies are accompanied by discomfort in the lower abdomen and lower pain limit. Therefore, before recording a procedure, consider whether it will be comfortable for you to carry out the procedure at that moment. We do not recommend light sheer of the bikini area on monthlies days.

3. Why it is impossible to remove hair in one procedure?

The laser affects only those hairs that are in the active growth phase (anagen) and contain the maximum amount of melanin. About 30% of such hairs on the body, some of them will be removed during the first procedure. Hair that is in inactive phases (catagen, telogen) by the time of the next procedure will “wake up” and also be partially removed. Thus, gradually (within 6-8 procedures) the skin will become smooth.

4. Does it possible to combine procedures on different laser types?

Yes, if there is a necessity. The main thing is to keep up the intervals between the procedures and all the recommendations of the specialist.

5. Do I need to grow hair before the laser epilation?

The diode laser works on smooth and shaved skin with a gel applied. You need to shave before the procedure and come without a body hair coat.

6. Is laser dangerous?

Despite many disputes and myths, for many years, laser technology has proven its high efficiency and absolute security. It exists in the market of cosmetology services for almost 30 years, during this time enough information has accumulated to speak with confidence about the absence of negative effects on the body (in the absence of a client contraindications to the procedure).

7. Are there any burns after laser epilation?

Light sheer is a completely safe procedure that does not violate the skin integration. Burns may occur only if you do not follow the recommendations of specialist. Therefore, you cannot do the procedure on the tanned skin and sunbathe after the procedure (at least for two weeks). Be sure to use Panthenol or Bepanthen (within 3 days after the procedure).

8. How many light sheer procedures are needed to get rid of undesired hair?

Hair removal is not a one-time procedure, but a whole course! It includes from 8 to 10 procedures that can be regulated by a specialist, depending on the individual characteristics. On average, in case of threading it may take 10-12 procedures.

9. What are the intervals between laser procedures?

We have two visiting schedules for procedures.
In the former case, it is necessary to carry out procedures every month. In the latter case, the interval between procedures is 4, 6, 8, 10,12,14 weeks. The schedule forms individually.

10. Does the light sheer worth the money?

Probably the most important factor of the light sheer service is the price. In our salon there are regular discounts and promotions that allow you to make a light sheer course at a bargain price. Also, according to the rules of our system, the promotion is fixed for our client for the entire course. Without any disputes, for one procedure you will have to pay many times more than for the depilation or sugaring procedure. The only difference is that it is necessary to complete a course of light sheer procedures and forget about undesired hair and monetary costs. But the rest of the methods have to be repeated regularly from month to month, from year to year. Weighing up the PROS and CONS, and relying on the feedbacks, light sheer is the most comfortable, fast and safe procedure and we offer you this type of undesired hair removal.

11. From what age the light sheer is allowed?

Laser sheer can be carried out from the time of endocrine profile stabilization (14-15 years). Teens under 18 y. o. need the presence and written permission of a parent or official guardian.

12. Is light sheer suitable for persons with lanugo, red, blonde or silver hair?

Unfortunately, light sheer is not suitable for lanugo, gray, red and blond hair. They are practically not pigmented and not amenable to laser action.

13. Whereby does light sheer differ from photo epilation?

Photo epilation and light sheer have a general concept, which is called selective photo thermolysis. It is the light pulse of a certain length is absorbed by the melanin pigment contained in the hair, and leads to its heating and destruction. However, there are some differences between laser and photo epilation. The large range of radiation generated by the krypton lamps of the photo epilation machine heats not only the hair follicle, but also the skin, which can lead to burns. The laser beam acts “aiming” only on the follicle and does not damage the skin. Sensations during the photo epilation procedure are quite painful. Also, photo epilators are created more for working with the skin (acne, vascular mesh, wrinkles), hair growth slows while regular procedures are performed, and then active growth is resumed after the course is completed.

14. How to prepare for laser epilation?

Preparation for the procedure begins in advance. In 14 days before the procedure, you cannot visit the solarium or sunbathe at the direct sunlight. In 2-3 weeks prior to light sheer procedure, you should exclude all other types of depilation, except shaving. Do not use alcohol-based lotions / tonics for 3 days before the procedure and for 3 days after the epilation session. In 14 days before the procedure, do not take anticoagulants, tetracycline antibiotics, as well as fluoroquinolone preparations. Thoroughly shave out the epilated area before the procedure (avoid applying to the shaved areas deo sprays, creams, etc.). Do not use lotions, oils, creams in the procedure area on the day of the procedure.

15. How to care for the skin after the procedure?

As it is known, any procedure has its positive and negative sides. For the matter of that, light sheer is not an exception. Here is a brief list of what cannot be done after the light sheer: You cannot sunbathe for two weeks and stay in the sun for a long time, visit the solarium. You cannot pull out the hairs with forceps, use the epilator, do wax depilation and sugaring throughout the course. In the next 3 days after the procedure, do not use peeling, scrub, do not use the pool, bath, sauna and do not swim in open water. Within 72 hours, do not massage the body areas where light sheer was performed.

16. Are there any contraindications for light sheer?

Contraindications for laser hair removal:

  • Diabetes at any stage,
  • oncology,
  • cicatricial keloids,
  • low blood clotting,
  • hormonal dysregulations (polycystic ovary syndrome, high testosterone level),
  • metal in the body in the procedural area,
  • hepatitis,
  • tanned and dark skin,
  • blonde, lanugo, red and silver hair,
  • dermatological diseases,
  • pregnancy,
  • CVD,
  • varicose of severe form

17. How much time it takes for hair to fall out?

After the light sheer hair does not fall out immediately, it takes from 14 to 20 days. It all depends on the depth of the hair follicle, which in turn depends on the treatment zone. The body needs time to push the hair out. Usually, about 7-30% of hair that are in vegetative phase “fall out” in one procedure. Therefore, the classic course of light sheer includes from 8 to 10 treatments, depending on the impact area and the individual body characteristics.

18. Can I do the procedure on the tattoo, pigment spots and moles?

If you have a tattoo, any exposure of laser technology will ruin it forever. The laser removes the pigment and highly damages the skin with the tattoo. During the procedure, the specialist bypasses this area.
It is possible to perform the procedure on age spots; this is not a contraindication.
If the mole is small, then without risk to your health a laser can pass over it. If there is a large mole, the specialist will bypass it.

19. Is it possible for pregnant and lactating mothers to carry out the procedure of light sheer?

It is not recommended to carry out the procedure of light sheer during pregnancy. But this is due primarily to the pain that a woman may experience and the irregular hormones, and therefore the effectiveness of the procedure will be minimal. The laser itself does not affect the fetus.
Breastfeeding is not a contraindication, so after 2-3 months after birth, you can carry out a course of light sheer. Personal experiences and stress can affect lactation, so the procedure for lactating mothers should be as painless as possible, the master selects the power and speed that does not cause discomfort.

20. Why it is restrictions available to take antibiotics of a certain group before the light sheer?

Taking antibiotics of the tetracycline group and fluoroquinolones causes increased photosensitivity, that is, skin sensitivity to various types of radiation became aggravated. Accordingly, while taking antibiotics, the procedure of light sheer can cause irritation, redness and even burns.

21. Why can not I take vitamins during the course of laser hair removal?

There are special complexes of vitamins that are selected to improve the structure of hair and nail plates. It is recommended to pause the intake of such vitamin complexes for the period of laser hair removal. As a rule, we are talking about folic acid, biotin, vitamins of group E and zinc.
These vitamins contain many trace elements that enhance and accelerate the growth of new hairs throughout the body.
In the case of combining the intake of vitamin complexes and hair removal procedures, we will encounter the following series of problems.
Hair will become less susceptible to laser action.
The volume of new hairs will increase.
After the procedure, the number of hairs dropped will decrease.

22. When will I see the result?

You will see the result immediately after the first session, when in 14-20 days after the procedure, between 7 and 30% of hairs that are in the stage of active growth will fall out.
In two to three weeks after the procedure, the hairs begin to grow thinner and weaker, simplifying shaving. Indeed, between procedures you can use your usual razor, however shaving will no longer bring such discomfort as before – hairs become thinner, grow slower, ingrown hairs also become fewer or they disappear altogether.
You need to make a course of 6-8 sessions to stop hair growing. It is a necessity conditioned by our physiology, not a marketing device. The laser can affect only the hairs in the active growth phase, as about 20-30% of the total number of follicles. In order to ensure the result for many years and not to make the client hostage of the light sheer, it is necessary, at high powers, to stimulate the growth of dormant hair in 2, 3 and 4 procedures. This applies to all areas on the body, but face. The procedure is required to carry out more and in larger quantities (individually) on the face.
The result – you get rid of the need for frequent shaving, waxing, plucking, and with it – from wounds and scratches, ingrown hair, irritation. You no longer need to spend time and money on this and get upset if you did not have time to shave before going out.

23. Light sheer: how many sessions are needed and why?

The number of light sheer procedures required to remove hair depends on several factors, such as age, skin type, hair amount in the area being treated, texture and intensity of hair color, thickness, and hormonal balance, since hormones can reduce or increase hair growth over time.
The laser effectively affects only dark hair (black and brown)! Blond, red, silver and lanugo hairs are not removed.
Moreover, hair has different growth phases. One of them is the active phase, also called the anagen. At any time, from 20% to 30% of body hair are in the active phase (depending on the areas). During light sheer, only those hairs that are active are removed.
Only 15-20% of hair is removed in one procedure accordingly. Other hairs in the body are in the catagen phase — a transitional phase where hair growth stops and the outer sheath of the root tightness and attaches to it. 3% of your hair is most likely now at the catagen phase. From 15% to 20% of your hair is at the telogen phase. This is the dormant phase of the follicle. A person loses from 25 to 100 telogen hairs every day.
Thus, it will not be possible to affect all follicles immediately in one procedure and it is necessary to stimulate the growth of dormant hair in order to effectively remove them during the next procedure.
The light sheer gives a better effect for some people than others, because different people have different hair regeneration. But 50% of hair will be removed after 5 procedures. Within eight procedures, this number will most often grow to 90% of permanently removed hair.
Reduction of regenerative process during light sheer will also depend on the treatment area. On some parts of the body, the hairs are more pigmented than on others. And the darker the hair, the better it conducts laser impact to the follicle.
Similarly, answering the question, how many light sheer procedures will be needed for a certain part of the body, you need to build on the hair amount, thickness and body physiology (how quickly your body restores destroyed follicles).

24. Light sheer: interval between procedures

Our salon tested two schedules that are identical in efficiency. The difference is only in the course speed, the physiological characteristics and financial capabilities of the client.
The first schedule is a monthly procedure. It is appointed in the case of follicles rapid recovery. For the face area, this interval between procedures is used exclusively.
The second schedule is 4, 6, 8, 10,12, 14 weeks. Also, the specialist has ability to adjust individually the schedule of light sheer, depending on the results and client preferences.
You have to abide by the schedule for desired result achievement.

25. How many procedures are needed to remove hair in the face area?

Since it is especially important to remove all undesired hairs on the face, light sheer of this area is done monthly, and the course usually consists of 10-12 procedures. But it is very individual, depends on the endocrine fund, hair structure and color.
The specialist may advise you not to carry out the procedure in the face area, if the hair is not dark and hard enough. It is also necessary to be prepared for the fact that the entire course can only be shaved off the hair in the specified area.

26. What to do after the laser epilation?

Follow the schedule and recommendations provided by your specialist. This will allow you to achieve a good result. The effect of light sheer lasts up to 5-7 years, but still rarely germinating hairs can bother you. Hormonal body changes, such as during pregnancy, can trigger increased hair regeneration. Therefore, it is recommended to perform one or two supporting procedures per year. So, you can save the effect of light sheer forever.
