Troutman Family Medicine uses the LightSheer Diode Laser System to safely and permanently remove unwanted hair. The Lightsheer Diode is unique among present hair removal lasers because it has a patented contact-cooling handpiece to protect the skin and minimize any discomfort.

Q: How does the LightSheer Diode Laser System work?
A:  The system emits near-infrared laser light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed, or turned on, for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle, while the system's unique, patented contact-cooling handpiece, the ChillTip(TM), helps protect the skin by conductive cooling during the laser energy delivery.

Q:  What advantages does the LightSheer have over other laser hair removal systems?
A:  The LightSheer Diode Laser System was designed from the ground up for laser hair removal, so it has the wavelength, fluence, pulse width, and active epidermal cooling system-the ChillTip(TM)-ideally suited for laser hair removal. The system is small, compact, and (in some models) portable, so it fits well into virtually every type of existing practices.  The solid state construction makes it durable; the state-of-the-art user interface makes it easy to use.  Finally, Lumenis(TM) has been in the business of making medical and cosmetic lasers for more than 30 years, so we've been able to develop unparalleled service and support-from our extensive training and practice building resources to our stand-alone systems' 24-hour replacement service. No other hair removal system offers the same combination of product excellence and customer service and support.

Q:  Why should I use the LightSheer Diode Laser System rather than the method I have been using for years?
A:  The LightSheer Diode Laser System's design provides for enhanced comfort during treatment, minimal risk of infection, speed and accuracy. Since the system uses a patented contact-cooling handpiece, it minimizes skin irritation that other methods may create. Since the procedure is non-invasive (no needles to penetrate the skin), the risk of introducing bacteria into the body is greatly reduced. Because the system is fast, it allows for larger areas to be treated, considerably increasing the efficiency of the hair removal process, which allows more patients to be seen during a typical day.  Finally, the LightSheer Diode Laser is  a precise instrument that is adjusted to damage only the hair follicle while minimally affecting the surrounding skin.

Q:  Does the LightSheer work on tanned or different skin colors?
A:  The LightSheer Diode Laser System safely and effectively treats all skin types, (Fitzgerald Skin Types I-VI), as well as tanned skin.  For darker skin types and people with tanned skin, appropriate fluencies are generally lower and appropriate pulse widths are generated to prevent damage to the epidermis.  Using the appropriate treatment parameters, however, people with all skin types can benefit from laser hair removal with the LightSheer.
