Laser Hair Removal
Now you can be free of unwanted hair – once and for all. No more tweezing, shaving, waxing or chemical depilatories.
Rodgers Dermatology is proud to offer two cutting-edge lasers for laser hair removal: the LightSheer DUET and the LightSheer INFINITY. Not all lasers are created equal! They can vary in effectiveness, safety, and pain, making for wildly different experiences at different offices.
The LightSheer DUET works best on dark hair growing on light-colored skin, usually Fitzpatrick Skin Types I, II, and III. You can determine your skin type here.
The LightSheer INFINITY works features two gold-standard wavelengths: 805nm for lighter skin types (Fitz I-III), and 1060nm for darker skin types (Fitz IV-VI). Both the DUET and INFINITY focus laser energy through the skin to disable unwanted hair follicles. The LightSheer laser can safely remove hair from all parts of the body including cheeks, arms, legs, underarms, back, and the bikini area. Because of the ChillTip technology and vacuum-assist, no topical anesthesia is usually rquried, and treatment time is reduced by up to 75%. This safe, effective procedure can provide long-lasting or even permanent results with unsurpassed safety and comfort.
Laser hair removal typically provides 80% permanent hair reduction, +/- 20% re-growth that is finer, lighter, and thinner. Usually four to six treatments are needed over several months, but his can vary with skin type and hair density. Sun exposure and tanning should be avoided on treated areas.
