Why laser hair removal?

Some people find their unwanted hair so embarrassing and inconvenient that it compromises their happiness. For a long time, shaving and waxing were the most effective methods for treating unwanted hair. Thankfully, due to technological advancements, laser hair removal offers a powerful alternative. By exploring the pros and cons of these methods below, it becomes obvious that laser hair removal is a cost-effective, efficient, painless, and more viable solution.*

Shaving:

Pros:Inexpensive, painless, quick and easy.
Cons: Regrowth begins quickly, and since hair is cut off at the surface, regrowing hair is blunt, not tapered, so it may appear thicker. Razor burn, nicks and cuts can occur. Regular shavers can also be prone to ingrown hairs.

 

Waxing:

Pros: Temporarily removes hair at the root for an average of around three weeks of smooth skin (two to six weeks depending on your hair type & thickness).
Cons: It can also be messy, difficult to get consistent results, and needs some regrowth in order to be effective, as the wax needs at least 1/4-inch of stubble to adhere to. Treatments may be moderately painful, as hair is being ripped out from the root, but it may become more tolerable over time. Like shaving, waxing can also lead to ingrown hairs.

Laser Hair Removal:

Laser hair removal is a revolutionary and state-of-the-art method in treating unwanted hair for longer and even sometimes indefinite periods of time. It is the only proven method available for easily treating hair from large areas of the body including the back, chest, legs and face. Laser hair removal is precise, fast and cost-effective (you can check the price comparison in Total Beauty. Please  note that the average cost per laser session in this study is significantly more than our average cost per treatment. At Plush Derma, your costs over the years will be substantially lower). Since hair grows back more slowly, laser hair removal also saves you a significant amount of time over the years — precious time that you can enjoy with your friends and family. Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser — an intense, pulsating beam of light — to treat unwanted hair.*

Why LightSheer?

When body hair is excessive, darker or coarser than you would prefer, or appears in places that make you feel uncomfortable, it’s time to reconsider your hair treatment options. Older remedies for unwanted hair include plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis or chemical depilatories. Some of these are downright painful, others are extremely messy, and all offer only temporary solutions to your frustration.*

A Very Popular Choice – More Effective & Long Lasting

Laser hair removal is considered a far more effective solution for unwanted hair with longer lasting results, and has gained in popularity.*

Patient Testimonials*

Quicker, More Comfortable than Waxing

“I’ve had waxing done before…and compared to this procedure the waxing was extremely painful and it took a lot longer… the laser treatment, like I said it’s 10 minutes, just a slight vacuum and a little sting…and then that’s it.” -Mark*

Good Results, Considering Additional Areas

“The results I’ve seen…I’m shaving a lot less…there is a lot less hair growing back…[and] because I did have such good results…I probably want to do it on my legs, and my bikini area.” -Nicole*

Great Results, Highly Recommend to Others

“…I absolutely love it…it’s not painful, it’s very quick, the hair goes away fast…This is probably the perfect treatment for you. It’s really worked great for me so far.”     -Ryan*

Clinician Testimonials

Much Faster & More Comfortable

“…with the older systems…man’s back…would take anywhere from an hour to two hours…typically feel a significant amount of discomfort. Whereas [with] the Lumenis LightSheer Duet…High Speed handpiece is very quick…[man’s back] in 15 minutes…with minimal discomfort.”*

Large Areas Treated in 15 Minutes

“I had my back treated with the New High Speed LightSheer in 15 minutes. Normally this would take about an hour to do, so the time savings alone is significant.”*

Patients & Clinicians Will Prefer High Speed LightSheer

“Patients will love it. Nurses will too. I recently treated a large gentleman’s back and in the 20 minutes it took to treat him, he was practically falling asleep – the treatment was that comfortable.”*

No Topicals, Shorter Treatments, More Affordable

“Not having to apply a topical anesthetic is a huge advantage…neither the patient nor the practice has to incur that cost…no treatment gel is used with the high speed handpiece…shorter treatment times, we don’t have to charge as much…able to reduce our prices by 50%.”*
