Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment

At Bonakdar Institute in Newport Beach, laser hair removal is performed with the Lumenis® LightSheer DUET – an advanced laser system that makes hair removal fast, reliable, and comfortable. These benefits are possible because of LightSheer's advanced technology.

Treatment with LightSheer DUET is faster because the new treatment tip is 10 times larger than before. This means that areas of the body can be treated 75% more quickly. In fact, treatments are so brief that most patients choose to treat multiple areas on each visit.


Knowing What to Expect

No anesthesia is required prior to laser hair removal with LightSheer DUET (although it is available). Treatments are tolerable because the new, vacuum-assisted tip brings the hair follicle closer to the laser so that a lower energy level is needed. The vacuum also alters skin sensation, essentially "fooling" the senses and enhancing patient comfort.

During the procedure, the laser produces a beam of highly concentrated light, which is absorbed by the pigment in hair follicles. The pigment is vaporized, disabling the follicles and eliminating hair growth. Areas that can be treated with laser hair removal include:

  • Face
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Bikini area
  • Legs
  • Ears
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Shoulders

Because hair growth is cyclical and laser hair removal is most effective during the active growth phase, 2 – 5 treatments are generally required to achieve permanent hair reduction. Immediately after treatment, the treated area may temporarily appear pink or red and, possibly, slightly swollen. However, most of people are able to return to their usual routine right away. Lasers are also used for skin resurfacing and skin lifting and tightening.
