I’m a man with a hairy back who would like the hair removed. I do not want to wax it for one main reason: waxing hurts. When I started researching lasers, I became confused. Can you tell me what my best option is?

Question:

I’m a man with a hairy back who would like the hair removed. I do not want to wax it for one main reason: waxing hurts. When I started researching lasers, I became confused. Can you tell me what my best option is?

Answer:

In considering laser technology, the “gold standard” in hair removal is the Lightsheer Duet system, which eliminates many of the drawbacks associated with older laser hair removal procedures. Lightsheer provides permanent hair reduction using state-of-the-art, high-power diode technology. Rapid and non-invasive, there is no pain, no downtime, and no messy gels. Treatment of the entire back takes just 10 to 15 minutes.

The device targets the pigment in the hair at the base of the follicle, better distinguishing between individual hairs and surrounding skin and thereby reducing risk. What’s more, it can be used for all skin types, even tanned skin, and for the broadest possible range of hair colour, diameter, and depth. LightSheer treatment is safe, but as with all medical treatments, it should always be undertaken with proper medical supervision.
