Getting out of a hairy situation: How laser hair removal can help


Most women take pride in long, full hair that commands attention - as long as it's on their heads. As for visible hair anywhere else on her body - face, arms, legs and elsewhere - a woman is likely to seek out ways to remove it, as painlessly and effectively as possible.

There's a whole industry built around ways to rid a body of excess hair, the most common among them being shaving, waxing, plucking, electrolysis and creams. These methods are all temporary and some are even painfully or messy.

An alternative, practically permanent, hair removal solution is laser hair removal by a qualified, experienced technician.

While there are numerous different types of lasers out there, one of the best on the market - and available for purchase only by a licensed doctor - is the High Speed LightSheer DUET system. It 's a state-of-the-art diode laser system with vacuum-assisted technology that removes unwanted hair much more comfortably than most other methods.

One of the biggest pluses with this system, according to the Brampton Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa, which uses the High Speed LightSheer DUET with its clients, is  that it produces a larger beam of concentrated light then other lasers. That means the process can treat more hair follicles at the same time, resulting in a quicker treatment and fewer return visits.

The other plus is that it must be used with a doctor on site, which ensures that clients are in good hands at all times.

"Lasers can be very tricky to use and different skin types may require specialized treatments, so it's important to have a doctor on site", said Dr. Robert Sleightholm, a board certified plastic surgeon and director of the Brampton Clinic. "We've heard of people having laser treatments done in the basements of houses, which is do dangerous. We see burns and scars all the tome from that."
