The traditional methods of tweezing, shaving, waxing and chemical depilatories are temporary and sometimes painful. Increasingly, men and women of all ages are turning to a more effective solution. At Mirabile M.D. MedCosmetic, we are experts in the field of laser hair removal. We are proud to offer both the LightSheer and the
Lyra lasers. Your skin type will determine which laser is better for your specific needs. In most cases, 3-8 treatments are generally required in achieving 85-90% clearance of the hair. With any laser hair removal system, patients will sometimes require maintenance treatment's to maintain results. Sun avoidance as well as a daily application of sunscreen is crucial when going through a series of laser hair removal treatments. Although, laser hair removal can be performed all year long, the fall and winter months, when we are less likely to have direct sun exposure from outdoor activities, is an ideal time to begin a laser hair removal series. If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit tweezing, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment.
The Lumenis LightSheer Diode laser is the gold standard in laser hair removal. This state-of-the-art system is specifically designed to remove unwanted hair faster, with less discomfort, and greater effectiveness - and it permanently reduces your unwanted hair growth. The LightSheer works by emitting a near-infrared laser light that is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed, or turned on, for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle. The system's unique, patented contact-cooling apparatus, the ChillTip, helps to protect the skin by conductive cooling.
The Lyra is a 1064 YAG laser. Its state-of-the-art technology utilizes the longest available wavelength and an Extended Duration Pulse that provides optimal results with the least amount of patient discomfort and shortest recuperation time. It is a revolutionary treatment that is FDA approved for all skin types, offering the unique ability to treat tanned and darker pigmented skin.
