Laser hair removal is more effective and safer than it has ever been before. The new technologies used in Lumenis® DESIRE permanent hair removal, for example, make treatment fast, easy and virtually painless with smooth, beautiful results.


What is Lumenis LightSheer® DESIRE?

LightSheer® is a permanent hair treatment based on clinically proven diode laser technology.


How does it work?

LightSheer® features two laser hair removal technologies:

  • The High-Speed Vacuum Assisted technology can treat large areas and requires no prep and no gel.
  • ChillTip™ Sapphire integrated cooling means treatment is safe and comfortable, even for smaller more delicate treatment areas.

During treatment, gentle suction draws skin into the handpiece, stretching the skin and bringing the follicles closer to the laser source. The energy of the laser targets the darker cells of the hair follicles. The follicle is damaged, preventing hair regrowth, and the skin is released. Lumenis® has been pioneering energy-based solutions for over 50 years, so you know you can be sure of the technology behind the LightSheer® DESIRE.


What Issues can Lumenis LightSheer® DESIRE Improve?

  • Hair removal and permanent hair reduction on legs, bikini line, armpits, back, upper lip or chin
  • Treatment for Pseudo Folliculitis Barbae, or razor bumps, caused by ingrown hairs
  • Treatment of vascular lesions, including angiomas, hemangiomas, telangiectasia, leg veins and other benign vascular lesions
  • Treatment of benign pigmented lesions

Who is a Good Candidate for Lumenis LightSheer® DESIRE Treatment?

You should not use LightSheer® if you have active infections or inflammations, active cold sores, open lacerations or abrasions in the treatment area or if you have a viral, fungal or bacterial disease. Risks of treatment are similar to those of other laser therapies but are rarely seen. These risks may include: change in skin pigmentation, changes to skin texture or burns. Your provider will do a full assessment of your skin and health before recommending LightSheer® treatment.


What Should I Expect During Lumenis® Sheer Desire Treatment?

During treatment, a laser energy targets and damages the hair follicle while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. The LightSheer® is customizable, allowing your treatment provider to create a personalized hair removal treatment for your skin type, hair type and goals. Because the high-speed integrated vacuum assisted technology has a greater delivery area than most other systems, even larger areas such as the back or legs can be treated in about 10 minutes.

There is no prep time and no anesthetics required. The high-speed integrated vacuum assisted technology also activates the skin’s tactile and pressure receptors to reduce pain during treatment. At the same time, ChillTip™ Technology improves comfort by cooling the skin before treatment and continuously cooling it throughout the treatment.


What Results can I Expect After Treatment?

Some hairs in the treatment area will shed from the follicle immediately. Remaining hairs will shed in the following weeks. Some people see temporary redness and swelling around the hair follicles immediately after the treatment. The redness indicates that the follicle has been successfully targeted by LightSheer®.

After treatment results will vary slightly depending on the unique characteristics of each patient and the area treated. Multiple treatments are required for permanent hair reduction because hair grows in cycles, and it will take multiple treatments to target every hair in its early growth stage. Use sun protection on treated areas. Your provider will give you information on your personal aftercare.
