London, UK

Lightsheer, The Truth – London, UK It really works! I was promised 85-95% reduction after 6-8 treatments. Six years later I have next to nothing. A few thin hairs that are really slow to grow. My results have been best where the hair was thicker. A few tips… When the treatment worked for me, my skin was always very red after, the thicker hairs jumped out of the skin, I could smell burning hair. I saw amazing results Evan after the first treatment. They fell out about 3 weeks later. I tried IPL before the Lightsheer & saw little to no difference. If you don’t see the above reactions after the first treatment, walk away. The only reason I can think it might not work for some people is that the person doing it does not have the settings right. I saw a nurse in London Covent garden uk who was really experienced. Best money ever spent!

Laser with LightSheer Diode Laser – Glendale, CA I finally decided to get laser hair removal done after months of reading other reviews on this site. There were 3 main factors that impacted my decision: (1) type of laser machine, (2) the pain/effectiveness level, (3) the facility. After researching, I found that the diode type laser is safer, more effective, and yields better results in the long run. I visit their website several times and read all about their lasers. IN particular, the LightSheer Duet is the best in the industry. Next, the pain. I have a very low threshold for pain. I can’t stand it, don’t want it, try to avoid painful treatments at all costs. But I read that LightSheer is virtually pain-free. Now the facility. If I’m going to trust someone with my bikini area, I wanted to make sure I’m not going to some quack! I actually checked online and found a place that was near my work in Glendale. Plus, it was near my favorite shopping area (acrosse from the Cost Plus Worldmarket, and the Habit Burger, yum-o). This place was amazing. A real find for a laser place in Glendale. The floors were so pretty and clean. The coffee was a nice complement, and the staff was so nice and professional. They are busy – so make sure you make an appointment. I walked-in and was at least able to get the price list and an appointment. After three sessions (which was spaced out between 4 weeks intervals) I did notice a huge difference. After all the fuse and research I made over the laser hair removal treatment, I totally forgot I even had hair there! It seemed really natural for hair not be “down-there” – I really didn’t even notice that my hair thinned and eventually fell-out. The once that did grow back were super fine – I just shaved it off and they really haven’t grown back yet. I really would recommend any woman to get laser hair removal on her bikini – ladies, there’s no need to be hairy down there! If you do it, just make sure you choose a good facility – I think it makes a huge difference to feel calm and comfortable. Well worth it – I’d do it again.

Laser Hair Removal Works Wonders – Armpits and Bikini Area (Lumenis LightSheer Diode Laser) I am extremely pleased with my laser hair removal experience. I am hairless (just about) on my armpits and my bikini area is miraculously transformed. Previously I was very self-conscious of my underarms because the dark hairs even when shaved, still left a shadow. I had to shave every day if I wanted to be sleeveless. But I always get these red bumps from ingrown hair follicles that are irritated. So I shaved infrequently. The bikini area was always a mess for me to deal with. I strongly believe the hair removal success was due to the practioner’s experience with the intensity of the laser AND my ethnicity. In my case, I had a R.N. who performed the treatments, and she is simply superb. She can tolerate the awful smell of burning hairs—I say that even though it’s all my hairs that got zapped. The nurse tells me that Asians’ hairs respond very well to these lasers (I’m Asian). I had no burns and no scarring. Of course, it was uncomfortable even with the numbing cream. But I do have a high pain tolerance level. A note on the numbing cream: I have this strange delayed reaction to it, so after the actual treatment session, I get all numbed up in the area where the cream was applied for a few hours. Then it wears off. I’m just so glad that I did my research and got a reputable office that was not too costly. I was afrad at first of the pain, but if you’ve been through childbirthings and know the temporary pain of plucking hairs off, it shouldn’t be a big deal. I put $600 so far on the treatments, but it will be a few hundred dollars more when I get my bikini area fully under control.

Lightsheer Diode Laser Worked Like a Charm on Bikini, Underarms, and Face – Orange County, CA . Laser hair removal treatment is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. About two years ago I decided to stop waxing and try laser hair removal on my full bikini and underarms. I have brown hair and olive skin and was told that I could expect between a 10%-20% reduction with each treatment. It sounded reasonable so I decided to give it a go. After 4 treatments on my underarms and 6 on my bikini, I literally have a few thin hairs growing in. I am so excited to say the least! Waxing hurt like crazy and overall cost a lot more. My experience with Laser Hair Removal was virtually pain free and has really best the best thing ever! No more ingrown hairs from waxing or razor bumps. It has been life changing for me. After I saw the results from my bikini and underarms and knew that my skin tolerated the treatment well, I did my upper lip and the sides of my face. The results on my face have been great too. 🙂 Yay for laser!

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL SAFE?

BEST (ALMOST ENTIRELY) PAINLESS HAIR REMOVAL

For many, the promise of a permanently stubble-free bikini line simply isn’t worth the wrath of a laser that stings like a box jellyfish. That’s why the Rita Hazan hair salon introduced the Light Sheer Duet (from $150 for each of the recommended six to eight treatments). The laser’s vacuum-assisted technology reduces pain (the hand-piece feels like a suction against the skin, rather than a cauter) while increasing efficiency (it takes only one to five minutes, depending on the body part).

Help for patients with life-altering scars

Kim Phuc knows how scars and the traumatic experiences that cause them can haunt a person for a lifetime. But thanks to a dermatologist’s commitment to treat her scars, Phuc is not only recovering from her infamous wounds but also is helping others like her.

Many know Phuc from an iconic photograph, showing her and her brothers and cousins fleeing from a Napalm bombing in Trang Bang, June 1972. More than 40 years later, Phuc, the crying, naked child in the middle of the black and white image, still lives with scars that cover 65 percent of her body.

“For many years, my heart was full of hatred, and I wanted to give up. Now, I view my picture from that day as a gift, as it provides me with a larger purpose,” Phuc says. “Through my experiences, I have grown to view my journey as a true gift. I have the opportunity to spread my personal story with others to help inspire and assist other children who have been touched by war.”

Phuc started The Kim Foundation International for child war victims, and she was honorary speaker in March this year at the launch of the Restoring Heroes Foundation, a charity focused on providing America’s wounded warriors with access to world-class medical care for physical and emotional trauma. Lumenis helps support the Restoring Heroes Foundation with research and technology, according to Lumenis’s CEO Tzipi Ozer-Armon. And dermatologists, including Jill Waibel, M.D., of Miami, Fla., are providing what is often free care.
