About Us

Laser Hair Removal

Dr. Lionel Bissoon is pleased to announce that Laser Hair Removal will be available at Mesotherapie&Estetik. Dr. Jeffrey H. Schorr is our laser hair removal specialist as well as specializing in Mesotherapy, Sclerotherapy and wrinkle fillers.

Imagine never having to shave again! Dr. Schorr uses the Lightsheer(TM) diode laser system to remove unwanted hair from any region of the body in both men and women. The LightSheer system was designed from the ground up for effective hair removal, providing unsurpassed safety and efficacy, reliability, and ease-of-use. Its advanced high-power diode technology delivers high fluence combined with a large spot size, user-selected pulse width, aggressive contact cooling and compression for high-performance unmatched by other high-tech hair removal systems. Both in rigorous scientific trials as well as extensive clinical practice, LightSheer system has emerged as the gold standard in laser hair removal.

This FDA approved permanent laser hair removal system is effective at removing unwanted hair from the face, neck, underarms, bikini area, chest, breasts, back, legs and other areas. It is a great alternative to shaving, waxing and electrolysis, none of which are permanent. The LightSheer Diode Laser System's design provides for enhanced comfort during treatment, minimal risk of infection, speed and accuracy. Since it is non-invasive (no needles to penetrate the skin), the risk of introducing bacteria into the skin is reduced. Because the system is fast, it allows for larger areas to be treated, considerably increasing the efficiency of the hair removal process.

Is Laser Hair Removal painful?
There is minimal discomfort during treatments however certain areas are more sensitive than others. A topical anesthetic is available for those who cannot tolerate the tingling or stinging sensation during treatment. Discomfort similar to a mild sunburn may be noted over the first 24 hours.

How many treatments are required?
The LightSheer laser works by disrupting hairs that are in the active phase of growth at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter the growth phase at different times, additional treatments will be necessary to disable all hair follicles in a given area. Treatments are usually given at intervals of approximately 4-6 weeks, or whenever new hair growth is first noticed. Many patients are completely satisfied with their results after only a couple of treatments, while others will need four or five treatments for maximum removal of all hair. Treatment times vary from a few minutes for areas such as the chin and neck to a few hours for extensive areas of the legs, back and chest.


What happens after treatment?
Within several minutes, the treated area may become pink and a little puffy. This reaction subsides quickly and within a day or so the areas return to normal. However, you should not plan any important social engagements during the first several days after your treatment, especially if the treated areas are on the face.
Around 3-10 days after treatment you may experience what seems to be hairs re-growing. Most of these hairs, however, are dead, treated hairs that are being shed and are not regrowing. In between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hairs because this decreases the ability of the laser to destroy actively growing hairs.

Who is a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
The Laser beam finds the hair follicles by targeting the substance that gives skin and hair dark color - melanin.  Therefore, the ideal candidate for laser has dark hair and light to medium skintone.  The laser will not work on people with red, white, gray or true blond hair.  The laser light will also be attracted to the melanin in the skin, so people with suntans, or dark skin types are at more of a risk for discoloration of pigment and other side effects.

How much does it cost?
During your initial consultation the areas to be treated will be determined and a fee quote per treatment session will be given to you. The fee for re-treatment sessions at one to two month intervals may be the same or less than the initial treatment depending on the extent of follow-up treatment needed.

Our goal is to provide safe, effective and affordable laser treatments for patients wishing to avail themselves of this service. Please note that just because a spa may offer laser hair removal does make the staff qualified. Patients should always seek treatments by a medical doctor.
