Print This Page Email this Page

We offer laser hair removal at our Schererville office as an alternative to inconvenient and time-consuming ways to remove unwanted hair, such as shaving, tweezing, and waxing. Using the high-speed Lumenis LightSheer® laser platform, Dr. Gus Galante's aesthetic nurse Nikki can safely remove coarse, dark unwanted hair for women and men. Patients considering laser hair removal travel from Valparaiso, Merrillville, and Munster to our practice for their treatments.

Talking It Over

One of the common questions asked by patients considering laser hair removal treatments is whether the results are permanent. The heat from the laser energy greatly damages the hair follicles being targeted, significantly reducing future hair growth. The FDA approved the LightSheer laser for permanent hair reduction.

During your consultation, Dr. Galante describes the treatment plan needed for your goals and what's involved during the actual procedure.

Procedure Specifics

The advanced technology of the LightSheer helps patients remain comfortable during the procedure. Your skin is cooled both before and during the treatment as pulses from the powerful, state-of-the-art diode laser target and damage hair follicles without harming the surrounding tissue. We can customize the treatment based on your skin and hair type and the size of the area being treated.

The high-speed LightSheer Duet laser has a large pot size, which allows the process to treat numerous hair follicles at the same time, making the treatment much faster than traditional laser hair removal alternatives. While improvement is typically seen soon after beginning treatments, multiple sessions are needed to get optimal hair reduction.
