Light Sheer ET:
Our Light Sheer ET has a penetration depth of 800 nanometers. It is an ideal depth for laser hair removal. It treats safely when your skin has been out of the sun for a month minimum. It works on all skin types and hair types. This system works best on the coarser and medium hairs. It has a smaller treatment area so works well with smaller or harder to reach areas.
Light Sheer Duet:
The Light Sheer Duet is the same basic system as the ET with only smaller, yet very significant differences. It is the updated version of the ET. The Light Sheer Duet has a larger treatment area so is much quicker than the ET. It has a vacuum assisted system pulling the target closer to the surface of the skin. Therefore using less energy and essentially making the treatments more comfortable.
BBL Hair Removal (Also referred to as IPL)
Hair removal with BBL is another method of reducing and eliminating unwanted hair. This treatment uses the science of light to significantly reduce hair by targeting and injuring hair follicles without harming the surrounding skin.
How it works
BBL is short for Broad Band Light. It is a treatment that removes hair through a process called photoepilation. This is based on the principle of selective photothermolysis. This means that the light energy is absorbed in the target hair follicles while sparing the surrounding, healthy tissue. While it is still a light source, BBL works differently than conventional laser systems. Instead, BBL systems use a broad light spectrum of light with wavelengths ranging from 590 to 1200 nm (green, yellow, orange, red and infrared). The wavelengths emit light energy in carefully timed pulses to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment. At the same time decreases the risk of skin damage and minimize pain.
During the treatment, a gel is applied to the treatment area in order to focus the light energy and cool the top skin layer. A handheld device is then placed on the skin and the treatment begins. The light energy heats and damages the hair follicle, typically causing follicle to stop functioning. BBL technology allows your technician to provide a procedure that is gentle and non-invasive.
BBL systems can also be customized to your specific skin color, hair color and hair density. It can be used on a wide range of hair colors, from light brown to dark black hair. It also removes hair from all skin types. Complexions from porcelain white through olive to dark brown. Hair on most parts of the body can be treated, no matter how deep the follicles reside. Sensitive areas like the lips, ears, nose, underarms, and bikini line can usually be easily tolerated.
BBL can also treat very large areas at one time. Approximately 100 to 200 hairs can be treated with each flash of the light. Larger patches of hair on the legs, back and chest can be treated quickly in a single session. It can also be used for small delicate areas as well. Because of the length of time associated with other hair removal treatments, BBL may be a fast way to achieve a hair-free look.
As with other laser procedures, multiple treatment sessions are typically required for long-lasting hair removal.
Other than keeping the treated area protected from sunlight for a few weeks, you can return to your full, normal routines immediately. Slight redness similar to a mild sunburn may occur. This usually disappears over a few days.
When using BBL for laser hair removal it is very important to be out of the sun for a minimum of 1 month. During the summer months when being exposed to sunshine, our 1064 NdYag would be the appropriate choice of systems to be used.
Sciton Profile utilizes not one but two Long Pulse 1064 nm lasers for laser hair removal. Combined with the Large Area Scanner, treatment times can be up to six times faster on darker skinned clients than other systems. This is especially beneficial on large tedious areas such as backs and legs. The treatment chill plate on the Sciton ranges up to 3.1cm by 3.1cm with a small spot size of 5mm. This is important when treating fine hairs. You need to have a combination of high energy and quick exit from the hair shaft to reduce the risk of burning the skin. This can only be done utilizing a small spot size.
Light Sheer Duet:
This updated version of the ET has a larger treatment area so is much quicker than the ET. It has a vacuum assisted system pulling the target closer to the surface of the skin, therefore using less energy and essentially making the treatments more comfortable.
BBL can also treat very large areas at one time. Due to its larger spot size, thousands of hairs can be treated with each flash of the light. Larger patches of hair on the legs, back and chest can be treated quickly in a single session.
As the laser penetrates deep into the hair shaft, it heats up the follicle long enough to stop it from functioning and prevents regrowth.
There are 3 phases of hair growth and permanent hair loss is only truly successful in the first phase. Because only a percentage of hair at any given time is in the first phase of hair growth, multiple treatments are required.
The beauty of laser hair removal is even though it is a process, the remaining hairs after each treatment become finer, softer and grow much slower. It is not uncommon that you may hardly need to shave in between your treatments.
Because we have 4 different systems for laser hair removal, we can safely and effectively treat every area of the body. One exception is shaping eyebrows. Most common areas we treat are: Face, Neck, Chest, Abdominals, Back, Balls-n-All, Brazilian, Legs, Arms, Buttocks and Underarms.
Laser Hair Removal permanently reduces on average between 70% up to 95%. The remaining % are dormant hairs that may begin to grow with hormonal changes, stress, changes in diet, weather and emotional disorders.
Permanent hair removal requires on average anywhere from 5 to 12 treatments per area. This may vary due to skin type, hair color and hair thickness.

Urban Body Laser specializes in a permanent laser hair removal treatment for men called Balls-n-All™. It removes all hair on a male’s private parts. This includes the shaft and base of the penis, the testicles, the area between the anus and the testicles, as well as the area between the bum cheeks.
Many people are not aware of it, but it is quite common for men to have hair grow on their shaft and that can be awkward during sexual penetration or oral sex. Excess hair can also affect visual appearance, personal hygiene and self-esteem.
Laser Hair Removal Balls-n-All™ treatment packages range from just having the shaft and testicles treated to extensive hair removal throughout the entire area. If you prefer that we thin out and soften the hair but not remove it completely, we do that too. At Urban Body Laser the choice is yours.
How Laser Hair Removal works
The laser targets the pigment melanin. This is what gives hair its color. Dark hair has more melanin and responds best to laser hair removal treatments. The lighter the hair, the more difficult it is to remove. Bleached blonde and white hair has no melanin and is impossible to remove. Grey hair sometimes has enough melanin near the root to be treated effectively.
As the laser penetrates deep into the hair shaft, it heats the follicle long enough to stop it functioning and prevent regrowth. There are 3 stages of hair growth. Given that laser hair removal only works in the first phase, multiple treatments are required to achieve a higher percentage of hair removal.
The hair that does return in between treatments is softer and finer. Basically as soon as the process starts, you will no longer have any hard, rough stubbles to contend with.
The cost, duration of treatment, and number of treatments for laser hair removal will depend on the extent of the surface area being treated. In general, treatments range from 5 to 30 minutes in length. An average of 5-12 treatments are required. The cost is customized based on surface area.
Why Do Laser Hair Removal?
- Get rid of stubbly hair caused by shaving
- Look better and bigger
- Feel smooth to the touch
- Stay cleaner and fresher
- Enhance the sexual experience
- Clear the area for tattoos and jewelry
Common Fears about Laser Hair Removal?
One of the biggest concerns among men is the fear of getting an erection during treatment. While some men do get an erection, it has nothing to do with sexual arousal. It is simply a physiological response, as the heat of the laser increases blood flow to the area.
Rest assured that our technicians do not touch your private parts. Men are required to hold and adjust their own shaft and testicles during treatment.
