LightSheer® DUET™ – Permanent Hair Reduction
There is a better solution for removing unwanted hair.
You may be surprised to learn that virtually your entire body is covered with hair. Because most of this hair is fine and pale, it usually isn’t visible to the naked eye. But, when darker, coarser hair appears in places which make you uncomfortable, it may be time to consider hair removal with LightSheer DUET.
Understanding Hair Removal.
In the past, remedies for unwanted hair included plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis or chemical depilatories. Some are painful. Some are messy, and all are only temporary.
Laser hair removal is a more effective solution. The High Speed LightSheer DUET uses state-of-the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology to remove unwanted hair and with greater speed and comfort than other methods.
About the LightSheer DUET laser treatment.
The High Speed LightSheer DUET is a laser that produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow. And with the large spot size, the process treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional laser hair removal alternatives.
The LightSheer DUET offers your physician two handpiece choices depending on your needs. The LightSheer High Speed handpiece uses breakthrough vacuum assisted technology in combination with diode laser light to allow rapid and comfortable treatment of large areas. A back or legs can now be treated in 15 to 20 minutes, without the need for topical numbing creams. The LightSheer DUET also offers your physician the gold standard LightSheer ET™ handpiece with ChillTip® cooling for smaller areas. The LightSheer DUET allows your physician to truly customize treatment for your hair type, skin type and lifestyle.
How Does it Work?
LightSheer® laser system
The LightSheer® uses a state-of-the-art 805nm diode laser, which ensures safety for all skin types. Repeated laser pulses target existing hair, creating a direction of energy into the hair follicles that prevent future growth. The LightSheer® allows us to truly customize treatment for your hair type, skin type and lifestyle by utilizing 2 different handpieces and technologies.
The High-Speed Integrated Technology (HIT™) incorporates suction to elevate and stretch the skin. In doing so, the laser achieves maximum absorption into hair follicles and fast coverage of large areas, which minimize the sensation of heat.
The ChillTip™ technology uses a proprietary cooling system to momentarily numb the skin to minimize pain, while compressing the handpiece to the skin to rotate the follicle and enable better results.
What Should I Expect?
When will I see results?
Multiple treatments are required to achieve permanent hair reduction. This is due to the increased effect of the laser on hair in the early growth stage (anagen). Not all the hairs are in the same phase at a given time.
What can I expect after treatment?
The appearance of the treated area following treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on the characteristics of the patient and treatment given.
During the treatment, some hairs will shed from the follicle immediately, while the remaining will shed in the following weeks. Transient redness and swelling around the hair follicle may appear immediately after the treatment, but are in fact, positive results indicating the follicle’s response to the treatment.
Following the treatment, you will be provided with guidelines, namely in terms of sun exposure.
