LightSheer Duet laser hair removal
While the efficacy of laser hair removal technology has improved significantly since its inception, there have been major stumbling blocks that prevent patients from seeking laser treatment for hair removal, particularly for larger areas such as legs and backs. Concerns include excessive pain and extensive time spent in the treatment room – and the associated costs of long treatments.
These problems have been addressed with the new high speed LightSheer® Duet™. As Lumenis CEO Dov Ofer explains: “The development of this product is due in large part to the feedback we continually receive from our customers all over the world. They asked us to provide a faster solution for the effective treatment of larger body areas and the LightSheer Duet is our response. The LightSheer Duet offers a considerable reduction in time required per treatment and significantly improves patient comfort during each treatment.”
Utilizing two different handpieces, the LightSheer Duet enables efficacious treatments on any part of the body. One handpiece utilises the widely published and highly regarded 9×9 mm LightSheer ET handpiece, which can be used to treat smaller or bony areas, while the new high speed handpiece, LightSheer HS, with vacuum-assist, is ideal for treating larger areas fast, efficiently and painlessly.
Featuring a large 22×35 mm spot size, it is able to treat large areas such as the back and legs significantly faster than previous laser hair removal platforms. The high-speed handpiece also utilises fully integrated vacuum-assist technology which enables the system to more efficiently deliver energy to the treated area.
What are the major advantages of the LightSheer Duet, as compared to other removal devices?
The laser emits a beam of light that passes through the skin, to the hair follicle. The energy is then transformed into heat, which destroys the follicle. The scientific principle called thermo kinetic selectivity (TKS) makes this method of hair removal particularly effective.
Why is TKS important?
- speed of treatment
- lower cost due to faster treatment times
- more comfort for the client
- used on a large variety of body parts
- less messy as no gels or numbing creams required
“It’s the ONLY laser hair removal technology that does not require topical anaesthetics” – Michael P. Goldman, MD
“All of our patients have appreciated the shorter treatment time, especially the men. They appreciate being in and out of the office in twenty minutes and they appreciate the increased comfort.” – Beth Haney, FNP-C
Men, in particular love the LightSheer Duet because:
- Instead of being out of the office for hours using other technology, they are in and out in approximately 30 minutes.
- The LightSheer Duet offers increased comfort compared with other lasers and waxing.
