Lightsheer Duet Laser Hair Removal

Effective Removal of Unwanted Hair With the LightSheerTM Duet High Speed Laser – Fast, Safe, Gentle

Lasers continue to revolutionise the field of aesthetic surgery, treating everything from deep wrinkles to disfiguring birthmarks, tattoos, age spots and facial and leg veins. Now specially engineered lasers are combating excess unwanted hair – effectively removing it much faster, more reliably and more comfortably than standard methods like electrolysis and electrothermolysis.

A giant step forward in hair removal technique

Of special interest is the LightSheer™ Duet Laser. This versatile laser was specially created to treat excess, unwanted dark hair on any skin tone or type and has been demonstrated by a number of independent scientific studies to be the most effective laser for this purpose (superior to intense pulse light devices).

The New LightSheer HS (High Speed handpiece) features a large 22x35 mm diode array that is designed for treating large areas such as legs, arms, chests, abdomen, shoulders and backs. LightSheer HS employs fully integrated vacuum assist technology to gently lift skin into the treatment aperture prior to applying laser energy. With this approach, the targeted tissue is gently stretched and thinned, minimizing competing chromophores by blanching vessels and spreading skin pigmentation over a larger area, in addition to pulling the hair follicle closer to the skin's surface. The cumulative result is that energy is delivered more efficiently to achieve excellent clinical results with speed and comfort. These combined features allow clinicians to treat large areas easily and quickly, leading to a significant reduction in treatment time.

Delicate enough for a woman´s fine, sensitive skin and robust enough for a man´s beard, back or arms

Lighsheer ™ treatment is fast, gentle and precise. Treatments that might span months or even years with electrolysis or electrothermolysis take a few short visits with the LightSheer ™ duet laser. The larger spot size of the Lightsheer Duet Laser System enables greater depth of penetration, for improved absorption of energy at the target follicle.

Here´s how it works 

The Lightsheer´s ™ laser beam targets the pigment located in hair follicles (pigment gives hair its colour). The laser pulses (emits its light) for only a fraction of a second, just long enough to vaporise the pigment, thus destroying or significantly impeding the hair´s ability to regrow, but not long enough to affect the surrounding skin. A unique, patented sapphire–tipped handpiece cools on contact, protecting the skin while directing the laser energy to the hair follicle.
