Laser Hair Reduction is suitable for both men and women. More than 70% of males and 85% of females now use laser hair reduction with a success rate of 85-99% permanent hair reduction after just 6 to 10 treatments.
Laser hair reduction works by targeting high laser energy through the skin to the hair follicle. The pigment in each hair follicle absorbs the laser light, this process gradually causes the hair follicles to become damaged so that the hair is unable to grow.
LightSheer® Duet state-of-the-art permanent hair reduction treatment offers unparalleled treatment speed and efficacy with optimal patient comfort.
The High-Speed Integrated Technology (HIT™) incorporates suction to gently draw skin into the handpiece, pulling the target (hair follicle) closer to the energy source. In doing so, the laser achieves maximum absorption into hair follicles and fast coverage of large areas.
The ChillTip™ technology uses cooling to momentarily numb the skin to minimize pain.
Most laser hair reduction devices on the market are only suitable for lighter skin types. While the best candidates for treatment are those with lighter skin and dark hair, the LightSheer® Duet technology now enables us to treat all skin types safely.
Multiple treatments are required to achieve permanent hair reduction. This is because for the treatment to be effective, the laser needs to target hair in the early growth stage (anagen). Not all the hairs are in the same phase at a given time.
Ideal candidates for LightSheer® Duet treatment will require an average of six treatments, six weeks apart to achieve their desired outcome.
