LightSheer DUET Laser Hair Removal

The LightSheer® DUET™ hair removal system is the most advanced hair removal technology available today and it is specially engineered to effectively remove unwanted hair faster, more reliably, and virtually pain-free compared to traditional methods such as electrolysis, shaving, waxing or tweezing. It is the first diode laser cleared for permanent hair reduction. Permanent hair reduction is the long-term stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing after a treatment regime. The LightSheer DUET demonstrates this capacity in a multi-center clinical study conducted at leading research institutes.

The greatest patient advantages of LightSheer® DUET™ treatments are speed and discomfort. With this new laser technology, treatments can be performed quicker, covering a larger skin surface per laser pass. A full back treatment or a full leg treatment can be completed in as little as 20 minutes versus 1 hour with previous laser systems. The virtually pain-free experience is also a large advantage. The high speed handpiece has a gentle vacuum that pulls the skin into a chamber to receive the laser light treatment. This stretching of the skin results in less pain for the patient. In fact, there is no need for topical anesthetics.

Common body areas treated with the LightSheer® DUET™:

  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Bikini
  • Arms

Benefits of LightSheer® DUET™:

  • Fast treatment sessions, usually 15-20 minutes for full back or legs
  • Virtually pain-free, minimal discomfort
  • No treatment gels or topical anesthetics
  • Accurate hair removal
  • Can treat all skin types and hair colors, as well as tanned skin
When receiving a LightSheer® DUET™ treatment, expect to feel comfortable and relaxed. The high speed handpiece will gently suck or stretch your skin into its chamber to receive the laser light treatment. This suction is very subtle and does not hurt. The laser light has a warm feeling with minimal discomfort.

Your session length will depend on your treatment area. Larger areas, such as a full back, chest or legs can take up to 20 minutes. In general, lighter skin will require 4 to 6 treatments and darker skin will require 6 or more treatments.
