LightSheer® DUET Laser Hair Removal

The Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center
5 LightSheer DUET Treatments Mountain View - 5 Star Ratings
" Dr Menkes is very personable and compassionate. He takes his time to thoroughly examine you and listen to your symptoms for diagnosis and treatment. Very friendly and efficient technicians, assistants and front desk staff too! "

The LightSheer DUET Laser Hair Removal system is the most advanced hair removal technology available today. It is specifically engineered to effectively remove unwanted hair faster, more reliably, and is 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 demonstrated this capacity in a multi-center clinical study conducted at leading research institute.

How it works

LightSheer DUET works by stretching and thinning the skin, and bringing the hair follicle up close to the laser light. Once the laser light is applied, the skin is released from the vacuum, leaving the hair follicle damaged.

What to expect

Comfort and speed are the greatest patient advantages of LightSheer DUET. With this new laser technology, treatments can be performed faster and covering a larger skin surface per laser pass. A full back treatment or full leg treatment can be completed in as little as 20 minutes as compared to 1 hour with previous laser systems. The virtually pain free experience is also a large advantage. 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.
