Imagine a life free of unwanted hair.
Say goodbye to shaving and waxing….
Laser hair removal is not cheap – depending on the extent of the surface area you want to be treated, you may have to spend up to several hundred pounds. However, compared to the cost of waxing or shaving over the years, you would be making an effective and substantial saving overall.
Our practice is pleased to offer the High-Speed LightSheer DUET for permanent hair reduction with exciting speed and amazing comfort.
You may be surprised to learn that virtually your entire body is covered with hair. Because most of this hair is fine and pale, it usually isn’t visible to the naked eye.

Frequently Asked Questions
In the past, remedies for unwanted hair included plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis or chemical depilatories. Some are painful. Some are messy, and all are only temporary.
Laser hair removal is a more effective solution.
The High Speed LightSheer® DUET uses state-of-the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology to remove unwanted hair and with greater speed and comfort than other methods.
The High Speed LightSheer® DUETTM is a laser that produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow. And with the large spot size, the process treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional laser hair removal alternatives.
Vacuum-assist technology and the large spot size make hair removal fast and comfortable, without the need for topical anesthetics and gels.
The LightSheer® DUET offers your physician two handpiece choices depending on your needs. The LightSheer® High Speed handpiece uses breakthrough vacuum assisted technology in combination with diode laser light to allow rapid and comfortable treatment of large areas. A back or legs can now be treated in 15 to 20 minutes, without the need for topical numbing creams.
The LightSheer® DUET also offers your physician the gold standard LightSheer ET handpiece with ChillTip® cooling for smaller areas. The LightSheer® DUET allows your practitioner to truly customize treatment for your hair type, skin type and lifestyle.

The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the procedure and the skin type. Side effects are rare and, if they do occur, are typically minor. They may include redness and swelling around the hair follicle, which are, in fact, positive clinical results and indicate that the follicle has responded to treatment. Most people return to normal activity right away.

Pseudofolliculitis Barbae (PFB)
PFB, or razor bumps, is a common condition in which the regrowing hair, after shaving, curves back towards and pierces the skin resulting in a pustule or papule.

The LightSheer Duet’s excellent safety profile for all skin types including the darkest skin, makes it a safe, effective and revolutionary alternative for the treatment of pseudofolliculitis barbae.
