The New LightSheer Duet Laser
The New LightSheer Duet Laser Main Benefits are: faster treatments, less pain and long lasting results. Most lasers use the same technology, and this technology has known downsides. If you plan a laser hair removal process you should expect:
- Longer sessions (Compared to IPL), due to a slow laser pulse repetition rate – a pulse every 2 seconds.
- Smaller spot size coverage which means a back treatment or leg treatment can take up to an hour.
- Laser emits high energy light which is rather painful (compared to IPL).
- Not every skin type (or hair color) is a right candidate for laser. Darker skin types and light hair colors can not be treated safely or effectively.
The new LightSheer Duet laser hair removal has some improvements that manage to overcome some of these downsides and allow a wider usage of the laser hair removal. A wider applicator, a faster laser repetition rate (1 pulse per second), a special suction at the applicator which reduces the pain felt by the user.
“Another benefit that makes the LightSheer Duet stand apart from other laser hair removal devices is firing time and energy spot size. The LightSheer Duet has a faster firing time – approximately once per second – so the energy pulses can be sent out faster, speeding up the procedure. The spot size of the energy pulses are also larger, treating larger areas in less time. According to Dr. Gilbert, most laser hair removal devices have an energy spot size roughly the size of the tip of his thumb. The Duet has a much larger energy spot size therefore drastically cutting down the time of the procedure from an hour and a half to 15-25 minutes to treat the chest or abdomen.
An ideal patient for laser hair removal is a patient with light skin and dark hair. However, the LightSheer Duet is capable of treating all skin types. Laser hair removal is not recommended for patients with lighter hair as the laser targets melanin in the hair and lighter hair has less melanin. “There isn’t a laser on the market today that will successfully treat light hair. When that laser flashes out, something has to absorb that light. If there isn’t a substantial amount of pigment in that hair, it’s just not going to work,” Dr. Gilbert described.
As discussed on The Doctors, a series of treatments are necessary to achieve the final results. Since laser hair removal treats hair follicles in the growth phase and only 20-25% of existing hair is in the growth phase at any given time, a series of 4-6 treatments are necessary to get permanent hair reduction. It is important that patients stay out of the sun immediately after treatment as hyper-pigmentation may occur.” Read more about Light Sheer Duet at American Health and Beauty.

The Autumn and winter time are the best seasons to undergo a laser hair removal treatment. The sun UVB short rays are at their lowest level and the skin can recover from the light energy it absorbs during the laser hair removal sessions. You must follow the safety recommendation here and those you will get from your laser participator, to reduce the risk for unwanted side effects of laser hair removal.
