Laser Hair Removal
Not all hair removal lasers work equally well. Medical-grade differs greatly from spa and aesthetic grade and not all technology is suitable for every person. Having a basic understanding of how laser hair removal works and what to expect will save you money, time and possibly disappointment. Depending on the thickness of the hair, the colour of the hair, the depth of the follicles, and how much natural pigment is in your skin, we chose the device that will work best for you.
The following is taken from the Lightsheer Duet website and provides information about the laser hair removal machine we have at Dermal Skin Laser Centre:
We believe the Lightsheer Duet is the best choice for laser hair removal. That’s why we invested in one.
One of the most frequently asked questions is whether laser hair removal is permanent. The FDA has given the Lightsheer® approval for permanency.
In layman’s terms:
Both electrolysis and the LightSheer® offer permanent hair removal, or more correctly, permanent hair reduction.
Hair follicles go through cycles of growth, decay, and rest. Only hair in the active growth phase can be treated.
During any treatment (laser or electrolysis) session, a number of follicles are destroyed permanently. But the hair in rest phase, and hence not visible at the time of the session, are not destroyed. These will start to grow at the end of their rest phase.
The net result is that the number of hairs in the treatment area has been reduced and the reduction is permanent.
Subsequent treatments will reduce the remaining hair in the area even further. The number of treatment sessions required to remove all unwanted hair in an area varies from person to person.
Lightsheer® DUET™ is reputed as the best-in-class laser hair removal device, and consequently, offers the best results of epilation. Lightsheer DUET hair removal is permanent, safe and practically painless. It is a non-invasive technique, which does not damage skin. Lightsheer Duet is a revolutionary and reliable device, guaranteeing effectiveness and desired results. It saves client’s pain, unpleasant and time-consuming recovery and it completely solves the problem of unwanted body hair. LightSheer Duet system is equipped with two heads emitting diode laser light with a wavelength of 800 nm, which enables high-speed and safe treatment, also in patients with dark complexion and tanned skin.
Why LightSheer Duet Laser? Benefits for patients:
There are at least a few systems for hair removal available on the market, and they largely differ in effectiveness. We offer our client’s a top level service. Our priorities while choosing the right laser were the following:
comfort for the client
short time of a single session
relatively small number of treatments to achieve satisfying results
Diode laser Lightsheer Duet is the top level device for unwanted body hair removal. The company has existed since 1966 and is the worldwide leader in medical and cosmetic laser systems. Diode Laser System has a safety and quality certificate issued by the U.S. FDA (U.S. Department of the Food and Drug Administration), respected around the world.
The latest version of LightSheer - LightSheer Duet - consists of two hand pieces:
LightSheer ET treatment head - to maximise the treatment safety, the hand piece has a unique cooling system, the so-called ChillTip. It is integrated in the small head and in this way, the treatment is skin friendly, comfortable and protects the skin during the treatment, making the procedure less painful. All the time during the session, the temperature of the sapphire tip is maintained at 4°C. In this way, it is a much more efficient cooling, compared with the solutions applied in other devices for hair removal (air-cooling, gels, etc.)
LightSheer HS treatment head - entirely new, innovative technology, combining large spot size of 22x35 mm with vacuum pressure, which acts analgesically and increases penetration of the laser beam, deeply into the hair follicle. LightSheer HS reduces treatment time of leg hair removal from about 2 hours to about 30 minutes.
