Laser hair removal works by targeting the melanin in the hair follicles with heat to curtail growth. Lightsheer DUET technology offers customizable settings to make it effective and efficient on all hair colors, textures, and skin types. Traditional laser hair removal treatments have been most successful on people with dark hair and fairer skin, but the Lumenis LightSheer DUET safely provides advanced hair removal for a range of hair types and skin colors with state of the art adjustments to the laser’s key components:

  • Wavelength
  • Pulse duration
  • Spot size

As anyone who has undergone any form of hair removal knows, the procedure (and aftermath) can be quite uncomfortable and downright painful in many cases. Luckily, LightSheer DUET’s advanced design allows for greater efficiency in targeting the hair follicle with pain reduction for overall comfort and satisfaction.

Laser treatments can remove hair from larger surface areas on the body, but several treatments are necessary to be effective. The melanin in the hair follicles is targeted during the growth phase. There are several stages of hair growth, and because all hair may not grow uniformly, and be in different stages of growth at the time of treatment, most people require at least five laser treatments spaced four to five weeks apart to achieve the best hair removal results. has tested the effectiveness of LightSheer DUET.
