We are proud to offer the latest technology in laser hair removal. Nothing else compares! New Lightsheer Duet hair removal laser is available in our clinic, first in Chicago. It is a revolution. It replaces our previous gold standard in laser hair removal – Lightsheer laser that we used for the past few years. New Duet laser, with vacuum technology & larger head size has several advantages – no messy prep with gel, no need for topical anesthetic and much faster treatment time. This is especially important for large areas such as backs (Men! – they have no patience!) . But most important is improvement in pain – virtually none! Our patients love it. For the ones that were tired of the painful treatments this is a savior! They are signing up for the new parts of the body without hesitance. So far in Chicago we are the only clinic to offer this breakthrough technology! Remeber, there are a lot of choices in laser hair removal, they pop up on every corner. The difference is superior technology and great professional service. You decide!
Unwanted hair can be removed effortlessly and without discomfort. A non-invasive laser light source is used to remove unwanted hair from anywhere on the body.
How does the LightSheer Diode Laser System work?
The system emits near-infrared laser light that is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed, or turned on, for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle, while the system’s unique, patented contact-cooling handpiece, the ChillTip, helps protect the skin by conductive cooling during the laser energy delivery.
Why should I use the LightSheer Diode Laser System rather than the methods I’ve been using for years?
The LightSheer Diode Laser System’s design provides for enhanced comfort during treatment, minimal risk of infection, speed and accuracy. Since the system uses a unique cooling handpiece, it minimizes skin irritation that other methods may create. Since it is non-invasive (no needles to penetrate the skin), the risk of introducing bacteria into the skin is reduced. Because the system is fast, it allows for larger areas to be treated, considerably increasing the efficiency of the hair removal process, which allows more patients to be treated during a typical day. Finally, the LightSheer Diode Laser is a precise instrument that can be adjusted to damage only the hair follicle while minimally affecting the surrounding skin.
Does the LightSheer work on tanned or different skin colors?
The LightSheer diode laser system safely and effectively treats all skin types as well as tanned skin. For darker skin types and people with tans, appropriate amounts of energy are generally lower and appropriate pulse widths are generally longer to prevent damage to the skin. Using the appropriate treatment parameters, however, people with all skin types can benefit from laser hair removal with the LightSheer.
Are the Results Permanent?
The LightSheer laser has been cleared by the FDA for hair removal and permanent hair reduction on all skin types and tanned skin. To achieve a satisfactory level of clearance, 5-7 treatments are typically required.
