LaseRX Hair Removal
While the efficacy of laser hair removal technology has improved significantly since its inception, there are still major stumbling blocks that prevent patients from seeking laser treatment for hair removal, particularly for larger areas such as legs and backs. Concerns include excessive pain and extensive time spent in the treatment room. These patient concerns can also translate into headaches for treatment providers. The result is that many practitioners dislike providing, and many potential patients dread receiving, long and painful laser hair removal procedures.
“We are now able to perform a treatment on the back in 25 to 30 minutes instead of two hours, achieving the same efficacy that we did with the previous LightSheer device.”
To address these problems, Lumenis Ltd. unveiled the new High SpeedLightSheer® Duet™ earlier this year. As Lumenis CEO Dov Ofer explained, “Thedevelopment of this product is due in large part to the feedback we continuallyreceive from our customers all over the world. They asked us to provide a fastersolution for the effective treatment of larger body areas and the LightSheer Duetis our response. Furthermore, the LightSheer Duet offers a considerable reductionin time required per treatment and significantly improves patient comfort duringeach treatment.”
Utilizing two different handpieces, the LightSheer Duet enables efficacious treatmentson any part of the body. One handpiece utilizes the widely published andhighly regarded 9x9 mm LightSheer ET handpiece, which can be used to treatsmaller or bony areas, while the new high speed handpiece, LightSheer HS, isideal for treating larger areas. Featuring a 22x35 mm spot size, it is able to treatlarge areas such as the back and legs up to 75% faster than previous laser hairremoval platforms. The high speed handpiece also utilizes fully integrated vacuumassist technology which enables the system to more efficiently deliver energyto the treated area.
