Shaving and waxing can be tedious, especially if you have thick, dark hair. At Park Avenue Dermatology, Dr. Bradley Glodny offers laser hair removal with the LightSheer Duet, a novel technology that blends efficacy with patient comfort.
About LightSheer Duet
LightSheer Duet is the latest hair removal device by Lumenis that combines optimal pulsing and power for maximum efficacy. Unlike other lasers that risk causing hypopigmentation of darker skin, it can be used effectively on all skin types It also offers a robust cooling technology that minimizes discomfort.
Light Sheer Duet Treatment
A hair removal treatment at Park Avenue Dermatology begins with a consultation in which Dr. Glodny assesses your skin type and which areas you want treated. This gives him an idea for the optimal treatment specifications to set the laser to as well as an approximation for the number of sessions needed to achieve complete removal.
The Light Sheer Duet laser can be used in multiple areas of the body, including:
- bikini area
- legs and arms
- back and chest
Dr. Glodny and/or his nurses run the laser over the area to be treated, working consistently to target the most hairs possible.
Light Sheer Duet Results
Because the laser targets hair follicles in a specific stage of growth, full hair removal requires multiple sessions, spaced 6-8 weeks apart. In between sessions, you will notice a decrease in the hair density.
After all treatments have been completed, occasional touch-ups may be required every few years to maintain permanent hair removal.
LightSheer Duo Side Effects & Recovery
There is virtually no down-time after a the LightSheer Duo treatment. As the skin is slightly more sensitive, it is best to avoid being out in the sun without protection and to avoid salt water for a few days to minimize irritation.
