What is Laser Hair Removal (LHR)?
Laser hair removal uses light based technology to reduce and eliminate unwanted hair growth. The alternatives to laser hair removal include shaving, waxing and electrolysis, which have their own unique upside and downside. LHR represents a major advancement in the aesthetic market and has significant advantages when compared to other forms of hair removal.

How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Hair growth occurs via a series of stages as shown in the accompanying diagram. Each hair follicle spends the majority of its life cycle in the active growth phase known as anagen. However, for approximately 6 to 8 weeks each hair follicle enters a phase of regression known as the catagen phase and then a dormant phase known as telogen. Approximately 10-15% of our hair is in the dormant phase at any given time. Laser hair reduction works by delivering a high energy laser beam to the hair follicle and damaging the growth center which is located at the base of the follicle. However, only the follicles in the active growth anagen phase are sensitive to the laser energy. During the 6 to 8 weeks of catagen and telogen the hair follicles will not be damaged by the laser light. Because of this a series of laser hair removal treatments are required, usually spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart in order to capture all the hair follicles.
The LightSheer Duet laser hair removal system
The LightSheer Duet laser hair removal system emits near-infrared light using a diode laser source. This laser light has a wavelength that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. In this way the LightSheer laser targets and selectively damages the bulb of the hair follicle. During hair removal treatment the laser is pulsed on and off very quickly. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle, while the system’s unique, patented contact-cooling hand piece, the ChillTip, helps protect the skin by conductive cooling during the laser energy delivery.
Here’s how the Lightsheer Duet works:
The High Speed LightSheer® Duet produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light.
The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles (melanin).
As the hair follicle heats up from the light, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged.
This significantly reduces the hair’s ability to re-grow, and results in permanent hair reduction over time.
The High Speed LightSheer® Duet produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles (melanin). During the hair removal procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As the hair follicle heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged. This significantly reduces the hair’s ability to re-grow, and results in permanent hair reduction over time.
What are the advantages of Laser Hair Removal compared with other forms of hair removal?
- • Permanent hair reduction; reduces excessive & unwanted body hair with speed & comfort.
- • Vacuum-assist technology significantly improves treatment comfort & time.
- • High Speed LightSheer ® Duet reduces treatment times up to 75% with little or no discomfort;
- • Eliminates the fear of procedure pain.
Are all Laser Hair Removal Systems the Same?
At Aesthetics by Design, we offer the best Denver laser hair removal with the LightSheer Diode Laser System. In response to the ever-increasing demand to remove unwanted hair on virtually any body area, the ability to offer superior results to the widest variety of patients is critical. The LightSheer Diode Laser System offers high powers and both short and very long (400 ms) pulses to safely and effectively treat all skin types including tanned skin and the broadest range of hair colors, diameters and depths.
High Speed LightSheer® Duet treatment option for hair removal is great news for both men and women, since backs and legs can now be treated comfortably in about 15-20 minutes, with no need for topical anesthetics or messy treatment gel.
What advantages does the LightSheer have over other laser hair removal systems?
The LightSheer Diode Laser System was designed from the ground up for laser hair removal, so it has the wavelength, fluence, pulse width, and active epidermal cooling system—the ChillTip ideally suited for laser hair removal. The system is small, compact, and (in some models) portable, so it fits well into virtually every type of existing practices. The system’s solid state construction makes it durable; it’s state-of-the-art user interface makes it easy to use. Finally, Lumenis has been in the business of making medical and cosmetic lasers for more than 30 years, so we’ve been able to develop unparalleled service and support—from our extensive training and practice building resources to our stand-alone systems’ 24-hour replacement service (not available everywhere in the world). No other hair removal system offers the same combination of product excellence and customer service and support.

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 hair removal 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 (Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-VI) as well as tanned skin. For darker skin types and people with tans, appropriate fluences are generally lower and appropriate pulse widths are generally longer to prevent damage to the epidermis. Using the appropriate laser 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, 3-5 laser hair removal treatments are typically required.
