- Light Sheer laser hair removal is a long pulsed diode laser that claims to permanently reduce pigmented hair in all skin types.
- The LightSheer laser is specifically designed for hair removal. Unlike IPL that has multiple uses, LightSheer targets only the hair follicle because of its very specific wavelength.
- Manufactured by Lumenis, the LightSheer laser is purported to treat pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB or razor bumps), leg veins, and some dark spots on the skin.
- LightSheer Duet laser is a new version of the laser, often a replacement of the LightSheer Diode machine. The Duet is several times faster than the Diode and the comfort level is significantly better. Many patients who were reluctant to treat large areas, such as the legs, chest and back, have gone ahead with the Duet laser mainly because it is so tolerable and fast. Like other lasers, however, it does not work on blond or white hair.
