LightSheer Duet laser is great for hair on breast

The LightSheer (Duet) Laser is the gold standard for laser hair removal.  It is just fine for removing hair on the breast.  The Duet has the high speed handpiece as well as the ET, traditional handpiece.  Either one can be used with good results.

Yes

Laser hair removal can be effective in treating hair anywhere.

In addition, with reference to the comment below regarding shaving causing hair to grow in a more robust fashion, there is no scientific evidence that any form of hair removal (laser, waxing, shaving, plucking) causes hair to grow more frequently, darker or faster.

I hope this helps.

LightSheer safe on breast area

The Lightsheer can be effectively used on all body areas, as long as the hair is dark. Since the skin is darker around the areolas, the laser should be used with caution to prevent burning. It is possible that the pigment can turn darker, but is only temporarily and the color will return back to normal shortly after the treatment.
