LightSheer DUET | Permanent Hair Reduction

One of the Washington DC metro-area’s leading experts in Cosmetic Dermatology, Dr. Tina West’s office is located at 5530 Wisconsin Avenue #925 Chevy Chase, MD 20815.

The West Institute is conveniently located a few short blocks away from the Friendship Heights metro station–easily connecting people from Gaithersburg, Rockville, Bethesda and Washington, DC in a few short minutes.

You may be surprised to learn that virtually your entire body is covered with hair.

Because most of this hair is fine and pale, it usually isn’t visible to the naked eye.

But, when darker, coarser hair appears in places which make you uncomfortable, it may be time to consider hair removal with LightSheer DUET.

Understanding Laser Hair Removal

In the past, remedies for unwanted hair included plucking, shaving waxing, electrolysis or chemical depilatories.

Some are painful, some are messy and all are only temporary.

Laser Hair Removal is a more effective solution.

The High Speed LightSheer DUET uses state-of-the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology to remove unwanted hair and with greater speed and comfort than other methods.

About the LightSheer DUET Laser Treatment

The High Speed LightSheer DUET is a laser that produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles.

During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up.

As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow.

And with the large spot size, the process treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional laser hair removal alternatives.

The LightSheer DUET offers Dr. Tina West two handpiece choices depending on your needs.

The LightSheer High Speed handpiece uses breakthrough vacuum assisted technology in combination with diode laser light to allow rapid and comfortable treatment of large areas.

The LightSheer DUET also offers Dr. Tina West the gold standard LightSheer ET handpiece with ChillTip cooling for smaller areas.

The LightSheer DUET allows Dr. Tina West to truly customize treatment for your hair type, skin type and lifestyle.

What Can You Expect?

Laser Hair Removal requires multiple treatments.

This is because the laser works best when hairs are in early growth stages (referred to as anagen), and all the hairs are not in this phase at the same time.
