LightSheer Duet featured at Good Morning America

Good Morning America

Lumenis’ High Speed LightSheer® Duet™ for permanent hair reduction was featured yesterday on ABC’s Good Morning America Health with Dr. Doris Day, a leading U.S. Dermatologist. During the broadcast, Dr. Day described the LightSheer Duet as ‘exciting’ and ‘the new Gold Standard for laser hair removal’, which she recommends to patients seeking a fast and comfortable treatment with low risk and high value.

Dr. Day added, “I recommend the LightSheer Duet to my patients because it’s fast, it’s virtually pain-free, and it’s permanent. The really great part is that because it’s so fast and efficient, the cost per procedure has actually gone down, making laser hair removal more affordable for more of my patients.”

“Five years of research led to the development of Lumenis’ LightSheer Duet, which offers a high value hair removal solution with unprecedented speed and comfort that benefits both physicians and patients. These benefits have resulted in a very high demand for this exciting new product, in spite of current challenging economic conditions. Clinicians using the new LightSheer Duet report this system reduces hair removal treatment times up to 75% and vastly improves patient comfort, essentially eliminating the need for topical anesthetics and messy treatment gels. These benefits significantly improve practitioner and patient acceptance of hair removal, as well as increase the revenue potential for physician practices and clinics,” stated Robert Mann, General Manager of Lumenis’ Global Aesthetics & Dermatology Business.

“We are delighted that our LightSheer Duet is experiencing such a positive response to its initial release,” commented Mr. Dov Ofer, Lumenis’ Chief Executive Officer. “The significant excitement and demand being generated from the LightSheer Duet suggests that we are successfully delivering to the market groundbreaking products that our customers and their patients want and need – which is ultimately our #1 goal” Ofer added.

About Lumenis’ LightSheer Duet

The LightSheer Duet features two hair removal systems on one versatile platform enabling clinicians to optimize permanent hair reduction anywhere on the body. The platform also includes the LightSheer ET system, which is ideal for smaller or bony areas such as the upper lip, chin, or around the ankles. The performance of this system is well documented and clinically validated, satisfying customers worldwide with over 6000 LightSheer systems installed.

The New LightSheer HS (High Speed handpiece) features a large 22×35 mm diode array that is designed for treating large areas such as legs, arms, chests, abdomen, shoulders and backs. LightSheer HS employs fully integrated vacuum assist technology to gently lift skin into the treatment aperture prior to applying laser energy. With this approach, the targeted tissue is gently stretched and thinned, minimizing competing chromophores by blanching vessels and spreading skin pigmentation over a larger area, in addition to pulling the hair follicle closer to the skin’s surface. The cumulative result is that energy is delivered more efficiently to achieve excellent clinical results with speed and comfort. These combined features allow clinicians to treat large areas easily and quickly, leading to a significant reduction in treatment time, which essentially eliminates clinician fatigue and revolutionizes treatment economics.
