Setting the Standard for Hair Removal

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. The recognized "Gold Standard" for hair removal, the LightSheer family of diode laser systems represents quintessential simplicity in a state-of-the art package.

      The "Gold Standard" for hair removal with an unsurpassed library of clinically documented success

  • Treats all skin types including tanned skin, most hair colors, depths and diameters
  • Patented ChillTip provides continuous contact cooling of the epidermis for maximal patient safety and comfort
  • Fast coverage rate with large 9x9 mm or 12x12 mm square spot and up to 2 Hz repetition rate
  • No consumables, low cost of ownership
  • Proven reliability and outstanding "up time" track record ensures that patient treatments can proceed on schedule.

 Multi-Application Capability

In addition to documentation of clinical efficacy with hair removal and permanent hair reduction, the LightSheer is also FDA cleared for the treatment of pseudo folliculitis barbae (PFB), benign pigmented lesions, and leg veins, providing the operator with multi-application capabilities and versatility.

 Leg Veins - Approximately 50% to 60% of men and women have unsightly leg veins. While sclerotherapy is still considered the treatment of choice for the removal of superficial leg veins, many vessels may be too small to inject or patients may have an aversion to this invasive procedure. The LightSheer diode laser system can provide an alternative method of treatment that requires no painful injections.

Benign Pigmented Lesions - The LightSheer diode laser system can successfully treat a wide range of cosmetically undesirable benign pigmented lesions.

Pseudofolliculitis Barbae (PFB) - PFB, or razor bumps, is a common condition in which the regrowing hair, after shaving, curves back towards and pierces the skin resulting in a pustule or papule. PFB is very prevalent in populations with curly hair, affecting nearly 85% of men of African decent and a growing number of women. The LightSheer's excellent safety profile for all skin types including the darkest skin, makes it a safe, effective and revolutionary alternative for the treatment of pseudofolliculitis barbae.
