In general, over 50% of the “lasers” used in hair removal treatments is IPL or intense pulsed light technology, which is not a laser. Because it is less efficient, some patients not only endure pain when they undergo treatment, they require several sessions to achieve the desired results, and some hair types don’t even respond well to the treatment.
With Light Sheer Duet, Cosmed uses the Diode Laser System, which emits near-infrared laser light that is turned on for only a fraction of a second. The light is absorbed only by the pigment found on the hair follicle, eliminating hair growth over time. It is equipped with a contact-cooling hand piece called the ChillTip, which provides a cooling effect to the skin to protect it during the laser energy delivery.
