What are the advantages of the High Speed Lightsheer Duet Laser?

Fast Speed: With the High Speed LightSheer Duet, treatment times are now reduced up to 75% for large body areas. Areas like the back and the legs, which normally took up to an hour or more with older lasers, can take as little as 20 minutes with the new High Speed LightSheer Duet.

Amazing Comfort: Due to the LightSheer Duet’s innovative vacuum-assisted technology, treatment discomfort is now also significantly reduced. With the Lightsheer Duet, most people can tolerate the procedure without any topical anesthetic.

Safe for All Skin Types: The High Speed LightSheer Duet is FDA approved to treat all skin types safely.

Proven Efficacy: LightSheer uses the “gold standard” diode lasers which is clinically proven to be effective for laser hair removal since 1998 and perfected over time. The LightSheer Duet has both the High Speed hand piece for bigger areas as well as the highly respected LightSheer ET smaller hand piece with contact cooling for treating smaller and more delicate areas. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment (melanin) located in the hair follicles. During the hair removal procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As hair follicle heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged. This significantly reduces the hair’s ability to re-grow, and results in permanent hair reduction over time.

Permanent Hair Reduction: Laser hair removal offers permanent hair reduction. It is a very popular choice now for both men and women who are seeking a long lasting solution for their unwanted hair.

Save Valuable Time: With the new High Speed LightSheer Duet, you don’t have to invest a lot of your valuable time to get quality laser hair removal. We can now significantly shorten your treatment time with the new LightSheer Duet, not only due to its exceptional high treatment speed, but by eliminating the need for topical anesthetic for most before the treatment and by eliminating the need to for messy gel to be applied during the treatment.

Save On Cost: Laser hair removal can ultimately help you save money in the long run if you are using temporary means to remove unwanted hair. The new High Speed LightSheer Duet will not only reduce the hair permanently with each treatment but since it is highly effective, it may potentially remove the hair in less number of treatments than older lasers, thus offering a further saving on treatment cost.

Treatment of a wide range of vascular conditions can now be performed through an innovative new system called the Cutera Excel V. This state-of-the-art laser tool offers more options in treatment than physicians have had in the past, offering precision and dramatic results that can be seen instantly throughout the procedure. The Cutera Excel V laser combines precision and versatility that allows doctors to address a variety of vascular concerns with a single tool.

The Cutera Excel V laser is used to treat superficial conditions including telangiectasia & spider veins, as well as deeper skin conditions like hemangiomas and leg veins. Port wine stains & cherry angiomas can also be significantly reduced through this laser treatment. The procedure may even be an effective way to minimize the symptoms of painful chronic conditions such as rosacea and poikiloderma.

What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are tiny, dilated blood vessels seen in the skin commonly found on the face and legs but also on other areas. These veins are located just below the surface of the skin and often appear red, blue or purple in color. Spider veins may result in itching and minor aches and pains but they are not a health hazard. They are mostly a cosmetic problem.

What Causes Spider Veins?

Laser hair removal can ultimately help you save money in the long run if you are using temporary means to remove unwanted hair. The new High Speed LightSheer Duet will not only reduce the hair permanently with each treatment but since it is highly effective, it may potentially remove the hair in less number of treatments than older lasers, thus offering a further saving on treatment cost.

How Long Does It Take to Look Better?

The treated areas may look worse at first. The vein may look darker in color with some bruising for several days following treatment. Small amounts of blood may become trapped in the veins as they close down and leave dark spots or lines for a few weeks. Laser often makes spider veins look like red lines that are scratch-like in appearance. It may take a few weeks to see the full effect of a given treatment session. Sometimes one treatment session will be enough, but most patients will need three to five treatment sessions and some patients will need more. It is not usually possible to eliminate 100% of spider veins no matter how many treatments are performed. A 70 to 90% overall improvement is typical.

Basic Information About Spider Vein Treatment

All leg vein patients are encouraged to walk a great deal in the days following each treatment. This helps to circulate blood through the deeper, healthier veins. Support stockings may be recommended for a few days after each treatment to assist in healing. All spider vein patients can return immediately to work and a normal routine including light exercise. Face vein patients may apply makeup immediately. Very aggressive exercise, sun tanning, hot tub and sauna use may need to be limited for about a week.

The Cutera Excel V is FDA-cleared for the treatment of wrinkles and the coagulation & hemostasis of benign vascular and pigmented lesions such as: Venous anomalies, leg veins, venous lakes, diffuse redness, scars, hemangioma, warts, port-wine stains, lentigines, poikiloderma of civatte, angioma, & telangiectasia.
