Painless hair removal 1
The Lumenis Light Sheer Duet Laser is the first one I have ever experienced that is truly painless. If you have ever tried permanent hair removal, you know that what they refer to as a “snap” can be more like a stab. In order to deal with it, I had to apply a topical numbing cream 40 minutes prior to treatment. The cream then needed to be covered with plastic wrap so it would not get onto clothes. That may not sound so bad, but think about prepping to have your bikini line worked on. I lived about a fifteen minute drive away from the medi-spa and fortunately, never got into an accident on the way to a treatment! Once at the spa, I had to begin icing and that’s always uncomfortable and messy. Because I had to drive to the appointment, I was unable to take a mild painkiller (or have a couple of cocktails). The entire experience was not one I looked forward to.
What a relief to finally have the Lumenis Duet! It is even painless on the face which, can be uber sensitive. And since it works faster than the old lasers, it’s less expensive. Now, if they could make it effective on peach fuzz…Hopefully, that’s the next big improvement.
Check with your local medi-spa to see if they offer the Duet. If not, call another spa!
