The Light Sheer Duet™ uses 2 handpieces. One is a large handpiece that covers areas such as legs and backs quickly (less time, less discomfort) and utilises a suction mode that allows lower energy densities (higher energy densities result in more discomfort). The second handpiece is used for small and more intricate areas. This handpiece has a chilled tip that cools the skin for comfort and safety. Post-treatment the skin may be warm and ice packs can be used to cool these areas. Your first visit will be a consultation and patch test performed a minimum of 1 week before treatment commences, regardless of any previous laser or IPL treatments at other clinics. This is for your safety and to ensure that the correct parameters are chosen.
