LightSheer Desire Laser

What is the LightSheer Desire Laser?

The LightSheer Desire Laser is the newest generation of laser hair removal technology, and the most advanced member of Lumenis’ LightSheer family of products.Like its predecessor, the LightSheer Duet, the Desire continues to bring unparalleled speed and comfort to the process of hair removal.

The LightSheer Desire works by combining two technologies- High-Speed Integrated Technology (HIT), which uses an advanced vacuum-like technique to reduce hair in larger patches, and ChillTip Technology, which uses a specialized cooling mechanism to maximize patient comfort while treating smaller or more delicate areas with precision.

LightSheer® DESIRE: Lumenis Aesthetic

Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank is the first and currently the only doctor in the country to upgrade to the new LightSheer Desire technology. Dr. Frank’s philosophy is to choose only treatments that he would use on himself or his family, and every patient deserves that level of care and dedication.

Candidates for Laser Hair Removal with LightSheer Desire

The LightSheer Desire technology has been clinically tested and proven to be suitable for all skin types, and for both men and women alike. If you have unwanted body or facial hair, the LightSheer Desire can help you. Common treatment areas include:

  • Back
  • Full legs
  • Forearms
  • Underarms
  • Bikini
  • Chin

Before LightSheer technology, removing hair from large areas such as the back or legs could be painful, expensive, and extremely time-consuming. With the LightSheer Desire though, treatments for those large areas can be done in as little as ten to fifteen minutes, without any need for gels, anesthetics, or other preparation. At the same time, the LightSheer Desire’s versatility allows it to treat the more delicate face or bikini region just as quickly.

How Does It Work?

LightSheer DesireThe LightSheer Desire uses a laser with an 805nm diode wavelength, the new gold standard for all skin types. Repeated pulses from the laser first reducing existing hair, and then allow the laser’s heat to penetrate the skin and direct energy into the hair follicles, reducing future growth. Compared to other laser treatments, the LightSheer Desire’s larger spot size allows for deeper penetration with fewer pulses, decreasing the likelihood of future regrowth, while also allowing for a faster treatment.

The Desire offers three different treatment spot sizes for maximum versatility, and each uses specialized technology suited to that particular spot size. For the largest spot size, the High-Speed Integrated Technology incorporates suction to elevate and stretch the skin. By stretching the skin thinner, the laser achieves maximum absorption into hair follicles, while minimizing the physical sensation of heat. For the two smaller spot sizes, the ChillTip technology uses a specialized cooling system to achieve the same effect. The cold raises the hair follicle, allowing for easier hair reduction and deeper penetration, while also momentarily numbing the skin to minimize pain.

LightSheer Desire vs. LightSheer Duet

The difference between the old LightSheer Duet and the new LightSheer Desire lies in the comfort and efficiency of the treatment. The first change is the slight tweaking of diode wavelength, the final result of over a decade of research and modifications.

The other significant upgrade is the updating of the actual treatment tools. The LightSheer Desire offers smaller, more streamlined handpieces that can be swapped out instantly. This allows for a faster, less invasive, and more comfortable treatment session than ever before. Comfort and time have long been the biggest obstacles for hair reduction, but with the LightSheer Desire, those obstacles are a thing of the past.
