With new laser technologies rapidly emerging, tedious or painful hair removal methods such as waxing or electrolysis can now be left behind for this cutting edge, long term solution. Laser Hair Removal can provide men and women interested in an alternative to shaving, waxing or other forms of hair removal. The Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield, under the direction of Dr. Sofer, employs cutting edge, new technologies and techniques in laser hair removal revealing excellent results. Laser hair removal is a proven form of epilation based on many years of clinical experience, research into properties of laser light, follicle growth, and millions of procedures in medical clinics around the world. The science of the procedure is based on the proven fact that a laser beam applied to living tissue will have different effects on tissue components (in this case hair) depending on the rate of absorption. What this means in the case of laser hair removal is that hair (with its melanin pigment) can be successfully targeted with the proper wavelength of light energy. Over a decade of experience has shown laser hair removal is the proven solution for long-term, or in many cases, permanent hair reduction.
Board Certified Plastic surgeon, Dr. Sofer, is committed to offering the best in technology and is pleased to be the first provider of the NEW DUET laser hair removal system, by Lumenis, the “Gold Standard” in laser technology, in the Fairfield Country area.
Notice the difference in Spot Size!
Why is the LightSheer DUET different from other lasers?
The High Speed LightSheer DUET offers several innovative improvements over the previous laser hair removal systems. A vacuum assisted technology combined with an increase in the laser spot size enables a greater depth of penetration, and improved absorption of energy at the hair follicle. These improvements translate to fewer treatments and length of treatment time. (Example: back or legs treatments can be comfortably accomplished in 20 minutes, without gels or anesthetics).
How does laser hair removal work?
The LightSheer Duet is a laser that produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged, which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow. The new, larger laser spot size allows treatment of multiple hair follicles at the same time, substantially expediting the process and making it much faster than older, traditional laser hair removal treatments.
