LightSheer® DUET™ Laser Hair Removal Becoming Go-To Summer Treatment, Reports Dr. Jennifer Reichel
Submitted by: Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center
Seattle, WA (OPENPRESS) July 11, 2012 -- Prominent dermatologist, Dr. Jennifer Reichel, is seeing a significant new trend at her thriving Seattle practice: more patients choosing laser hair removal for summertime. Utilizing the "gold standard" in permanent hair reduction, Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center offers the cutting-edge LightSheer® DUET™ laser.
"Summer is the time we're hitting the pool, wearing lighter clothing, and out and about for the world to see," explains Dr. Reichel. "It's no surprise that laser hair removal would see such a boom this time of year." Unlike older hair-removal methods like waxing and depilatories, laser hair removal uses special light energy to permanently reduce hair.
"And, since it is summer, patients are looking to treat areas that will be visible at the pool and the beach," notes Dr. Reichel. "This includes the underarms, the bikini area and the legs." Other common sites for laser hair removal include the face, the neck, the arms and the back.
Asked to speculate on the particular popularity of the LightSheer DUET, Dr. Reichel offered a few possibilities. "For one, the DUET uses a special vacuum technology that gently draws the skin into the handpiece, making the procedure more efficient for all skin types," explains Dr. Reichel. "Moreover, the DUET completely eliminates the need for topical anesthetics and messy gels."
When asked about the future of laser hair removal, Dr. Reichel was optimistic. "Unwanted hair doesn't just look unattractive, but it can affect a person's confidence and self esteem," explains Dr. Reichel. "Now, we have the technology to remove and permanently reduce that hair quickly, easily and comfortably. I can only predict the LightSheer DUET growing even more popular going forward."
