Question: Are there any new and innovative laser hair removal treatments?
Answer: The newest available hair removal treatment that I am aware of at the time of this blog is the Duette system by Lumenis that combines multiple dialed laser heads with a suction apparatus. The multiple heads allow for treatment of large surface areas and also maximize the energy delivery to the hair. The suction device tends to make the treatment more comfortable. Overall, due to the larger surface area treated the treatment also is much faster so overall the patient gets a more comfortable, more affective, and faster laser hair removal treatment. Due to the way that hairs grow and are only susceptible to the laser hair removal system during their growth phase patients will still need 6 to 8 laser hair removal sessions for a maximum of hair reduction.
