LightSheer DESIRE is one of the latest innovations in Lumenis' flagship laser hair removal product line. It combines the elite technology that made LightSheer the gold standard in laser hair removal with an innovative design that provides a revolutionary solution for both the therapist and the patient.
The portable, upgradeable console is ideal for dermatology and aesthetic practices seeking to enter the rapidly growing laser hair removal market.
The design approach of LightSheer DESIRE focused primarily on the user interface. In collaboration with Taga, an industrial product design and development agency, Lumenis created the experience through a large fully customized 15" touch screen which includes an advanced graphical user interface with intuitive presets for fast learning curve and easy treatment delegation, and forms a user-friendly experience for the therapist and a calming atmosphere for the patient.
"At Lumenis we believe that a superior product is measured not only by its advanced technology and performance, but also by its appearance and design," said Tzipi Ozer-Armon, CEO of Lumenis. "In search for a ground-breaking solution within our commitment to continued innovation, we concentrated on the user experience by creating an innovative design, and are thrilled that a distinguished international design directory as the Core77 recognized our product for excellence."
LightSheer DESIRE provides both faster treatment time and enhanced patient comfort. With High-Speed Integrated Technology (HIT™), procedure time is reduced by more than 75% and large areas such as the back and legs can be treated rapidly using the 22x35mm spot size. Lumenis' patented ChillTip™ Technology improves patient comfort by cooling the skin prior to and throughout the treatment.
