Rethink the Business of Hair Removal
We’ve revolutionized the Gold Standard LightSheer with vacuum-assist technology and by dramatically increasing the spot size to 22×35 mm. The LightSheer DUET enables you to treat backs and legs comfortable in only 15 minutes, making hair removal profitable… without anesthetics and gels.
* No topical anesthetic required.
* Eliminate prep time.
* Reduce treatment times up to 75%.
* Differentiate your practice.
* Grow your patient base.
* Grow your profits.
High-speed integrated vacuum-assist technology.
1. Vacuum draws skin into handpiece;
2. Dermis is stretched thin;
3. Hair follicle is pulled closer to energy source.
4. Melanocytes are spread apart; blood flow is constricted.
5. Energy is applied.
6. Skin is released;
7. Hair follicles are damaged;
8. Tip moved to next location.
* Reduction in competing chromophores enables more efficient delivery of laser energy.
* Lower required fluence levels produce a more comfortable procedure, eliminating the need for topical anesthetics.
Depth of Penetration
Larger spot size enables greater depth of penetration, for improved absorption of energy at the target follicle.
“I’ve used several laser hair removal devices in my practice… LightSheer remains the ‘goldstandard’ because it is the most effective for targeting unwanted hair. Effectiveness, long lasting results, satisfied patients… all add up to repeat business and positive referrals.” – Beth Haney, NP.
“Patients will love it. Nurses will love it… I recently treated a large gentleman’s back and in the 20 minutes it took to treat him, he was practically falling asleep – the treatment was that comfortable.” – Christine Dierickx, MD.
ActiveFX and DeepFX
ActiveFX™ | DeepFX™ results
* Improved function.
* Improves pigmentation and texture.
* Stimulates new skin and collagen formation.
What can you expect following ActiveFX?
You will notice immediate improvement in the surface texture and color of the treated scars. In addition, skin responds to the ActiveFX treatment by stimulating organic growth of new collagen which results in continued smoothing of scars over time.
What can you expect following DeepFX?
You will notice softening of the scar tissue and increased tissue flexibility as the skin heals from the treatment. In addition, your skin will respond by stimulating growth of new collagen within the treated area for up to 6 months.

Scars are marks left on our skin from burns, trauma, acne and surgical incisions, and are a part of the body’s natural healing process in response to bodily injury. Normally, the body stimulates collagen production in an organized matrix to mend the injury. However, scars are created when the healing process is overwhelmed and the collagen is created in a disorganized manner, causing thick scar tissue to form. Scars have a different texture and quality than the surrounding normal tissue, and can be classified into different types.
What is ActiveFX™ and how does it work?
A high-energy beam of laser light interacts with the skin’s surface causing the upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of new skin resulting in improved scar coloration. Immediate collagen contraction occurs and new collagen formation is stimulated, improving scar tone and texture. The laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.

The latest advancement in minimal downtime, fractional CO2 laser resurfacing for aging skin is offered by Dr. Johnson. We are now your location for for TOTALFX. Often called SMARTFX, it combines ActiveFX and DeepFX which gives a complete FX experience.
Our skin changes over time, losing its youthful look and giving way to brown spots, wrinkles and laxity. In recent years there has been a growing number of aesthetic procedures available to treat the skin. ActiveFX – the result of the latest advances in laser technology – is a new procedure that yields remarkable, long lasting results with just one treatment. A fast, office-based procedure with minimal patient downtime, ActiveFX is your single-treatment solution for beautiful younger-looking skin.
Is ActiveFX right for you?
ActiveFX is an ideal treatment option if you:
have a busy lifestyle or cannot be away from work for a long time
want noticeable results with minimal downtime
want to treat dyschromia, fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity
What is ActiveFX?
During an ActiveFX fractional resurfacing procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light interacts with the skin’s surface, causing the upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthy skin.
With ActiveFX, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated. The laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to your normal activities sooner.
ActiveFX produces a dramatic effect on the skin:
• Causes immediate skin tightening
• Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and softens deeper frown lines
• Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
• Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin
• Results of treatment are long-term and, with proper sun protection, can last for many years. • • Most effects of treatment become visible right away, whereas others – such as new collagen formation – build up gradually and results in continued smoothing over time. Therefore, most people continue to show improvement up to 6 months after the procedure.
What can you expect from ActiveFX?
Most physicians perform the procedure in the office with a topical anesthetic cream that is applied before the ActiveFX procedure begins. This is little to no pain associated with the procedure – most patients say they feel warmth similar to sunburn. You can drive yourself home after the procedure. With a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, your photodamaged skin will begin to flake off within 2 days. After about 4 -7 days, your doctor will probably let you wear make-up. Pinkness should be gone in about a week.
DeepFX – Fractional Laser Treatment
The latest advancement in minimal downtime, fractional laser treatment for aging skin.
We are now your location for for TOTALFX. Often called SMARTFX, it combines ActiveFX and DeepFX which gives a complete FX experience.
Benefits of DeepFX
• Results in a single treatment
• Minimal downtime
• Improves scars, wrinkles and texture
• Deep dermal stimulation
• Dramatic results
“As we age, says Dr. Johnson, “changes occure deep in the dermis that accumulate leading to visible signs that include fine lines, deep wrinkles, texture irregularities and scarring.
To adequately treat these problems, treatments need to reach the deep layers of your skin and renew the collagen foundation. Previous treatments produced great results but were limited in appeal due to lengthy recovery times. With the NEW fractional DeepFX treatments, your physician is able to treat the deep layers of your skin, but keep downtime to a minimum. Now, deep wrinkles, skin texture and scars are dramatically improved after just one treatment.”
What is DeepFX?
DeepFX is a revolutionary fractional laser technology for aged, sun-damaged or scarred skin. The low-downtime procedure uses fractional CO2 laser micro beams to precisely target the deep dermal layers of the skin. This stimulates a cascade of healing responses that leads to tissue regeneration and new collagen formation throughout the entire treatment area. And because only a fraction of the skin is actually touched by the laser, healing time can be limited to just a few days.
How does DeepFX work?
DeepFX procedures involve treating only a fraction of the skinʼs surface, leaving bridges of untouched skin to aid in the regeneration process. Each laser pulse removes a narrow column of tissue while simultaneously treating surrounding skin. This deep heating causes immediate collagen remodeling. The result is softening and smoothing of wrinkles and scars, and improved skin texture.
What is a DeepFX treatment like?
office and lasts for about 20 minutes. Your doctor may use an anesthetic cream prior to treatment to aid with comfort. As the micro beams are applied, you will feel a warm sensation at the treatment area. Immediately following the treatment, your skin will feel warm and will be similar in appearance to a deep sunburn. Over the next several days you will follow a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen and avoid direct exposure to sunlight. As your skin heals, it will begin to flake and you will notice improvement in your wrinkles, fine lines and scars.
