Laser Hair Removal
WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Do you want to throw away your razor? Do you wish razor burn was a thing of the past? Now, you can have smooth skin without shaving, tweezing or waxing. Laser hair removal is a quick, easy way to remove unwanted hair from targeted areas of your body, including your legs, arms, underarms, lip, chin, and bikini line. Laser hair removal treatments at our office are fast and effective, with little discomfort and minimal patient downtime.
HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?
We use both broadband light and Sciton’s patented ClearScan™ , an infrared laser that selectively targets micro-structures, such as hair follicles, to stop the growth of hair. During treatment, energy targets the hair follicles beneath the skin, heating the hair and destroying the root without damaging any surrounding tissue.
WHAT WILL I FEEL DURING THE TREATMENT?
Most patients report a slight tingling feeling during laser hair removal treatment. While certain areas, such as the upper lip, may feel slightly more sensitive, most patients tolerate laser hair removal very well.
CAN LASER HAIR REMOVAL BE DONE ON ANY TYPE OF SKIN?
In the past, laser hair removal was only effective on fair skin. With the new ClearScan™ technology, you can have amazing results * whether you are fair or have very dark or sun-tanned skin. Let us know if you have been using tanning products or if you have been exposed to the sun within the last three weeks, so that we can adjust the treatments accordingly.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
For the best results, we usually recommend a series of treatments in three to eight week intervals.
WILL THERE BE ANY DOWNTIME AFTER TREATMENT?
No. You may return to your normal activities immediately after treatment, although we do recommend protecting your skin from direct sunlight for a short while.
