How Is Laser Hair Removal Performed?
Laser hair reduction is done using the Sciton CLEARSCAN or broad band light. The laser targets hair follicles and heats them with infrared energy. Many hairs are treated at once, making it effective for treatment on large areas. Laser hair reduction works for all skin types and the computer-guided scanning system ensures a rapid and even treatment. There are three phases of hair growth – anagen, catagen and telogen. Only hairs in the active growth phase, anagen, are successfully treated. This is why multiple treatments are needed.
Where Can Laser Hair Removal be Performed?
Laser hair removal can be used to reduce hair in areas all across the body. The treatment can be safely and effectively used on large areas like the back and delicate areas lie the face.
Laser hair reduction is used for:
- Bikini zone
You can expect:
- A system for cooling your skin that removes heat as it leaves the follicles to ensure a comfortable treatment
- Some redness and slight swelling in the treated area that should go away within a few hours
- The need for 4 to 6 treatments at intervals of 4 to 8 weeks to treat hair in the growth phase
- To not shave the treated area for 1 to 3 days following treatment
- To avoid direct sun exposure or use a zinc based sunscreen with at least SPF 30 when outdoors
