Laser Hair Reduction
Say goodbye to razors, stubble and shaving cream.
Whether for hygienic or cosmetic reasons, women who are tired of temporary, often painful methods of removing unwanted hair on the face, back, legs or other body areas welcome hair removal using Sciton® BBL technology. BroadBand Light energy targets dark pigments in the hair follicles beneath the skin’s surface destroying the follicles and preventing hair growth.
A new standard of laser hair removal combining speed, efficacy, safety, and patient comfort. Laser Hair Reduction with ClearScan is a noninvasive laser treatment for unwanted hair that selectively emits a beam of light that is highly absorbed in melanin, a component within the follicle that gives hair its color, while at the same time sparing melanin in the skin. For this reason, Laser Hair Reduction with ClearScan is comfortable, safe and effective for all skin colors and even sun tanned skin, making it the treatment of choice for unwanted body hair. Laser Hair Reduction with ClearScan can selectively target microstructures, such as hair follicles. The ability to safely treat sun-tanned skin makes this the treatment of choice for active individuals. This noninvasive treatment is a comfortable and easy treatment for the age old problem of unwanted body hair
The laser selectively targets your hair follicles and heats them with laser energy. Unlike other treatments, the laser beam treats many hairs at once, making treatment of large areas practical. Laser Hair Reduction with ClearScan utilizes a unique computer-guided seaming system that automates the treatment ensuring your skin is rapidly and evenly treated. The computer places the beam in an optimum pattern for your skin to experience a safe, effective and gentle treatment.
All skin types, skin colors, from light to dark can be treated. Even tanned skin can be treated safety. However, always inform our provider if you have been tanning, using tanning products, or have experienced prolonged exposure to the sun within the last three weeks. Our providers will then adjust your treatment regimen accordingly to give you the safest and most effective experience. Laser energy can be used to remove all types of hair. When “shaving bumps” cover follicles, the laser energy can still penetrate to the hair follicle for a safe and effective treatment.
Waxing, shaving, and the use of depilatory creams are well-established methods for hair reduction, albeit temporary. Electrolysis is the traditional tried and tested method for permanent hair reduction. However, it is often very time-consuming, painful, and not without complications. With rapid technology development, the most popular and effective method for hair reduction is the use of lasers or intense pulsed light, which are designed to damage and destroy hair in a brief period of time with reduced side effects. People are interested in laser or light hair reduction because the end results are consistent and predictable within a reasonable time frame that fits their lifestyle. Pseudo folliculitis barbate is a type of chronic disorder caused by ingrown coarse or curly hairs. This disorder primarily affects darker skin types and the infrared energy which is delivered by Laser Hair Reduction with ClearScan is the preferred method of treatment.
Hair grows in three stages, and when hair is in the anagen stage (growth) it is most vulnerable to laser treatment. Laser Hair Reduction with ClearScan technology selectively heats the full length of the imbedded hair follicle cutting off its supply of nutrients, thus disabling its growth. Because hair is not always in the anagen stage at one time, multiple treatments must be given over a period of time to treat it while it is in the anagen stage. Our provider will design a treatment series to reflect your desire for hair reduction in particular body locations.
I love waking up in the morning knowing I don’t have to shave, pluck, wax or bleach.
