LASER HAIR REMOVAL

The Sciton Profile ClearScan 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. The ClearScan utilizes a unique computer-guided scanning 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. Because of its revolutionary cooling plate, the new Sciton Neodynium YAG 1064 laser is fast, effective, and virtually painless. The Sciton laser is able to remove even finer hairs, so even as hair gets finer and finer through treatments, it still continues to remove the hair.

All hair in the area to be treated should be shaved 1-3 days prior to treatment. Older laser technology (the Lightsheer XC Diode) required an anesthetic cream to minimize discomfort. Our new Sciton YAG laser is virtually painless, so no creams are required. Treating small areas like the face, underarm, bikini area or lower abdomen takes just a few minutes. Larger areas like the arms, back or legs can take up to an hour.

Results: Because hairs cycle through growth phases at different times, more than one session is required for satisfactory reduction. Depending on the area being treated, an average of 4-8 sessions, spaced 4-8 months apart, is recommended for long-term hair reduction. Some future touch-ups may be required.
