Using Lasers for Hair Removal
Posted April 19, 2019 in Laser, Laser Hair Removal
Even with daily shaving, monthly waxing appointments, or routine plucking, unwanted hair is still frustrating and annoying. If you are tired of constantly battling against your unwanted hair, laser treatments with the Sciton® Forever Bare BBL™ laser system offer permanent hair reduction and removal.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted hair grows on many areas of your body and fighting against it takes up far too much of your time and energy. Laser hair removal with Forever Bare BBL™ by Sciton® offers many benefits that shaving, waxing, and plucking cannot.
It Is Efficient
Consider how much time you could save every morning if you did not have to worry about shaving or plucking. Laser hair removal offers relief from the constant hassle of needing to shave and wax. This treatment effectively removes unwanted hair from the legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, back, and upper lip so that you can feel confident and comfortable.
It Is Cost Effective
Although laser hair removal may seem expensive at first, you have to think about it long-term. While it is true that laser treatments require a higher upfront cost, consider how much money you spend on razors, shaving creams, and waxing appointments over a month, a year, or ten years. You may find that the cost of laser hair removal is much less than the expense of shaving or waxing.
It Is Long Lasting
Waxing typically lasts for a few weeks and for some, shaving may only last a few hours. Laser hair removal with the Sciton® laser system permanently reduces and removes unwanted hair on any area of the body. Periodic maintenance sessions may be recommended after your initial treatment plan.
How Does the Laser Work?
Laser hair removal targets and heats the hair follicles that are actively growing. The Sciton® laser relies on a low-energy laser beam that evenly targets and damages the roots of the hair without harming the surrounding skin or tissues. This treatment is comfortable, safe, and reliable, with results starting to show after the first treatment. Since the laser only identifies active hair follicles, most patients require a series of three to five sessions that are spaced at least one month apart. Some redness and swelling are expected from the treatment; however, this usually dissipates within a few hours, and no real downtime is expected. It is suggested that you do not shave or wax immediately before your appointment. You need to have some visible hair growth for the laser to identify.
Are You A Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Ideal candidates for laser hair removal are individuals with a significant contrast between the color of their skin and the color of their hair. Individuals with blond or gray hair, or patients with darker skin tones, may not achieve the same level of correction because it is not as easy for the laser to detect the hair. Set up a consultation to determine if you are a candidate for laser hair removal.
