There are certain occasions when individuals would like to have smooth, soft skin that is free of hair. For example, let’s say that you get invited to go to the beach with some of your friends. The last thing that you want to do is worry about unwanted body hair. Instead, you want your skin to be smooth to the touch and free of stubble. With laser hair removal, you’ll never have to worry about unwanted hair again.
One option is to shave the hair off your legs. Of course, shaving does get rid of hair for a short time. However, if you have ever shaved your legs and then gone to the beach, the lake or the pool, you know that not too long after the water hit your legs, you’re going to be dealing with a lot of skin irritation that will continue for several days. This doesn’t even include the ingrown hairs and short-lived results of shaving.
People deal with unwanted hair on many parts of their body. Women regularly shave their legs, underarms and bikini area. They may also resort to waxing or creams to get rid of their body hair. Men deal with unwanted hair on their body as well. Men commonly shave their face while using other methods to get rid of hair on their back, chest and other parts of their body.
While there are many methods to choose from, no hair removal method provides the same convenience and long-lasting results of laser hair removal. This is a very easy process that allows you to enjoy smooth, stubble-free skin.
Laser hair removal works by disabling the hair follicles in the treated areas. Once they are targeted by the laser, they will no longer be able to grow hair. Better yet, we offer two different forms of treatment with the Sciton system, the BBL and the ClearScan, to safely and effectively treat patients of every skin type.
The state-of-the-art technology behind the Sciton laser means maximum comfort during treatment. It comes with a cooling device that numbs the skin, so you are left with little to no discomfort as the laser does its work. As an added benefit, treatment is quick with the Sciton laser; both legs can be treated in just 45 minutes.
There are a few things to consider with laser hair removal. While it’s an extremely effective process, we can only treat hair follicles that are active. Not every hair follicle is at the same growth stage at the same time, so you will need to return for multiple treatments to get the best and longest lasting results.
