About Laser Hair Removal

The "removal" of hair with light-based technologies has been steadily improving over the last decade. Men and women are looking for methods to reduce the presence of unwanted dark terminal hair from many body areas.

Laser Hair Removal is a process in which unwanted hair is removed by a laser that emits a gentle beam of light at the source of hair growth.

LASER is an acronym, which stands for, Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. How does the laser work? Lasers target melanin pigment in the hair in an effort to destroy the hair follicle. Hair follicles produce hairs of various thickness and colors. Dark hair contains the pigment melanin, which serves as the target for energy delivered by the laser. The laser emits a specific light beam that is selectively absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigmented hair shaft and is then transferred to the surrounding follicle. This causes thermal destruction of these hair follicles and disrupts their ability to regenerate, resulting in permanent hair reduction. The laser light eradicates hundreds of hair follicles in seconds.

The Scition Profile ClearScan Laser

The Sciton Profile ClearScan brings a new approach to laser hair removal. ClearScan contains an infrared laser that can selectively target microstructures such as hair follicles. It is very effective for lighter skin types and, because of the relatively low absorption of this light by melanin, it is the best choice when treating darker skin types. Additionally, the ability to safely treat sun-tanned skin makes this the treatment of choice for active individuals.

Are The Results Permanent?

Laser hair removal causes permanent hair reduction and delayed re-growth of the treated hair follicles. Also, re-growing hair is often smaller in caliber and lighter in color than previously.

Many things influence hair growth-your age, ethnicity, weight, metabolism, hormones, medication´┐Żeach play a role in your hair´┐Żs resilience, thickness and areas of growth. Part of the challenge in eradicating unwanted hair lies in the fact that the follicle has regenerative capabilities and that these recuperative powers are highly variable from individual to individual and from one anatomic site to another. You may need an average of 3-6 treatments because only hairs in the active growth phase, anagen, can be successfully treated. More than one treatment is required to disable hair follicles that subsequently enter this growth phase. The treatments are 6-8 weeks apart for the body and 4-6 weeks apart for the face.
