Many people spend a lot of time and money on hair-removal techniques like waxing, shaving, and depilatory creams, only to find themselves repeating the same cycle again after two weeks. If you’re interested in a better option, try laser hair removal. This treatment is one of the most efficient hair-removal methods available.
Laser hair removal is an excellent way to get completely smooth and hairless skin. Its effects are long-lasting – the hair is completely removed right from the root in a single treatment, and you won’t have to think about hair removal for at least a year after treatments.
Laser Hair Removal with Sciton ClearScan
We offer Sciton ClearScan laser hair removal. Sciton ClearScan is a safe and non-invasive laser hair-removal procedure in which a beam of light is selectively emitted to remove unwanted hair.
The advantage of Sciton ClearScan is that the light emitted specifically targets the melanin present in the hair. Melanin is the pigment that gives the hair its color. The laser beam leaves the tissues surrounding the hair follicles undamaged.
Sciton ClearScan uses a type of laser known as a YAG laser and is equipped with a special scanning technology to avoid missing any spots while removing hair. The result is complete hair removal.
This particular laser technique can be used on skin of any color and even for tanned skin. Other lasers are limited when it comes to skin color and tanned skin. Sciton ClearScan can be used safely anywhere on the body.
Typically, results of laser hair removal using Sciton ClearScan are visible immediately after the procedure.
How to Prepare for the Treatment
There is not much preparation needed for laser hair removal using Sciton ClearScan, since it is a non-invasive procedure. During the weeks leading up to the procedure, you must not use waxing, plucking, or other hair-removal techniques that remove the root of the hair. Laser hair removal requires that the root be present so that the laser can focus in on the pigment it contains.
Prior to the treatment, discuss any skin conditions with Dr. Feng so that she can rule out any complications and adjust the procedure according to your needs.
Good Candidates for Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal can be performed on anyone above the age of eighteen, provided they have no life-threatening illnesses or severe skin conditions. Sciton ClearScan can be used on all skin colors, although it is important to consult with Dr. Feng prior to undergoing the treatment.
Is There Any Recovery Time Needed?
Laser hair removal does not require downtime; most patients resume their daily routine immediately after the treatment. In some cases, patients may notice some slight swelling and redness. This is a temporary side effect of the treatment and will subside soon.
Dr. Feng may prescribe post-treatment medications if needed, and these are to be taken as prescribed.
