Safe for men and women and on all skin types and skin colors, laser hair removal has become extremely popular as the technology has advanced to where it is today. Learn more below about the laser hair removal process and how it works to permanently remove hair.
1. Schedule a Consultation
If you are remotely interested in laser hair removal, the first step will be scheduling a consultation with a laser hair removal specialist. Make sure that the practice has extensive experience in laser hair removal and that they offer the leading laser hair removal technology. For example, Ahava Medispa in Livingston, New Jersey proudly offers ClearScan by Sciton, a laser hair removal treatment that is safe for all skin types and offers the most advanced treatment currently available.
During your consultation, you will learn more about how long it will take to achieve permanent hair removal depending on your specific hair type and goals. People with thicker hair will require more laser hair removal sessions, and larger treatment areas will also take longer than smaller areas. It is important to have realistic expectations of how many sessions will be necessary for total hair removal before beginning the process.
2. Choose the Right Laser Hair Removal Method
There are several different types of laser hair removal treatments, and each place you go to may offer a different method. Do your research and make sure that the laser treatment method you choose is FDA approved, safe for your skin type, skin color, area of skin and hair type, and that you are going to a trusted hair removal specialist. ClearScan by Sciton is the leading safe method of laser hair removal for all areas of the skin.
3. The Laser Hair Removal Process
When using ClearScan by Sciton, a computer guided laser will scan the treatment area and customize how the laser is targeted at hair follicles. Upon selectively targeting hair follicles, a laser is implemented to target heat to the treatment area. This heat targets the hair follicle, including ingrown hairs, making it harder for hair to grow in the treated area. ClearScan by Sciton works rapidly and evenly on the treatment area, making it ideal for small and large treatment areas alike.
Laser hair removal is mostly painless, with most patients reporting that it feels like a rubber band being snapped on to the treated area. The area may be slightly red and swollen after each session but will look normal within a few days. Complications are very rare.
4. Repeat Laser Hair Removal Sessions
The number of treatment sessions necessary will highly depend on the area being treated and the patient’s hair removal goals. Repeat sessions will be necessary for total hair removal, however hair will grow back lighter and thinner after just the first session.
5. Enjoy Your Smooth, Hair-Free Skin!
Once your desired results have been achieved, that is it! You can now enjoy your smooth, soft, hair free skin! This safe and popular hair removal treatment is widely popular among both men and women, especially in areas that are hard to shave or prone to razor burn and ingrown hairs. Patients tend to be extremely satisfied with their results, especially considering the speed of each session and ability to go about one’s day immediately following a session.
