Laser Hair Removal
Now men and women alike are making unwanted facial and body hair a thing of the past – thanks to Laser Hair Removal. No more painful waxing, electrolysis or razors! The laser delivers 21st century technology for treatment of this distressing problem. Cleared for permanent hair reduction, the CLARITY and the Sciton BBL System can treat men and women of all skin types safely and effectively, year-round. Even patients with a suntan.
Forever Bare BBL from Sciton is a revolutionary technology in hair removal. Traditionally, hair removal devices apply all of their energy to any given area all at once. By sending multiple lower fluence pulses at a high repetition rate, Forever Bare BBL provides a treatment that is safe, fast, efficacious, and comfortable.
Our Newest Addition to our team is the Clarity. The CLARITY is one of the most versatile dual wavelength platforms on the market for top laser indications aesthetic physicians around the world treat every day. Combining two wavelengths – long pulsed 755 nm Alexandrite and 1064 nm Nd:YAG in one easy-to-use device, we can gently remove pigmented lesions, unwanted hair, wrinkle reduction, and ameliorate the appearance of vascular lesions.
The Nd: Yag system was designed to be the most outstanding laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types, from light to dark, including tanned patients. Its unique design, longer wavelength, and innovative cooling allow extremely effective, safe and permanent results.
The patented CLARITY handpiece cools and soothes using a Cryogen and cooling system as it glides along your skin. When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is required; however some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
Forever Bare BBL handpiece provides continuous cooling, even at maximum power, to keep the skin cool and comfortable before, during and after treatment. By providing energy in multiple bursts instead of all at once, Forever Bare BBL keeps the skin protected and progressively raises the follicle temperature to the therapeutic level for hair removal.
Most areas require 6-8 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hair thickness, the area treated and your hair’s growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting. Laser treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically last for several hours or less. In rare instances, blistering may occur. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, Laser Hair Removal effectively treats an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.
