Laser Hair Reduction
One of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the United States, laser hair reduction is a safe and effective way to reduce unwanted hair growth on nearly any part of the body.
Laser hair reduction uses an intense, pulsating beam of light, or laser beam, to penetrate the skin and target the hair follicle. The laser damages the follicle, reducing future hair growth. Laser hair reduction is most effective in people with dark hair, as the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle. The Sciton laser can be used to reduce unwanted hair in all skin types, from light to dark.
Numerous laser treatments are available to reduce hair. During your consultation, we will determine the best treatment program for you based on your skin color, hair color, and the treatment area.
Laser hair reduction can treat unwanted hair in nearly any area. Some of the most common treatment areas include:
- Upper lip
- Bikini area
A series of treatments will be necessary to see a significant reduction in hair growth. Only actively growing hair responds to laser and light treatments. Hair in the intermediate or resting phases will not be affected until it again enters the growth phase. Treatments will be required at six week intervals. The number of treatments needed depends upon the body area to be treated, as hair growth rates vary with location. Periodic maintenance treatments may be necessary to maintain results.
