Sciton Laser Hair Removal Q & A

Clinical Skin Therapeutics

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal involves using targeted laser energy to target and eliminate hair growth. It has become one of the most common cosmetic procedures to address unwanted facial and body hair. Laser hair removal procedures can get rid of hair on your:

  • Arms
  • Upper lip
  • Back
  • Bikini area
  • Legs
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Armpits

How does laser hair removal work?

Clinical Skin Therapeutics uses innovative laser technology from Sciton® to target unwanted hair growth on all skin types. By focusing laser energy on hair, the concentrated infrared beam destroys the pigment in your hair follicles, which damages the follicle and removes hair.

The specifics of your procedure depend on various factors, including how large the treatment area is, how much hair there is, and what body part is getting treated. You will need at least four to six treatments with about four weeks in between sessions to achieve optimal hair reduction results.

Treatment sessions can be brief, especially if you are receiving treatment for a small area, such as your upper lip. Larger areas, such as your back, may take up to an hour.

Laser hair removal is non-invasive, meaning it involves minimal pain and little to no downtime. The Sciton laser has a continuous cooling feature that ensures your comfort and safety during treatment.

What should I expect after laser hair removal treatment?

Immediately following laser hair removal treatment, you can expect some redness and swelling in the treatment area. This should subside on its own within a few hours. If you experience prolonged pain, redness, or swelling, let your provider at Clinical Skin Therapeutics know right away.

Make sure to keep the treatment area clean and follow any specific instructions from your provider. Try your best to avoid sun exposure and use at least SPF 15 sunscreen when going outside.

Is there a risk of complications?

One potential risk of laser hair removal is temporary pigmentation changes, but this is a rare complication. Your provider discusses any potential risks before treatment and can answer any questions you may have during your in-office appointments.
