Laser Hair Reduction
OUR PATIENTS SAY THAT LASER HAIR REDUCTION HAS CHANGED THEIR LIVES
Wells Plastic Surgery offers permanent hair reduction using the most potent, effective technology on the market today with the Sciton® Intense Pulse Light (IPL) or Sciton 1064. The Scition Laser is very safe and effective. It can treat any part of the body because it is flexible, and it is safe enough to treat skin-of-color patients as well.
Permanent hair reduction is achieved in nearly 80% of individuals treated. The best results are seen after multiple treatments because hair goes through different phases and the hair follicle is most effectively treated and removed during the “growth phase”. You may need a touch up if new hair begins to grow, but this is usually very minor.
What Areas of the Body Are Most often Treated for Laser Hair Reduction?
- Upper Lip
- Abdominal Trail
How Does The Sciton Laser Work?
Hair shafts and hair follicles contain melanin (pigment). The light source of the laser targets the melanin and causes thermal damage to the hair shaft and follicle. This in turn causes the hair shaft and follicle to shut down – all without damaging the surrounding tissue.
By destroying the hair-producing follicle with the laser the medical condition known as ‘folliculitis barbae’ (ingrown hairs) can be improved soon after the first treatment. You can have laser hair reduction even if you have ingrown hairs, as the laser penetrates but doesn’t damage the skin, alleviating your ingrown hair problem.
How Many Treatments Are Necessary?
The number of treatments will vary person to person. However, the average number of treatments is four to six (4-6). Your esthetician will discuss the number of treatments you may require and your treatment plan in your consultation. The number of treatments can’t be determined upfront because it depends on how well each patient responds to treatment. Typically, treatment packages consist of six treatments for full hair reduction.
What to Expect Post Procedure
- There is no downtime and you can return to work the same day.
- You might have a sensation similar to a mild sunburn, lasting for a few days.
- After the series of treatments, touch up treatments may be needed in a few years.
- Results last indefinitely.
