Hair covers our entire body but grows thicker in certain areas. Now there are ways to permanently remove unwanted hair painlessly, making it one of the most common procedures in aesthetics today. Whether it is the peach fuzz on your face or darker hairs on other parts of your body, we can help.
The energy from our Sciton Intense Pulse Light procedure is selectively absorbed by the melanin in hair follicles and is converted to heat, diffusing to and injuring their stem cells leading to hair loss. Effective hair reduction can only be achieved during the active growth phase and hair reduction is considered permanent when a significant amount of hair does not return for a period of time longer than the complete growth cycle. After a series of treatments, most hair is permanently removed. However, if hair does regrow it will be finer and lighter than before. This treatment can significantly improve your overall skin health, especially if you are one who gets ingrown hairs that constantly get infected. Your appearance and confidence will be restored when you do not have large red cysts on your face from folliculitis. If you hate plucking, tweezing or shaving, this procedure is one you will have wished you did years ago.
