How does it work?
The light and laser target the melanin in the hair follicle and eradicate it with heat and light.
How many treatments will I need?
Every person is different, optimal results can take up to a year, depending on the area treated and your hair and skin type. On average, 6-8 treatments are needed at 6 week intervals. There are 3 phases of hair growth – anagen, catagen, and telogen. Only hairs in the active growth phase, anagen, can be successfully treated. Since only 20% or so of hairs are in the anagen phase at any one time, successive treatments are needed.

Will it be uncomfortable?
Our BBL and Sciton Laser are the most comfortable hair removal treatments available today. The Sciton’s special cooling system ensures a comfortable treatment. However, since sensation varies from client to client, a topical anesthetic can be provided if desired.
What advantages does the Sciton have over other laser hair removal systems?
Sciton laser uses a longer than normal wavelength which allows the laser to penetrate the hair roots (follicle) at a different level, while at the same time providing a safe treatment for all individuals no matter their skin color or tone.
Who is eligible for hair removal?
Every skin type including the darker color-toned skin is safe to have laser treatments done, and because of the safety factor, it can be used anywhere on the body.
Is hair removal permanent?
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 growth cycle. How many treatments will I need and how often? After a series of 9 treatments, most hair is permanently removed. However, if the hair does regrow it will be finer and lighter than before.
Does it hurt?
The laser has a cooling plate that is used during the treatments to help minimize any discomfort. We also have a Zimmer cooling unit that clients can choose to use as well during the treatments. The power and the duration of the laser pulse automatically adjust by the individuals type of skin and thickness of hair providing optimized treatment for each person.
Should I shave the area requiring treatment before my visit?
Yes, you should shave before every treatment, it is recommended.
