About Laser Hair Removal
Get smooth, hairless skin with laser hair removal. Laser hair removal can destroy facial hair and body hair to eliminate any need for shaving or waxing. This effective, nonsurgical treatment can give you attractively smooth skin with long-lasting results.
Nearly any healthy adult may be a candidate for laser hair removal. Candidates typically want to permanently eliminate facial hair or body hair. Individuals of every skin tone may be candidates for laser hair removal with the Sciton JOULE™ platform.
Laser hair removal can be used to permanently eliminate facial hair or hair from virtually anywhere on the body. Most commonly, laser hair removal for body hair is performed on the chest, back, legs, arms, underarms, and bikini line.
Laser hair removal is performed over multiple sessions to eliminate all hair follicles, which at any given point are in differing stages of growth. The laser is passed over the treatment area and immediately destroys hair follicles in the active growth phase, which prevents the hair follicles from growing back. Treatment sessions are each spaced about 6 weeks apart to eliminate all the hair in the target area.
After the Procedure
Some redness and slight swelling may occur in the treated area after laser hair removal; this should subside after a few hours. Ice may be applied to the treated area if desired. Skin care and sun care should be performed as instructed to protect this skin and reduce the risk of inflammation and sensitivity. Avoid shaving the treated area for 1 to 3 days. Do not wax.
Frequently Asked Questions

Even across the same square inch of skin, individual hair follicles may be in all different growth stages. This is why the same area of skin must be treated multiple times over the course of many weeks, so as to catch all hairs in their active growth stage.
