How Does Hair Removal Work?

Hair Removal of the face and body by ClearScan Laser® or BBL Intense Pulsed Light® is safe, effective, and comfortable way to reduce unwanted facial and body hair for extended periods of time or permanently. Areas such as underarms, the bikini area, face, legs, and back can all be treated with much more effectiveness and comfort as compared to plucking or waxing. The procedure can remove unwelcome hair from virtually anywhere on the body. After laser hair removal treatment the burden of unwanted hair can be significantly reduced. For gentlemen, that pesky ingrown beard and the discoloration that goes with shaving can finally no longer be a concern. Although the best results are achieved after several treatments, immediate results can be seen even after the first treatment. Excess hair of the back, arms and neck can be removed or reduced.

With our hair reduction laser, light energy is used to target the skin structures that make hair. As a result, fewer hair follicles grow back, and the ones that do, are finer and less visible. By using a specific wavelength, the hair follicle can be affected without damage to the surrounding skin. All hair colors and skin types can be treated. Some hair types and colors are more effectively treated with Intense Pulsed Light. Both modalities are ready for you at Snow Ear, Nose and Throat, and Snow Facial Plastics.

Benefits

  • Precision – Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged
  • Speed – Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour
  • Predictability – Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.
