Laser hair removal is the non-invasive removal of unwanted facial and body hair with the use of a laser. The Sciton Broad Band Light offers the gold standard in laser hair removal. It is FDA approved for permanent hair reduction for women and men. The light emitted by the laser is highly concentrated and targets the pigment in the hair follicle. The absorbed light heats the hair structures, which damages the existing hair and destroys the regrowth potential of the follicle, all without damaging the surrounding normal tissue.
Most patients receive around 80% hair reduction with a series of six to eight treatments spaced six weeks apart, however, the number of treatments required can vary based on age, ethnicity, hair color and thickness.
