Laser Hair Removal

What happens during a laser hair removal session?

Laser hair removal with the Sciton system is one of the most effective ways to seriously reduce hair growth from just about anywhere on your body. During your session, your aesthetic specialist moves the system’s handheld device over your targeted area.

With each pulse of laser energy, hair follicles heat up, without damaging your skin (the laser is attracted only to hair pigments). This sudden increase in heat isn’t normal for the hair, and it stops the growth cycle. Since treated hair becomes damaged, it sheds away naturally within a few weeks.

Because the laser energy is absorbed by hair pigments in the roots, you can continue shaving as normal between sessions. You don’t have to worry about growing out your hair to a specific length. Hair continues growing back little by little — it’s finer and lighter with each new growth cycle — until eventually, most of it stops growing back entirely.

How permanent is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is most effective on hairs that are actively growing (anagen phase). Because each hair on your body is in a different stage of growth, you need multiple Sciton laser hair removal sessions to effectively target all unwanted body hair.

Once you complete your laser hair removal package at Skin Savvy — most clients need at least four to eight monthly sessions — you experience a dramatic reduction in hair growth. You may rarely, if ever, need to shave. Targeted hair is gone for good.

Sometimes, special circumstances cause new hair growth to develop. This is most common for women who go through hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause. If you find new hairs are surfacing again, you can always schedule a touch-up treatment at Skin Savvy.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Laser hair removal is known for causing a little discomfort on more sensitive areas, like your upper lip, underarms, or bikini line. Reported as feeling like dozens of tiny rubber bands snapping at your skin, most people tolerate the sensation well.

Chrissy and the caring team at Skin Savvy want to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible during your laser hair removal session. If needed, you’re welcome to come in about 20-30 minutes before your scheduled treatment to apply a topical numbing cream.
