Laser hair removal brings a multitude of benefits to patients seeking freedom from unwanted hair. Unlike other methods, laser hair removal targets and inhibits hair at the follicle, resulting in a long-lasting reduction of hair growth. The versatility of laser treatment extends to various body areas, including the face, legs, underarms, and bikini line. Compared to conventional methods like shaving and waxing, laser hair removal is characterized by minimal discomfort and reduced risks of ingrown hairs and skin irritation. Moreover, this procedure offers long-term time and cost savings, fostering self-confidence and delivering a consistently smooth and convenient hair-free experience.

Your Laser Hair Removal Procedure

A Smooth Experience

The process begins by thoroughly cleaning the treatment area, removing any oils or lotions that may interfere with the procedure. To maximize comfort, a cooling gel is gently applied, creating a soothing and protective barrier for the skin. The advanced Sciton laser device delivers a concentrated beam of light, precisely targeting hair follicles while safeguarding the surrounding skin. This cutting-edge technology minimizes discomfort during the procedure. Additionally, aftercare includes the application of a soothing gel or cream, promoting a comfortable recovery. With Sciton BareHR, achieving your desired results becomes a comfortable and enjoyable journey.

Freedom From Unwanted Hair

Laser Hair Removal Results

In general, multiple sessions are necessary to target hair follicles in different growth phases effectively. Hair grows in cycles, and laser hair removal is most effective when the hair is in the active growth phase (anagen phase).

On average, most patients require a series of 6 to 8 treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve significant hair reduction. However, it's important to note that individual responses can vary. Some individuals may require more or fewer sessions based on their unique circumstances.

After completing the initial series of treatments, many individuals may require periodic maintenance sessions to target any new hair growth or to maintain the results achieved. The frequency of maintenance sessions can also vary depending on the individual.

Easier Than Ever

Sciton Bare HR Laser Hair Removal Recovery and Aftercare

Immediately after your treatment, you may experience some mild redness, swelling, and a sensation similar to a sunburn in the treated area. These effects are usually temporary and should subside within a few hours. Applying ice packs or cold compresses to the treated area can help reduce any discomfort or inflammation. Additionally, you may be advised to use soothing creams or aloe vera gel to calm the skin.

You will need to protect the treated area from sun exposure for at least a week after the procedure. This includes both natural sunlight and tanning beds. Sunscreen with a high SPF should be used if the treated area cannot be completely covered.

It's important to maintain a gentle skincare routine during the recovery period. Avoid using harsh exfoliants, scrubs, or any products that may irritate the treated area. Stick to mild cleansers and moisturizers recommended by your provider. You will also want to avoid hot water and sweating for the first 24-48 hours.


Does laser remove hair permanently?

Laser hair removal offers long-lasting results. However, you should expect your treated hair to become progressively fine and light in color. Following your recommended treatment plan can help you to achieve the best possible results.

Do you shave before laser hair removal?

Yes, it’s a great idea to shave before your hair removal procedure. This will allow for the shortest path for the light to travel to the hair follicle. However, you should not wax the target area for at least one week prior to your session.
