About Laser Hair Removal

The Sciton JOULE ClearScan ALX is perfect for elimination of unwanted hair on the legs, arms, bikini, upper lip, or anywhere hair growth is a problem with a quick, virtually painless procedure. The ClearScan laser selectively targets your hair follicles and heats them with laser energy. Unlike other treatments, the laser beam treats many hairs at once, making treatment of large areas practical for faster, more effective treatments. As Medical Director of Renovation, board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Charles P. Virden choose the ClearScan system to help his patients permanently reduce their hair follicles so they can spend their time on something more fun.

Best Candidates for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair reduction can help patients who:

  • Want to stop using temporary hair removal methods, like shaving
  • Have a medical condition that makes it difficult to use other hair removal methods
  • Want smoother skin with less hair
  • Want to reduce hair on areas of the face and body, including the legs, arms, bikini area, and upper lip

What to expect for your laser hair removal services?

The ClearScan utilizes a unique computer-guided scanning system that automates the treatment, ensuring your skin is rapidly and evenly treated. The computer places the beam in an optimum pattern for your skin to experience a safe, effective, and gentle treatment. The length of the treatment will depend on the amount of hair and the size of the area(s) being treated. For optimal results, patients should have several laser hair reduction treatments since dormant hair follicles cannot be treated. By waiting a few weeks between treatments, dormant hair follicles will have time to return to the growth cycle and can then be treated.

Other Considerations for Laser Hair Removal

Patients can leave immediately after their laser hair removal session and return to their normal activities. The technician will discuss when the patient should schedule their next appointment. Laser hair removal works best on light skin with dark hairs, so a consultation is important to make sure the patient is an eligible candidate for the procedure. Patients may notice mild swelling or redness in the treated area for 1 – 3 days after their session.

Less Hair, smoother skin
