Laser Hair Removal
Smith Cosmetic Surgery offers patients the gold standard in laser hair removal, the Sciton Profile Laser. The advanced laser hair removal technology we utilize will provide you with impressive results, even after one treatment.
Laser hair removal can be performed on almost all areas of the body, including:
- Bikini line
- Upper arms
- Other areas where you may have unwanted hair
How many treatments do I need?
Hair naturally grows in cycles. Due to the varying patterns of hair growth, at least five treatments that are spaced four to eight weeks apart are required to allow for permanent hair reduction. Each treatment will reduce the volume of unwanted hair. Although five treatments are usually required to produce optimal results, there will be a noticeable difference with each treatment.
Can you remove my hair if I have dark skin?
The Sciton Profile has multiple machines in one, offereing both BBL treatments as well as a 1064nm YAG laser and is thus safe and effective on all skin colors. Laser hair removal with the YAG laser does not cause any discoloration that would affect darker skin tones.
Can I have laser hair removal done if I have light hair?
Laser hair removal uses a pigment seeking light to target darker unwanted hair. We find that white, gray, or fine blonde hair is more difficult to treat effectively with laser hair removal. If you are unsure if your hair is dark enough for laser we are happy schedule you for a free consultation.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal treats the hair at the root. You may experience a slight tingle, a sensation of heat or a rubberband snap during the procedure, however this feeling goes away within seconds of the treatment. The level of discomfort varies depending on the patient.
