Permanent Hair Removal Laser Treatments -ClearScan™
What is ClearScan for Permanent Hair Laser Removal Treatments?
ClearScan is a noninvasive laser treatment for unwanted hair that selectively emits a beam of light that is highly absorbed in melanin, a component within the follicle that gives hair its color, while at the same time sparing melanin the skin. For this reason, ClearScan is comfortable, safe and effective for all skin colors and even sun tanned skin, making it the treatment of choice for unwanted body hair.
What other non-laser & light-based treatments are available?
Waxing, shaving, and the use of depilatory creams are well-established methods for hair reduction, albeit temporary. Electrolysis is the traditional tried and tested method for permanent hair reduction. However, it is often time-consuming, painful and not without complications. With rapid technology development, the most popular and effective method for hair reduction is the use of lasers or intense pulsed light, which are designed to damage and destroy hair in a brief period of time with reduced side effects. People are interested in laser or light hair reduction because the end results are consistent and predictable within a reasonable time frame that fits their lifestyle.
What is permanent hair removal laser treatments? How does it work?
Hair grows in three stages, and when hair is in the anagen stage (growth), it is most vulnerable to laser treatment. ClearScan technology selectively heats the full length of the imbedded hair follicle cutting off its supply of nutrients, this disabling growth. Because hair is not always in the anagen stage at one time, multiple treatments must be given over a period of time to treat it while it is in the anagen stage. Your clinician will design a treatment series to reflect your desire for hair reduction in particular body locations.
Can all skin colors and tanned skin be treated?
Yes, all skin colors from light to dark can be treated, as well as safely treating tanned skin. Nevertheless, always inform your clinician if you have been tanning, using tanning products or have experienced prolonged exposure to the sun within the last three weeks. Your clinician will then adjust your treatment regimen accordingly to give you the safest and most effective experience.
What happens during permanent hair removal laser treatments? Will it be uncomfortable?
The procedure (permanent hair removal laser treatments) is gentle, non-invasive and typically comfortable. The area of your skin that is to be treated will be scanned with laser light. Treatment time will depend on the size of the area to be treated. The continuous cooling feature of the ClearScan will ensure your comfort and safety during treatment. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic. However, you clinician may choose to use it on more sensitive areas. Laser hair reduction works best when the hair is one to two milimetres in length, so your clinician may ask you to shave or trim the area before treatment.
