Most hair removal is traditionally done in three ways: shaving, plucking, and waxing. Shaving is a quick remedy, but it only removes the hair on the surface of the epidermis and can begin to grow back in up to three days. Plucking removes the hair from the follicle. While suitable for smaller surface areas, the process can be painful and is only effective for up to six weeks. Waxing with a professional or at home also removes hair at the root. Effective waxing should be done every three weeks, though this treatment can cause hair follicle inflammation, skin irritation, and minor burns if hot wax is used.
By contrast, laser hair removal uses light energy that is converted to heat energy to penetrate the epidermis and targets hair follicles. CEENTA relies on the Forever Bare BBL™ mode from the Sciton Joule X Platform to strategically target desired head-to-toe hair areas for maximum results.
Patients in good overall health who are looking for a sustainable alternative to traditional hair removal techniques are ideal candidates for this procedure. It is recommended that patients delay constant sun exposure (ex. tanning) prior to the procedure.
Before the procedure, your physician will recommend shaving the target areas in order to have consistent results. They will also clean and sanitize the target areas prior to using the BBL™ by Sciton.
During the treatment, the device will use low-energy pulses light energy to heat and damage the hair follicles to inhibit hair growth. While this is going on, the BBL also uses a sapphire cooling plate to keep the skin comfortable. As a result, topical anesthesia is not used during the procedure.
Overall, laser hair removal will take as little as 15 minutes to perform.
Patients receiving this treatment can expect even hair removal and smoother skin over time with consistent treatments. Treatments can be performed on the target area to target smaller portions such as the upper lip and cheekbones.
Laser hair removal is best performed on lighter skin tones and darker hair. Patients who have recently tanned or had constant sun exposure may have some complications achieving desired results due to the concentrated light energy used on the skin.
