Laser Hair removal

The Sciton® Joule X platform contains an infrared laser that selectively targets hair follicles and is effective for more skin types than most other laser systems. Even tanned skin can be more safely treated than before, although individuals with fair skin and dark hair achieve the best results.

A cooling system is used on the skin to remove heat as it leaves the hair follicles to ensure a comfortable treatment. A topical anesthetic may also be used. A unique computer-guided scanning system makes treatment of large areas quick and even. Temporary redness subsides within a few hours, while 3-5 treatments at intervals of 3-8 weeks provide excellent long-term hair reduction.
