Light and Laser Hair Removal

hairremoval_1HCA Skin Care Center’s leading-edge technology in phototherapy BBL is an outstanding method to remove unwanted hair. Our award-winning manufacturer, Sciton, is a leader in the laser and light arena. As a result, our method for light and laser hair removal is both effective and painless.

Using laser and light therapy to remove hair is simple and produces lasting results. The light energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin in hair follicles and converted to heat, diffusing to and injuring stem cells in the bulb and bulge. Effective hair reduction can only be achieved during the active growth phase. Our professionals will calculate when this growth phase occurs to make your treatment as effective as possible. Hair reduction is considered permanent when a significant amount of hair does not return for a period of time longer than the complete growth cycle.

“I love the results. They are exactly what I wanted. I don’t have to think about body hair as much anymore. I went to the beach this summer and didn’t have to worry about anything. If somebody is considering it, I would suggest that they do it right away. The sooner you do it, the quicker you get results.” – Allie

“I didn’t see any real downtime. There was no pain associated with it, I didn’t have to go home and put ice packs on my face, I didn’t have to hide. It’s the easiest, most painless, cost-effective treatment that I’ve seen, period.” – Bob

“I have had the laser for 2.5 years and have been extremely pleased with the results and reliability, especially the 1064 ClearScan for hair removal. It allows me to treat all skin types safely and effectively.” – Charles Rice, MD
