The Ease and Comfort of the Sciton®️ Profile Laser
Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz strives to provide patients with the latest technologies and devices, and laser hair removal procedures are no exception. In an effort to increase our success rates with laser hair removal, we use the Sciton®️ Profile laser system.
What sets the Sciton®️ Profile laser system apart from other devices is its ability to emit two wavelengths of laser light energy instead of the standard single wavelength device. This dual-energy effect allows our Premier Vein & Body specialists to better control and customize the procedure to your specific skin and hair type.
The Sciton®️ Profile laser also makes hair removal treatments more comfortable in that the device has a cooling plate that cools the skin before, during, and after the laser pulse is emitted. In this way, the cooling plate makes for a safer, more comfortable experience.
Also, the Sciton®️ Profile emits a wider laser beam than most other systems, which allows it to treat larger batches of hair follicles at a time. This makes the Sciton®️ Profile an ideal choice for removing unwanted hair on large areas, such as the legs and back.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Initially, you can expect unwanted hair strands to thicken in response to the laser energy they absorb. As hair follicles shrink and shed, new follicles enter the active phase and replace them. For these reasons, it can take up to three sessions before you see noticeable results.
With each successive hair removal session, you’ll notice increasing hair loss as all the follicles in the treatment area die off. Within six to eight months, you should see a silky, hair-free skin surface!
How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost for a laser hair removal treatment runs around $287 as of 2019. However, keep in mind that this is a national average, so prices will vary depending on your location and treatment needs.
Factors that affect hair removal costs include:
- The cosmetic center you use
- The location of the cosmetic center
- How many treatment sessions you need
- The size of the area being treated (large areas, such as legs, take more time than smaller areas like the face)
- Whether you receive treatment for one area or multiple areas
