Laser Hair Removal in Elgin

The Science Behind Laser Hair Removal

At Dundee Dermatology, we trust Sciton Bare for quick, lasting laser hair removal in Elgin. This laser hair removal device works by targeting the melanin pigment in the hair follicle. The laser targets and damages this follicle for smooth, hairless skin. This quick laser hair removal option fits into almost any schedule, with noticeable results after your first session!

Bare harnesses 3 powerful wavelengths (810nm, 940nm, and 1060nm) to neutralize the hair growth cycle. By specifically targeting the hair follicle, Bare protects the surrounding skin during your hair removal. In less than 30 minutes a week, you can get the silky smooth skin everyone loves—with none of the nicks and bumps you don’t!

Let There Be Lasers

The Treatment Process

Consultation

During your consultation, we will ensure you’re a candidate for laser hair removal and that you will achieve your desired results. We’ll go over your medical history and any other relevant information, such as lasers you may have tried in the past. After going over the treatment area(s) and your hair density, we will walk you through what to expect during your first laser hair removal session in Elgin.

Treatment

Your treatment can take as little or as long as you have! Pesky peach fuzz can take less than 15 minutes to treat. However, multiple areas may require multiple sessions for complete hair removal. Sciton Bare can be used in multiple areas throughout the body, so your specialist will tailor your session to your exact needs and schedule!
