Pitch out those razors with permanent hair removal!

May 4, 2017

Winter is officially over and that means it’s time to break out the spring wardrobe and start soaking in the sunlight!  The spring wardrobe also means spending more time on hair removal.  Radiant Touch Laser Center offers a new standard of permanent hair removal combining speed, efficacy, and safety!

Radiant Touch’s ClearScan  laser employs laser energy that is able to target specific microstructures, specifically hair follicles.  The laser selectively targets hair follicles and heats them with laser energy.  Other treatment options target individual hair follicles but ClearScan is able to treat many hairs at a time. Utilizing a unique computer-guided scanning system that automates the treatment, ClearScan can treat large areas such as legs rapidly and evenly.

Practical treatment of large areas and the ability to safely treat sun-tanned skin make ClearScan ideal for the ladies on the go!  It is always best to let your doctor know if you have been tanning, using tanning products or been in the sun for prolonged amounts of time so that your treatment can be adjusted accordingly.  All skin types from light to dark can be treated, and even “shaving bumps” can be eliminated by ClearScan.  The computer guided laser energy is able to penetrate all the way to the follicle for safe and effective treatment.



What happens during the procedure and how many treatments will I need?

During the procedure the area of skin to be treated will be scanned with laser light.  The laser light may cause some discomfort but topical anesthetic can be provided.  Let your physician know if you are very sensitive.  Treatment time varies depending on the size of the area being treated.  Treatment plans are personalized by your physician and will vary depending on the level of improvement you desire.  Temporary pigmentation changes are possible but only occur in a small amount of cases.




What can I expect after treatment?

You may experience some redness and slight swelling in the treatment area.  However, this should be gone in a few hours.  If the redness and swelling are present for a prolonged amount of time, consult your physician immediately.  The treated area should be kept clean and a sun screen with an SPF of at least 15 should be used when going outdoors.
