At Westside Aesthetics, we use the Soprano Diode Laser to remove unwanted hair on any area of the body. Dr. Rivkin has found that this particular laser works very well on scalp hair and frequently recommends this treatment for men who are tired of shaving.

The Soprano Diode Laser is painless and extremely effective for removing scalp hair. This is a perfect solution for men who prefer the bald, clean shaven look. Another benefit, is that the scalp typically requires fewer treatments than other areas of the body.

“I have been going to Donna at Westside Aesthetics over the past few years for upper lip and chin hair removal, and she is truly the best! She is both kind and professional at the same time and somehow manages to make the process painless.” – Anonymous

Unwanted hair can appear on any area of the body. For men and women, it is always a matter of preference, as to where and how much hair is acceptable. For some men, a cleanly shaven head is their style of choice. This look is often time consuming and messy to maintain, as it requires regular shaving with a razor. Shaving the scalp can also lead to nicks and cuts on the head, which is never a sexy look. There is now a solution for men who are tired of shaving their head on a daily basis. The Soprano Diode Painless Laser Hair Removal System works very well for scalp hair. In fact, laser hair removal on the scalp requires fewer treatment sessions than it does on other parts of the body because the hair on the head is in a state that is particularly susceptible to the laser.

The Soprano is a uniquely pain free system that works in a way different from most other lasers. Instead of a pulse method of treatment, the Soprano treats in a continuous motion. The laser energy does not go into the skin as a painful blast, but rather heats the hair follicles gradually and gently. Most body parts take 10 to 15 or more sessions to treat. The scalp can usually be treated in 3 sessions. Another advantage to this continuous motion laser system is that it can be used on skin of any color. As long as the hair is dark, the laser will work (even on dark skin) without risk of burning or hyperpigmentation.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Scalp Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal of the scalp is perfect for men who are committed to the bald look. Those who shave often to maintain this style would benefit the most from the treatment. People with light skin and dark hair will see the best results in the shortest amount of time. While this treatment can also be used on darker skin, the energy must be lowered in order to avoid damage to the surrounding skin, since the light targets darker tissue. Therefore, more treatments may be necessary to achieve permanent results in darker skin tones. Light hair is the most difficult to remove. Unfortunately, there is currently no technology to effectively remove blonde or grey hair. However, we do get great results when treating red and light brown hair.
