An effective and safe solution for permanent hair reduction and vascular lesions, ClearHair is the gold-standard technology for all skin types, tanned skin, and outdoor enthusiasts.

ClearHair Overview

ClearHair’s 1064 nm Nd:YAG wavelength and pulse duration are unmatched for permanent hair reduction.

The selective 1064 nm wavelength has strong absorption in oxyhemoglobin, resulting in selective heating of hair follicles, which produces excellent clinical results. The powerful contact cooling enables treatments to be safe for all skin types and tanned skin.

ClearHair’s large area pattern generator (LAPG), fast speed, non-sequential scanning, powerful cooling, and flat-top beam profile provide optimal results and patient comfort during the procedure.

Permanent Hair Reduction – Removal of unwanted hair or permanent hair reduction through selective targeting of melanin in hair follicles, and for the treatment of pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB).

Large Area Pattern Generator (LAPG™) & Non-Sequential Scanning

Sciton designed the ClearScan ALX for fast treatments by giving it a high repetition rate and a large scanned area. These integrated features enable each treatment to be executed rapidly, evenly and safely on patient skin with no costly consumables.

  • ClearHair utilizes the LAPG high speed scanner in a non-sequential delivery for comfortable hair reduction with continuous contact cooling for precise, uniform coverage
  • The computer guided scanner covers large areas rapidly and evenly
  • Maximizes the time interval between adjacent spots for precision thermal relaxation time
  • Minimizes subsurface heat build-up providing additional comfort during treatment
  • High speed, uniform coverage
  • Improved efficacy

Powerful Cooling

ClearHair’s powerful sapphire plate contact cooling, for pre-, during, and post-treatment, provides increased patient safety and comfort.

Beam Profile

The precise targeted flat-top beam profile causes less energy scattering and enables deep penetration to targeted chromophores. Uniform energy distribution results in even treatment to prevent central heat buildup.

No Consumables

Unlike other hair reduction systems, ClearHair delivers superior clinical results with no consumable costs.

Fast treatment

ClearHair can cover large areas 4x faster than other systems, with only 200 scans to cover a large back. Most systems require thousands of hand-placed spots to cover the same area.


Powerful Contact Cooling

A 250-watt integrated contact cooling device controls skin temperature at any treatment speed. It is the first system to use non-selective bulk cooling for comfort and safety.
