What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a convenient, non-invasive, FDA approved method for permanently reducing or removing unwanted facial or body hair. This procedure leaves the skin looking smoother and silkier than waxing, electrolysis or razors and is a gentle technique that can treat larger areas effectively with minimal discomfort and with no downtime.

Laser hair removal uses a low-energy laser, which passes through the patient’s skin, being absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. Each pulse of the laser targets and inactivates a large number of hair follicles. Approximately 3-6 treatments are necessary, although some people do require more treatments.

Laser hair removal for unwanted hair has become one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the United States, ranked second behind wrinkle-relaxing injections in frequency of procedures performed.

Free yourself from the constant need to shave and wax unwanted facial and body hair and feel your best. Laser based technology has brought to you a permanent solution to remove unwanted hair leaving skin feeling smooth and healthy.

What to expect on the day of treatment?

We suggest shaving prior to your consultation and minimizing sun exposure if you would like to get started the same day as your consultation. Typically, there is little to no down time after treatments, and the treatment is so quick and easy, patients can come on
their lunch breaks.

Before the device is used, a gel is applied to your skin where you will receive treatment. You will also be provided eye shields to protect yourself from the light during treatment. The treatment will begin with guiding the Icon™ handpiece over the treatment area. You will feel cooling while the handpiece is gliding over the treatment area to provide a comfortable session. You may also feel a slight rubber-band like snapping when the energy is being delivered into your skin and hair follicles. This sensation disappears almost immediately, and treatments take just minutes depending on the size of the area.

After the treatment, the gel will be removed and a cooling gel may be applied to your skin. For a few days after your treatment, you may feel like you have a mild sunburn but can resume all your normal day-to-day activities immediately following treatment.
