Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Shaving, tweezing, and waxing are only temporary hair removal methods, but with Icon laser hair removal treatments, you can get long-lasting results. Other benefits of laser hair removal with the Icon laser include:

  • Reducing hair quickly and easily
  • Safe for all skin types and most hair colors
  • Fewer ingrown hairs and shave-bump rashes
  • Decrease in stubble
  • Reduced hair thickness
  • Reduced amount of hair growth
  • Works on multiple treatment areas
  • Virtually painless treatments

The Icon laser reduces hair growth on whichever area you need it, such as:

  • Legs
  • Underarms and arms
  • Face
  • Back
  • Bikini area
  • Chest

Depending on the size of the treatment area, your appointment can last just a few minutes to an hour. Most women achieve their desired results in just 3-6 treatments, too, but Dr. LeBel and her trained laser aesthetician develop a plan that delivers the results you desire so you don’t have to shave as often, or even at all.

How does the Icon laser work to remove hair?

The Icon aesthetic system is part of CynoSure® technology — a leader in the industry. The laser energy targets and destroys hair follicles so they can no longer produce new hair. The laser is powerful enough to destroy hair cells while leaving the surrounding dermal tissue unharmed.

Since hair grows in stages, you need more than one treatment so the laser can affect the hair while it’s in the growth stage. During each treatment, there’s minimal discomfort and no downtime, so you can get back to your daily routine without interruption.

What side effects can I expect from laser hair removal?

With the Icon laser system, there are virtually no side effects. Your skin may be a little pink immediately following treatment, but that typically goes away in a few hours. The treatment itself feels like a tingling sensation or the snap of a rubber band and is usually well-tolerated.

If you’re tired of wasting valuable time shaving, waxing, plucking — or any other inefficient method of hair removal — call the expert team at Elle OBGYN to schedule an appointment or book online, today.
