How does laser hair removal work?
The ICON MAX Ys™ & ICON MAX R™ laser uses short pulses of laser light to destroy hair follicles with minimal discomfort. Over the course of the next few weeks, the treated hair will fall out. While multiple treatments are necessary for permanent results. Incredible results can be seen after your initial treatment.
With each treatment, fewer hairs will return, leaving you with smooth skin and permanent hair reduction. After only three treatment sessions, you can expect an estimated 79% reduction in hair growth at the treatment site.
Will I need more than one laser hair removal session?
Yes, because your hair grows in phases. Some follicles are in the resting or transition phase while others are in the active growth phase. Because the laser energy is only attracted to hair follicles in the growth phase, it’s impossible to target all your hair in one visit. Most clients see the best results with several treatments that are spaced a few weeks apart. Organic Skin & Body Med Spa provider will tailor a treatment plan that meets your needs.
How far apart are treatment sessions?
It depends on which area is being treated. In general, face, underarms, arms, and bikini are about 4-6 weeks apart. Back, chest, and legs are about 8-10 weeks apart.
What are the advantages of laser hair reduction?
Unlike shaving that lasts days or hours, razor bumps or waxing that needs to be repeated every few weeks. Permanent hair reduction is a lasting solution that takes away the everyday hassle of dealing with unwanted facial and body hair.
How long does a treatment take?
The Icon laser works fast. Smaller areas like the upper lip may take only a couple of minutes to treat. Larger areas like the back can take about 20 minutes.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Most patients report a mild snapping sensation as the laser cycles through the treatment. You may also have the sensation of a mild sunburn and experience slight inflammation in the treatment area after the procedure. Both generally fade quickly.
Is there a recovery period after laser hair removal?
You are free to return to normal activities once you leave the office. However, the inflammation that sometimes accompanies laser hair removal can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. You should exercise the usual sun precautions by avoiding prolonged exposure and using sunscreen. Your provider will discuss all these details with you before scheduling a session.
What is the cost?
The cost is based on the size of the area to be treated, the severity of the issue of concern and the number of treatments needed to address your specific issue. Most people need a series of at least 6 treatments to obtain optimal results. Treatments are done every 4-6 weeks. An exact quote of cost and number of treatments needed to treat your specific issue will be provided at your free consultation, after we have had an opportunity to do a complete assessment of your skin.
