Laser hair removal with Icon™ by Cynosure® is one of the most advanced types of medical lasers on the market. Treatments specifically target hair follicles deep below the surface of your skin. As those hair follicles heat up, the growth process stops.
Since your body can no longer use the hair — it’s been damaged — treated hair naturally sheds away over the following weeks. At some point, treated hair is likely going to grow back. When it does grow back, it’s finer and lighter with every growth cycle.
With multiple laser hair removal treatments, you can drastically reduce hair growth. The Icon laser is ideal for all hair colors and skin shades.
Some areas are more sensitive than others, although you shouldn’t be in pain. Most men and women explain that laser hair removal feels like several tiny rubber bands hitting their skin all at once.
Though laser hair removal treatments with Icon are generally well-tolerated, you can certainly apply a topical numbing cream or ice pack before your session at Renew Laser Aesthetics to ensure your visit is as comfortable as possible.
You should experience less hair growth shortly after your first Icon laser hair removal treatment at Renew Laser Aesthetics. For optimal results and dramatically smoother skin, you could need anywhere from six to eight sessions — possibly more for ultra-coarse hair.
It’s important to gently exfoliate your skin while bathing to help damaged hairs work their way out and shed. You should never pluck or wax treated hair though since you could disrupt the natural shedding process after laser hair removal. Shaving is allowed between visits to help you maintain smooth skin.
Yes! Once you reach your desired results after laser hair removal, treated hair is gone for good. Occasionally, new hair growth occurs. This is most common with women who experience hormonal fluctuations, such as those occurring during pregnancy.
If you ever have additional hair growth, you can always come back to Renew Laser Aesthetics for touch-up laser hair removal treatments.
