Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is Icon laser hair removal?

Cynosure’s Icon laser hair removal eliminates hair in highly targeted areas using laser energy: the light energy causes damage to the pigment in hair follicles without damaging tissue or other cells around the area being treated. After several treatments, the damaged follicles, which can no longer regenerate hair, are ejected from the body permanently.

Why should patients consider Icon laser hair removal?

For women in a constant battle to eliminate hair from certain areas through shaving, waxing, and tweezing, Icon laser hair offers a permanent solution that is non-invasive, relatively risk-free, and quick and easy. Since the treatments don’t involve any incision or medications, there’s minimal risk for complications or infections. In addition, there’s virtually no downtime associated with this type of treatment, which means patients can resume most of their daily activities immediately after treatment.

Does Icon laser hair removal hurt?

Patients can experience minimal discomfort during and after the procedure, which most patients describe as a sunburn. Cooling gels, lotions, and ice packs during and after treatments resolve any discomfort easily and effectively. The device Dr. Tchabo uses carefully controls the laser energy it emits, which reduces the risk of burns and damage to surrounding areas. Women who are highly sensitive can discuss concerns about pain or discomfort with Dr. Tchabo before treatment begins.

How many Icon laser hair removal treatments do patients need?

This depends on the amount and type of hair patients want removed and how many areas are to be treated. For example, coarser hair will require more treatments than finer hair, and larger areas will also require more treatments. In most cases, patients need several treatments for permanent hair removal in any given area. Dr. Tchabo and his team are happy to provide you a with thorough assessment and individualized treatment plan.

Is Icon laser hair removal safe?

Icon laser hair removal is a widely used procedure and is considered safe. Most side effects after treatment include mild redness and swelling that lasts for a short time. Those undergoing laser hair removal should let Dr. Tchabo know about any medications they take or medical conditions they have before beginning treatment.
