Want to go bare this autumn? No problem!
Temporarily getting rid of unwanted hair is simple. Still common practices like shaving and waxing range from tedious and time-consuming to downright painful.
You’ve heard of it before, but laser hair removal is the way to go if you’re sick of the stubble — let’s get a bit deeper in the weeds.
A semi-permanent way to treat unwanted hair, laser hair removal works by damaging the hair follicle and hindering new growth. In simple terms, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, and then converted to heat that damages the hair follicles.
As laser hair removal has gained popularity throughout the country, the technology has come a long way. Nowadays, laser hair removal is one of the most sought after non-surgical cosmetic treatments, but the type of machine used matters. At Revive we’re proud to offer the Icn laser as our machine of choice.
The Icon machine features a high speed handpiece that allows for quick and efficient treatment without the pain traditionally associated with the heat of a laser; in fact the Icon works without any cooling gel. The continuous cooling provided by the handpiece allows for a comfortable procedure — no more wincing during appointments.
Additionally, the Icon is equipped with multiple settings allowing for treatment on any and all skin types. In the past, laser removal machines were unable to treat dark or problematic skin. Use of the wrong laser could mean hyperpigmentation (dark spots), hypopigmentation (light spots), or even burns.
This is not the case for Icon: the innovative dual wavelengths mean you get to customize your treatment no matter what your skin looks like. The workstation allows for unparalleled precision and tailored results by allowing your esthetician to set the laser to accommodate your exact skin and hair type, as well as your lifestyle.
With both a smaller laser for hard to reach spots (eyebrows, under arms, etc.) and big laser for larger spots (think full back, thighs, arms etc.) the entire experience is customized to fit your needs.
The Icon machine also treats a myriad of other skin concerns.In addition to hair removal, Icon can:
- Clear facial vessels and pigment
- Treat and reduce surgical and acne scars
- Treat and reduce the appearance of stretch marks
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Clear leg veins
Finally, Autumn months are the perfect time to test out the treatment. Your skin will be sensitive to the sun following the treatments, so it’s a great time to try the lasers out since the treated skin is more likely to be covered.
You’ll need a few sessions spaced a few weeks apart, so start early to ensure smooth skin for next summer (we know early birds, it’s a long way away)!
