Both men and women may have unwanted hair to contend with. If you have very dark hair in locations on your body where you would rather not, you have a few options. You can shave it; however, this is usually a very temporary and not terribly effective solution. You can wax it, but this can be quite painful. There is also a fast, effective solution that uses the power of Intense Pulsed Light to safely remove unwanted hair – ICON laser hair removal.
This laser uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), a special wavelength of light that safely penetrates the skin to target your unwanted hair. The ICON works by identifying and eliminating dark pigmented areas; in this case, the dark pigments that lead to dark hair. The pulses of light destroy the follicles that cause this hair to grow, eliminating it.
ICON is a non-invasive, non-surgical device that uses nothing but the power of light to remove your hair. You may feel some warmth and a slight snapping sensation as the light eliminates the hair follicles. The ICON laser handpiece has a cooling tip for your comfort and we take every step to make sure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.
If you have very dark hair you wish to remove, you are a good candidate for ICON treatments. We can remove unwanted hair from your face, back, arms, underarms, chest and more. This treatment is not ideal for areas of light hair. Other than this, the treatment is suitable for all skin types and hair colors.
Over time, you should see a gradual reduction in the volume and thickness of dark hair in the target area. You may also see less stubble, ingrown hairs and rashes related to unwanted hair. We recommend at least 3-6 treatments because the laser can only target hair that is trying to grow in, and not all body hair grows in at the same time.
