Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Laser treatments can safely and effectively remove unwanted hair from your face, legs, underarms, arms, bikini area, back, and other areas. Dr. Colon and her staff use the Icon™ Aesthetic System by Cynosure® for effective, safe hair removal.

The benefits of the Icon laser for hair removal include:

  • Precision and accuracy for removing hair without damaging skin
  • Average of three to seven sessions to permanently remove hair
  • Eliminates the need to shave, wax, or tweeze
  • The speed of lasers makes it possible to treat a large area in a short time
  • Convenient in-office procedure with little or no downtime
  • Works on all skin colors and most hair types
  • Advanced cooling system to keep your skin cool, comfortable, and protected during treatments

How does does laser hair removal work?

Laser light targets and destroys hair follicles, so the hair is unable to grow back. A trained laser technician expertly administers the treatment under supervision, so you can be sure you’re getting the best possible care in a medical environment. The procedure is almost painless, with most patients feeling a slight snap, like a rubberband, at the treatment area.

Is there recovery time or downtime?

Immediately following treatment, your skin may be pink or sensitive in the treated area. With the Icon laser hair removal system, downtime is minimal, if any at all. You can return to your normal activities immediately following treatment.

Is it OK to shave between treatments?

In most cases, it’s perfectly fine to shave between laser hair removal treatments. Since the laser treats the hair follicle beneath the surface of your skin, shaving the surface hair won’t affect the results of your treatments. However, you should not shave immediately after your treatment so you avoid irritating the skin or causing nicks and cuts. If you notice you are shaving less frequently, then you’ll know the laser hair removal is working.
