Permanent Hair Removal with the Icon™ Aesthetic System
Everyday women and men waste valuable time removing unwanted facial and body hair. Now, you can make up for lost time with permanent hair removal treatments. Safe and effective laser hair removal treatments with the Palomar Icon Aesthetic System deliver long-lasting results after just a few short sessions.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
During laser hair removal treatment, a laser beam passes through the skin to individual hair follicles. The laser’s intense heat damages the hair follicles and inhibits future hair growth but does not harm the patient’s surrounding skin. Several laser treatments are recommended to achieve permanent results because hair can only be removed when it is in the growth stage. Since not all of your hair is in the growth stage at the same time, sessions are scheduled every few weeks until all of the hair follicles have been treated.
Laser hair removal is safe and recommended for practically all areas including the face, arms, back, underarms, legs, chest and the bikini area.
What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal:
Laser hair removal is quick, effective and has few side effects. After just one short session, you will begin to see results. Your provider will determine how many sessions are necessary to permanently reduce hair. Depending on the size of the treatment area, Icon laser hair removal sessions will last from a few minutes to a half-hour. Best of all, the side effects are no worse than the redness, itching and cuts you would receive from shaving or waxing. Patients may experience a sunburn-like sensation and some minor swelling, but will be able to resume their normal activities immediately following treatment.
