Removing hair at home can be such a chore! When it comes to getting rid of unwanted hair, turning to laser hair reduction is not only practical but comfortable too. At Coastal Dermatology & Aesthetics, our ICON™ Laser Hair Reduction system involves the use of powerful light-based technology that works by targeting and destroying the hair follicles responsible for hair growth. Designed to accommodate a wide range of skin and hair types, our hair reduction services can reduce hair from almost anywhere on the body without harming the surrounding skin. Schedule your appointment and swing by our San Luis Obispo center and ask about our hair removal for men and women alike.
What Is ICON™ Laser Hair Reduction?
The ICON™ Laser Hair Reduction procedure involves the use of a handheld device with a smooth glass surface. This handpiece targets individual hair follicles, delivering heat that prevents them from growing new hair. While the heat from the ICON™ targets your individual follicles, the system simultaneously employs cooling energy, protecting surrounding tissues around the area. This dual-action keeps you comfortable for the duration of treatment, making the entire process easy to handle.
What Does ICON™ Laser Hair Reduction Address?
Treatment areas targeted by our hair reduction laser include the face, back, chest, arms, underarms, bikini area, and legs. Your session may last anywhere from 15-30 minutes depending on the size of your treatment area. The exciting thing about the ICON™ is that if your hair does grow back, it will be much finer than before. This benefit coupled with how tolerable laser hair reduction is makes this treatment a great replacement for traditional razor shaving. For the best hair removal for men and women in California, we welcome you to make an appointment today.
How Does the ICON™ Laser Work?
At Coastal Dermatology & Aesthetics, we treat all of our regular patients like close friends. When you arrive at our center, you will be greeted warmly and made to feel at ease. We will take the time to evaluate your skin and make sure it is suited for ICON™ before proceeding. The laser hand piece that will be used against your skin has a chill tip to cool the treatment area before and after the laser pulse. This effect significantly reduces pain and makes the entire 15-30 minute procedure quite tolerable. Most people feel only a slight, momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure.
What Results Can I Expect From Laser Hair Reduction?
After your session is finished, a cold compress will be applied for several minutes to cool your skin down. You may see some initial results right away. However, it usually takes at least three treatments to achieve the best outcome. After your three sessions, you can expect a roughly 79% reduction in hair growth at the treatment site. This laser system will drastically reduce the amount of time and money you spend on shaving and waxing! The ICON™ may even improve the overall appearance of your skin, giving you a fresh, rejuvenated glow!
