Hair Removal Q & A

Colorado Family Medicine

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal is one of the most common aesthetic procedures in the United States, and the Icon Laser Aesthetic System by Cynosure delivers outstanding results to permanently slow hair growth so you don’t have to shave every day or wax every few weeks. The Icon system provides permanent hair reduction so you no longer have to deal with the hassles of unwanted facial and body hair.

The Icon laser uses light-based technology to target and destroy hair cells that are responsible for new hair growth so they can no longer function. As it damages the individual hair follicles, the laser energy doesn’t harm your skin, so it’s a safe way to remove unwanted hair. The Icon is FDA-cleared as safe and effective for both men and women wanting the advantage of smoother, hair-free skin.

What areas can the Icon laser treat for hair removal?

You can get laser hair removal with the Icon laser on your:

  • Legs
  • Face
  • Underarms/arms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Bikini line

Each treatment is quick, simple, and the effects are long-lasting. The Icon works on all skin colors and almost all hair types. During this in-office treatment, there is minimal discomfort and little or no downtime at all.

How many treatments will I need?

Depending on the results you desire and the areas being treated, you may need a few laser hair removal sessions for the best results. The doctors at Colorado Family Medicine take time to discuss your goals and explain how many treatments you’ll need for an optimal outcome. Many adults see results after just one or two treatment sessions, but everyone is different, so the doctors recommend the ideal number of treatments for your individual needs.

What can I expect at my laser hair removal appointment?

You lie down comfortably in the treatment room, and the doctor gives you protective eyewear. The Icon laser has a built-in cooling system to keep your skin comfortable. Most men and women tolerate the laser energy without issue.

During the treatment, the doctor directs the pulses of laser energy to the targeted area of your skin using the handheld device. She moves the device around the treatment area until all hair follicles are treated. For smaller areas, it takes just a few minutes, or for larger areas of your body, like legs, it can take up to an hour.
