To learn more, we welcome you to schedule a consultation here in Bridgewater, MA.
What Causes Unwanted Hair?
The amount of unwanted hair on your body is mainly determined by your genetics and hormone levels. The hormones responsible for your hair quantity are called androgens. These hormones control the density of body hair after we reach puberty and are more active in men. The more androgens you have, the thicker, darker, and more visible your hair will be. For those who have sensitive skin, having an excessive amount of body hair can cause quite a bit of skin irritation. At Horizons Health & Wellness, we provide a laser hair reduction treatment that can effectively eliminate unwanted body hair without aggressive irritation.
What Are the Signs?
Along with having too much hair, you may also experience ingrown hairs, blackheads, and redness, especially if you have sensitive skin. Hair regrowth after shaving can be especially itchy and uncomfortable for those with these types of issues. If you rarely shave because of the discomfort that traditional shaving causes, our ICON™ laser hair reduction may be just the right choice for you. Treatments with this device are performed with precision and care to ensure you get the great results you want without downtime.
How Do We Remove Unwanted Hair?
Our ICON™ laser hair reduction system uses a gradual heating process, damaging your hair follicles at their source without injuring the surrounding skin. During the treatment, a laser handpiece is used against your skin. This handpiece has a chill tip to cool the treatment area before and after the laser pulse. This effect significantly reduces discomfort 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.
