At Horizons Health and Wellness, we use the ICON™ laser hair reduction system to help you get the smooth, hairless results you crave. The ICON™ allows for the removal of unwanted hair from the face, arms, underarms, back, chest, legs & bikini zone in a safe and effective manner. Laser hair removal makes shaving and waxing obsolete in as little as 5-7 sessions. Any additional hair growth that comes in will be finer, lighter, and far less noticeable. If you are tired of constantly shaving and/or waxing, schedule a consultation today to get started.
How Does Laser Hair Reduction Work?
Unlike shaving or waxing, laser hair removal uses intense heat to damage individual hair follicles. By damaging the hair follicles in this way, future hair growth is inhibited. Even though the ICON™ laser uses heat to target these follicles, we will apply a topical numbing cream to cool your skin. This will help to minimize any discomfort you might feel during your treatment. Best of all, there is no damage at all to the surrounding skin. Compared to traditional hair removal methods, laser hair removal can lead to superior results. Light-based hair reduction is safe and recommended for nearly all areas of the body including the face, arms, back, underarms, legs, chest and the bikini area.
What Can I Expect During ICON™ Laser Hair Reduction?
After we create your custom treatment plan during your initial consultation, you will come back to our Bridgewater, MA location for your first treatment. We can apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment areas so that your experience will be comfortable. We also offer Nitronox (laughing gas) if needed to help you relax. You will then lie down on a treatment table as we do several passes with the ICON™ laser handpiece on the predetermined areas of your body. The passes will work to damage each individual hair follicle. This treatment feels like rubber bands snapping against your skin. Once the procedure is over, you will be able to return to your regular routine immediately. There is no downtime. We recommend avoiding activities that heat the skin immediately after treatment, such as hot showers, hot tubs, jacuzzis, and intense exercise. Avoiding direct sunlight is critically important for any laser-treated skin.
What Can I Expect From The Results?
Laser hair reduction is quick, effective and has very few side effects. You may begin to see results after one short session, although several treatments are recommended for optimal, long-lasting results. When you come in for your initial consultation, we may recommend 5-7 sessions, depending on the amount of hair you want to remove. The side effects are no worse than the redness, itching and cuts you would receive from shaving or waxing. Most people experience some side effects after treatment including a sunburn-like sensation and some minor swelling that resolves within a few hours.
