Laser Hair Reduction Q & A

How Effective is Laser Hair Removal?

The type of laser or light technology contributes to the effectiveness of laser hair removal. Shelly and her team of aesthetic specialists use the Icon™ Aesthetic System by Cynosure®. The Icon laser is a fast, simple approach to permanent hair removal that’s FDA-cleared and can be used on nearly every area of your body including:

  • Face
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area

This light-based technology is effective on nearly every hair color. It targets your hair follicles to permanently inhibit hair growth without damaging your skin, so you no longer need to shave, tweeze, or wax.*

What Can I Expect During a Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

During your laser hair removal appointment, Shelly or one of the technicians uses the handheld device to treat a specific area. You feel a slight snap of thermal energy as it reaches the hair follicles below your skin. Some adults compare it to the snapping of a rubber band. The feeling is temporary, and depending on the area you have treated, the procedure lasts anywhere from a few minutes to an hour.

You may request a topical numbing cream to minimize any discomfort, and you can resume your daily activities immediately following a laser hair removal session. Your skin may appear red like a mild sunburn, but any discomfort is temporary and usually returns to normal in a day or two.

Depending on your skin color, hair color, and area being treated, you may need several sessions for the best results. With this laser hair removal system, there’s no need to let your hair grow between treatments.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

If the thought of not having to shave, wax, or tweeze hair on a regular basis is appealing, you may be a good candidate for laser hair removal. Since the Icon laser works on all skin colors and most hair colors, it’s an ideal treatment for nearly anyone desiring permanent hair reduction.

The best way to find out if laser hair removal can help you accomplish your aesthetic goals is to call or schedule a consultation online with the knowledgeable team at Pure Skin Aesthetic & Laser Center. They answer all of your questions, so you know what to expect before, during, and after treatments.

Sciton 1064 Scanner 

Sciton designed the 1064 Scanner for fast treatments by giving it a high repetition rate and a large scanned area. These integrated features enable each treatment to be executed rapidly, evenly and safely on patient skin. 

The Sciton 1064 Scanner utilizes a Large Area Pattern Generator (LAPG) high-speed scanner and non-sequential energy delivery to achieve optimal clinical outcomes comfortably. In addition, the computer guided scanner can adjust from a single spot to a 30 mm x 30 mm scanned area to accommodate treatment locations from an upper lip to full face and neck. 
The computer-guided, high-speed LAPG scanner treats small to large areas rapidly and evenly. By allowing a maximum time interval between adjacent spots, heat can dissipate, minimizing subsurface heat build-up to provide additional comfort and safety during treatment. 

No Downtime 

Patients have virtually no downtime and may resume daily activity immediately following treatment.
