At Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine, we use the top of the line Cynosure Icon Laser. It has many uses for laser therapy, and one of the most common uses is Icon laser hair removal. The Icon Laser treatments target and destroy the hair cells responsible for hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin allowing you to skip shaving, plucking, tweezing, and waxing for good!
How it Works
This light-based technology emits gentle pulses of energy into the skin to target and heat hair follicles responsible for growth. The follicle absorbs the energy and is destroyed, unable to produce hair again.
Benefits with Cynosure Icon Laser
Our Icon laser hair removal treatment ensures maximum comfort, leading technology, and the newest innovations to give our clients the best possible experience during and after treatment. With the Icon laser hair removal process you get leading technology such as:
- Advanced Contact Cooling: Increased patient comfort with built-in cooling at the sapphire tip.

Icon Laser Hair Removal Treatment Areas
The Icon laser hair removal device comes with several attachments and makes it one of the most versatile laser hair removal systems on the market. It can cover large areas like chest, back and legs, as well as small areas, like the bikini line and areas of the face. If there is an area that you would like treatment on that isn’t listed here, give us a call to discuss during a consultation. The most common areas for laser hair removal are:
What to Expect with Treatment
A series of 3-6 treatments is recommended for the best results but, every patient is different. Hair naturally grows in 3 different stages. Hair growth is not in the same stage at the same time, so when an area is treated only some of hair follicles will be affected each time. To reduce unwanted hair growth, several treatments are necessary. You can expect to see a gradual decrease in the hair thickness and in the amount of hair present. You may also see a decrease in stubble, rashes, ingrown hairs, and smoother skin! Who doesn’t want that?!
Is it Permanent?
Everyone’s biology is diverse and therefore, their hair is diverse too! Factors like dormant hair follicles, hormones, hair type, and hair color make each result a little different. However, most clients will appear 100% hair free, experience smooth skin, and go years without noticing any new growth. There can be times that hormones effect new hair growth, with a new hair popping up here and there, but treated follicles remain hair free.
If you are tired of endless shaving, waxing, tweezing, stubble, and ingrown hairs, it’s time to consider laser hair removal with Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine.
