Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is the Icon Aesthetic System laser?

The Icon Aesthetic System laser is an advanced system that treats a number of aesthetic conditions, from unwanted hair to wrinkles to stretch marks. The Icon laser is equipped with innovative systems that improve the quality of aesthetic care and provide you with an array of options to fix your beauty concerns without discomfort.

How does laser treatment remove hair?

Laser hair removal is a noninvasive treatment that uses targeted energy to damage and destroy your pigmented hair follicle to prevent the growth of future hair. Because the laser can only work on follicles that are growing hair, you may need three to four treatments spread out over a period of time to get the best results.

The team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine will provide you with an individualized treatment plan so you know what to expect and how many laser hair removal treatments you need to get the results you want.

What can I expect during laser hair removal treatment?

Laser hair removal is a fairly painless procedure that doesn’t typically require any numbing agent. However, if you’re sensitive to pain, let the team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine know so they can make your treatment as painless as possible.

During treatment, the Icon laser is equipped with the MaxR™, which is a special tool that optimizes light energy to provide targeted treatment. The MaxR works on all skin types, including tanned skin, and can treat larger areas of unwanted hair, including the legs, back, and chest fairly quickly.

You may experience some swelling or redness after treatment, but these symptoms don’t last long.

Is the hair gone for good?

The Icon laser treatment at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine can permanently remove unwanted hair to give you smoother skin and your desired look.

However, due to the hair growth cycle, you may continue to grow small amounts of hair in the treated area after you’ve completed Icon hair removal laser treatment. The team can provide touch up hair removal as needed to tackle the hair stragglers and keep your skin smooth and hair free.
