What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most effective long-term hair removal methods. It works by targeting and destroying the cells responsible for hair growth so that they can no longer produce hair. At Anh Vu, M.D., we use the Cynosure® ICON laser for hair removal. This laser is safe and precise, preserving the health of the surrounding skin. This laser is controlled enough to use on most areas of the body, including the bikini line.
How is Laser Hair Removal Administered?
With the ICON laser, laser hair removal is safely administered using the ICON handpiece. Patients will wear protective eyewear if it is used near the face. A laser hair removal session is performed in a matter of minutes, and is quite comfortable, thanks to the contact cooling technology of the ICON laser.
What Can I Expect After My Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
Most patients will need a series of laser hair removal treatments to fully minimize future hair growth. However, the ICON laser works faster than most lasers, and offers full results in fewer treatments than its competitors. Patients may experience some redness after treatment, but this typically fades within a few days of treatment. Results from laser hair removal are permanent.
