Having excessive amounts of unwanted body hair can have the effect of making us feel terribly self-conscious. While shaving is usually the go-to solution for most, the consequences of traditional hair removal can be quite unpleasant. Razor burn and the irritation caused by waxing can be difficult to deal with. If you’re tired of having rough, irritated skin at the end of your shaving routine, a laser hair removal treatment may be a great choice. At Marlowe MD, we’re happy to provide you with our powerful laser ICON system. This specialized, multi-functional laser is made to offer fast hair removal results and long-lasting smoothness.
What Causes Unwanted Body Hair?
Unwanted body hair concentration varies widely from individual to individual and is determined by personal hormone levels. Androgens are the culprit hormones responsible for the density of body hair after puberty. Your androgen quantity can make the appearance of hair thicker, courser, and more prominent.
Those with extra sensitive skin and high levels of androgens are particularly vulnerable to irritation and discomfort. In particular, if you have sensitive skin and your hair is on the thicker side, shaving it may cause red bumps, burns, and other frustrating side effects.
Unwanted Body Hair Removal With ICON
The ICON laser system is a revolutionary device that has the capability of cooling the skin while performing unwanted body hair removal using two laser wavelengths. The ICON’s MaxR handpiece features a large tip and provides exceptional surface area coverage, resulting in shorter treatment times. The MaxY is used for finer or lighter hair removal and offers expert precision control.
When you come in for a consultation at our Sarasota, Florida practice, we will discuss your specific hair type and customize your ICON laser session to best meet your needs.
Hair Removal Results
A typical unwanted body hair removal session with the ICON takes just minutes for small areas and about a half-hour for larger areas. Depending on your hair color and quantity, several sessions may be needed for the best results. When you come in for your consultation, we will help tailor a plan just for you. You do not need to let your hair grow out between treatment sessions. ICON treatments are non-invasive and generally tolerable. The handpiece’s chill tip cools the skin before and after the laser pulse which significantly reduces pain. Most of our patients report feeling only a slight, momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure. After your treatment, you can expect long term hair reduction.
