Summer is right around the corner! If you’re anything like me, the idea of constantly shaving and waxing your unwanted facial and body hair is a daunting task.
With light-based laser hair removal, we can treat most areas of the body including the face, underarms, arms, legs, back, bikini and chest. Cynosure Icon Laser Hair Removal has the industry’s ONLY Skintel melanin reader. This advanced technology measures the skin’s melanin index at each treatment. This is used to determine the ideal setting for each individual patient. This increases the safety and results for each treatment.
Before Icon Laser Hair Removal you will need to avoid the sun in the area being treated. This means staying out of direct sunlight and no tanning beds in the month leading up to your procedure. This treatment is safe for most skin types and most hair colors, although fair skin and dark hair has the best results. You will need to shave the treatment area the night before or the day of. It sounds a little counterintuitive, but it actually helps us get more precise results as we’re targeting the hair follicle, not the hair on the surface. Also, avoid waxing or plucking the month before your treatment. It doesn’t matter how tired I am one night or how late I’m running in the morning, my skin care routines are non negotiable.
After Laser Hair Removal continue to avoid plucking, waxing or hair removal creams. Keep your skin protected. No tanning beds, and minimal direct sun exposure. Use broad spectrum sunscreen, and stay out of the sun all together if you can. You will need more than one treatment for optimal results. Hair grows in cycles, and at any given time, different hairs on your body may be in different points of a cycle. To treat hair follicles in the active phases you will need a series of several treatments for best results.
