Permanent laser hair removal with Icon

With our leading laser hair removal treatment, you can have the smooth, touchable skin you’ve always wanted. Our treatment targets and destroys the hair cells responsible for hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin. The result is smooth, hair-free skin that lasts!

How does it work

Our trained aestheticians use a specially designed handpiece that pulses laser energy to target and destroys the cells in your hair follicles that are responsible for hair growth, without harming the surrounding skin. It’s a fast and easy approach to permanent hair reduction that’s FDA-cleared.

Laser treatments use heat to reduce and even destroy the ability of hair to grow. A beam of light from a laser heats up hair follicles down to their root, impeding their ability to regrow as before. With the beam focusing on a smaller target area, each session with this laser delivers optimized attention to the unwanted hair, delivering the most effective treatment.

Safe, natural and effective for everyone

Icon is for everyone. Icon works equally well on all ages, skin and hair types – black, brunette, blonde, red, grey, white or fine hair. The light is attracted to pigment, so it focuses on the darker hair rather than damaging your surrounding skin. Because the Icon beam is so specific even the lightest, finest hair can be targeted.

This internationally-patented system offers permanent hair reduction for the body, face and intimate areas. Smaller areas like the upper lip may take only a couple of minutes to treat. Larger areas like the back can take about 20 minutes.

The treatment includes a formulation helps to nourish and soften the skin.

Does it hurt?

Most patients report a mild snapping sensation as the laser cycles through the treatment. You may also have the sensation of a mild sunburn and experience slight inflammation in the treatment area after the procedure. Both generally fade quickly.

Will I need more than one treatment?

Yes, because hair grows in phases. Not all follicles have hair all the time.  Laser is only applied to hair follicles in the active growth phase, so it’s impossible to target all your hair in one visit. For hair that is in the growth phase (anagen), the heat will damage it in such a way that it will not grow back the same.

Most clients see the best results with several treatments that are spaced a few weeks apart. We will work with you to tailor a treatment plan that meets your needs and expectations.

Time between treatments is based on rate of hair growth and that varies depending on the person and the part of the body.  For best results, the treatment should be done when the remaining hair has regrown back to between 2.5 mm (1/8″) and 5.0 mm (1/4″) in length.

Can I suntan after my treatment?

The inflammation that sometimes accompanies laser hair removal can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. You should exercise the usual sun precautions by avoiding prolonged exposure and using sunscreen.
