Laser Hair Removal Q & A

BellaDerma

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal with Icon uses industry-leading technology to safely and effectively destroy body hair. The system sends waves of laser energy deep down the shaft of targeted hairs. Once those hair follicles heat up, the growth process stops.

Over the following 2-3 weeks, treated hair sheds out. When (and if) hair grows back, it’s finer, lighter, and thinner than ever before. Laser hair removal can drastically decrease the amount of hair that grows in a targeted area, permanently.

Which areas can be treated with laser hair removal?

The Icon aesthetic system is so advanced, it’s safely used for laser hair removal on almost all areas where you have unwanted hair growth. Some of the most common laser hair removal treatment areas include:

  • Jawline, chin, and upper lip
  • Underarms and chest
  • Back or stomach
  • Upper or lower legs
  • Bikini line

 

Because each client at BellaDerma has different needs, the aesthetic team put together personalized laser hair removal packages to help you get the smoother skin you want.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Some areas may be a little more sensitive than others, like your underarms, but you shouldn’t be in pain. It’s often helpful to apply a topical over-the-counter numbing cream before heading into your laser hair removal appointment at BellaDerma, just to help ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible. Any discomfort you do feel is minimal and is often described as tiny rubber bands hitting your skin.

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

Most men and women need about 6-8 treatments, although you’re probably going to notice smoother skin within a few weeks of your very first session at BellaDerma. Laser hair removal is most effective during the anagen phase (growth stage) of your hair growth.

But each individual hair is at a different phase of the growth cycle. For instance, some hair may be at rest in the catagen phase or getting ready to fall out in the telogen phase, which is why you need several laser hair removal sessions.

The aesthetic team at BellaDerma design your custom laser hair removal plan during your consultation. Schedule your appointment through the online scheduler or over the phone.
