Laser Hair Removal Q&A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a type of hair reduction that uses powerful light energy to permanently damage your hair follicles to prevent hair from returning. At Belle Aesthetics, the experienced aesthetics team uses the FDA-approved and state-of-the-art Cynosure Icon system for laser hair removal because of its industry-leading innovations and high patient satisfaction rating.

What are the different areas for laser hair removal?

The Icon laser eliminates unwanted hair in your:

  • Upper lip

  • Underarms

  • Arms

  • Legs

  • Back

  • Chest

  • Bikini area

Laser hair removal is safe and effective for nearly any area, except for the eye area.

What is the laser hair treatment like?

You relax in a comfortable position while wearing goggles to shield your eyes. Your Belle Aesthetics care provider uses the Icon's Skintel® Melanin Reader™ to determine melanin density in the treatment area before treatment begins, allowing them to use the optimal laser settings for you.

The Icon laser bypasses your surface skin, causing no damage because it seeks the melanin inside the hair bulbs. Your melanin absorbs the laser light and then breaks apart. This permanently damages your hair bulb and prevents regrowth.

Your whole treatment takes only a few minutes for small areas such as the upper lip and around half an hour for bigger areas like the chest. There’s no downtime at all.

What does laser hair removal feel like?

Icon laser hair removal is typically well-tolerated thanks to Advanced Contact Cooling™. The sapphire-tipped treatment wand delivers continual chilling to relieve warmth as the laser works below your skin.

You might feel some small snaps during laser pulses, but most patients say the treatment isn’t painful.

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

Your hair grows in phases and the best phase for laser hair removal is the anagen, or active growth, phase when you have maximum melanin to target. All of your hair isn't in the same growth phase at once, which is why it typically takes a series of sessions to completely clear unwanted hair.

Most patients get the desired results in 3-6 sessions. Your Belle Aesthetics care provider customizes the ideal plan for you.
