Laser Hair Reduction Q & A

Cleveland Family Health

How does laser hair removal work?

The team at Cleveland Family Health uses the latest in laser hair removal technology with the innovative Icon™ laser. This versatile laser provides optimal hair reduction in a wide range of treatment areas.

The Icon laser is a powerful light-based treatment that works by delivering heat to the hair follicles beneath the layers of the skin. The heat disrupts the hair follicle and prevents future growth. Icon laser hair reduction treatments allow for treatment of targeted areas without damaging the surrounding skin, making it appropriate for both face and body.

Cleveland Family Health provides laser hair reduction for treatment areas including:

  • Face
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Bikini area
  • Underarms

Because the treatments target hair that is actively growing (not in the dormant stage), a series of treatments is required as the new hair emerges. The Icon laser is appropriate for all skin types, hair textures, and hair colors.  

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Icon laser hair reduction treatments offer patients minimal discomfort with optimal, long-lasting results.

The procedure is not painful, especially compared to traditional hair removal methods such as waxing and electrolysis. Some patients have reported feeling a light prickling sensation during treatments. The Icon laser is designed to ensure comfort and expert results.

Previously, some laser hair removal techniques were not suitable for certain hair or skin colors, causing a risk of burning or irritation. However, the Icon laser can safely be used on all hair and skin combinations.

What type of results can I expect?

You’ll begin to see a gradual reduction of your hair’s thickness after your first treatment. Because the Icon laser targets hair that is actively growing, you’ll need follow-up treatments to reach hair that was previously in the dormant stage. Multiple treatment sessions help ensure more lasting results.

The Icon laser is highly versatile and can be customized to your skin type to prevent burning or discoloration. Laser hair reduction is a noninvasive procedure and requires no downtime, allowing you to resume normal activities immediately. Treatment sessions can be done in as few as 30 minutes.
