Laser Hair Removal at Houston Oculofacial
You can achieve effective and permanent hair reduction with the Icon system. All you need is a handful of treatments and you will notice a significant change in your body-hair growth.
The results of laser hair removal are longer-lasting than the results provided by shaving or waxing. Hair regrowth begins to occur within a few days when shaved and after a couple weeks when waxed.
You no longer have to deal with unwanted hairs on your face and body with Icon’s light-based technology, which targets and destroys hair cells responsible for hair growth while protecting the surrounding skin. The technology has been approved by the TGA for use on different types of skin. It is a fast and simple treatment that takes only minutes to complete.
Icon laser hair removal works best for removing hair from larger areas. It is an extremely comfortable treatment that requires practically no downtime.
Good Candidates for Laser Hair Removal
Women over the age of 12 commonly seek hair-removal treatments. It has also grown in popularity among men who want to remove hair from their chests and backsides.
Using Icon hair-removal treatment provides a number of advantages:
• It is useful in removing dark and coarse hair.
• After three to seven sessions, you may notice permanent hair removal.
• Each pulse of the laser takes just a second and can treat several hairs at the same time. The upper-lip area can be treated under a minute, and larger areas like the back/legs may take around an hour.
How to Prepare
Refrain from plucking/waxing/electrolysis for six weeks before the treatment. Laser hair removal targets the roots of the hair, which is removed temporarily by plucking or waxing.
Also, try to stay away from the sun six weeks before and after the treatment, as sun exposure can lower the effectiveness of laser hair removal and increase your chance of infection afterward.
When deciding to get the Icon laser hair-removal treatment, choose experienced medical professional Dr. Mirwat Sami, as it is a risky procedure that requires a certain skill set.
The Treatment Procedure
Hair to be treated will be trimmed to a few millimeter’s lengths before the procedure. The equipment to be used will be adjusted according to your hair’s color, thickness, and location, as well as your skin color.
A cold gel or cooling device will be used on your skin to facilitate the laser light penetration into your skin. Ice packs, anti-inflammatory lotions, or cold water may be used on your skin after the treatment to soothe any pain. It will take up to a month for the procedure to manifest its desired results.
