Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a treatment to reduce hair growth in a targeted area long-term. The most popular areas of the body for laser hair removal are:

  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Bikini line
  • Upper lip
  • Back

If you've got an area on your body you're tired of constantly shaving or waxing ICON™ laser hair removal or intense pulsed light hair removal at Beau MedSpa might be the perfect choice for you.

How does hair removal work?

The laser hair removal options at Beau MedSpa include:

IPL

IPL treatment is an alternative to laser hair removal. The IPL device sends pulses of light, which turn into heat once inside your hair root. This heat prompts your hair to go into a resting phase, and it then dies off.

You'll shed the hair naturally in the coming weeks. Because the hair root itself sustained damage from the heat, hair regrowth there is inhibited. IPL uses broad-spectrum light instead of focused laser light.

ICON laser

The ICON is a highly precise laser that destroys the root of the hair without impacting the healthy skin around it. As with IPL, it takes some time to shed the targeted hair once it dies off. ICON is unique because it can work for all skin tones, while older laser hair removal systems don’t work for very light or very dark skin.

The ICON laser is powerful and fast, which allows faster treatments than with older laser hair removal systems.

How long do hair removal results last?

Most patients see permanent hair reduction in the targeted treatment areas after IPL or laser hair removal. The longevity of hair removal can vary with hair color and hair type. For example, coarse hair and dark hair tend to grow back more often than fine and light-colored hair.

You might see some very mild hair regrowth in the future, but if you do, the hair will be much lighter and finer. Most patients only need to have maintenance visits once or twice each year.

How many treatments do I need for hair removal?

Most patients get the very best results with a series of treatments, each about one month apart. You may need anywhere from a few treatments up to a dozen treatments to get the results you want.
