What Is Laser Hair Removal?

At Naturallyou, Terry Conrad uses the Palomar Icon® laser for hair reduction treatments. This state-of-the-art technology offers a number of advantages compared to traditional laser hair reduction treatments, which tend to work best on people with naturally dark hair pigments and fair complexions.  The Palomar Icon has advanced hair removal technology, making it possible to eradicate unwanted hair and inhibit new growth in virtually all patients.  The vast majority of women and men can benefit from this updated laser hair removal technology which offers a safe and effective method for eliminating hair in all areas of the body including:

  • Legs
  • Face
  • Bikini line
  • The male chest
  • Back
  • Underarms

Even patients with sensitive or darker skin can undergo laser hair removal with the Icon system because the technology allows adjustments for skin tone and melanin density. This is a wonderful breakthrough for patients who had previously been told they weren’t good candidates for traditional laser hair removal treatments.

What to Expect

Women and men opt for Icon laser system hair removal treatments can do so knowing they will experience minimal discomfort. Some patients describe the sensation during treatment as similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. To ease that minimal discomfort, Terry and her team often apply a topical anesthetic to numb the target area.

During treatment, Terry uses a handheld laser device with a smooth glass surface to carefully pinpoint and direct light energy toward desired treatment areas on the body. The light beams heat individual hair follicles so pigments in the hair can absorb this energy. This process destroys the follicle, thus preventing future hair growth. Depending on the size of the treatment site, the procedure may take 15 to 30 minutes.

Many of Terry’s patients love this procedure because it’s a relatively painless way to transform how they eliminate unwanted hair. There’s no downtime and patients can even return to work or other activities immediately following treatment. While the skin may appear slightly flushed and feel a bit sore for a day or so, the discomfort is usually quite minimal.

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular treatments for both men and women at Naturallyou in Greenwich, CT. Here are some things to know about the procedure:

  • Even though laser hair reduction is often called laser hair removal, the treatment doesn’t completely remove all hair in the area targeted. While incredibly effective, you still may have some nominal hair growth in treated areas.
  • For this reason, a series of treatment sessions are recommended for optimal results. Because hair grows in cycles, not all follicles will be in an active growth phase during a single procedure. Treatment sessions should therefore be spaced several weeks apart.
  • Patients should avoid direct sun exposure to minimize unnecessary irritation.
  • Shaving between treatments is permitted, but patients should avoid waxing, plucking, and other hair removal methods that involve pulling at the hair’s root. After all planned treatments have concluded a return to waxing, tweezing and shaving is fine to keep skin looking pristine and free of any stray unwanted hairs.

Women and men seeking modern laser hair removal treatments travel from Stamford and throughout Connecticut to Naturallyou. You can request an appointment using the online form or call our office at (203) 340-9998 to schedule an appointment.
