Hair Removal Q & A

How does hair removal work?

At Symphony Medical Spa, Dr. Forbes and her team use the ICON laser to gently remove the hair on your body. While shaving, waxing, and plucking are all reliable hair-removal methods, hair removal with the ICON laser yields long-lasting results without many of their complications. 

The powerful light from the laser targets, heats, and destroys the follicles that hold and grow your body hair. After a few treatments, you’ll enjoy a permanent reduction in your hair growth. 

You may need to come back for maintenance treatments after several months, but overall you’ll have less body hair.

What areas can I target with hair removal?

You can remove the hair from nearly any part of your body. Smooth and hairless skin is achievable on your:

  • Arms 
  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Bikini area
  • Face (e.g. lips and chin)
  • Neck

With laser hair removal, you can target the areas that you spend the most time shaving and waxing. At your consultation, Dr. Forbes assesses your goals and creates a strategy to meet them.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

When choosing a method for hair removal, you have many factors to consider. Laser hair removal treatments have the advantage over shaving, waxing, and plucking your hair because:

  • You won’t get razor burn
  • You’ll have fewer bumps and ingrown hairs
  • The results are long-lasting
  • Your hair grows back lighter and more sparse
  • The process is painless

You can get laser hair removal treatments with ICON regardless of the color and texture of your hair and skin. Over time, laser hair removal is more cost-effective than constantly buying razors and waxes that you must use weekly.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser hair removal is gentle and effective, but there are a few side effects you may experience after your treatment with ICON. Laser hair removal can cause:

  • Redness
  • Irritation
  • Tingling sensation
  • Skin crusting
  • Minor color changes
  • Injury to your eyes (if you get the treatment near them)

Any side effects that you get should go away within a few hours of your treatment. If your side effects last longer or are more severe, call Dr. Forbes as soon as possible. 

Hair removal in some form is likely a part of your daily or weekly routine. For hair removal with the ICON laser that lasts for months, call Symphony Medical Spa or book your appointment online today.
