If you’re tired of shaving, waxing, plucking, the smell and sting of depilatory creams, or wasting your money on hair removal gadgets that never seem to work, it’s time to consider laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is a safe and often permanent solution to unwanted hair anywhere on the body.

Unlike temporary hair removal options, laser hair removal reduces regrowth of hair over time. Hair treated with the Icon™ laser system at New Life Wellness and Medical Spa can potentially last years.
If you’re struggling with unwanted hair growth caused by genetic, metabolic, or hormonal disorders, laser hair removal may be a solution. Icon laser hair removal uses a burst of light that damages hair follicles and prohibits regrowth.
You may have heard that laser hair removal is effective only on darker hair or lighter skin, but with today’s advanced laser hair removal systems that simply isn’t true. Laser hair removal is effective for patients with all hair and skin types.
Because multiple sessions may be required for some patients, your doctor will construct an individualized treatment plan to help you achieve optimal results.
Prior to your session, avoid the sun and the tanning bed. You should also avoid waxing and electrolysis, two treatments which remove hair directly from the hair’s root.
On the day of the treatment do not use any creams, perfumes, or deodorants, in order to reduce the risk of irritation.
During the session, your doctor uses the Icon laser hand-held device to deliver pulses of light that target hair follicles. You may feel a quick burst of heat during pulses, but discomfort is minimal. The treatment length can vary depending on the area being treated; smaller areas on the face could take only a few minutes to treat.
After treatment your skin may be sensitive, so your doctor may suggest applying ice or a topical treatment to reduce discomfort and protect your skin from sun and irritation.
The results of Icon laser hair removal treatments vary from person to person, but visible results are immediate. When hair regrowth appears it’s lighter, finer, and less dense. Most patients need several treatments to see permanently smooth results from laser hair removal.
