If you spend countless hours in a never-ending battle to get rid of unwanted body hair through shaving, waxing, and plucking, we have just the solution you’re looking for — laser hair removal.
At Renew Aesthetic Medicine and Wellness, our goal is to provide our Southborough, Massachusetts, clients with the most innovative products and services available to make their lives a little more beautiful, and simple. One service that’s particularly popular is our Icon™ laser hair removal system, which eliminates body hair by tackling it at its source.
And if you start your laser hair removal treatments now, you’ll be done with shaving by summer.
The laser difference
Laser treatments in the cosmetic field are continually evolving as the technology is refined, allowing us to address an increasing number of cosmetic issues with precisely controlled laser energy. Such is the case with hair removal. With the Icon system, we deliver laser energy into the pigment in your hair follicles, which heats up and destroys the source of your unwanted body hair. And these follicles don’t come back.
What really makes this technology unique is the fact that we can deliver this laser energy without harming the surface area of your skin, which means it’s safe to use almost anywhere on your body, including your:
- Bikini line
The only place where we steer clear from using a laser is around your eyes.
A coordinated effort
The reason why we recommend that you start now to remove your unwanted hair is that our laser hair removal process takes a little bit of time, but your patience is rewarded with hair-free skin in just a few months.
At any given time, your hair is in one of three stages:
- Anagen, the active growth phase
- Catagen, the transitional stage
- Telogen, the resting phase
This means that not all of your hair is active at any given time, which is why we space out your laser hair removal treatments by several weeks to allow time for all of your hair to present itself. As the hair comes “on-line,” we’re at the ready with our Icon system to stop it in its tracks.
Over the course of several treatments, we methodically tackle all of the follicles in your treatment area, leaving you with silky smooth skin.
What to expect
There isn’t too much you need to do to prepare for your laser hair removal except refrain from waxing your unwanted body hair. It’s important that we’re able to easily visualize your hair follicles, so we ask that you stick to shaving (which only breaks the hair at its shaft) while you go through your treatments. You might also make your hair removal go a little easier if you also refrain from tanning, which can camouflage your follicles in dark skin.
The treatments themselves take only minutes and you’re free to get on with your day directly afterward. Once you’ve completed the full course of laser hair removal sessions, go ahead and throw away your razors, cancel your standing waxing appointment, and head out into the world with your hair- and hassle-free skin.
If you’d like to get started on hair removal now so that you’re ready by summer, please give us a call or use the online scheduling tool on this website to get started.
