Laser Hair Removal Q & A
What is Icon laser hair removal?
The state-of-the-art Icon laser is made by the company Cynosure using revolutionary technology that destroys unwanted hair without damaging the surrounding skin. After treatment, you experience smooth, hair-free skin that lasts.
How does laser hair removal work?
The Icon laser beam’s highly concentrated light energy focuses directly into treated hair follicles. The pigment in these follicles absorbs the light, which effectively destroys the hair. You experience a reduction in hair growth, and oftentimes hair ceases to grow entirely.
What areas can be treated with the Icon laser?
Just about anywhere on your body where you have unwanted hair can be treated with the Icon laser. This includes the:
- Bikini line

Does laser hair removal hurt?
Most people tolerate the laser treatments quite well. You may feel some tingling or snapping during a session, but cooling gels and creams may be offered to ease any discomfort. Treatment times are relatively short, lasting 5-60 minutes depending on the area addressed. You can have multiple areas treated in one appointment, too.
How many treatments will I need?
You need between three and six treatments to achieve optimal results from laser hair removal. Your hair grows in three stages and unfortunately, all of your hairs are not in the same growth stage at any given treatment session. Multiple sessions ensure that all of your hair follicles are treated at the ideal time to effectively reduce unwanted hair.
Does Icon hair removal work for everyone?
Most skin types – ranging from light to medium – and darker hair colors respond best to hair removal with the Icon laser. Renew Aesthetic Medicine and Wellness can help you understand exactly what results you can expect from treatment.
You may experience a total loss of hair from certain areas or at the very least a decrease in hair thickness and the amount of hair present. You’ll also struggle less with stubble, rashes, and ingrown hairs.
