Learn More About Why Laser Hair Removal Has Become So Popular

Are you tired of spending a significant amount of time and effort removing unwanted hair by shaving, waxing or tweezing? Fortunately, there’s an option for long-lasting hair removal. The highly trained practitioners at Evia Medical Center in Smithtown, New York, provide laser hair removal with the Icon® laser system. Keep reading to learn about this convenient, effective, and safe treatment.

Convenient and quick

Removing unwanted hair in more traditional ways can be time consuming. Daily shaving, a constant stream of appointments for waxing, messy and semi-effective chemicals and creams, and tedious tweezing can all eat into your schedule and your savings.

With laser hair removal, treatment is fast and results are long lasting. One session of laser hair removal can last from just a couple of minutes to an hour depending on the size of the treatment area.

You’ll only need 2-6 treatments to get results that can last for years. With less time spent worried about unwanted hair, you’ll have more time for other things.

You also won’t have to worry about some of the side effects of removing your own hair, such as dry skin, razor bumps, ingrown hairs, and painful waxing. Instead, you’ll have smooth, attractive skin you can show off to the world.

Highly effective technology

The Icon laser system uses intense pulsed light therapy, an industry-leading technology that is extremely effective and customizable. It works on all skin types and tones.

Intense pulsed light therapy works by flashing light energy into hair follicles, thus damaging the follicles and hindering future hair growth. While the treatment takes place, surrounding tissues are undamaged.

Results can last for several months or even years. Any hair that grows back will be finer and lighter than before.

The Icon laser’s advanced technology can remove unwanted hair in numerous areas, including your face, arms, underarms, legs, back, and bikini area.

Safe treatments with no downtime

For your treatment, we’ll provide you with glasses to shield your eyes from the light energy, and we’ll use a cooling device to maximize your comfort. Intense pulsed light therapy is noninvasive and requires no sedation. This means you’ll have no downtime after a hair removal session, and your treated skin won’t have any surgical scarring.

During your treatment, you may feel a slight stinging similar to the snapping of a rubber band. After treatment, your skin may be red and feel as though it has a mild sunburn, but it won’t prevent you from going about your daily activities as normal.

If you’re ready to spend less time and effort removing your unwanted hair, book an appointment online or over the phone with Evia Medical Center today.
