Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Unlike temporary hair removal options like tweezing, shaving, and waxing, laser hair removal targets the source of hair growth: the follicle.

Your hair follicle is located in the lowest part of your dermis, right above your fatty tissue. Laser hair removal concentrates focused beams at your follicle. As the light is absorbed, the follicle is damaged, and hair growth is reduced or eliminated.

Areas that respond well to laser hair removal include:

  • Lips, chin, and face
  • Fingers and hands
  • Toes and feet
  • Underarms and arms
  • Shoulders and back
  • Areolas and chest
  • Bikini area

Laser hair removal doesn’t damage any of your surrounding skin.

What’s the advantage of using the Icon Aesthetic System for hair removal?

Dr. Kenneson and her team at Bluewater Urology Associates pride themselves in offering the most modern innovations, including the Icon Aesthetic System for laser hair removal.

An effective laser hair removal tool for both men and women, the Icon system boasts state-of-the-art cooling, advanced power, and the Skintel® Melanin Reader™, which guarantees the best results for every skin type.

What can I expect during my laser hair removal appointment?

The duration of your laser hair treatment at Bluewater Urology Associates will vary depending on the size of the area you’re treating.

Because of the advanced design of the Icon Aesthetic System, your discomfort should be minimal. Some people experience a gentle pinch, but for others, it can feel like a snapping rubber band.

When your treatment is complete, you might experience mild swelling and redness similar to a mild sunburn. These symptoms fade within 24 hours. Some hair may be removed immediately, while others appear to continue growing. This is due to your body eliminating the dead hairs from your body.

To ensure the best results, Dr. Kenneson and her team at Bluewater Urology Associates recommend several laser hair removal sessions to guarantee that the hair follicle is permanently destroyed. Touch-up sessions can also be scheduled to make sure you achieve ideal results.
