How Does ICON Hair Removal Work?

The ICON Hair Removal treatment utilizes advanced light-based technology to deliver gentle pulses of energy into the skin. The specialized laser targets and heats the hair follicles responsible for hair growth. As the follicles absorb the energy, they are selectively destroyed, preventing future hair growth.

Safe and Effective Hair Removal

The ICON laser is designed with advanced safety features to ensure a precise and controlled treatment. The laser is set to a specific wavelength that selectively targets the colored pigments in the hair follicle while preserving the surrounding skin. This allows for safe and effective hair removal without causing harm or damage to the surrounding tissues.

The ICON Procedure - What to Expect

The duration of laser hair removal in Thousand Oaks varies depending on the treated area. Most individuals tolerate the treatment well, but for added comfort, a numbing cream can be applied prior to the procedure. During the treatment, you may feel a mild sensation of heat or tingling as the laser energy is delivered to the hair follicles. After the treatment, you may experience temporary redness and swelling, similar to a sunburn-like appearance. These side effects typically subside within a few days, and you can resume your regular activities immediately.

Why Do You Need More than One Treatment?

Hair growth occurs in cycles, with each hair follicle going through different phases. Laser hair removal is most effective during the active growth phase of the hair follicles. Since not all hair follicles are active at the same time, multiple treatment sessions are necessary to target and eliminate a significant portion of the hair in the treated area. On average, about three sessions are required to achieve permanent elimination of approximately 79% of the hair*. Our experienced team will create a personalized treatment plan to ensure optimal results based on your unique hair growth patterns and desired outcomes.
