Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does a laser remove unwanted hair?

The Icon Aesthetic Laser System uses concentrated light beams that Dr. Mian targets at the follicles in your skin where the unwanted hair emerges. The laser light destroys pigment cells in the follicle and kills it so it can’t grow any new hair.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

If you complete a full course of treatment, the results are permanent, and the treated area will be incapable of ever growing new hair in the future.

You may notice you’re shedding a few hairs after your first treatment session, and you could see a noticeable alteration in the density of the hair within three sessions.

Most patients attend between three and seven laser treatments with Dr. Mian at four- to six-week intervals, until hair growth has definitely stopped.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser hair removal is approved by the FDA and is one of the safest cosmetic procedures you can have. Dr. Mian is an experienced clinician with specialist training and expertise in carrying out laser hair removal, so you’re in safe hands at her clinic.

What are the advantages of laser hair removal?

The main advantage of laser hair removal is the permanency of the solution it provides to the problem of unwanted hair. After your treatment is complete, you can throw out the razors, waxes, and depilatory creams for good.

In addition, laser hair removal offers even more benefits:

  • Dr. Mian can adapt the laser to treat both small and large areas and even individual hairs.
  • Laser treatments are quick to carry out.
  • You don’t need to spend any time recuperating.

Laser treatments are also less painful than techniques such as waxing and epilating.

What happens during a laser hair removal session?

The first step is to trim the hair on the treatment site to the right length to allow the laser to penetrate the follicle, then apply a cooling gel to the skin to ensure you remain comfortable. The gel also helps the laser’s effectiveness.

During your treatment, you may feel a little tingling and warmth as Dr. Mian applies the laser to your skin, but there shouldn’t be any degree of pain.

Once Dr. Mian finishes your treatment session, you’re free to return to your normal daily activities. Your skin might look and feel like you’ve stayed out in the sun a little longer than you should have, but this eases off within a few days.
