How does permanent hair removal work?
At Black Creek Medical Consultants, Dr. Dyce uses the Icon laser to remove unwanted hair by targeting the hairs themselves and the follicles that produce them. After a series of 10- to 30-minute treatments, your skin is free of unwanted hairs.
How does the Icon remove unwanted hair?
Dr. Dyce adjusts the settings of the Icon so that the laser energy targets the pigment in your unwanted hair. The laser damages the hair and also alters the anatomy of the follicle that produces it. Two to three weeks after your treatment, your hairs fall out.
If the hair is targeted late in its 150-day growth cycle, a new hair might grow back. Dr. Dyce schedules a series of up to six treatments so that he can target each hair in its earliest growth stage. Young hairs don’t grow back after they’ve been destroyed.
What are the advantages of the Icon laser over other lasers?
The Icon features a Skintel® melanin reader that’s highly selective for targeting the pigment in your hair shaft. The Icon can work on all types of skin tones — including dark skin — without damaging your skin. Some other lasers can’t differentiate between dark skin pigments and dark hair pigments.
The Icon handpiece also includes an Advanced Contact Cooling™ component that cools down your skin after each burst of warm laser energy. Temperature controls allow Dr. Dyce to keep you comfortable throughout your treatment.
How long does it take to remove unwanted hair with the Icon?
To ensure that each hair is treated at an early growth stage, you probably need a series of once-monthly treatments over several months. Dr. Dyce recommends annual or biannual touch-ups.
Free up your time by freeing your body from unwanted hair. Schedule your first Icon hair-removal treatment by booking an appointment online or calling the helpful Black Creek Medical Consultant staff.
