About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses a highly concentrated beam of light. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, called melanin. The light absorption creates heat that damages the hair follicles, which prevents the growth of new hair.

The hair grows in cycles, which is why multiple treatments are necessary to permanently reduce hair growth.

Who Could Benefit From This Service?

Laser hair removal is an excellent option for anyone that has unwanted facial or body hair. Typically, the procedure is performed on the legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, and the bikini line.

Until recently, laser hair removal was only effective for people with light skin and dark hair. However, our technology is effective for all skin types! We use the Fotona Dynamis Nd:YAG, which can provide better results and more comfortable treatments for everyone, including people with darker skin tones.

What Should
I Expect?

The Conversation

Before we get started with any treatment, we will have a no-obligation consultation to pinpoint any issues and talk about your goals. This conversation will involve relevant medical and family history to ensure the treatment you are seeking is right for you.

We will then discuss your expected results and any associated risks with the procedure before moving forward.

Before the treatment, we’ll give you special glasses to protect your eyes from the laser. We also may shave the treatment area and apply a topical anesthetic.

We’ll then gently press a handheld laser to the skin, beaming light energy into the follicles. The Fotona Laser has a cold air cooling device to reduce any discomfort you may feel, protect your skin, and reduce the risk of side effects.

The laser will heat the hair in the hair follicles quickly and intensely, so you may feel a sensation like a pinprick. Most patients report minimal discomfort.

The procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to over an hour, depending on the treatment area. We’ll discuss any specifics of your treatment with you during your consultation.

After the procedure, you may experience some redness and swelling on the treatment site. Your skin may feel sunburned for a few days. We might give you an ice pack to reduce any discomfort, but these immediate side effects should subside in a few hours.

For the following 6 weeks, avoid prolonged sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.

You’ll begin to shed hairs over the next few weeks – this will look like new hair growth. However, when hair does start to regrow, it will usually be finer and lighter in colour.

Hair grows in cycles, so you’ll need to repeat treatments to permanently reduce hair.

What Do I Need to Know?

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?

Laser hair removal as a treatment is generally safe with minimal side effects. There do not appear to be any long-term risks associated with the procedure. We will discuss any possible complications with you during your consultation.

You will most likely see 10-25% hair reduction after each treatment.

Hair grows in cycles, and each follicle can only be destroyed during its growth phase. You will need approximately 4-8 treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart to get the best results.

After treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling. Your skin will likely feel sunburned for a few days. Cold compresses and moisturizers can help to reduce discomfort.

Most people should be able to return to work and normal activities of daily living.

As skin colour and hair type vary between person to person, no 2 outcomes will be the same. The amount of time it takes for the hair to regrow depends solely on your hair growth cycles. Most people will experience hair regrowth within a few months.

Once the hair begins to regrow, you can come in for further treatments. Results are long-term once the hair follicle is destroyed.

Most patients report minor, if any, side effects. These include:

  • Discomfort
  • Swelling
  • Redness

In some rare cases, temporary changes in skin colour, blistering or irritation can cause scarring or infection. We’ll discuss your medical history and relevant information at your consultation to avoid complications.

If you’re seeking permanent hair reduction, you’ll need to get multiple treatments to destroy the hair follicle completely. Depending on your hair growth cycle, you’ll need to come back for another procedure when your hair begins to regrow.

Most patients come back for treatments every 4 to 6 weeks to maintain results.

Laser Hair Removal Pre & Post-Care Instructions

We provide our patients with a comprehensive list of pre and post-care instructions for their laser hair removal treatment.

  • Do NOT pluck, wax, use a depilatory or undergo electrolysis in the areas you wish to have treated for 4 to 6 weeks prior to laser hair removal.
  • Do NOT tan the areas to be treated for 4 to 6 weeks prior to treatment.
  • AVOID using self-tanning products for 2 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Please shave on the day of your treatment.
  • Do NOT moisturize the area to be treated the day of treatment.
  • Some redness and swelling in the area are normal after treatment and may feel similar to a sunburn. This should resolve within several hours to several days after treatment.
  • Apply aloe vera to the treatment site or use a cold compress if necessary.
  • Do NOT soak in hot tubs or have a hot bath for 24 hours.
  • Do NOT work out to the point of perspiration, as extreme itchiness may develop.
  • AVOID irritants (glycolics, retoids etc.) for 7 days after treatment.
  • AVOID deodorant for 24 hours.
  • Apply sunscreen for 6 weeks over the treated area if it is exposed to the sun.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to consult with your technician or contact the clinic.

I been using their products for almost 2 years for my hyperpigmentations. All products are Amazing and very effective. .😊
Had the pleasure of dealing with Sarah, the owner at Iconic beauty. First off, this place is GORGEROUS! The staff are all friendly and very knowledgeable. Was such a treat to experience this place. First time getting injections and Sarah was wonderful in explaining the process and made it painless even for a needle hater like me. I also bought a few products from her skin care line SKINCEUTICALS and after 2 weeks notice an improvement.

I received a couple different treatments with a couple of different ladies from iconic, both of them were so wonderful. Rayna is very knowledgable and you can tell she really loves what she does. Sarah is also so knowledgeable. She is also one of the most generous people I’ve met. And she brings more than just a cosmetic treatment, she really listens to you and gives you her honest opinion, and she will never push you to do anything she doesn’t think you need. Everything about this clinic is so professional, so relaxing, so well done. It’s a very enjoyable experience, and I highly recommend trying them out.

Felt it was time to consider a couple of services to remove some unwanted lines in my face. Sarah was great at explaining all aspects of the treatment and what expected results I could achieve. At no time did I feel I was being sold more than I wanted or feel like I needed more work. Beautiful environment and well thought out premises. Sarah is down to earth and real, which makes you feel comfortable during the treatment, especially when you are exposing all your facial flaws.
