Reaching for the razor may be your first instinct when it comes to reducing the hair on your body. However, though this may be the typical go-to method, it is far from comfortable. The burn and the irritation caused by razor shaving are everyday realities that most of us have to contend with. Thankfully, alternatives do exist, and we’re happy to provide one at Neighborhood Wellness Clinic. If you struggle with unwanted hair, our ICON™ laser hair removal system may be just what you need to get the beautifully smooth results you’ve been looking for.
What Causes Unwanted Hair?
The amount of unwanted hair on your body is mainly determined by your hormone levels. The hormones responsible for your hair quantity are called androgens. These hormones control the density of body hair after we reach puberty and are more active in men. The more androgens you have, the thicker, darker, and more visible your hair will be. For those who have sensitive skin, having excessive body hair can cause quite a bit of skin irritation at times. At Neighborhood Wellness Clinic, we provide a laser hair reduction system that effectively eliminates unwanted body hair without aggressive irritation.
What Are the Signs?
Ingrown hairs, blackheads, and redness can be common in those with many body hair and sensitive skin. Hair regrowth after shaving can be incredibly itchy and uncomfortable for those with these types of issues. If you rarely shave because of the discomfort that traditional shaving causes, our ICON™ laser hair removal may be just the right choice for you. Treatments with this device are performed with precision and care to ensure you get the great results you want without downtime.
How Do We Remove Unwanted Hair?
Our ICON™ laser hair removal system relies on targeted laser energy that damages your hair follicles without injuring the surrounding skin. The ICON™ features a Skintel™ melanin reader that helps detect your exact skin type and allows us to calibrate the device to offer the best results. An ICON™ takes roughly 15-30 minutes and is described as quite tolerable.
