We all want to look our best, especially in the summertime. Whether we achieve this by eating right or working out - a good perspective on our own body image is key to a better quality of life.

Unwanted, troublesome or embarrassing body and facial hair can be a nuisance - and waxing and shaving are temporary and can be painful. This is why every year more and more people choose to have laser hair removal treatment. Through laser hair removal, you can eliminate the need to shave and wax on a daily basis. Men and women alike enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal immensely! Whether it’s upper lip laser hair removal, chest, legs or bikini line - these treatments are safe and proven to have long-lasting results.

So, Does Laser Hair Removal Really Work?

With so many false claims, special creams, at-home lasers and “overnight results” treatments, it’s easy to get discouraged and wonder if laser hair removal really works.

Yes, laser hair removal really works, if performed by a professional and in a licensed medical spa. In the past, traditional laser platforms were used to treat only dark, course hairs on particular skin types. And consequently, treatment sessions were longer and a more painful. And still, many laser hair removal clinics still use this antiquated technology.

ICON: A Revolutionary Breakthrough on Laser Hair Removal for All Skin and Hair Types

Recently, a revolutionary laser platform was unveiled by Palomar Medical that proves to have quicker and long-lasting results for more than just laser hair removal. The Palomar ICON system redefines the standard of light-based cosmetic and dermatologic care by introducing several new enhancements designed to help improve clinical outcomes and treatment satisfaction. Every hair and skin type – this includes red heads and blondes – can enjoy the benefit of a quick and painless laser hair removal. And with the utilization of the Skintel Melanin Reader, the laser hair treatment process level is determined by providing the aesthetician with an accurate reading of the patient’s Melanin index level. This removes the need for traditional skin type evaluations and patient’s account of sun exposure. This smart tool is unlike any other technology on the market.

 The ICON laser is used for:
  • ALL hair and skin types, including blondes and red heads
  • removal of unwanted hair
  • acne scarring
  • laser skin resurfacing
  • laser wrinkle reduction
  • laser scar and stretch mark treatment

The benefits of the ICON laser hair removal system include:
  • treats larger areas in less time.
  • is quicker and less painful.
