If you’re looking to remove hair for more than a few days or weeks at a time, laser hair removal at Nally Family Practice in Surprise, Arizona, may be exactly what you need. Experienced physician Adam Nally, DO offers Icon™ laser hair removal that can give you permanently reduced hair in the treated areas. Book your appointment online or by phone today.
Laser hair removal with the Icon system delivers focused laser energy into the pigment inside your hair follicles. When the pigment absorbs the laser energy, it transforms into heat. The heat shatters the pigment into many tiny particles and damages the hair follicles to inhibit regrowth permanently, or at least for a very long time.
Icon laser hair removal is comfortable thanks to the advanced cooling system that maintains your skin's surface temperature.
You can utilize Icon laser hair removal on nearly any area with unwanted hair. Treatment areas are entirely up to you, but the most common areas are:
If you have unwanted hair somewhere else, ask Dr. Nally whether Icon laser hair removal is a good option for you. It's safe and effective for nearly any part of the body.
Your Nally Family Practice care provider will give you specific preparation guidelines. Usually, this includes not waxing or plucking for around a month to a month and a half before your first appointment.
Shaving is generally permitted because the Icon laser targets the hair follicle, not the hair on your skin. You should also avoid sun exposure and indoor tanning in the weeks before your laser hair removal appointment.
On the day of your appointment, avoid any substances on your skin, including lotion, perfume, sunscreen, or deodorant. Clean and dry skin is best for laser hair removal.
Your treatment sessions are typically less than an hour, and may take as little as five minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. Most patients have a series of three to six laser hair removal treatments in total, usually a month or more apart.
Laser hair removal reduces your hair permanently. But, that doesn't mean that you'll never have any hair regrowth at all. The good news is that if regrowth occurs, it's likely to be many months or even years in the future. Even better, the new hair is much thinner and lighter than before.
