How It Works
Hair Reduction Before & After
ICON Light-Based Technology (IPL)
ICON light-based technology (IPL) works by targeting and destroying the hair cells responsible for hair growth without harming the surrounding skin. This approach is fast and simple, with each treatment complete in just minutes. The technology is FDA approved and works on a variety of skin types.
Is it safe?
The Cynosure ICON is FDA approved to be safe and effective. We use a melanin reading device called the Skintel to make sure we are operating within safe parameters for every skin type. All of our treatments are physician supervised and every safety measure is put in place to make sure our patients are in good hands.
Do I have the right skin/hair type?
Hair reduction can be done on all skin types but not necessarily all hair types. IPL targets the pigment in hair in order to effectively destroy the hair cells. We are unable to treat white, grey, or blonde hair.
What should I know before treatment?
Before being treated, the treatment area must be free of sun exposure for at least 4-6 weeks. We also ask that you come clean shaven without any product on your skin and avoid exfoliating, waxing, epilating, tweezing and chemical hair remover 4 weeks before treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Generally, most people need between 4 and 6 treatments.
How long is each treatment?
Session times vary depending on the area being treated. You can decide whether to treat multiple areas at once, or over successive treatments. Most areas take 30mins or less to treat.
What should I expect post treatment?
A mild sunburn-like sensation is expected. This usually lasts 2-24 hours but can persist up to 72 hours. Mild swelling and/or redness may accompany this, but usually resolves in 2-3 days. We provide all of our patients with post care instructions and they are readily available here Should take Patient to our post treatment page on our website.
