Annoyed by Unwanted Hair?
Having a ton of unwanted hair on our bodies can make us feel really self-conscious. While shaving is the usual go-to, razor burn and irritation can be really annoying to deal with. This is especially true for those of us with extra sensitive skin! Thankfully, not every hair removal procedure is created equally. While traditional methods can give our skin a ton of trouble, laser hair removal is typically considered much more tolerable.
What Causes Unwanted Hair?
The amount of unwanted hair on the body is largely based on individual hormone levels. Androgens are the primary hormones responsible for the density of body hair following puberty. Your androgen quantity level can make the appearance of hair thicker and more prominent. The amount of these hormones produced depends on your specific genetic makeup. Having high levels of unwanted hair is especially unfortunate for those who also suffer from sensitive skin. This combination of traits can often cause irritation, especially when one tries to remove the hair.
How Can Helio Help Me?
Our team here at Helio is always on the lookout for the latest in medical technology. Through extensive research, we’ve found the ICON™ laser to be at the forefront of laser hair removal. The ICON™ features a handpiece that targets individual hair follicles, delivering heat that prevents them from growing new hair. While heat from the ICON™ targets your follicles, the system simultaneously employs cooling energy, protecting surrounding tissues around the area. This dual-action keeps you comfortable for the duration of treatment while offering excellent results when the session is complete.
What Are the Results of Treatment?
After your session, a cold compress will be applied to your skin for several minutes to cool it down. You may see some initial results right away. However, it typically takes at least three treatments to achieve optimal hair removal. After your three treatment sessions, you can expect a roughly 79% reduction in hair growth at the treatment site. This treatment will drastically reduce the amount of time and money you spend on shaving and waxing! The ICON™ may even improve the overall appearance of your skin, giving you a fresh, rejuvenated glow!
