Laser Hair Removal Q & A

Where can the ICON® laser be used?

The Icon laser is non-invasive and delivers gentle pulses of intense optimized light to the skin. Laser hair removal can be used on the face and body, in areas including:

  • Eyebrows, upper lip, or face
  • Underarms
  • Bikini Line
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Back

Which areas are most popular?

Most commonly, women seek laser hair removal for bikini line and facial hair.

How long has laser hair removal been in use?

Laser hair removal was first introduced 15 years ago, but the technology has evolved and advanced over time, ensuring that today’s laser hair removal is safer and more effective than ever before.

What is the difference between home laser hair removal devices and professional laser hair removal services?

There are 2 primary differences: the size of the treatment head and the power of the laser. What this means is that while home laser hair removal devices have the potential to be effective, it takes much longer and many more treatments to change hair growth in a single treatment area. Large areas, such as the arms or legs, can take hours to treat with a home device.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Most patients describe laser hair removal as mildly painful or uncomfortable, comparable to a rubber band snapping on the skin. The doctors at Pali MediSpa use numbing cream for patients worried about or unable to tolerate the discomfort of the procedure.

Who is eligible for laser hair removal?

As long as the correct laser is used, patients with any complexion are eligible for treatment. Generally speaking, children aren’t eligible for laser hair removal but adolescents can receive treatment with permission from their parents. While elderly patients are eligible, gray hair doesn’t often respond to the laser treatment.
