To achieve results, Dr. Gutierrez waves a laser wand closely over the top of your skin. The Icon laser works its magic on the skin by delivering energy deep beneath the skin, where it prompts the body to produce elastin and collagen. These proteins are responsible for keeping skin clear, elastic, firm, and smooth.
The Icon laser removes hair by heating hair follicles until they’re irreparably damaged. In response, the follicles fall out. This process also inhibits future hair growth, and as time goes on, hair grows back lighter and finer.
If you’d like more permanent results, Dr. Gutierrez can set up a series of laser hair removal sessions for you.
Typically, an Icon laser treatment session takes 15-30 minutes. It varies by the intensity of your treatment and the surface area you’re treating.
Treatments aren’t painful, but you may feel some tingling. To reduce any discomfort, the wand emits a cooling sensation as it delivers laser energy.
Gentle and noninvasive, the Icon laser creates very few side effects. Those side effects that it does produce aren’t serious.
After treatment, you may experience temporary side effects including:
Occasionally, you may experience an infection. If this happens, reach out to Dr. Gutierrez right away so that he can treat it. Rarely, Icon laser treatment can cause scarring.
