Are you still shaving, waxing, or using depilatories to get rid of excess facial or body hair? If so, there’s never been a better time to say good riddance to those old, worn out methods of hair removal. There’s no longer any good reason to suffer through unsightly razor bumps, messy creams that hardly do the job, uncomfortable bleaching, time-consuming electrolysis or painful waxing procedures. Today permanent laser hair removal based on intense pulsed light (IPL) has never been more affordable, effective or safer, thanks to the Palomar® Icon™ system, the leader in the next generation of permanent laser hair removal procedures.
In the 1990s, Palomar® pioneered permanent hair removal after receiving the first FDA clearance for this procedure. Since then, Palomar permanent hair removal lasers have been the industry standard that all others have been compared to, and validated by Palomar’s strong patent position.
According to Gregory Altshuler, Ph.D., Palomar Senior Vice President of Research, “The Palomar Icon is truly a new generation of technology. We have completely redesigned this platform technology from the ground up. The Palomar Icon features increases in both power and cooling that can improve treatment outcomes and promote greater comfort.”
Benefits of Permanent Laser Hair Removal with the Palomar Icon™
Permanent Laser Hair Removal Boosts Confidence
Research shows that permanent laser hair removal can boost people’s confidence and give them the sleek, smooth skin they crave. For a guy with a hairy back and shoulders, a young girl who has excess hair growth on her upper lip, or a woman with very furry arms, permanent laser hair removal can be life altering in terms of boosting self-esteem.
Laser hair removal with the Palomar Icon can help women, men and teens achieve all of their hair removal goals. It is effective everywhere, including on large areas like the legs and back, facial hair, bikini area, arms, armpits, back, chest, abdomen and more. Plus once you’re done with the treatments, you’re done forever. In the long run, permanent laser hair removal is much cheaper than a lifetime of waxing or shaving.
What To Expect
Depending on the size of the area to be treated, permanent laser hair removal can take five minutes or up to an hour. The medical aesthetician or provider will move a laser handpiece over the targeted area, effectively treating the hair follicles without damaging the skin. Hair follicles grow in three distinct cycles (active, regressive and dormant). Since the laser treatment only destroys the hair follicle during the growth cycle and does not impact the follicles that are dormant, a series of treatments are needed–generally six treatments spaced approximately six weeks apart.
Why the Icon Is Best
The Palomar Icon™ is superior because it can selectively target melanin in the hair follicle for excellent results on all skin types, including tan and dark skin, as well as different hair colors and textures, which is not possible with many other laser hair removal systems on the market today.
If you’re tired of dealing with unwanted hair, permanent laser hair removal with the Palomar Icon™ can help you look and feel your best.
Bellava is proud to be one of the only spas in Westchester to feature the Palomar Icon™.
