Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a treatment that’s designed to give you the hair-free skin you want without you ever having to pick up a razor or pair of tweezers again. 

Using the latest laser technology, Wellspring Family Medicine offers this groundbreaking, safe treatment to help patients feel more comfortable in their skin while freeing up more of their valuable time. 

By permanently crossing the to-do of hair removal off your list, laser hair removal helps you get back to what matters most to you. 

Laser hair removal is effective virtually anywhere on your body, including your:

  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Bikini area
  • Face

How does laser hair removal work?

Wellspring Family Medicine uses the Icon™ laser to deliver laser hair removal. This safe, highly effective laser features adjustable wavelengths. 

Your Wellspring Family Medicine hair removal specialist tailors the wavelength of the laser to fixate on the color of your specific hair follicle. When directed at your skin, the laser’s light energy is absorbed into the hair follicle. 

It gradually heats the follicle to the point that the follicle is permanently destroyed, preventing it from ever-growing hair again. 

This laser hair removal is designed with your comfort in mind. Most patients liken the sensation to nothing more than a rubber band snapping against your skin. 

Treatments take anywhere from just a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. Wellspring Family Medicine ensures you know what to expect before your appointment so you can relax comfortably during treatment. 

How many treatments will I need?

The Icon laser is extremely effective in treating hair follicles that are actively growing hair. But not all hair follicles are active all the time. 

To ensure they can treat all of your follicles to give you permanently smooth skin, Wellspring Family Medicine generally recommends 3-6 treatments spaced sufficiently apart to allow previously inactive hair follicles to start growing hair.

Once you tell them about the area you want to be treated, they tailor a treatment program to you, the desired treatment area, and your specific hair and skin type. 

If you’re ready to get smooth skin for life, the laser hair removal specialists at Wellspring Family Medicine are available to talk with you about this treatment. Call them or schedule your consultation online today.
