Laser Hair Reduction

What is laser and IPL hair reduction?

If you are tired of daily maintenance and the 5 o’clock shadow or the ingrown hairs and redness associated with waxing, IPL or laser hair reduction could be the perfect hair free solution for you. At Revive Aesthetics, we provide ICON IPL and Quanta laser treatments. The energy from these devices target hair follicles and inhibit future hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin. They can safely and gently address unwanted hair growth from wherever it is bothering you.

ICON IPL and Quanta hair reduction treatments target the root of hair follicles, inhibiting regrowth through a series of treatments. This treatment can be used on most areas of the body, including the arms, legs, chest, back, stomach, neck, face and shoulders.

How ICON and Quanta work

*Individual results may vary; not a guarantee.

ICON and Quanta hair reduction treatments target the root of hair follicles, meaning that they only require a few sessions to give you the perpetually smooth skin you desire.* The laser beam passes through the skin and penetrates hair follicles. Laser energy heats up the root of the hair follicle and causes it to die off, preventing future hair growth.* This treatment can be used on most areas of the body, including the arms, legs, chest, back, stomach, neck, face and shoulders.

What to expect during your appointment

Prepare your skin by arriving to your appointment clean shaven. Your skin should be healthy and free of any wounds, recent tanning, makeup or bronzers. Inform your laser technician if you are pregnant, nursing or have any metal implants and of any medications you are taking. During your appointment, the laser or IPL will pass over the areas of your body where you have unwanted hair. Our IPL has a built-in skin cooling surface, and with our laser we use a Cryocool machine to maintain patient comfort. Most patients report that it is virtually painless, comparing the sensation to that of a light rubber band snap.* Laser hair reduction and IPL treatments are quick sessions with minimal downtime. After your treatment, avoid extreme heat, harsh cosmetics and strenuous activities. Treat your skin gently for 48 hours. Treatment intervals vary from 4-6 weeks, depending on the area treated.

What to expect from the results

IPL and laser hair reduction methods require a series of treatments. During your first appointment, your unwanted hair will be reduced, but the optimal results are seen after approximately 6 sessions.* The exact number of sessions will depend on your hair color, hair type, the body area and your skin tone, and hormones. Laser and IPL hair reduction works best when the skin is shaved and the hair is in its first stage of the growth cycle. Hormones significantly affect hair growth. Lasers can disable only active follicles, so touch ups may be necessary even after initial hair reduction goals have been met.
