Laser Hair Reduction Q & A

What is laser hair reduction?

The industry-leading Icon platform helps you achieve a permanent reduction in unwanted body hair growth with little-to-no discomfort. Laser hair reduction involves using a handheld tool to send pulses of laser energy beams deep into hair follicles to target the growth centers.

This effect results in a heating reaction. As hair follicles reach a therapeutic temperature — surrounding skin is unaffected — the growth cycle stops and the hair dies. Within a couple of weeks, treated hairs shed out on their own.

Although Icon laser hair reduction services target large areas, laser energy is most effective on actively growing hairs in the anagen phase. Since every hair on your body is at a different point in the growth cycle — some are growing, some are dormant, and some are shedding — several laser hair reduction treatments are necessary. 

Which areas can be treated with laser hair reduction?

Your Icon laser hair plan service from Waco Primary Care is tailored to any areas you want to treat. Dr. Trippe regularly performs laser hair reduction treatments on the following areas (to name a few):

  • Underarms
  • Chin, jawline, and neck
  • Upper and lower back
  • Chest and abdomen
  • Upper and lower arms and legs

In many cases, Dr. Trippe can treat several areas during a single visit. This way, you can minimize your unwanted body hair growth with fewer sessions to save you time.

How many laser hair reduction sessions will I need?

To determine how many Icon laser hair reduction sessions you may need, Dr. Trippe carefully evaluates your skin and hair. If your hair is very coarse, you may need more laser treatments than someone who has thinner hair.

In general, Dr. Trippe finds that a minimum of three or four laser hair reduction sessions are necessary to start noticing serious results. You may need up to six to eight laser treatments (or more) to achieve dramatic hair reduction benefits.

To effectively target every hair as it’s growing, it’s important to schedule your laser hair reduction treatments at Waco Primary Care about four weeks apart. As you progress throughout your treatment plan, Dr. Trippe may recommend spacing your visits out even further.
