Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is Icon MaxR laser treatment?

For many people, unwanted hair is a persistent and troubling problem. Hair in unwanted places can negatively affect your desired appearance, lowering your self-confidence. Where other treatments fail to remove this hair, the Icon MaxR treatment system often removes 50% to 80% of unwanted hair permanently on all skin types. Moreover, it is quick and noninvasive, making it convenient and easy to get the results you want.

How does Icon MaxR work?

Icon MaxR uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser technology to permanently remove hair from unwanted areas such as your face, back, chest, arms, and legs. The Icon MaxR device targets trouble areas to deliver precise heat energy which destroys the hair follicle, preventing future growth. During your appointment, Dr. Rezk takes ample time to review the process with you and answer any questions you may have.

What should I expect at my treatment appointment?

Initially, Dr. Rezk will review your situation and develop a comprehensive plan of care based on your needs and goals. During the treatment, the laser is placed over the area of treatment and allowed to do its work. Most sessions last less than one hour, although treatment times depend on the size of the area to be treated. Since the treatment is noninvasive, you are able to return to your normal activities following the appointment. Often times, multiple treatments are used for best results.

Are Icon MaxR treatments painful?

Most patients tolerate the treatments comfortably. However, if you are worried that you will be sensitive to the treatment, there are several steps that can be taken to ensure a pain-free experience. During your appointment, speak with Dr. Rezk about your options.

Is follow-up treatment needed?

While the majority of hair follicles are destroyed permanently, you may benefit from follow-up maintenance treatment. Dr. Rezk will develop a comprehensive plan to ensure that you get the best results possible, delivering long-lasting hair removal therapy.
