Are You a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Whether you’re tired of shaving your underarms, bleaching your upper lip hair, or checking your bikini line every time you throw your bathing suit on — only to realize you need to wax again, you’re probably ready for a better solution.  

Until now, hair removal was painful, monotonous, time-consuming, and somewhat futile, because the pesky hairs always grow back. Imagine not having to constantly rush for the razor or the bleach at inconvenient times. 

Dr. Michelle Tomlinson-Phelan and Dr. Catherine Schiano of Central Jersey Family Physicians offer a method of hair removal that our patients are so pleased with, they keep returning. We’re only too happy to provide it, as it enhances your self-esteem and simplifies your life considerably.

Laser hair removal is the ideal solution for unwanted body hair

We perform laser hair removal treatments using the revolutionary Icon™ laser system by Cynosure. Your doctor “zaps” your hair follicles, the sources of your unwanted hair, and the Icon laser obliterates them — forever. The heated laser light energy delivered by the treatment is absorbed by your hair follicles, and then they’re destroyed.

Icon’s benefits are impressive:

Aside from these many benefits, the Icon laser hair removal method allows your doctor to target specific areas on your body for hair removal, including your legs, upper lip, arms, and even your brow area to address “unibrow” syndrome. 

Your doctor’s ability to customize treatments is one of the Icon laser’s biggest pluses. It’s much faster and less painful than electrolysis, which addresses hairs one at a time. 

Not only does the Icon laser work for hair removal, but it can be used for scar reduction, skin rejuvenation, and minimization of spider veins. 

And remember, Icon laser hair removal treatments aren’t just for women. We treat men who want excess back hair and other hair gone as well. 

What happens when I get Icon laser hair removal treatment?

Many patients tell us that an Icon laser by Cynosure hair removal treatment reminds them of a visit to the spa! 

First, we make you comfortable and clean the area that we’ll be treating. When your doctor uses the Icon handpiece to deliver the laser treatment, you feel momentary and very minor discomfort.

If you’re wondering why Icon laser treatment usually requires multiple sessions, it’s because your hair actually has three distinct growth phases. Each individual hair is on its own growth schedule, so all of your hairs don’t grow at the same rate. It’s important that we treat each hair when it’s at the right stage of growth. 

That said, some of our patients are pleased after just a single Icon laser treatment. Your aesthetic goals and your doctor’s treatment plan determine how many treatments she recommends. 

Take a look at our online “before and after” gallery. You’ll be amazed at the striking results that Icon laser hair removal treatments bring.
