Icon Laser for Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing can often improve skin by minimizing the appearance of facial wrinkles and imperfections. However, for many Asian patients, lasers can cause skin discoloration. Therefore, we are very careful when we use laser treatment on an Asian patient. The Icon laser is our preferred choice for lasering because it is suitable for all skin types and ethnicities. When using a laser on an Asian patient, we also pay special attention to skin treatment before and after the procedure. Pretreatment with Retin A® and hydroquinone, a bleaching agent, helps to minimize the risk of skin discoloration.
With the Icon laser, we offer skin revitalization, skin renewal, scar removal, stretch mark treatment, laser hair removal, skin resurfacing, leg vein clearance, and laser tattoo removal.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Removing unwanted hair is a time-consuming activity that many people face on a daily basis. Traditional methods such as shaving, waxing, and tweezing are effective but temporary and must be repeated frequently.
At Enhance Medical Center, we use the latest ICON light-based technology to provide permanent and effective hair reduction for patients with a variety of skin tones and hair types. Most treatment sessions last less than half an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area and your hair type.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
If you are tired of waxing, shaving, and plucking away unwanted hair and want a longer-lasting result, consider laser hair removal with the Icon Laser. Enhance® MedSpa is dedicated to providing our patients with the results they desire. This is why we use the Icon Laser for hair removal, which is great for all skin types and on patients from all backgrounds. Aside from providing you with smooth, beach-ready skin, laser hair removal with the Icon Laser includes the following benefits:
Lasting results: Laser hair removal offers patients a lasting result compared to other methods. Traditional hair removal methods, such as shaving, plucking, and waxing, can cause irritation and damage to the skin. Laser hair removal targets hair structures responsible for growth, which delays or inhibits their ability to regrow hair. This results in smooth skin and saves you time and effort in the long term.
Precision: During your treatment, the laser targets several follicles at the same time, which makes laser hair removal an efficient and precise process. The length of your session depends on the treatment area; a smaller area, such as the upper lip or sideburn, may require less time than a larger area of the body.
Reduced skin irritation: Laser hair removal can reduce the skin irritation and ingrown hairs that often accompany traditional methods of hair removal. Shaving, for example, can cause ingrown hairs, which leads to skin irritation and inflammation in some cases. Because laser hair removal can inhibit hair growth, it reduces the occurrence of ingrown hairs.
What treatment areas can laser hair removal be used on?
Unsightly hair growth can affect many areas of the body and can often lead to embarrassment. Enhance® MedSpa uses the ICON laser hair removal device to treat these areas, including:
- Between eyebrows
How many sessions are needed?
Additional treatments may be necessary to maintain results, but every patient is different. Many patients enjoy long-term results between treatment sessions. Charles S. Lee, MD, will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
Your Enhance® MedSpa specialist will provide you with specific instructions ahead of your first laser hair removal session. Typically, this will include:
- Shaving the treatment area before your session
- Avoiding sun and tanning beds
- Discontinuing waxing or plucking
What is recovery like for laser hair removal?
You will receive full aftercare instructions to help guide you to a successful recovery. There is little downtime required for laser hair removal, and many patients can resume their normal activities soon after treatment. For the first few hours after treatment, you may notice some redness and swelling. This is typical, and ice may be applied to the laser-treated area to help with discomfort. As you continue to recover, you should avoid sunlight and tanning, as directed by Dr. Lee. When you know you are going to be exposed to the sun, it is important that you use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.
