If you are tired of the hassle of waxing or shaving, consider laser hair removal at our Oklahoma City, OK, practice. Using the advanced ICON™ laser, Evelyn Lorents, MD, can target virtually any area of your body. The laser will damage unwanted hair follicles. Destroying them at various stages of the growth cycle, the treatment will keep the hair from reappearing. At Sculpted Medical Spa & Cryotherapy Center, we offer incredibly precise and low-risk care. Typically, Dr. Lorents will perform multiple sessions to achieve the most dramatic results. The treatment is conservative and very quick, and the effects are typically permanent.
Are You a Candidate?
Laser hair removal is suitable for both men and women. If you want to remove unwanted hair on any of the following areas, you may be a candidate for laser hair removal:
- Bikini Line
- Upper lip
The treatment will be most effective if you have a lighter skin tone and darker hair. Further, although laser hair removal poses very few risks, you should have healthy skin to undergo treatment. An infection or condition like eczema may limit your candidacy.

Hair Removal Process
Prior to your treatment, Dr. Lorents may numb your skin with a topical anesthetic. Then she will apply the ICON™ laser on the treatment area, choosing a setting that is best suited to you. The device will emit pulses of energy that penetrate below your skin to seriously damage currently growing hair follicles.
After just three treatment sessions, the ICON™ laser can eliminate up to 79% of unwanted hair.
Your hair goes through different growth cycles. Therefore, you will require multiple treatments to target all hairs at their various stages. Typically, these subsequent treatments will be spaced four to six weeks apart. Based on the results, Dr. Lorents will determine the right number of sessions for you.
Laser hair removal can achieve great results. After just three treatment sessions, the ICON™ laser can eliminate up to 79% of unwanted hair. With additional sessions, you may enjoy even more dramatic effects. In most cases, results are permanent, although you could require a few touch-up treatments to target isolated hairs.

In addition to being highly effective, laser hair removal offers several additional benefits.
- After treatment, you may feel more confident about your appearance, particularly if you struggle with facial hair.
- You will not experience any downtime and can immediately return to work and exercise.
