Patients who seek hair reduction in New York for the face typically want to address excess hair on the chin, upper lip and eyebrow area. The Icon Aesthetic System is extremely effective in addressing these precise areas – restoring a groomed and refined overall look.

Bikini area

The bikini area is an extremely popular location for permanent hair reduction. In general, our patients require four to eight 15-minute treatments to thoroughly address this area.


When men possess thick and excessive chest hair, it can be both unsightly and uncomfortable. And, because this hair tends to grow quickly, shaving or trimming it can be unnecessarily time-consuming. In just four to six one-hour treatments at Scarpidis Aesthetics, you can eliminate the excess hair that concerns you most, achieving a less unruly – and more groomed – chest appearance.


Excessive back hair is an unsightly and embarrassing problem that affects countless men. And, because the back is so difficult to access, it can be impossible to address on your own. Fortunately, you can be free of this issue once and for all in approximately five permanent hair reduction treatments in NYC.


Many women need to shave their legs multiple times a week to maintain a smooth appearance – and even then stubble can quickly grow and destroy your look. In just four to eight treatments, we can eliminate the hair on your legs for good, so they’re permanently silky smooth and stubble-free.


Excessive arm hair is a common problem for both men and women. Using powerful laser technology, we can either thin out the hair or remove it completely – giving you the precise final outcome you desire.


For most adults, the underarms need to be shaved every day – which can quickly become cumbersome. Fortunately, you can throw out the razor and eliminate this part of your daily routine after an extremely quick and easy permanent hair reduction treatment in New York at Scarpidis Aesthetics.

The permanent hair reduction procedure

You will need to begin preparing for your permanent hair reduction well in advance, by avoiding waxing and plucking your hair for at least three weeks prior to your treatment. This is because the laser targets the roots of your hair, so they need to be intact for the procedure.

Your unwanted facial and body hair will be permanently removed during a series of sessions at Dr. Scarpidis’ private New York office. We will then adjust the laser to account for your hair color, thickness and location, before applying the device to the treatment area, sending powerful light to the hair follicle and destroying growth at the source.

In general, you can expect the procedure to be virtually painless, with most patients experiencing only minor discomfort. However, if you have a low threshold for pain, we will offer you the opportunity to numb the area to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible.

Schedule a consultation

If you’re ready to say goodbye to shaving, plucking and waxing for good, we invite you to schedule a consultation at Scarpidis Aesthetics today. During your private meeting in our New York office, we will thoroughly evaluate the hair you’d like removed, before outlining a customized treatment plan designed to use the Icon Aesthetic System to give you the permanently silky smooth skin you desire.
