How does Ideal Laser™ Hair Removal work?
Using highly concentrated energy, Laser Hair Removal targets hair follicles and emits pulses of light that stop the growth of the hair. The complete Laser Hair Removal process requires a series of treatments, but results can start to be seen after the first treatment. Over the course of one to three weeks, the treated hair falls out. With every treatment, fewer and fewer hairs will grow back, leaving you with smooth skin.
What to Expect
The first step is your free consultation.
During your consultation, one of our professionals will assess your hair and skin type. This will help determine which Ideal Laser™ and how many treatments you’ll need. Once you determine to move forward, we will then start your treatment process that day or schedule it for a near future date.
You’ll need to avoid sun exposure for a minimum of four weeks prior to treatment.
You’ll be asked to shave within 24 hours of your appointment.
All makeup and skin products will be removed prior to treatment.
We will prep the treated area by drawing white lines exactly where the treatments will take place.
Treatments average just under 30 minutes.
Bring headphones or a book to pass the time.
We’ll apply an Aloe Vera gel to cool off the skin after treatment.
You’ll need to keep the treated area out of the sun for at least a week.
Treated hair may fall out 7-21 days after treatment.
What does Laser Hair Removal feel like?
Many people describe the feeling like a rubber band snapping against the skin. But keep in mind that everyone’s pain tolerance is different. Compared to waxing and other forms of hair removal, it’s not so bad. If you do find it uncomfortable, our healthcare professionals can prescribe a numbing cream for the skin.
What is the difference between IPL and a laser?
IPL stands for “intense pulsed light” and it’s not a laser. While IPLs can be effective for some cosmetic procedures, our experience supports the more powerful, yet safer and faster use of the laser for a more permanent solution to hair removal.
How can I be sure the hair won’t grow back?
Ideal Image provides all of our clients with a Lifetime Guarantee for all areas purchased, meaning you can come back in for a touch-up any time hair returns.
Why is Laser Hair Removal for dark skin tones different from fair skin tones?
Laser hair removal uses highly-concentrated beams of light to destroy your hair follicle, the source of where new hair roots and grows. To reach the follicle, a laser is targeted at the pigment in your hair. Traditionally, it was only possible for a laser to focus if there was a stark contrast between your hair and your skin—making the optimal candidate for laser hair removal someone with dark hair and fair skin.
Fortunately, improvements in technology have made laser hair removal for dark skin tones not just possible, but highly effective*. Enhanced lasers can be used in a much more precise way to safely and effectively remove hair from medium, dark, and deep skin tones. Every Ideal Image location is equipped with the proper laser technology to remove unwanted hair for individuals of all skin tones.
What is the best hair removal laser for dark skin?
The best hair removal laser for dark skin is the FDA-cleared GentleYAG© laser. Unlike traditional lasers, the GentleYAG laser features a wavelength specifically designed for deeper complexions. Known as the Nd:YAG wavelength, this technology is absorbed less by the natural melanin in deeper skin, allowing the laser to directly target hair at the follicle. The GentleYAG laser bypasses natural pigmentation in your skin for a flawless, hair-free finish.
Who performs Laser Hair Removal procedures at Ideal Image?
All Laser Hair Removal treatments are performed by our highly trained staff of medical and nursing professionals. We employ registered nurses, nurse practitioners and physician assistants who are extensively trained in the most effective protocols. Additionally, a licensed medical doctor serves as a medical director for each individual location.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Laser hair removal is one of the most permanent forms of hair removal currently on the market. It’s also one of the only FDA-cleared procedures that can directly target the source of hair growth beneath your skin. Your hair—including unwanted patches on your underarms, chest and bikini line—grows from hair follicles located under the surface of the skin. Laser hair removal uses minimally invasive laser technology to gently target hair growth precisely at the follicle.
Pulses of light render the follicle incapable of producing more hair, meaning you will stop growing hair in the areas that have been treated. Most patients see results immediately after their first laser hair removal session; however, treated hair continues to fall out for one to three weeks following each treatment. Depending on the size of the treated area, as well as hair and skin type, the number of treatments you may need to target all unwanted hair follicles may vary.
Is laser hair removal the best permanent hair removal solution?
Alternative hair removal procedures, such as waxing or shaving, only remove the hair above the surface of your skin, meaning that hair grows back quickly. IPL or “intense pulsed light” treatments can take longer to complete than laser treatments and don’t guarantee results for all skin types. The ease and effectiveness of laser hair removal make it the best hair reduction solution. Most importantly, Ideal Image MedSpa offers a Lifetime Guarantee Program on laser hair removal.
All of our gentle touch procedures are conducted by highly trained Medical Professionals with the use of best-in-class laser technologies. Our devices have been developed to minimize patient discomfort, speed up treatment time, and produce the most successful results. All Ideal Image locations are equipped with both Alexandrite and GentleYAG© laser technology to perform laser hair removal on virtually any skin color and hair type, helping everyone get rid of their unwanted stubble or 5 o’clock shadow for good.
How can I be sure hair won’t grow back?
So, is laser hair removal permanent—forever? Laser hair removal is incredibly effective at stunting the growth of hair directly at its follicle and in most cases results are long-term. However, there is a chance the follicle can once again produce hair. In the rare event hair does come back, our Lifetime Guarantee Program ensures that you can come back for a touch-up at any time for a fraction of the cost.

How does Laser Hair Removal work on dark hair?
Laser Hair removal for dark hair relies on both your hair color and your skin tone. Traditional laser hair removal treatments can easily target darker hair on light and olive skin tones—when there is a significant distinction between your hair and your skin, the laser has no issues identifying and targeting your hair follicles.
For men and women with dark hair and deep skin tones, a specialized laser will need to be used to effectively target hair growth. Just as a traditional laser may struggle to locate light hair on light skin, dark hair on dark skin makes it difficult to pinpoint individual hair follicles. For this reason, every Ideal Image location is equipped with a YAG laser to target the contrast between dark hair and dark skin.
How does Laser Hair Removal work on blonde hair?
Blonde hair is rich in light pigment, which can make traditional Laser Hair Removal a bit tricky. Because light hair and light skin share light pigments, it can be difficult for lasers to pinpoint where your hair stops, and your skin begins.
With these obstacles in mind, Ideal Image still recommends scheduling a free consultation to determine coloration and to discuss the procedure further.
How does Laser Hair Removal work on different hair densities and thicknesses?
Your hair type refers to both your hair density and thickness. There are a variety of hair types, and the type of hair you’re aiming to treat will largely determine the course of your laser hair removal treatment.
Fine — Fine hair has the smallest diameter of the three hair types, which means the individual strands of hair are the thinnest. Fine hair generally creates less of a contrast with the skin, making it more difficult to pinpoint.
Medium — Medium hair has a larger diameter than fine hair, allowing it to be spotted easier by laser technology. Medium hair also tends to have more pigment per strand, meaning laser hair removal can heat the follicle more easily.
Coarse — Coarse hair has the largest diameter of the three hair types, which means the hair is thickest and easiest to target. Coarse hair also has the most pigment per strand, making it the quickest to heat with laser technology.
