Every Ideal Image location has two types of FDA-cleared lasers. Our decade of experience in laser hair removal has shown that no one laser can accommodate all skin types and colors. Dark skin types require a specific YAG laser to be safe and effective. For lighter skin types Ideal Image uses the Alexandrite laser, which is considered the gold standard in laser hair removal
All laser hair removal treatments are performed by one of Ideal Image's well-trained medical professionals. Each practitioner is extensively trained before performing any treatments. Additionally, a licensed medical doctor serves as a medical director for each individual location, and oversees all treatment and competency of the medical staff.
Ideal Image opened its first location in September of 2001 and quickly became the pioneers in laser hair removal. Since then we have performed over 6 million laser hair removal treatments. When it comes to Laser hair removal, we are the nation's industry leader. Ideal Image is the only national laser hair removal company with a fully operational laser hair removal training center. We are committed to providing the best practices for laser hair removal, while we pioneer and set the pace for others to follow.
While laser hair removal can be performed on virtually any skin color and hair type, hair color is the most important factor. The light emitted from the laser is attracted to the melanin, or dark pigment, in the hair follicle. This means that dark hair is treated most effectively. Treatments performed on red, blonde, and gray hair are not generally as effective. Our multiple laser modalities at each Ideal Image location, allow us great versatility for accommodating the wide variance in hair and skin color.
