Laser Hair Removal FAQ's
What does Laser Hair Removal feel like?
Everyone's pain tolerance is different. Many people describe laser hair removal to feel like a rubber band snapping against the skin. Compared to waxing and other forms of hair removal, the treatment has very little discomfort. if you do find it uncomfortable, our health care professionals can prescribe a numbing cream for the skin.
How can I be sure the hair won't grow back?
Ideal Image provides all of our guests with a lifetime membership for all areas purchased and guarantees those areas will stay hair-free.
What is the difference between an IPL and a laser?
IPL stands for "Intensed Pulsed Light" and is not a laser. While IPL's 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.
What if I have darker skin? Will laser hair removal still be effective?
Yes. The Alexandrite laser is often used on those with light skin and the YAG laser is best used on individuals with darker skin tones. Ideal Image employs both of these lasers in every one of our laser hair removal centers. Laser hair removal can be performed on virtually any skin color and hair type, but hair color is the most important factor. Our multiple types of lasers allow us great versatility for accommodating the wide variance in hair and skin color. Dark hair is treated most effectively while treatments performed on red, blonde, and gray hair are generally less effective. During your initial consultation, your skin type, hair color and skin sensitivity will help our staff determine which machine you'll require. Both offer beautiful, smooth results that you'll love
