Frequently Asked Questions

What are the most popular areas for laser hair removal?


The most popular areas are female facial hair, bikini line hair and back hair for men.




How long has laser technology been in use?


The laser was first used in medicine in 1961, nearly 50 years ago! Laser hair removal began about 15 years ago, but has advanced significantly in the past 8 - 10 years.




What is the difference between an IPL and a laser?


IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and is not a laser. While IPLs can be effective for some cosmetic procedures, our experience supports the more powerful, yet safer use of the laser for hair removal.




What are the risks of hair removal?


Laser hair removal is a lunch time procedure. There is no recovery time. Patients can return to work or play immediately. These lasers do not remove skin, so the risks are very low. As with any procedure, we have an informed consent that explains all the possible risks.​




How old do you have to be for laser hair removal?


There really is no age limit, but we never treat toddlers. Young people that are not finished growing will develop new hair as they grow, and will require touch ups to maintain the results. We currently do not treat children under the age of 13. Older people usually have gray hair that will not respond to laser.




Is it painful?


People have compared it to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Compared to waxing the treatment has very little discomfort. Everyone's pain tolerance is different. If you do find it uncomfortable, we can prescribe a numbing cream for the skin.




I have dark skin but I am tired of shaving and dealing with shave bumps and ingrown hairs. Would laser hair removal work for me? Is it safe for me skin?


Yes. Every Ideal Image center has two distinct lasers: one for lighter skin, and one for darker skin. No matter how dark the skin, our laser is considered the gold standard for treating unwanted hair on darker skin types. Its longer wavelength safely bypasses the skin and targets the melanin in the hair shaft, destroying the unwanted hair follicle. You will love your results!
