What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure involving a specialized laser device to permanently remove unwanted hair from targeted areas. We use cutting-edge laser devices to perform laser hair removal in Indianapolis on light and dark skin tones without harsh side effects or discomfort.

Your Laser Hair Removal Journey

Before Laser Hair Removal…

  • Come in with a fresh shave like you have a hot date. With no downtime, you could leave your appointment straight to date night!
  • Avoid sun exposure and spray tans. I know, tragedy, but it’s totally worth the results.
  • Suspend Accutane for two months prior to appointment.
  • No Aspirin 5-7 days before the appointment; you’re stronger than you think! You’ve got this!
  • No tweezing, waxing, or epilation 2 weeks before your appointment. Drop the Tweezerman; he no longer serves you!

During Laser Hair Removal…

Our laser technician will examine your skin and hair color to calibrate the laser device according to your unique needs. You will have to wear protective glasses for your eyes. The laser device will be moved over the treatment areas to deliver laser energy into the unwanted hair follicles. You might experience a warming sensation, but there is no major pain. Your laser hair removal in Indy will conclude in 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the treatment area.

After Laser Hair Removal…

You can resume most of your daily activities immediately after laser hair removal — there is no downtime. You may experience mild redness and tenderness in the treatment areas, but there are no harsh side effects. The results will gradually appear after 2 weeks when the new growth of hair will appear finer and sparser than before. You need to repeat the treatment after four to six weeks for optimal results — your skin will look more hair-free after each session.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Is laser hair removal right for me?

One of the breakthrough benefits of laser hair removal in Indianapolis is that it’s safe and effective for light to dark skin types. Whether you have fine, light hair or a darker skin tone, our laser device can be used to target and permanently remove unwanted hair. Our laser devices may also be used with tanned skin. However, it is always recommended that you talk with your physician about your specific skin conditions before treatment.

What makes our lasers different from other techniques?

Our lasers eliminate the trade-offs that come with other laser hair removal options. For instance, an Nd:YAG laser can be used across skin types, but it’s less effective. Other technologies are highly effective, but treatments are difficult to tolerate.

Our laser hair removal techniques ensure optimal results for all skin types:

  • Total comfort because of gentle, highly-targeted laser energy.
  • Optimal speed and effectiveness of laser treatments.
  • Suitable for all skin types, regardless of color.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

One of the major benefits of our laser technology is that it eliminates the discomfort of typical laser hair removal. Most people only feel a warming sensation, making our laser hair removal in Indy a highly comfortable one.

How long does laser hair removal take?

The treatment length will vary, depending on the area being treated. Our laser technology is relatively fast and able to complete a large area within 5 minutes.

How many laser hair removal sessions do I need?

The number of sessions required to eliminate hair completely depends on the individual. A typical laser hair removal regimen is 6 to 8 sessions spaced one month apart and then maintenance treatments as needed. Given the efficacy of our laser technologies, you may need fewer sessions and could go longer before needing a touch–up treatment.
