The cost of Laser Hair Removal is different for everyone. Our consultants will work with you to personalize a treatment plan that fits your needs. Everyone’s a little bit different. And so is their hair. We can remove hair from almost any area of the body, but it’s important to come into our location for a complimentary consultation and discuss exactly what your needs are.

Think about how sunlight is attracted to darker clothing. That’s kind of how our lasers work. The laser’s energy is attracted to the pigment of the hair. Which means Laser Hair Removal works best on skin with a fair complexion and dark, coarse hair. Ideal Image, however, offers a variety of laser types to treat a variety of skin types and complexions, including those with darker skin tones. So anyone can see great results.

Dark hair is most effectively treated, while red, blonde, and gray hair are generally more difficult to target with Laser Hair Removal. During the initial consultation, your skin type, hair color and skin sensitivity will help us determine a personalized treatment plan to ensure beautiful, smooth results that you’ll love.

The most popular areas for women are the face and bikini line. For men, the back is the most popular.

The very first Tampa location opened in September 2001. Ideal Image now has locations all over the United States and we’ve performed over six million Laser Hair Removal treatments.

The laser was first used in the medical field in 1961, nearly fifty years ago. Laser Hair Removal began about fifteen years ago, but it has advanced significantly in the past ten years.

Laser Hair Removal is much faster than electrolysis. Electrolysis hair removal requires more time because it only treats one hair at a time, while Laser Hair Removal treats many hairs with every laser pulse. With Laser Hair Removal, for example, a small area like the underarms can be treated in only twenty minutes.

The Alexandrite laser is considered to be the gold standard laser by many in the field of Laser Hair Removal. This is especially true for those with lighter skin types. However, if your skin is darkly pigmented, you will get the best results with a laser specifically designed for your skin type — like the YAG laser. Ideal Image uses both in every one of our locations.

The risks of Laser Hair Removal are very low, as the lasers are designed to remove hair quickly and efficiently. It’s a lunchtime procedure with no recovery time. As with every procedure, our staff walks each guest through a detailed consent form that explains all the possible risks.
