Laser Hair Removal

You love a polished look free of unwanted hair, but the endless shaving, tweezing, and waxing is getting old. Sound familiar? If you’re ready to get rid of face and body hair for good, you may be the perfect candidate for Forever Bare BBL laser hair removal, available at our Ankeny dermatology clinic and spa near Des Moines, IA.

Forever Bare is one of the safest and most comfortable hair reduction options available today. It targets unwanted hair with long-lasting results so you can focus less on grooming and more on showing off your silky skin. This treatment works best on pale skin with dark, coarse hair. 

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Forever Bare uses broadband light, an advanced form of intense pulsed light (IPL). This light heats and damages hair follicles to stop or significantly slow future hair growth. BBL is the same technology behind popular skin treatments Forever Young™ BBL and Forever Clear®.

Where Can I Have Laser Hair Removal Done?

Laser hair removal is safe and effective for just about anywhere on the body, including the:

  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Bikini area
  • Legs

Depending on the results you’re looking for, you may also want to try our esthetician services, including brow waxing and dermaplaning, which shaves away facial peach fuzz.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

Forever Bare’s continuous cooling will keep your skin comfortable throughout your treatment. Our experienced providers also have topical numbing creams available to help you manage any discomfort as needed.

Forever Bare has a large spot size, meaning it treats many follicles at once and makes treatments even more quick and efficient. Treatments can take anywhere from 5 to 45 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

What Is Laser Hair Removal Recovery Like?

You may notice some redness or sensitivity in your treated areas after your treatment, but this should fade away within a few hours. Your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun for the next few weeks, so you’ll need to be diligent about wearing SPF and avoiding direct sun exposure.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?

We recommend a series of 6 to 8 sessions spaced about a month apart to see the best results. This is because follicles enter the active growth state at different times, and a series of treatments targets as many active follicles as possible to give you a comprehensive result.

How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?

Laser hair removal results are generally very long-lasting. Some people choose to come back every year or so to touch up their results and make sure their skin is as smooth and hairless as possible.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?

The price of laser hair removal at our Des Moines-area med spa varies from person to person, depending on the size of your treatment area and the number of sessions needed. During your consultation, we’ll provide a personalized pricing estimate based on your treatment plan.

Stef Gatica is kind, caring and professional. She went out of her way to help me after being rejected by 2 other clinics. I received filler and botox and the results are amazing.
