What to Know Before You Get Laser Hair Removal

Lower Leg Laser Hair Removal Des Moines

If you’re new to the world of laser hair removal, you might have a lot of questions. Is it safe? Is it effective? How much is it going to cost you? Is it right for your skin type? These are all very valid questions to be asking yourself, and we’re glad you’re concerned about your safety, well being, and the quality of our services. This only excites us, because we are on your team! We will even dare to say that we care about these things more than you do! Not only do we want you to look and feel your best, satisfaction and safety are also our number one priorities! 

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a modern alternative to the old fashioned ways of removing body hair. Sure, you can do it old school and get involved with shaving, waxing, and plucking, and you might be thinking “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it,” but hear us out for a second. Laser hair removal is quick, virtually painless, good for all skin types, and longer lasting than the old guard. You’ll find that your skin will remain silky smooth for longer periods of time than what you’re usually used to if you’ve never tried laser hair removal before. By gradually heating the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages hair follicles, hair is prevented from growing back.

So, what’s the deal with this laser? 

We use only the best! We are equipped with an Alma laser that is on the cutting edge of SHR™ technology. Combining multiple clinically proven technologies, like skin resurfacing and laser hair removal, to treat nearly 70 FDA-cleared indications, our laser offers the widest range of aesthetic solutions. If that’s not versatile enough for you, our technology features plug-and-play handpieces to help us meet any laser hair removal needs you may have. This Alma Laser achieves superior results due to its use of the patented SHR™ technology, which has earned global recognition and is used in top level clinics worldwide.

That’s the technology that goes into our process, but you might still have some questions that we will answer for you right here!


Is my skin tone and hair color eligible for laser hair removal? 

Of course! Multiple clinical studies have proven that this is the safest hair removal technology for ALL skin types! 

Is it painful, and is there downtime?

Our use of Alma Laser technology will keep you comfortable and virtually pain-free. Even better, if you’re on the go, and need to get back to work or the gym, you’ll be able to get right back to it. 

How long does laser hair treatment take? 

Our technology allows us to perform speed treatments on any part of the body. A few minutes is all we need. It’s so quick, you might want to check out some of our other treatments! 

Is there anything that will put me at risk?

While our services are safe and effective, there are some risk factors that some people may have which would not be recommended for our treatments. If you’re taking antibiotics and photosensitive medications that can’t be discontinued, you will be at risk. Additionally, having any form of damaged skin will not work with our laser hair removal services. When in doubt, consult your physician so there’s no confusion. Your safety is so important to us, and we want to do right by you. 

Okay, I’m in! Is there anything else I should know?

We know that you’re going to love our services, and how we make you look and feel. Our first time clients often become repeat clients, and that says a lot about how welcome you will feel when you step into our spa. Our relationships become long-term and it’s for a good reason! We want you to be comfortable in your own skin, and we’re the experts. Whether you are new to the whole process, or just new in town and need a new spa to meet your needs, we’d like to deliver to you what we’re passionate about: being your best self.
