Laser Hair Removal Reviews
"Body Bar MD in Terre Haute is so wonderful. As a trans woman who is in the middle of transition, I could not be more thankful for how kind and professional Laura McHale and the staff at the Terre Haute office are. I was so scared of how staff might treat me when I made my first appointment for laser hair removal, but my fears were unfounded. They are all so kind and affirming and treat their patients with kindness and dignity. I feel happy every time I go in for an appointment, and more confident each time too. It can be hard to feel vulnerable, but my experience has shown that people at Body Bar like Laura McHale are kind and understanding and will strive to make you feel comfortable and safe. Terre Haute is so lucky to have them."- B.“. / Google / Dec 27, 2022
"I began seeing Laura for laser hair removal in June of 2022. I started seeing results after my first treatment! Her lasers are virtually painless and I am so thrilled with the results I continue to get as I move on to other areas. The front desk is always kind and welcoming. 10/10 would recommend BodyBar MD!"- K.A. / Google / May 09, 2023
"Im 54 years old I first went to see Dr. Kristi to help me with my face and had a wonderful consult. I started with a vampire facelift and some Botox. Then I had all the dark spots removed. Then laser hair removal on my face. I then had threads put in for some lift in my cheeks. That all started Oct 2022, The outcome has been great. Dr. Kristi also talked to me about nutrition and we did an intensive lab panel and was I surprised!! I had mentioned to her I have been in excessive pain throughout my entire body for the last 4 years and my symptoms were exactly the same as Fibromyalgia, the pain level is always about 8/10 on the pain scale. What Dr. Kristi found in my labs was that I have been through menopause which I did not know due to having a Myrania and my hormones were so low and several other labs were completely out of control My regular Dr. had never taken the time to look for other lab irregularities even though I have talked to him several times over the years. Dr.Kristi suggested the Bio T pellets and four weeks after I got my first one I realized my pain was all gone. It’s been 4 months and today I got my second one. Its worth every penny. I also have lost 15 pounds in 3 months by changing my diet to her recommendations. I just became a grandma but I refuse to look like one or act like one. Dr.Kristi is a youth saver. Thank you so much Dr.Kristi and your excellent team. Im definitely sticking with you."- T.P. / Google / Jul 06, 2023

Can I Get Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal at Body Bar MD is a safe treatment that is helpful for many of our Carmel, IN patients. In your initial consultation, Dr. Christy will go over your concerns, needs, and goals to help you decide if laser hair removal is the right treatment for you. Using Alma Soprano ICE, we are able to target a variety of skin colors and hair types. Ideal patients for laser hair removal treatments:
- Have hair in an unwanted place, like their face or body
- Are tired of waxing, shaving, bleaching, and other short-term hair removal options
- Are in good, overall physical health
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
At your appointment, we will have you relax in one of our comfortable treatment chairs while we wash your skin to remove any dirt, oil, lotions, etc. We'll then start the laser hair removal process using the revolutionary Alma Soprano ICE device. One of our team members will stretch out the treatment area to create a clear path between the laser and the hair follicle root. The energy from the laser will target and destroy the follicle, preventing the hair from growing back. The ICE technology cools your skin to minimize the risk of burn, making the procedure more enjoyable. The length of the procedure depends on what areas you are having treated; however, most appointments should not last longer than one hour. On average, you will need to get 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your sessions will be staggered to give the treated areas time to heal. It also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase of growth to cycle into the active growth phase so the laser can be effective. Contact Body Bar MD in either Carmel or Terre Haute, IN for more information.
What Can I Expect After My Laser Hair Removal?
Using Alma Soprano ICE, the revolutionary cooling technology cools your skin while maintaining heat at the treatment site. This makes a more enjoyable experience but also reduces the risk of burn. However, you may notice your skin feels like it has a mild sunburn where we used the lasers. Rest assured, this should not last long. Feel free to resume typical daily activities right after your appointment, but try to avoid things like exercising and extended time outdoors for a day or two while your skin heals. Dr. Christy will recommend some cooling creams to use at home. You will likely need multiple treatments so we will help you schedule your next appointment.
