Using Alma Soprano ICE, we are able to target a variety of skin colors and hair types. Ideal patients for laser hair removal treatments:

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.
