Never shave again. Sound too good to be true? We can assure you it’s not! Our medical laser hair removal can safely and effectively treat virtually anywhere you have unwanted hair.
Laser Hair removal is offered at numerous offices across Central Ohio. As with all treatments we offer at Timeless, we strive to not only treat but to also educate. No laser hair removal is 100% permanent, and if a provider is promising 100% hair free, they are not being 100% transparent.
Laser Hair Removal FAQ’sGet answers to your most pressing questions about this specific treatment. Here are a few that we hear most often:
A typical appointment lasts between 15 minutes to an hour, depending on size of area treated.
One of our highly trained licensed medical professionals will perform your laser hair removal treatment.
It is relatively easy to tolerate. Some patients feel a small pinch each time the laser pulses against the skin, describing the feeling like that of a rubber band snap or pin prick. The sensation is momentary and there is no lingering pain or discomfort. There is less pain noticed with subsequent treatments. We also provide numbing cream to make the treatment more comfortable.
Side effects of laser hair removal are rare, and may include redness, swelling, lip numbness, pigment changes in surrounding skin (especially for dark-skinned patients) and/or scarring.Laser hair removal is safe for people of all skin tones and colors, although we recommend a spot test for those with more melanin in their skin so she can determine how the skin will tolerate treatment.
There is no downtime with laser hair removal. You can return to regular activities.
A thin coat of clear, cool gel is applied over the area to be treated, laser pulses are quickly and evenly applied through a small, cooled handpiece.
Only hairs that are in their active growth cycle at the time of treatment (about 1/4 to 1/3) are disabled, which is why multiple treatments are required. Most patients require an average of 5 treatments, once every 6-8 weeks, followed by maintenance therapy.
Laser hair removal is priced per area and starts at $125. Package pricing is available and offers the best value for our patients.
In order to treat hair with a laser it must have pigment in the hair follicle. This means that grey, blond or light red hair cannot be treated with laser hair removal. We recommend dermaplane for treatment of these hair colors. We recommend a spot test for those with darker skin tones.

Only hairs that are in active growth cycle at the time of treatment (about 1/4 to 1/3) are disabled, which is why multiple treatments may be required.
