What is Laser Hair Removal?
Hair removal with a laser is one of the most popular elective procedures in the United States. It is a convenient method for the long-term removal of hair follicles on the face and body. This procedure typically leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother and produces great, lasting results compared to other options. Dr. Philip Rettenmaier at NoSweat Fort Wayne performs safe and effective laser hair removal services for both women and men utilizing the Soprano ICE™ technology. For more information on how you can have laser hair reduction in common areas, like the legs, back, arms, face, armpits, and bikini area, contact our Fort Wayne, IN office today.
"I've been going to Dr. Rettenmeir for several years now for tattoo removal. (I can't seem to learn my lesson about tattooing or microblading my brows.) Each time I see him, he is not just professional, but very caring. He is also helping me improve a raised scar on my face with the Opus Fractional Plasma device. This device has made dramatic changes to the appearance of my scar that it's almost gone. I definitely recommend seeing Dr. Rettenmeir for tattoo removal and scar issues."- A.D. / Google / Oct 11, 2021

What Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
On the day of your laser hair removal appointment, we'll have you relax in a private treatment room as the needed areas of your skin are cleaned to eliminate dirt, oil, and moisturizers. During your treatment, a technician will stretch out the area to provide a clear path between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The energy from the laser will target and kill the follicle, which stops the targeted hair from growing again. Usually, you will need 3 – 5 treatments over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to achieve your optimal results. This also gives the treated areas a chance to recover and allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase to reach the phase of active growth so they can be treated. The specialized laser hair removing technology we use at NoSweat Fort Wayne is able to target only the hair follicle while protecting your skin. After your treatment, your skin may look like it has a slight sunburn due to the use of lasers. Feel free to go back to all normal activities when you leave our office, but try to avoid strenuous activity or sun exposure for at least a day while your skin recovers. We recommend soothing creams or cold packs to treat any discomfort.
