This East Hyde Park-based laser treatment center makes laser treatments safe, accessible and easy for everyone. Read on for the not-so-hairy details.
What do you do when you don’t want whimsical tattoo on your shoulder anymore? This question set the premise for the opening of Re.You Studio. Re.You Studio specializes in laser tattoo removal, as well as laser hair removal, laser facial rejuvenation – ranging from helping sun-damaged skin to pigmented lesions – and laser nail fungus removal. Teresa Wade, founder and co-owner, opened the “stand-alone” laser treatment center in March 2013.
“We spent a year researching trends and looking at various business models and franchises, and we realized that tattoos were a hot trend that was only getting hotter,” says Ward. “We saw that in other parts of the country laser removal studios were becoming a huge business opportunity. We seized on the idea and Re.You Studio was born.”
A board of certified and laser-trained physicians conducts Re.You Studio’s services. They offer not only laser services but electrolysis for hair removal as well, thus ensuring permanent hair removal for all different types of people.
“This might seem like a totally aesthetic procedure or a luxury service, but many people suffer from embarrassment and social avoidance due to visible and excess facial and/or body hair – so we are pleased to offer a complete solution,” says Ward.
“Many upscale doctors’ offices or clinics that offer laser removal treatments can be expensive and inaccessible to the average consumer,” Ward continues. “We created Re.You in order to satisfy the need and desire for cutting-edge treatments at affordable prices – in a welcoming, comfortable environment. Unlike many local hair laser competitors, we offer free consultation, no high-pressure sales, and straightforward and affordable pricing.”
With the help of a new and distinct technique called the PinPointe laser, Re.You has the ability to treat toenail fungus safely, quickly and pain-free, administered by their board-certified podiatrists. “No anesthesia, little to no discomfort, no side effects, and zero downtime—you can exercise or polish your toenails immediately after treatment,” Ward explains. “In offering all of these services, we pride ourselves on making the cost, and thus treatments, doable for anyone.”
“We wanted to not only start a wonderful business, but to find a way to give back,” says Ward. “So we now offer removal of radiation tattoos for breast cancer survivors and tattoo removal for people in rehab programs or victims of domestic violence.”
“We have truly changed lives,” Ward continues. “Whether it’s removing a tattoo that is a painful reminder of a past relationship or helping someone simply feel more confident and beautiful, this business is really rewarding.” With an increase in demand for laser hair removal, Ward expresses that they are expanding their team at Re.You. “The most recent addition is a wonderful cosmetic therapist who specializes in laser hair removal!” she says. “We have also added a second podiatrist on select Saturday mornings, who performs the laser toenail fungus treatments.”
Re.You Studio will also be a vendor at Cincy Chic’s Seasonably Chic Showcase on Saturday, November 7 at The Phoenix, where they will be offering information and product sampling to attendees.
