How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
At your appointment, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as the needed areas of your skin are cleaned to remove oil, dirt, and creams. A technician stretches the skin during the procedure to create a direct path between the laser and the hair follicle root. The energy from the laser will target and destroy the follicle, which prevents the hair from growing back. Typically, you will need to get a few sessions over a period of a month or more to achieve your ideal results. Your sessions are staggered to allow the affected areas time to heal. This also allows time for hair follicles in the dormant growth phase to change to the active growth phase so they can be treated. Our state-of-the-art laser technology at RenewMD Medical Spa targets the hair follicle alone, preserving the skin and other tissue in the treated area.
Although laser hair removal is mostly gentle, your skin may look like it has a light sunburn since lasers are used. After your treatment, you are free to resume all normal activities, but you need to avoid strenuous activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for 24 hours to let the treated areas recover. When you get home after your session, we suggest anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to treat any mild discomfort.
Laser Hair Removal Reviews
I went to Renew MD for the first time recently, and I’m glad I did. Their staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. I’ve only gotten two facial laser treatments done, but the team helped me pick a great package for my specific skin and made sure I was prepared for the process. I highly recommend!
I love Renew MD! I have been going to them for over 6 months, and have had a variety of services performed, including facials, massages, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments. The staff is very knowledgeable, professional, and personable. I have found their prices to be competitive, and have left perfectly satisfied every time. They have monthly specials that make the treatments I was interested in much more affordable. I highly recommend this place!

Laser Hair Removal FAQs
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that varies in cost based on the coverage area being addressed on the body, plus how many treatment sessions you will need to get optimal results. To help you consider the benefits of choosing laser hair removal, estimate the time and energy spent on waxing, shaving, or other temporary methods. In comparison, laser hair removal is generally cheaper and will save you long-term energy and time. Our team will create a personalized plan for you that includes the total number of sessions we suggest and costs.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Considered an effective treatment, laser hair removal produces lasting improvements. While men and women can enjoy the treatment results for years, it's technically semi-permanent because some hair may continue growing. Regardless, patients find most of their hair is not growing anymore after their treatment plan is done, and if stray hairs pop up, it is very easy to deal with. More laser hair removal sessions can be scheduled to take care of new growth and any stragglers as well.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Follicles grow in phases. While some follicles are in a live growing phase, others are dormant. Because every follicle grows in various stages, several sessions are usually suggested to target each hair when it is in a growing phase. Scheduling your sessions over a few weeks so you get better, smoother results.
