What is Laser Hair Removal?

Here at Réviance® , we use FDA-approved laser technology to give you the results that you want. Procedures are safe, effective and require no down time at all.

How is Laser Hair Removal Performed?

Our laser hair removal treatments are performed in our office using the Alma Soprano XL laser. As seen on the popular daytime television show, “The Doctors,” this laser works by emitting pulses of infrared diode laser energy to gradually heat the hair follicles in the subdermal layer of skin until they can no longer produce new hair. And with the unique, IN-Motion™ technology and a patented DualChill™ treatment tip, we can ensure that the surface of your skin is cool and comfortable throughout the treatment. The sweeping motion also eliminates any skipped or missed spots common to other methods of laser hair removal.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

If you’re considering laser hair removal, the best candidates are men and women with dark, course hair and light skin. Unfortunately, patients with blonde, grey or red hair are more difficult to treat.

Talk with your doctor prior to treatment to make sure that you are a good candidate. Pregnant women and those with skin disorders, for example, may not be suited for this procedure.

What Kind of Post-Operative Laser Hair Removal Care Can I Expect?

Following your laser hair removal treatment, you can expect some redness, swelling and soreness in the treatment area. Your doctor will provide you with a specific skin care routine, which includes cleansing instructions and the use of specific lotions or ointments to keep the area moisturized. One of the most important after-care instructions is to stay out of the sun and apply a strong SPF if you will be exposed to it. Aside from that, you’ll be back to normal daily activities immediately.

What are the Typical Results of Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal patients are thrilled with the outcome, as they no longer have to shave, wax or pluck. It’s important to note that you may need follow-up procedures to maintain the best results. For example, treatment of your upper body yields results lasting for about seven to 11 weeks; mid-body results last 10 to 16 weeks; and leg treatments last from 11 to 17 weeks.

What are Laser Hair Removal Costs?

Laser hair removal costs depend on the patient, as the size and number of treatment areas will affect the pricing. All of this will be discussed during your personalized, one-on-one consultation with your surgeon, which is always complimentary. So what do you have to lose?
