Laser Hair Removal Reviews
"This place is spa perfection at Northpark Mall in Dallas, TX. I have been getting laser hair removal and this place is state of the art, super professional and most importantly impeccability clean. I plan to be a patron of this place anytime I need a pick-me-up!"- E.Z. / Yelp / Jun 05, 2010
"They run A LOT of deals so book early! I have been going to this place for a couple years now. I've had facials, IPL, Microderm, laser hair removal, hair color/cut, mani pedi. The front desk and the people providing the services don't always communicate with each other. It takes a long time to book an appt but they have cancellations so you can always call that day and see if there's been any cancellations and if you can get it..it's happened sometimes but not that often. I'll continue to return and would recommend. I think the people doing the procedures are experienced and professional."- R.L. / Yelp / Nov 30, 2012
"This review is for Renew's laser hair removal services. I bought a groupon to get my underarms lasered. $100 to not have hairy armpits ever again = screaming deal! I've had four out of six treatments so far and been very satisfied with both the quality of the service and the results. Whitney is so nice and takes time to answer all my questions. The salon itself is clean and modern looking. I've been able to get appointments when I needed them. You don't have to be a first-time customer to buy the groupon, so I'm contemplating buying another groupon to do my legs with them. Highly recommend!"- M.B. / Yelp / Mar 23, 2013
"I recommend Renew. Great technicians, great location, and a full range of services. I have been going to Renew for about three years now. I have had everything from Botox, Laser Hair Removal, IPL, Manicures and a Brazilian Blowout and hair cut. The technicians to be very professional and good, particularly the ones doing Botox and Lasers. (kudos to Allison, Rex, Angela and Felicia! All excellent) You have to book ahead and be a little flexible to get the times you need, but the more you go in the better they come to know you. I have had some appointments that were mixed up by the busy front desk, but I have been treated to microderms or manicures to compensate me for my lost time. All in all, I recommend this place to all my friends. They do a great job and if you are a repeat customer they meet or beat most Groupon prices in town."- J.C. / Yelp / Apr 08, 2013
"Everyone at Renew has been incredibly kind and professional. The manager always goes out of her way to take care of all of her customer's and is always happy to answer any questions. Every experience I have had here with the laser hair removal as well as purchasing hair and skin products has been great. I have no met and employee that wasn't kind and happy to help! Thank you Renew!"- A.H. / Yelp / Oct 08, 2010
Reducing hair follicle growth with a laser is a gentle process that is suitable for most patients. In your consultation, you will talk about your needs, concerns, and goals to help determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal patients for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Are tired of other hair removal methods (shaving, waxing, depilatory creams, bleaching)
- Have darker hair with lighter skin
- Are in overall, good health
At your laser hair removal appointment, you can relax in one of our treatment rooms as the needed areas of your skin are cleaned to remove dirt, oil, and moisturizers. During laser hair removal, a technician will stretch out the skin to provide a direct path between the root of the hair follicle and the laser. The selected laser's energy will target and disable the hair follicle, which stops it from growing back. Usually, you will need 3 – 5 sessions over a period of 3 – 4 weeks to see your ideal results. Your appointments will be spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to recover. This also allows time for hair follicles that were in the dormant phase of growth to reach the active growth phase so they can be treated. The state-of-the-art technology we use at Renew Beauty Med Spa & Wellness Center is able to target the hair follicle alone to preserve the skin in the area being treated.
What to Expect
While the treatment is relatively gentle in nature, your skin may feel like it has a light sunburn since lasers are used. After your session, you will be free to resume your daily activities, but you should refrain from heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for a period of 24 hours to let the treated areas heal. When you get home after your appointment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to treat any discomfort.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that varies in cost, depending on the coverage area being addressed on the body, as well as how many sessions are needed to attain a smooth, hairless result. When we discuss pricing with our patients, we often bring up the costs associated with waxing and how this can add up over time, especially if you get waxed on a regular basis year after year. Laser hair removal is more costly than waxing or other hair removal methods, but it is generally the most effective. We will create a custom plan for you that includes the total number of sessions recommended and pricing options to consider.
How effective is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is known to be a solid solution for hair removal. While some men and women can enjoy the benefits of the treatment for years, it is considered semi-permanent in some cases. Meaning, there could potentially be some hair growth that occurs in areas where the laser technology did not hit. Regardless, patients find the majority of the hair will be gone after their treatment plan has concluded and even if some hairs pop up, it is very easy to manage. Most patients find they receive a smooth result. Additional laser hair removal treatments can also be scheduled to take care of any stragglers or new growth as well.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair growth occurs in varying cycles. While some hair may be in a live growing phase, others may be dormant. Since each follicle grows in various stages, multiple treatment sessions are typically needed to target each hair and follicle at its growing phase. Between treatment sessions, the hairs that do grow can be shaved because the follicle is not affected. Laser hair removal removes the hair from the follicle, but the laser must be able to see the hair to remove it. If a follicle is dormant, it is harder for the laser to read. Spreading out your sessions over various weeks helps remove each follicle for the smoothest, most effective result.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal may cause some minor discomfort, but it is not considered a painful procedure. Most patients will feel a slight sting when the laser targets and removes the hair follicle. We can apply a numbing ointment to the surface of the skin prior to the start of the treatment session. For patients who are used to getting waxed, they report that laser hair removal causes much less discomfort than a normal waxing session.
Which laser is best to remove hair?
There are many great lasers on the market today. Renew Beauty Med Spa & Salon is proud to offer the latest hair removal technology for patients of varying hair types. The lasers we invest in offer excellent results, and we continue to upgrade our technologies as newer lasers enter the marketplace and become available. We encourage you to ask us about our in-house technology during your laser hair removal consultation.
