Frequently Asked Questions

Can anybody get laser hair removal?

Just about everybody is a candidate for laser hair removal at Rejuvenating Spa Services. Because of the type of laser we use, we can treat just about any skin type, light, dark, or tan. However, the lighter the skin is, the more effective the laser hair removal will be, so it is best to try to keep the body area being treated out of the sun while you are getting treatments. Certain medications and hormones may react with the laser, so if you are taking any photosensitive medications, you will want to give us a call to see if it may cause a reaction to the laser. Because the laser is attracted to the melanin in the hair shaft, the treated hair must have color in order for the follicle to be destroyed by the laser. This means that light blonde, Gray, white, or light reddish-blonde hair will not be affected. We will let you know if your hair can be treated during your free consultation. Because hormones are the main predictor of hair growth, it would not be a good idea for a pre-teen to be lasered until they are through puberty. Pregnant women should wait to start laser hair removal until after delivery.

Does it hurt?

Rejuvenating Spa Services uses the Candela GentleEase™ laser. It is the most gentle laser available for hair removal, due to their patented cooling devices. The laser cooling device emits a small burst of cryogen before each pulse.  Many people describe the sensation as being similar to a quick rubber band snap. After the procedure patients may experience slight redness. This typically subsides within minutes to one day after treatment. Cool Aloe Vera gel or cold towels are also available to minimize redness. Numbing cream is available for our clients as well.  You will be fine to carry on with your day immediately after treatment.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

The FDA has stated that our laser is effective for "permanent hair reduction". Laser hair removal effectively eliminates most of the hair with color, and hair that is in an active growth phase. As mentioned above, light blonde hair and other hair that is nearly colorless will not be heated enough by the laser to destroy the follicle.

Why doesn't Rejuvenating Spa Services offer a guarantee or memberships?

Rejuvenating Spa Services does not believe in tricks or gimmicks to attract customers.  We offer the lowest prices available because rely on referrals and repeat customers. 

What body areas can be treated?

Because of the safe cooling features of our lasers, just about anybody area can be treated. This includes such sensitive areas as the lip, ears, nose, and groin area. The only areas that cannot be treated are those covered with a tattoo or permanent makeup, and the eyelid, due to sensitivity of the eyes to laser light.

 Is there a difference between laser and IPL?

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment, which is very common around the area, is generally referred to as laser hair removal, even though it does not use a true laser. IPL machines have a shorter wavelength than most lasers and are not as effective at targeting deeper, thicker hair; they are more successful when used to remove fine, thin hairs with shallow roots. Although it is not the best machine for hair removal, several med-spas choose IPL's because they are versatile, relatively inexpensive and can do many other types of skin treatments that the med-spas offer. At Rejuvenating Spa Services, you are not going to be treated with a machine that is ok for hair removal, but great at doing photofacials or leg veins. Our goal is hair removal only and we use the best, state-of-the-art technology available for hair removal.

How many laser treatments will I need?

This is probably the most frequently asked question.  Unfortunately it is the most difficult to answer. Many factors such as hormones, age, ethnicity, weight, metabolism, and medication all influence the body's hair growth. So, because each person's skin and hair are different, results may differ from person to person. To remove the hair, you will most likely need at least 6-8 treatments. This is because hair grows in cycles, and only the follicles that are in an active growth stage at the time of the treatment are eliminated. When the next stage of hair becomes active (about 4-8 weeks later), you will come on back to zap those hairs while they are in their active growth stage. If another salon is promising you results in fewer treatments, they are probably not being completely honest or are maybe too inexperienced to know the facts. Because of this, we've decided that if you do need more than 6 full treatments to effectively get rid of your hair, we'll give you 50% off the rest of your treatments for that body area.

Is laser hair removal safe?

The FDA has approved our lasers for safe and effective hair removal, and the treatments are noninvasive and can be customized to each person's individual skin type, making it very safe for just about everybody. You may experience some redness or swelling, but this is temporary and does not cause pain. In addition, all of our Certified Medical Laser Technicians have completed an extensive laser training course that has been approved by the State of Texas.
