Our Services

Laser hair removal in Cincinnati will soften and leave your skin feeling smooth while saving you time and money on shaving or waxing. Unwanted hair growth can appear on many areas of the body and affect both men and women. With laser hair removal, our nurses and physician assistants can safely and effectively help you get rid of unwanted hair from your upper lip, sideburns, chin, ears, chest, back, armpits (axillae), legs, fingers, feet, or toes.

Our laser hair removal near you uses fast laser light to selectively target the hair follicles and permanently destroy the hair bulbs. Over a series of laser treatments, the hair shaft gets thinner as these hair-making cells get eliminated. We use multiple methods of keeping your skin cool as the hair shaft and bulb are destroyed. We protect your skin and make the treatment more comfortable by using cryogen, an air chiller, and a cool-tipped laser.

Due to the advanced technology of our laser systems, we, at Limelight Laser and Medical Spa, can effectively treat all skin types, including darker skin types. We use the Lumenis Lightsheer, an 810 nm wavelength laser, for lighter skin types, and the Cutera Xeo, a 1064 nm wavelength laser, which is safe and effective for darker skin types.

Lumenis LightSheer

The Lumenis LightSheer is an 810 nm wavelength laser that is safe and effective for lighter skin types. Over several treatments, the Lumenis Lightsheer targets hair follicle cells, destroying the hair shaft and bulb and permanently reducing or getting rid of unwanted hair growth. We can use this cutting-edge technology in any area of the body to eliminate unwanted hair growth. 

It is important to note that laser hair removal is most effective when the hair is pigmented, and there is some contrast between hair color and skin color. This typically means that if the hair is white or grey, it is difficult to treat.

The Cutera Xeo is a 1064 nm wavelength laser that is safe and effective for darker skin types. Over several treatments, the Cutera Xeo targets unwanted hair follicle cells, destroying the hair shaft and bulb and permanently reducing or eliminating the regrowth of unwanted hair. We can use this treatment to address unwanted hair growth in any area of your body.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Is Laser Hair Removal Effective in Getting Rid of Unwanted Hair?

With the correct laser devices and treatment parameters, laser hair removal is effective at permanently reducing hair growth on any area of the body. At our medical spa, we use some of the best laser technologies in the industry to help you achieve your hair removal goals.

I Have Darker Skin. Can I Still Get Laser Hair Removal?

Yes, we own state-of-the-art lasers that are effective and safe for darker skin types as well. Since there is more pigment in the skin, darker skin types require a few more treatments than lighter skin types, so you should expect to get 8–10 treatments to see great results.

Does Laser Hair Removal Work on All Hair Types?

Since laser light targets pigment in the hair, the best candidates for laser hair removal are people with darker hair. Laser hair removal in patients with red, grey, white, or pure blonde hair can be challenging and not as effective.

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

At Limelight Laser and Medical Spa, we offer the most innovative techniques to make our laser hair removal process comfortable, enjoyable, and effective. All lasers have a built-in cooling mechanism to cool and protect the skin while the laser targets the hair bulb and stem cells below the skin. In addition, we will often use an external device that blows cold air onto the treatment area to reduce any minor pain associated with the hair removal device. 

Lastly, we can offer you some numbing cream to use on the more sensitive areas to reduce any discomfort.

How Much do Laser Hair Removal Treatments Cost?

Curious about how much a session of laser hair removal in Cincinnati costs? Many websites do not list their prices and then try to sell you on an expensive package. At Limelight Laser and Medical Spa, we believe that transparency in pricing is the best way to build trust. 

Here are some examples of pricing for the more common areas (our prices are per treatment.):

  • Underarms: $125
  • Upper lip: $85/tx
  • Bikini: $125–$175/tx
  • Man’s back: $185–$235/tx
  • Legs: $275/tx

How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need, and Will I Need Touch-Up Treatments?

Typically, to get the best results, you should plan on getting at least 6–8 treatments. We are so confident that you will see lasting results after just 8 treatments that any additional treatments necessary in the same one-year period are 50% off. Often, you will need an occasional touch-up treatment every 1–2 years.
