Our Services

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

Laser hair removal treatment uses fast laser light to selectively target the hair follicles pigment, permanently destroying the hair bulb and stem cells. Over a series of treatments, the hair shaft gets thinner as these hair making cells are eliminated. During the hair removal procedure, we use multiple methods of keeping the skin cool while the hair shaft and bulb are destroyed. We use cryogen, an air chiller, and/or a cool tipped laser which not only protects the skin but makes the treatment more comfortable.

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

Lumenis LightSheer

The Lumenis Lightsheer is a 810 nm wavelength laser which is safe and effective for use on lighter skin types. Over a course of several treatments, the Lumenis Lightsheer targets hair follicle cells, destroying the hair shaft and bulb and permanently reducing or removing hair growth. This device can be used on any area of the body. 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 very difficult to treat.

Over a course of several treatments, the Cutera Xeo targets hair follicle cells, destroying the hair shaft and bulb and permanently reducing or removing hair growth. This treatment can be used on any area of the body.

Laser Hair Removal FAQ

Is laser hair removal effective?
With the right devices and treatment parameters, laser hair removal is extremely effective at permanently reducing hair growth on any area of the body.

I have darker skin. Can I still get laser hair removal?
Yes, Limelight Medical Spa owns state-of-the-art lasers that are effective and safe for darker skin types. Because 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.

Does laser hair removal work on all hair types?
Because the laser light is targeting pigment, 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 the 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 on 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 does laser hair removal cost?
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. Therefore, our prices are per treatment. Here are some examples of pricing for the more common areas:

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

How many treatments will I need, and will I need touch up treatments?
Typically, to get the best results, you should plan on having 6-8 treatments. We are so confident that you will see lasting results after 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.
