Unwanted body hair is a frequent problem for men and women. While it doesn’t present any health or medical concerns, body hair can be unsightly and will cause self-confidence issues. Many of you may prefer to remove your hair, but hate the constant effort and pain associated with shaving or waxing. This is why Rejuve Med Spa offers laser hair removal treatment. It’s a super-effective way of getting rid of body hair without the stress of waxing or shaving.
The general idea of laser hair removal is that lasers are applied to your body, generating energy. The hair follicles will then absorb this energy, essentially burning up. As a result, the follicles will be removed and destroyed, so they won’t grow back. A few treatments are required, largely because the only hair follicles that absorb the energy are ones in the active stage of growth. It’s believed that 20% of your hair follicles exist in this phase at any given time, hence the need for multiple treatments to catch them all.
About Laser Hair Removal Sessions
A typical session can last anywhere between 15-60 minutes. It all depends on the amount of hair being removed from the body. Larger areas – like your back or legs – will be closer to the 60-minute mark than places like your upper lip or underarms.
Furthermore, you will need to come back for more sessions if you want to see the true long-lasting effects of laser hair removal. At Rejuve Med Spa, we encourage our patients to come back 7-8 times to completely remove their hair. These treatments will be 6- weeks apart to let your resting hairs enter the active growth stage. After the 7-8 treatments, we suggest coming back for an appointment once a year for maintenance purposes.
One of the key benefits of laser hair removal is that it is genuinely very effective at removing hair for long periods of time. It’s proven to remove your hair down to the follicle, meaning it won’t grow back. Many people see it as a near permanent hair removal solution, though some hairs within an area may appear after the treatment.
Another benefit is that it is virtually painless and yields hardly any side effects. There may be slight redness or burning during the treatment, but our aftercare products ensure you barely notice a thing. Compared to waxing and shaving, there is much less pain, and you don’t have to worry about cutting yourself!

“This was my first time ever getting laser hair removal. I’ve had a great experience, from the moment I walked in for my consultation. I was offered something to drink, and made comfortable in the waiting room while filling out the paperwork. I met with Karen and she was very informative of the procedure, answered my questions and concerns. Time came for my first appointment, and Morgan was wonderful. She was pleasant and explained what was going to happen, and how long it would take. She made me feel calm and relaxed during the whole procedure.” *
