Effective Laser Hair Removal Treatments
If shaving, waxing, or plucking are ineffective or taking up too much of your time, laser hair removal is your answer. Skinovatio Medical Spa is proud to offer laser hair removal in Chicago, IL. Our experienced team can target small or large treatment areas. Our laser hair removal service is a highly effective, modern approach to smoothing your skin. The treatment involves using laser energy which targets hair at its growth center. This causes the natural hair growth cycle to be disrupted. Your hair will no longer be able to grow and will fall out within a week or two. While hair may grow back during your next growth cycle, hair comes back thinner and lighter every time it’s treated with a laser. Almost all targeted hair will stop growing back entirely after a series of treatments. Getting rid of your unwanted hair does not need to be a nuisance. The team at Skinovatio Medical Spa performs these safe, FDA-approved laser hair removal treatments. Get in touch with us to learn more or schedule an appointment.
An Overview of Our Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Here at Skinovatio Medical Spa, we value your privacy and safety. We utilize the latest equipment in hair removal technology, and our team members are highly trained and experienced in laser hair removal techniques. Your laser technician will take you to a private treatment room. They will leave the room while you undress for your treatment. Once they re-enter, the laser beam will be focused on the areas where you want hair removed from, and the treatment will begin. Typically, four to six sessions will be spaced about six to eight weeks apart. Our patients love the results of our laser hair removal services.
What Parts of the Body Does Laser Hair Removal Work On?

- Arms and legs

- Bikini line
- Navel and abdomen

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
For the most part, laser hair removal is permanent. After you finish your laser hair removal package at Skinovatio Medical Spa, your hair is gone for good. It is still possible to regrow new hair based on hormonal fluctuations related to pregnancy, old age, or menopause. If you experience new hair growth, we can re-treat any necessary areas in the future.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?
After you’ve received all of your laser hair removal sessions, your hair should be gone for at least two years. In many cases, laser hair removal is permanent. For some patients, maintenance sessions can help keep specific areas without hair forever.

Our clients have many questions about hair removal by laser, including the best laser hair removal options and more. Check out the answers to the questions we often receive about laser hair removal:
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Most of our patients say that laser hair removal hurts far less than waxing. Some people describe the hair removal process as little pinches, such as having a rubber band snapped against your skin.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Laser hair removal is safe and effective for most patients. We use laser hair removal techniques and technology that are FDA-approved. Laser hair removal should not be used during pregnancy or near your eyes.
What about laser hair removal for dark skin?
There are multiple types of hair removal lasers, and some are better suited for dark skin. The YAG laser goes deep into the skin and successfully bypasses the pigmentation. This makes it a good option for medium to dark skin. Our team would be happy to discuss your best options with you.
