The Medi Spa at Ridgewood offers laser hair removal to people in the Roanoke Valley and surrounding areas including Salem, Blacksburg, Lynchburg and West Virginia, who want to permanently remove unsightly hair.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

As a non-invasive procedure, laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that permanently reduces unwanted and excess hair from areas of the body using a laser that selectively destroys the root without harming the skin.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

  • Precisely targets the selected area
  • Permanent
  • More effective as opposed to methods like electrolysis

How is Laser Hair Removal Performed?

The Cynosure Apogee Elite™ laser produces an intense, localized pulse of energy that penetrates deeply enough to reach the hair root, where it is absorbed by the pigment, or color. Each pulse lasts for only several thousandths of a second, so the energy from the beam is almost completely absorbed by the hair bulb. The hair in the treated follicle is shed over a period of weeks, and the remnants of the root are reabsorbed by the body. The Cynosure Apogee Elite™ provides a safe, fast, gentle and effective method for laser hair removal. It takes approximately five to eight treatments to get the best results.

Laser Hair Removal Recovery

Laser hair removal can cause some discomfort; however, most of our patients tolerate the procedure well. Some individuals feel a mild stinging or burning, but this discomfort subsides when each treatment ends. As some parts of the body are more sensitive than others, a topical anesthesia can be used.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?

The cost of laser hair removal depends on the  treatment area and the time needed for the procedure. We accept cash, checks and credit cards including VISA®, MasterCard® and Discover®. We also offer financing through CareCredit®. Payment in full is required prior to your procedure.

Is Laser Hair Removal Right for Me?

As laser hair removal has been refined, it has become the preferred method for permanent hair reduction, replacing shaving, tweezing, waxing and electrolysis. If you have unwanted  dark hair on parts of your body then laser hair removal is the perfect process to restore your quality of life and confidence.
