Laser Hair Removal Reviews
"I started going to LP Aesthetics shortly after they opened in my neighborhood. I got a few facials and was impressed by how clean it is in there and how kind/friendly all of the employees are!I regularly see their esthetician Danie for facials and went to her for laser hair removal as well. She is absolutely amazing! She is sweet, bubbly and very thorough-always making sure each procedure is perfectly to my liking/my skins needs. Since going to Danie I’ve seen a substantial improvement in my skin. I’ve gotten my my mom and several friends hooked on Danie as well. If you are looking for a great esthetician, look no further!"- D.R. / Yelp / Aug 04, 2014
"I bought a Groupon for laser hair removal. I ended up with Judy, who was very nice and knowledgeable. I recently finished my last appointment and the results are great! I would definitely recommend them."- R.L. / Yelp / Oct 21, 2015
"I purchased a Groupon for laser hair removal after a friend recommended LPA and I couldn’t have been more impressed. It was so quick and easy I would definitely recommend it. Danie is very knowledgeable about skin care and was sensitive to my questions and concerns. I also have an unpredictable work schedule and Danie always made sure to squeeze me in on late notice so I stayed on track with my appointments. I now go to her for facials and all my skin care questions!"- E.W. / Yelp / Sep 16, 2014
"I’ve been going to Meagan for a few months now after using a groupon for laser hair removal. The first time I came I was extremely nervous, but she made sure I was comfortable and explained everything she was doing step by step. She is the best! So professional, kind, timely, and personable. I look forward to coming to see her every month! Highly recommend coming to see Meagan if you need any services done!"- J.H. / Yelp / Mar 12, 2019
"Love, love, love this place. Talk about an amazing experience. I bought a groupon for laser hair removal and have since added on about 4 other treatments with Danie. She is the BEST! Super sweet and knows her trade. The owner, Frank, is always there and couldn’t be any nicer. Highly recommend for any treatment, worth the money!!!"- B.T. / Yelp / Jan 10, 2014
DO I Qualify for laser hair removal?
How dense your hair grows, how quickly your hair regrows, and where you would like laser hair removal are all determining factors. At your consultation, we will go over your needs, concerns, and goals so we can decide if you are a good candidate for the procedure. You may be an excellent candidate for laser hair removal treatments if you:
- Have unwanted face or body hair
- No longer want to rely on short-term hair removal techniques (waxing, shaving, plucking, threading, or depilatory creams)
- Do not have a medical condition that prohibits the use of the laser
- Are in good health
Our Laser Hair Removal Technique
When you come into Lincoln Park Aesthetics for laser hair removal, your privacy and safety are our utmost priority. We will take you to a treatment room set up with our Lumenis Splendor X laser. You can lie in a private treatment room as areas of your face or body are being prepared for the laser with gel. Your certified laser technician will stretch out the area to create a clear pathway between the hair follicle root and the laser. The laser beam will focus on the destruction of the hair follicle and will preserve the skin and other tissue in the area being treated.
On average, you will need to get 3 – 5 sessions over 3 – 4 weeks to get ideal results. Your appointments should be scheduled to accommodate your hair growth. This also allows time for follicles in the dormant growth phase to go into an active phase to be treated.
What to Expect
Although laser hair removal may not seem relatively gentle in nature, we can make sure you are relaxed and comfortable during your sessions. Keep in mind, your skin may look like it has a light sunburn afterward because of the laser. When you leave our office, you will able to resume your daily activities. Please avoid heavy activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least a day to let the treated skin heal. When you get home following your treatment, we suggest anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to minimize any discomfort.
