Laser Hair Removal Reviews
"First off, I am slightly obsessed with laser hair removal and I do a lot of Groupons for it. Jordan is the first person I’ve encountered that makes me want to go back to JUST HER. I’m moving to California and I am trying to plan how I can come back to Chicago to see her. I feel like she cared about how my treatments were going versus just telling me they were "upping it" and "here we go". She seemed to genuinely want to know. The comfort level was there where I felt like I could ask about other areas I wanted done versus feeling like I was an in and out customer. By far the BEST experience I have had."- C.I. / Yelp / Oct 01, 2019
"I signed up for the Laser Hair Removal Package a few months ago, and couldn't be happier. I've been working with Crystal who is amazing all around. I generally can get pretty anxious when it comes to others seeing parts of my body that I'm not comfortable with. I've never once felt judged or uncomfortable in her presence. I'm currently 3 treatments in and can already see a noticeable difference in the hair growth that I have and am already feeling more comfortable to go out to the gym and lift my arms above my head without looking around wondering if anyone notices my baby stubble. I'll definitely keep going to LPA. 1) for the results and 2) for people like Crystal that make it a warm and comfortable place to be for an anxious person like me!"- M.A. / Google / Apr 21, 2021
"I came here for laser hair removal for unwanted neckbeard and hair on the back of my neck. The spa is easy to find and nice inside. They have all of the best equipment and they know what they’re doing. The price is fair. Sure you may be able to pay less somewhere else but here you pay for top quality, honesty, and great results. Ellie performed the treatment and did a great job. She was professional, friendly, and made me feel comfortable the whole time, which was important because I was nervous. The treatment didn’t hurt at all and I’m excited to see the results!"- B.Y. / Yelp / Jul 13, 2021
"This place is amazing! The whole team there, really know what they’re doing! I went in for laser hair removal and microneedling with Ellie, she made both experiences as painless as possible!"- S.S. / Yelp / Jul 20, 2021
"I came here for laser hair removal several years ago (like 6 years ago) and had great success with their old machine. I did a lot of research because laser hair removal can sometimes be less effective on brown people. I came back about once a year for touch ups, then had a couple years away. I used to recommend it to a lot of friends. Well I’ve since been back and i think they’ve had 2 machines since then (supposedly upgrades). Once for a touchup, which i felt did nothing. This last time I got an underarm touchup and started new hair removal on my face. Neither worked --at all. Not even a little bit. Several months later, my hair isn’t even thinner. I told the aesthetician that the underarm touchup didn’t work and she tried to put the setting on higher and gave me another one, but it also did nothing. I think they may say that the face hair is thinner so perhaps it is harder to remove, but the fact that the underarm touchup also didn’t work says otherwise. When i used to go for touchups, I didn’t have to come back for months and months (and basically only did like 1/yr). This service is several hundred dollars, so I’m pretty disappointed, especially since shaving my face isn’t something I would normally have started to do if I wasn’t going in for laser hair removal. I would have rather just leave it. Not sure if they can do anything about the experience."- R.C. / Yelp / Apr 29, 2022
DO I Qualify for laser hair removal?
How dense your hair grows, how quickly your hair regrows, and where you would like laser hair reduction 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 ReductionTechnique
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. Once you privately undress, your laser technician will re-enter the room to begin the treatment. 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 4- 6 sessions spaced apart by about 6-8 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 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.
