What is Laser Hair Removal?

Our experienced team at Body Werks Chicago in Chicago, IL, performs safe and fast laser hair removal services for both men and women in frequently needed areas like the back, legs, arms, face, chest, and bikini area.

"Vanessa was amazing, I thought it would be awkward at first but no, it was the opposite."- Y.P. / Google / Aug 06, 2021
"I booked an appointment back on May 27th which was a Thursday. I knew i was not going to be able to keep my appointment. So i canceled my appointment on Monday before i was scheduled. I asked for my deposit back several times since you had to put it down to reserve an appointment . Nobody never returned my call and my deposit was not returned. It’s now June 13th. I found the staff to be very unprofessional and inconsiderate of my time and money. My recommendation stands is don’t go!! If they treat you like this before being serviced then it only leaves little room for the imagination as to what spirit they’ll work in throughout the process."- V.T. / Facebook / Jun 14, 2021
"The service provided by Vanessa was excellent! I recently had a Vajacial & a sugar Brazilian wax for the first time. I was extremely nervous at first, but she answered all my questions. Vanessa is very knowledgeable about everything which made me very comfortable. I felt like I was talking to one of my friends. I also love the fact all the products they use is all natural. As soon as I walked in the staff was friendly & professional I will be returning for other services soon."- Y.B. / Google / Nov 22, 2020

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a gentle procedure that is helpful for most individuals. During your consultation, we will discuss your needs, concerns, and goals so we can determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal:
- Have unwanted facial or body hair
- Want to stop using other techniques for hair removal (shaving, waxing, bleaching, depilatory creams)
- Are in good physical health
What Can I Expect from Laser Hair Removal?
On the day of your procedure, you can lie in a private treatment room as areas of your face and body being treated are washed to eliminate dirt, oil, and lotions. During the procedure, a technician will stretch out the skin to provide a direct path between the hair follicle root and the laser. The laser beam will focus on and destroy the hair follicle, which prevents the hair from growing again. Typically, you will need to get 6 or more sessions with 4-6 weeks in between to achieve your optimal results. Your sessions are spaced out in order to allow the treated areas time to heal. This also allows time for follicles in the dormant phase of growth to change to the active growth phase so the laser can be effective. The specialized technology we use at Body Werks Chicago is able to target the hair follicle alone, preserving the skin in the area being treated.
Laser Hair Removal FAQ
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Getting laser hair removal will vary in cost based on the size of the treatment area, in addition to how many sessions are needed to attain optimal results. To understand the benefits of laser hair removal, think of the energy and time you are spending on waxing, shaving, or other temporary methods. By comparison, laser hair removal is typically less expensive overall and can save you time and energy in the long run. We will create a personalized treatment plan with the number of sessions you need and the costs.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Considered an effective treatment, laser hair removal produces lasting results. While you can enjoy the results of the treatment for many years, laser hair removal is considered semi-permanent since some hair follicles may continue growing. Regardless, patients find the majority of the hair is dormant after their treatment plan has concluded, and even if some hairs pop up, it is easier to address. More laser hair removal sessions can also be needed to address new growth and any stragglers.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal can cause some discomfort, but it isn't considered too painful. Patients should feel a small snap when the laser targets and removes each follicle. We can use a numbing ointment to the surface of the skin before your treatment. Patients who have been getting waxed report that laser hair removal feels much less uncomfortable than a normal waxing session.
