Laser Hair Removal in Chicago


laser hair removal ChicagoAt Reset MedSpa, our laser hair removal hand piece has a large rectangular window emitting broad spectrum light which is applied to the surface of the skin. The energy travels harmlessly through the skin until it reaches the hair follicle. The dark-colored melanin in the hair absorbs the light and rises slowly in temperature, destroying the hair-producing cells surrounding the follicle. Because the heat is not sustained, however, no damage occurs outside the follicle area.  We use the revolutionary Harmony Laser.

We offer our 2 ways of applying this treatment:

  • IN-Motion™ Technology – virtually pain-free hair removal without the use of anesthesia or numbing gels. This breakthrough, revolutionary technology has been described as one of the most comfortable hair removal options available.
  • Standard Hair Removal Application- this may require numbing gel if the patients being treated is more sensitive. This treatment may feel like a rubber band snap. Patients who have heavier hair follicles may benefit more from this type of application. What to expect? Most clients see results after the first few sessions. Effective laser hair removal requires a minimum 4-6 treatments to see complete hair removal.

Photofacial/ Veins
The Reset Photofacial treatment uses a quick and effective procedure for many signs of aging, including brown spots and broken capillaries of the face and body. Using relatively low-energy and short-pulse broadband light, imperfections such as erythema of rosacea, age/sun spots and other discolored signs of photo damage can be gently heated and eliminated, then replaced by newer, younger looking skin. Patients prefer Photofacial (also known as AFT treatments/IPL) because each treatment has little to no down time. In fact, laser skin treatments for wrinkles and other signs of aging can be done during a lunch hour and no one will notice any sign of treatment, just a gradual improvement in the skin’s appearance. We recommend a series to receive maximum results due to pigmentation sits in different layers of the skin.  What to expect? Photofacial treatments involve a “peppering effect” this is most prominent on the first treatment and shows signs with-in the first 48hrs. This effect may last up to 5 days on some patients. Although it is visible, it may be covered with make-up. We recommend that the patient exfoliate on night 4 of the treatment to help the exfoliation of the skins’ process.

Ablative Laser Treatments
Our Ablative treatments are designed for more of a major change in the skin. Dealing with acne scarring, un-evenness, hyper-pigmentation, and stretch marks, in the skin are just some of the areas that these types of treatments can help improve above and below the skin. Texture, tone, and evening of the skin will be seen in overall results.  What to expect? Ablative services may require down time. Ask your skin therapist for more information.

We offer 3 types of fractional ablative services

Our Q-switch, fractional laser is done at the dermis level to produce collagen and improved elasticity of the skin. We love this treatment for “on the go” patients. What to expect?  With no reddening or flaking, this treatment can be done on a lunch hour. All the benefits of a fractional resurfacing treatment but with little to no down-time.

The I-Pixel, also known as the original fractional laser, is not to be taken lightly with its high performance results. Great for overall skin resurfacing, acne scaring, stretch marks, pigmentation balancing, and wrinkle reduction, this treatment is sure to please. What to expect?  Although, there is down time with the I-pixel, results are seen after the first treatment.

New to the family of fractional laser, this ablative treatment produces tightening, builds collagen, enhances elasticity, reduces wrinkles and removes scars.  The PIXEL RFX uses InfraRed technology to recreate collagen as the treatment is being applied and as well as the skin is healing. Creating an ablative thermal channel at the sight of treatment area — a micro-injury — without disturbing the surrounding tissue. Those micro-injured areas start the process of healing and the untreated area acts as a reservoir for rapid restoration. As collagen remodels, skin tightens and texture improves. *for heavier acne scaring and hyper/hypo pigmentation a minimum of 6 treatments is required to see full results for all ablative treatments. What to expect?  Ablative services may require down time. Please speak to the esthetician for instructions.
