Smooth, hair-free skin for the long term.

At Radiance Aesthetics Medical Spa, our highly trained laser specialists will address your unwanted hair with the groundbreaking Venus Concept laser hair removal system, which leaves your skin free of unwanted hair and silky smooth. Using the most advanced treatment device available, we can help you remove excess hair that has sprouted where you don’t want it.

How laser hair removal works

In a few short minutes, those unwanted hair follicles are rendered inactive with the Venus Versa laser, with minimal discomfort. We target your unwanted hair follicles with concentrated pulses of light energy that feel like a mild flick on your skin. Full unwanted hair removal requires a series of several treatments, with results appearing after your first treatment. As you continue with your follow-up treatments, fewer and fewer unwanted hairs return.

It’s critical to complete the entire series of treatments for the optimal outcome. As we know that not all patients have the same needs, we offer a FREE consultation to customize a laser hair removal treatment package specifically for you.

How does the Venus Versa laser system work?

Whether on your face or body, the Venus Versa laser system can target unwanted hair. The concentrated light energy is focused on the hair follicle, rendering it unable to produce hair. The hairs on any area of the face or body are in one of four growth phases. The system attacks the hairs that are in the “growth phase.” You will need to undergo a series of treatments to ensure all hair follicles, as they enter the growth phase, are treated and unable to grow hair.
