Laser Hair Removal in Lake Forest

Smoother, Sexier, Painlessly With Laser Hair Removal in Lake Forest

Aesthetic Treatments / March 7, 2024

The hottest looks on the North Shore promote natural looks from skilled professionals. But to feel your best from the inside out, there’s only one practice focused on promoting health and beauty. Perlis Medspa and Wellness Center is proud to start many patients on their path to total beauty with laser hair removal near Lake Forest.

Smoother Feel

Our specialists recommend laser hair removal for a long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs. This goes further than your typical waxing or that bottle of Nair. Our state-of-the-art Motus AX laser delivers fast, uniform, and painless results. Perlis Medspa and Wellness Center is proud to offer this advanced treatment.

The Sexier You

In addition to reducing hair, our laser treatments can reduce the frequency and severity of acne breakouts. We also recommend laser hair removal in Lake Forest to prevent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and improve the look and feel of your skin. Lasers that actually help your skin might sound like science fiction, but we trust the facts and science behind one of the aesthetic industry’s most advanced lasers.

The Science of Smooth

The Motus AX laser is the most permanent hair reduction option offered at Perlis Medspa and Wellness Center. This device utilizes a cutting-edge Alexandrite laser for hair removal. This special laser system delivers simple, continuous movements over a small area. While typical lasers only work on darker hair, the unique sapphire cooling tip on the Moveo handpiece is engineered to make the laser more efficient and useful across all skin types.

Additions to Laser Hair Removal

While laser hair removal is a great standard treatment, Perlis Medspa and Wellness Center specializes in exceeding expectations. Our skilled providers provide support throughout your treatment plan to meet your goals. Here are our common additions to laser hair removal near Lake Forest .

Wellness Inside

BHRT is another way to improve the longevity and quality of your looks naturally. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy regulates and promotes hormone health. When everything’s working right, healthy skin, faster healing, and improved overall well-being promote your natural beauty to bring out the best in you.

Beauty Outside

HydraFacial is one of the coolest ways to serve the hottest looks. Combining the power of 3 treatments, this is the nourishing, refreshing treatment you’ve been looking for! Microdermabrasion cleans and exfoliates deep, then we use booster serum to empower your natural glow and keep your skin healthy down to the cellular level. 

Micropeels are a great way to get to the root of most skin concerns. By combining dermaplaning, a chemical peel, and cryotherapy we clinically exfoliate your skin for the freshest looks possible. These are typically done a few days before a big event, or every 4 to 6 weeks depending on how fresh you’d like your skin to feel regularly. 

Is this really forever?

The goal of laser hair removal is defined as the long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs regrowing when measured at 6, 9, and 12 months after the completion of the full treatment protocol. This applies to all skin types, even tanned skin.

Whether it’s before you say “I do” or just a treat for you, our laser hair removal near Lake Forest  gives professional, lasting results. These results take some upkeep to maintain. So, we recommend regular regimens 4 to 6 weeks apart to maintain the best results.

Making It Last

We love to go 6 weeks without shaving, and we’re sure you will too. Whether it’s managing that budding mustache or getting red carpet ready, our specialists know exactly how to maintain your results. Treatment regimens include initial treatments and 6 regular treatments every 4 to 6 weeks. Many of our patients schedule this for a long lunch or alongside other treatments to maintain that classic North Shore glow. 

The Perlis Process

So, what can you expect from that long lunch? When you schedule your consultation, you’re taking the first step in achieving total beauty. Here’s what to expect as you talk to our specialists about laser hair removal near Lake Forest . 

The Talk

Every treatment at Perlis Wellness and Aesthetics Center starts with a talk. This means you can ask every question, and get comfortable with your custom treatment plan. We use our in-house laboratory to run bloodwork and scan for precise information like bone density. With the data we need, we begin to build your treatment plan around your exact skin condition and biology.

The Questions

These are a few of the common questions we answer in every one on one consultation. Feel free to ask us anything else. We strive to get to the heart of your concerns while finding ways to bring out your true natural beauty.

Why don’t typical lasers work on lighter hair?

Unlike laser treatments of the past, our state of the art lasers go beyond the standard 5 or 6 on the scale. This is due to the unique design of our Motus AX system. We are one of very few medspas with access and experience with this advanced laser hair removal near Lake Forest.

How long do results last after the treatment regimen is complete?

That is completely up to you! We need your approval before scheduling follow-ups. We typically recommend treatments in 3 stages spread 4-6 weeks apart. This reduces the full cycle of hair. Over the initial recommended course of 6 months, hair will regrow slower, and less frequent treatments may be required.

Where on the body can laser hair removal be done?

Other than around your eyes and lips, there is almost no limit to the versatility of our laser hair removal. A few typical areas are the legs, underarms, forearms, knuckles, and toes. 

What does bone density and bloodwork have to do with laser hair removal?

Everything about your body works in harmony. So if you’re not nourishing your body properly, or something isn’t working right, your treatment plan will be affected as well. You may just want to get rid of the hair, but our specialists can treat conditions that go beyond just hair. 


We use DEXA scans for all of our patients to understand your muscle and bone mass as well as the amount of bad fat around your organs. This allows every patient to get the custom-tailored treatment their body truly needs.

What does the growth cycle mean? What are the different stages?

Follicles grow, die, and grow again in stages. Dormancy of the hair shaft alternates with periods of regression and growth. This is all thanks to apoptotic signals that control every aspect of the life and death of hair. This cycle is divided into three phases. Anagen is in the growth stage. Catagen is a transitionary period. Telogen is the dormancy of growth in between.

Our specific laser hair removal works in the anagen phase by targeting the follicle at its weakest. This ends the entire growth cycle for those specific hair follicles until the next phase begins. This is why we recommend scheduling follow-ups after your first treatment.

Why ultrasound gel?

Ultrasound gel has unique properties that allow our laser to work efficiently by providing cooling while the laser is in use. This laser uses very different wavelengths than ultrasound at your OB-GYN. We use ultrasound gel to get results painlessly and efficiently.

How to care for skin after laser hair removal?

First things first, keep your cool. No more sunbathing for a while! If you do want to show some skin, make sure there is plenty of shade to give your skin the time it needs to heal fully.

You’ll need to shave before the treatment, but we recommend avoiding any skin that’s swollen, red or painful.

We’ll recommend some of the moisturizers and other products we trust for irritation-free healing, and healthy skin. Proper care after every treatment compounds the results over time to get the silkiest, sexy skin of your life. 

The Treatment

On the day of your laser hair removal, we’ll answer any last-minute questions and help you get comfortable. It’s important to note that we target hair at different stages in the growth cycle, so we’ll need to schedule 3 sessions to get the best results.

During each procedure, you’ll be given protective eyewear and the laser equipment settings will be adjusted to address your concerns and comfort level. We’ll also apply an ultrasound gel on the treatment area and get to work. Throughout the laser treatment, Motus AZ delivers pulses of light energy. The first treatment may have some discomfort, so your technician will check in with you periodically. Additionally, your first treatment will likely be longer. So, plan for anywhere between 30 to 60 minutes for your visit.

Every session is relaxing and pain-free with our experts in laser hair removal. With virtually no downtime, you’re able to go back to work—but we’ll vouch for you if you take a long lunch!

The Results

Monitor your skin’s texture after and between your treatments, and feel free to ask us for tips on maintenance. We offer products to give you the formulas we trust at home too. Before you leave, we’ll schedule your regular follow-ups as desired and plan any additions for your total health and beauty journey.
