Laser Hair Removal

At Aloha Med Spa, we offer the latest in laser hair removal technology with our state-of-the-art Splendor X laser. This device is considered the gold standard for painless hair removal and is safe for all skin tones. The large spot size of the Splendor X allows us to perform fast treatments even for large areas, making the process more efficient for our clients.

How It Works

Our Splendor X laser also features BlendX technology, which allows for the bilateral laser emission of Nd: YAG (1064nm) and Alexandrite (755nm) wavelengths. By using both wavelengths simultaneously, we can safely treat all skin tones from I-VI without any risk of burning or hypopigmentation.

To achieve the best results, we recommend a series of six treatments spaced 8-10 weeks apart, followed by an annual touch-up thereafter. With the Splendor X laser, you can achieve smooth, hair-free skin without any pain or discomfort. Book an appointment with us today and experience the ultimate in laser hair removal technology!

Common Questions

Have a question? Here you’ll find detailed and friendly answers to all the questions that our customers commonly ask us.

  • You must shave the hair of the body part to be treated. If you cannot shave, then advise the technician and our staff prior to treatment in order schedule extra time in the appointment and we can do it for you for a fee of $50 per area per occurrence. 
  • Do not wax, pluck or use depilatories during your series of laser hair reduction 
  • Avoid sun exposure for 1 to 2 weeks prior to treatment and use SPF 30 daily to ensure coverage against UVB and UVA rays. 
  • Do not use self tanning products for 1 to 2 weeks prior to and/or post-treatment. 
  • Discontinue use of Tretinoin type products (Renova, Tretinoin, Retin A, Retin A Micro, Tri-Luma, Solage, etc.) or Hydroquinone at least 2 or 3 days prior to treatment. 
  • Many medications that are sun sensitive will also make your more sensitive to the laser. Please disclose any medications that you may be taking. 
  • If you have a history of cold sores, begin prophylactic treatment with Valtrex or similar no later than the day prior to your laser hair treatment. 
  • Notify the center if you develop a cold sore, acne, open lesions in the area being treated, or experience any type of illness prior to your treatment. 
  • Longevity of Botox and fillers done any time within 6 months prior to face treatment may be affected. Botox done within 2 weeks prior to treatment is not recommended. 
  • REMEMBER – Laser hair reduction is never 100%. Industry-standard is 75 to 90% reduction in the hairs. Not all hairs will be destroyed. Hormones can cause hair to grow back. 
  • You may experience small red bumps around the hair follicle. This is normal and expected. Do not pick, rub or scratch these until they have cleared. Your skin overall may be sensitive for several days following your laser hair removal treatment. 

  • If your skin scabs or crusts, or your experience a burn, do not pick, rub or scratch these areas. Doing so can result in infection, permanent pigment changes in your skin or even scarring. Gently cleanse the area and apply hydrocortisone cream several times a day for one week. If the area is open, also apply a layer of antibiotic ointment over the hydrocortisone cream. Please contact us immediately if you experience any burns. 

  • Do not sunbathe or use a tanning bed for at least 2 weeks following your treatment. If you need to be out in the sun, wear an SPF 30 minimum. 

  • Avoid swimming, hot tubs and saunas for several days following your treatment. 

  • It can take several weeks for the hair in the treated area to “fall out” (push up and out of thefollicle). This time frame is normal. 

  • Do not expect your hair to “not grow back” after a single session. Laser hair removal is a process. 

  • Subsequent treatment sessions should be 6 to 8 weeks if done on the face and 8 to 12 weeks if done on the body. 

  • Although rare, infection in the treated area is possible. Signs of infection may include redness and tenderness in the infected area and fever. Should you develop an infection, antibiotics may be necessary. Please contact us should you have any concerns.
