Laser Hair Removal at RevIVe Med Spa

Are you annoyed, embarrassed, or merely inconvenienced by the appearance of dark, coarse hair on your body? It may be time to consider painless, yet effective hair removal with RevIVe Med Spa’s Lumenis LightSheer DUET!

In the past, remedies for removing unwanted hair included plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis, or chemical depilatories, most of which were painful, or could even cause scarring. Some were messy, and all were only temporary. Laser hair removal is a more effective and permanent solution!


ALL HAIR REMOVAL LASERS are not created equal!! With laser hair removal in Friendswood, our brand new, state-of-the-art high-speed Lumenis LightSheer DUET utilizes vacuum-assist laser technology to remove unwanted hair with greater speed and comfort than any other method or laser! Our LightSheer produces a larger beam of highly-concentrated light than the average hair removal laser; the energy emitted is well-absorbed by pigment located in the hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged, which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow. With the large treatment spot size, the process treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster (and virtually completely painless!) when compared to traditional laser hair removal alternatives.


  • Disclose your medical history, medication usage, and history of skin disorders to the doctor during the consultation.
  • Prior to laser hair removal in Friendswood avoid sun exposure for a few days before the treatment. If you must go outside, wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF30 or more.
  • Avoid sunless skin creams or tanning products.
  • Avoid plucking, waxing, tweezing, and other treatments that disturb the hair follicles at least four weeks before the treatment.
  • Avoid nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and other blood-thinning medications.
  • Shave or trim the hair in the treatment areas the day before the procedure. This will minimize the risk of surface skin damage while leaving the hair shaft intact.


We ask that clients arrive with the area to be treated thoroughly shaved the day of the procedure—but no fear, if you forgot to shave, we will provide you with a dry razor to prepare the area! We ask that you remove your clothing from the area to be treated, and will provide you with a comfortable robe for privacy during your laser hair removal in Friendswood.

The area to be treated is cleaned, and the procedure is ready to begin! You will feel a very slight suction over the treatment area, and a quick pulse of the slightest warmth. The handpiece is then repositioned and repulsed. The treatment moves quickly and painlessly! An entire back or legs can now be treated in just 15 to 20 minutes!

Post-Procedure/ Downtime

You should expect mild redness and swelling around the treatment areas for a few hours after the procedure. However, ice packs can be used to reduce the discomfort. You should avoid tanning beds and direct sun exposure between the treatment sessions. And if you step outside, you must wear a broad-spectrum SPF30 sunscreen.

What to Expect

Laser hair removal will require multiple treatments. This is because the laser works best when hairs are in an early growth stage (referred to as anagen), and all the hairs are not in this phase at the same time. Therefore, with each successive treatment of laser hair removal in Friendswood, you will see slower and thinner hair regrowth, until hair regrowth ceases. We sell very affordable packages of six treatments for this reason!

Treatment frequency

The number of treatments and the interval between treatments depend on the speed of your hair regrowth and the treatment area. You might need a laser hair removal session every 4 to 8 weeks for the upper lips. And you might need a session after every 12 to 16 weeks for regions with slow hair regrowth, such as the back. Your laser hair removal provider will recommend the ideal treatment frequency for your specific needs and concerns.
