How much time does it take to remove hair with a laser?
Everybody has a different body with genetically programmed hair follicles. Some follicles are in what’s known as an active stage while some follicles remain dormant. The only follicles that can be treated with the laser are those in the active state. That is why it is essential that multiple treatments take place as to try and catch as many follicles as possible in their active state. These treatments are usually spaced one to three months apart. The number of treatments is dependent on the individual.
What Lasers does the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery use for its Laser Hair Removal Services?
The Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery uses the eMax Laser System by Syneron. What sets eMax apart from many lasers is its large spot size which makes the treatment faster and more efficient. The eMax’s also uses a combination of Radio Frequency (RF) and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) combined technology. These two technologies work simultaneously to help maximize the removal of an active hair follicle’s continued ability to grow.
Does the eMax Laser actually remove the Hair?
When it comes to the term, “Laser Hair Removal” really means the preventing of a hair follicle’s ability to regrow hair. Unlike waxing which pulls the hair out of the follicle where it will likely grow back, Laser Hair Removal helps prevent the follicle from regrowing hair.

How is the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery different than most when it comes to Laser-Hair Removal?
- At the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery ALL of our hair removal is done by a Registered Nurse. The educational requirement to become a registered nurse is a Nursing Degree from an accredited University / College of Nursing.
- Most of our competitors use Aestheticians. Some of Illinois requirements to become an Aesthetician are; Have a valid Illinois Cosmetology License, be at least 16 years of age, have a minimum 8th grade education and complete at least 750 hours of training. If they have not completed high school or do not have a GED, they must pass an, “Ability to Benefit” test.
- Although there are many good and well qualified aestheticians out there, the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery has chosen to only allow College Educated Registered Nurses to perform all of our laser procedures. We feel that the more medical education one has, the higher the likelihood of recognizing skin health problems.
- At the Women’s Institute all of our lasers are medical grade. Our lasers are setup with medical strength settings for our Registered Nurses to utilize.
