Laser Hair Removal Q & A
Is laser hair removal worth the investment?
Laser hair removal provides effective, tangible, and long-lasting results.
Many people spend a long time considering laser hair removal before taking the plunge. For most, their biggest regret is not having made the decision earlier. In order to best understand the benefits of Laser Hair Removal, read our blog about the life cycle of your hair. CLICK HERE .
Laser hair removal may seem costly at first, but once you break down the cost of other hair removal options, the value becomes obvious. Razors, shaving cream, wax strips, and depilatory creams aren’t cheap, and those expenses add up over time (not to mention the time you spend getting rid of body hair).
What are the benefits of the GentleMax Pro® system?
At Rapid Laser Med Spa, clients have access to cutting-edge aesthetic technology. For laser hair removal, aestheticians use the Syneron Candela® GentleMax Pro, a powerful system that delivers impressive results.
The system uses dual wavelengths and combines a 755nm Alexandrite laser with a 1064nm Nd:YAG laser. That combination yields the fastest treatment times of any laser hair removal machine currently on the market.
The system can treat all skin types. Previous technology wasn’t beneficial for people with darker skin tones or with lighter hair colors.
What is the laser hair removal process like?
For most men and women, having laser hair removal is a swift process with minimal discomfort. You can schedule an appointment to suit your busy life, and you’ll be in and out quicker than you might imagine.
During your appointments, you change into a treatment wrap to allow the aesthetician access to the treatment area. If you prefer, you can use a numbing cream or gel to lessen sensation in that area before your appointment.
Your aesthetician guides the laser’s wand over your skin. The laser pulses and sends a concentrated beam of light into each hair. The pigment in your hair then absorbs the heat from that light, which damages the follicle.
That slows future hair growth, and any hair that does return is finer than before. Results vary from a few months to multiple years.
During the treatment, you feel the laser target each hair. Some people report a mild sensation of heat; others compare the feeling to being snapped with a rubber band. Subsequent sessions are more comfortable as there are fewer hairs left.
Tattoos are a great way to express yourself and stand apart from the crowd. All too often, however, the appeal of a tattoo fades over time, just like the ink. If you live in the greater Las Vegas area and are thinking about tattoo removal, contact the team at Rapid Laser Med Spa one of the only facilities to use the new Lumenis PiQo4.
The Lumenis PiQ04 Laser
If you’re no longer happy with your tattoo, it’s possible to have it removed. Results vary, so it’s important to choose an aesthetician who’s trained and experienced in tattoo removal techniques.
At Rapid Laser Med Spa, Lumenis® PiQo4 laser accompanies tattoo removal. This powerful tool treats an area of skin that’s more than four times larger than other laser systems, making it possible to complete tattoo removal more quickly.
The PiQo4 laser uses four different wavelengths, which means it can target all colors of ink. That allows your aesthetician to remove any tattoo, no matter the color. In addition to tattoo removal, the PiQo4 laser is also great for improving the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Tattoo Removal Q & A
Why are tattoos “permanent?”
When you get a tattoo, a tiny needle punctures your skin very rapidly, delivering minute deposits of ink into your dermis. The dermis is the second layer of your skin just under your epidermis.
Modern tattoo machines are high-speed and can puncture your skin as many as 3,000 times in just one minute. Each puncture damages your skin, triggering your body to respond by sending white blood cells to the site. Those white blood cells gather any foreign particles and flush them into your bloodstream, eventually reaching your liver and then exiting your body.
In the case of tattoo ink, many of the particles are too large for your white blood cells to handle. They remain in your dermal layer and are visible through your epidermis.
What causes tattoos to fade?
Over time, tattoo ink can become blurred if the original tattoo was placed too deeply in your skin. Or if you gain or lose a significant amount of weight, your tattoos can become distorted or faded.
Tattoos can also fade due to improper aftercare. It’s important to keep a new tattoo site clean and covered with antibacterial ointment and to avoid picking at scabbed or flaking skin during the healing process.
Excessive sun exposure can also fade tattoo ink over time, as can exposure to strong chemical cleaning products, gasoline, or other harsh chemicals.
Few things are better than a professional, high-quality facial. At Rapid Laser Med Spa, a team of skilled aestheticians has access to some of the best products currently on the market. Having a facial at the Las Vegas location will leave you relaxed and refreshed with soft, glowing skin.
Why is it important to get regular facials?
A professional facial is more than just a chance to relax and recharge; there are also notable benefits to your skin. Finding the time to schedule regular facials can be a challenge, but you should consider it part of your overall wellness routine.
One benefit of a professional facial is the deep cleaning it provides. Removing the layer of dead cells, bacteria, and other contaminants can reveal healthy, glowing skin.
For those with clogged pores, extraction is another marked benefit of a professional facial. Everyone knows it’s essential to leave pore extraction to the pros to avoid broken capillaries and other skin damage, but your aesthetician can also extract far more efficiently than you could on your own.
Masks and peels offer a chance to receive targeted care. Whether you’re looking for a brighter complexion, reduced outbreaks, or deep moisturization, masks and peels can deliver.
Stress relief is another significant benefit of a professional facial. Taking an hour or two to relax and let someone else care for your skin can give you the boost you need to get through the rest of your week.
During your facial, your aesthetician helps you decide which products and treatments are right for your skin.
If you suffer from acne or have scarring, a VI PeelⓇ can provide excellent results. This potent peel kills bacteria, clears out dead skin cells, and soothes inflammation and redness.
SkinMedicaⓇ, GlyMedⓇ, and SkinCeuticalsⓇ offer numerous products and facial types, some of which only professionals use, and some that are for home use. Using high-quality skin care products between facial appointments is a great way to extend the benefits.
As a woman passes through the phases of her life, childbirth, hormonal fluctuations, and the typical aging process all take a toll. Changes in genitalia may be a normal part of life, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept them. At Rapid Laser Med Spa, vaginal rejuvenation offers a path toward increased lubrication, enhanced pleasure, greater elasticity, and even improvements in urinary incontinence. Using the Fem Touch Acupulse™ developed by Lumenis®, the leading company for aesthetic medical devices, in collaboration with leading gynecologists, we can now offer a simple treatment for vaginal health conditions. Watch the video below to see the FemTouch laser in action! We’re quite sure you have questions about this game-changing service
What causes vaginal changes?
The most common cause of vaginal changes is childbirth. The process of delivering a baby places a great deal of stress on your vaginal tissues, which can lead to a loss of elasticity known as vaginal laxity.
Vaginal laxity can have a negative impact on your sex life, making intercourse less enjoyable. For some women, these changes can also affect their confidence, leading to decreased sex drive.
Vaginal changes can also accompany menopause. That’s especially true concerning vaginal dryness and urinary incontinence. When these changes cause problems, vaginal rejuvenation can help you feel more like yourself and restore normal vaginal function.
What are the treatment options for vaginal laxity?
Surgery is a useful option, but it’s inadvisable for women planning to add to their family. And many women want to avoid the risks that accompany any surgical procedure.
Kegel exercises and pelvic floor training can help, but these approaches don’t yield drastic improvements. Laser therapy offers a great compromise between self-care and surgery.
FemTouch™ is a system built on fractional CO2 laser technology. It delivers carefully-controlled laser energy to vaginal tissue, restoring normal, healthy function.
The laser creates very small micro-injuries to the tissue that lines your vagina. Your body responds by regenerating tissue to replace the damaged cells, increasing collagen in the treatment area. That thickens the tissue, leading to improved sexual pleasure. The process also restores optimal vaginal moisture.
Is vaginal rejuvenation painful?
Vaginal rejuvenation appointments are relatively fast and painless. During the procedure, a special FemTouch probe is inserted into your vagina, providing access to the vaginal wall.
Most women require three sessions spaced out over three months. The entire treatment time is just a few minutes. Once those sessions are complete, most women opt to return for yearly touch-ups to make the most of their results.
Women who’ve had the procedure report a sensation of pressure, similar to having a pelvic exam, and there’s no pain associated with FemTouch treatments.
Stretch marks are very common, but they make many people feel self-conscious. Fortunately, there are effective treatments that can drastically improve the appearance of stretch marks. Rapid Laser Med Spa offers powerful treatments for stretch marks including the ResurFX treatment using the Lumenis M22- helping men and women from the greater Las Vegas area feel great about their skin again.
Lumenis ResurFX Laser
One of the most exciting treatment options for stretch marks is the Lumenis® ResurFX™. This powerful laser technology creates amazing results with minimal recovery time.
The Lumenis ResurFX can help
Fine lines and wrinkles
Loose or sagging skin
Because ResurFX uses fractional laser technology, it only affects a portion of the skin. That allows your aesthetician to target the areas that need treatment, yet leave the surrounding tissues and cells unaffected.
ResurFX is a non-ablative laser, which means the treatment stimulates your skin to produce more collagen without causing damage to your cells. Increased collagen plumps the skin, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Stretch Marks Q & A
What are stretch marks?
Stretch marks occur when your body grows faster than your skin can regenerate to accommodate the growth. When your skin stretches, long, thin lines appear. Stretch marks are often a dark red or purple color that eventually fades to white.
These are some common conditions that cause stretch marks:
Growth spurts during puberty
Sudden weight gain
Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder
Can microdermabrasion help with stretch marks?
Microdermabrasion is a treatment using a carefully-controlled stream of tiny crystals to blast away the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing softer, smoother skin. Research indicates that microdermabrasion can be an efficient way to treat newly developed stretch marks before they turn white.
Microdermabrasion is most effective when combined with professional skin peels.
What are some other treatment options for stretch marks?
Plastic surgery is one way to address stretch marks. This approach involves the surgical removal of affected skin.
Surgery can be a good fit for men and women who’ve lost a substantial amount of weight and have excess skin with lots of stretch marks. However, there are risks associated with any surgical procedure, and many people prefer to take a less invasive approach to improving their skin.
