Two of the biggest reasons why many people seek nonsurgical solutions to their cosmetic worries are because there’s little to no downtime with these procedures and they can see results much more quickly.

But while you can absolutely achieve amazing results with a full-on laser med spa makeover just in time for a big event, you’ll still need to do a little planning to make sure you get the timing just right.

Laser Hair Removal

Thinking about getting laser hair removal (LHR) for silky, smooth skin on your wedding day? Keep in mind that this treatment is going to take a little more advanced planning than some of the other med spa treatments you might also be considering before your big day. That’s because laser hair removal needs to be done in a series of several sessions, each one spaced several weeks apart.

You can expect to see gradual results after each LHR treatment, but if you want the full effect in time for a special event, start your first treatment well in advance. The exact number of sessions you’ll need will depend on a variety of factors, including the size of the area(s) you’d like to treat.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Most people require 6 to 9 laser hair removal sessions for maximum results.

Like laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal virtually always requires multiple treatment sessions to obtain full results. So if you want to have that neck tattoo gone before a big day, it’ll require a bit of planning.

Even with the PicoWay® laser, which is considered to be the gold-standard for laser tattoo removal, you’ll want to plan for several sessions spaced 8 to 12 weeks apart. Of course, the size, saturation and placement of your tattoo can affect the number of laser treatments you’ll need, so the best way to iron out your timeline is to schedule a consultation with an experienced laser technician.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

During your laser skin resurfacing treatment, a specialized laser removes the outer layer of your skin to reveal the smooth, bright layer underneath, as well as stimulate cell renewal. This process can take 2 to 3 weeks to complete, and your skin may be red, flaky and tender during this time. But the good news is most people only need one laser resurfacing treatment to see optimal results.

Laser skin resurfacing can be an excellent med spa treatment choice if you’re bothered by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, sun damaged skin or stretch marks.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

“Laser skin rejuvenation” and “laser skin resurfacing” are often used interchangeably, but there is an important difference. Laser skin resurfacing is a type of laser skin rejuvenation, which refers to a broad range of laser treatments aimed at improving the tone and texture of your skin.

Laser skin rejuvenation treatments such as the GentleMax® Pro and PicoWay® Resolve can achieve amazing results without the downtime needed after laser resurfacing.

Laser Feminine Rejuvenation

Changes that happen to a woman’s body over time can leave many women feeling discouraged, frustrated and self-conscious. Fortunately, you don’t have to necessarily opt into a surgical procedure to help address these concerns.

Laser feminine rejuvenation usually takes about 15 minutes, requires no downtime and can help to restore vaginal tightness and tone, resolve vaginal dryness and improve intimate relationships.
