Laser Hair Removal Solutions

The Revive Laser Hair Removal Difference

Revive's premium laser hair removal solutions are for patients of all skin types and tones, from light to dark, including tanned patients. The longer wavelength and innovative cooling design of our lasers allow for effective and safe results.

What areas can be treated?

Revive laser systems can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and back. They can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini area.

What do the treatments feel like?

Revive laser systems are specially designed to cool and soothe as they glide along your skin. When the pulse light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Providers can also choose between 2 proprietary treatment modes, either Speed or Comfort. With either setting patients experience an effective and comfortable treatment with cooling from a constant contact crystal.

How many treatments will I need?

Most areas require 5-6 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors - hair thickness, the area treated, and your hair's growth cycle. Interestingly, not all hairs are actively growing at the same time and actually go through three distinct phases; growth, regression, and resting. Laser hair removal laser treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.

What happens after the treatment?

Immediately following your treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be a regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments, you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.

How long should one wait between treatments?

After receiving laser hair removal on your underarms or face, we recommend waiting 4-6 weeks between treatments. After undergoing laser hair removal on any other area of the body, we recommend waiting 6-8 weeks between treatments. 

For Women & Men Of All Skin Types And Tones

Revive offers Cutera HR and BARE HR lasers. Both significantly improve patient comfort by offering continuous cooling before, during, and after each laser pulse.


Hair removal lasers have been used since the late 90s and have been approved for "permanent hair removal" by the FDA. Permanent hair removal is defined as the long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing after a treatment regimen. It does not mean 100% removal of all hairs for the rest of your lifetime, and you should not have this expectation OR be told by any company that this is possible. All clients need follow-up maintenance treatments after an initial series. Maintenance treatments will address newly developed follicles.

  • The Dos and Don'ts BEFORE and AFTER Laser Hair Removal Treatments

    #1 rule: One MUST HAVE brown or black hair color to be a candidate for laser hair removal treatments. Blonde, Red, White, or Gray hair cannot be treated.
    #2 rule: Please SHAVE prior to your appointment!!!

    + SHAVE treatment area 24-48 hours prior to your appointment. The laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle. Long hair will confuse the laser on what pigment to target and will increase your risk for burns.
    + Protect your skin every day with SPF and keep the treated area out of the sun 3 days prior to and 3 days after your treatment.
    + Take ibuprofen and an antihistamine as needed post-treatment.
    + Use cool compress post-treatment as needed.

    - Don’t wax prior to your laser treatment. Hair follicles must be present for laser the treatment to work
    - Do not pluck, pull, or wax during your series—this will stimulate new hair growth. Hide your tweezers!!
    - Do not use self-tanner or tanning beds at least 2 weeks prior to your laser treatment.
    - No heat/exercise for 48-72 hours post-treatment.
    - Stop your Tretinoin 2 weeks prior to treatment on the face.

  • Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?

    Following the treatment, we recommend you avoid the gym, sauna, steam room, or hot tub for 48-72 hours. After 48-72 hours you can return to your normal activities! Some redness may occur following treatment. Sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun. In addition, your physician may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regimen especially formulated for your skin type.

  • Is laser removal really worth it?

    While traditional methods of hair removal are still the go-to methods for many, these methods are all temporary and must be repeated on a frequent basis... forever! Laser hair removal is a quick and efficient solution to rid yourself of unwanted hair.

  • What are possible side effects?

    Although patients experience few side effects, the most commonly noticed are slight reddening and local swelling of the skin, similar to a sunburn. These effects typically fade after a few hours.

  • How do laser hair removal treatments compare with other hair removal methods?

    Shaving, waxing, and depilatory creams are all temporary methods that must be repeated on a frequent basis. Treatment with laser systems provides permanent hair reduction for lasting results.

  • How does it compare with electrolysis?

    Electrolysis is a tedious, invasive, and painful process that involves inserting a needle into each individual hair follicle and delivering an electrical charge to them one at a time. Electrolysis often requires years of treatments at regular intervals. By delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time, the laser systems offered at Revive effectively treat an area in just seconds that would take over an hour with electrolysis.

  • How long should one wait between treatments?

    After receiving laser hair removal on your underarms or face, we recommend waiting 4-6 weeks between treatments. After undergoing laser hair removal on any other area of the body, we recommend waiting 6-8 weeks between treatments.

What Our Clients Say

Completely in love with my Dysport results I received from Kisha! She is very knowledgeable, professional, sweet, and personable!

Revive was initially recommended to me by friends, I've been a client now for a few different treatments. I received Dysport from Katie and Kisha and they are both amazing! On my last visit, I had a consultation for lip injections. At my consultation, Kisha provided me with Restylane Kysse lip injections. Kisha is a true artist! I am completely obsessed with my lips! Kisha was so informative, knowledgeable, and sweet!

– Tanya

I love the privacy of the relaxation area so we aren't awkwardly sitting together in the open lobby, especially when I was nervous before my first appointment! Oh, and your treatment rooms are awesome. I've been to specialists' offices that were tiny and cramped in comparison.

When I step into your spa it feels like a mini vacation!

I have tried a few places since moving to the Quad Cities from Chicago and finally found this gem. They did an awesome job with my Dysport injections and really listened to what I was asking them to do. They far surpassed my expectations and the place is clean as a freaking whistle! My mother was in town visiting from Atlanta and they did hers as well. She was also beyond pleased with the results and facility overall. Highly recommended, and I'll definitely be back for more soon. Thank you, Revive!

Wow! - is all I have to say! Big city level of service. Any treatment I've had here so far was top notch and every staff member I've worked with was super knowledgeable, professional and made sure I was comfortable.

I drove two hours from my home, past Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, to Revive for toxin and lip filler. I have done my research on injectables for a while now and was impressed with Revive's website. Professional and appealing!

– Sandy

I had a 60-minute sports massage with Angela. She was amazing! Very knowledgeable and super friendly. I can't say enough good things.

– Marsha

My first trip to Revive was today and it was everything I had hoped it to be. I had a 90-minute massage. It was absolutely amazing and I am definitely rebooking another with her. So much relief with TMJ and muscle tension. After the massage, I had my skin consultation with Kisha and continued to be amazed by the level of professionalism and knowledge, as well as the friendly and genuine service. I have booked again next week for my first Dysport session. All my friends and coworkers have asked for the outcome of my spa visit and it's definitely a 2 THUMBS UP! Thank you for a great experience from the check-in staff all the way to the end of my sessions. The facility is beautiful as well!
