Electrolysis is recognized as a more permanent hair removal method, and this procedure still remains popular in the spa. Electrolysis can remove ingrown hairs as well as visible hair, and can be done in alomost any area fo the body. There are three different techniques available that will destroy the hair follicle. The treatments vary depending on area and the individual’s particular needs, but the sessions usually last between fifteen minutes and an hour and are repeated every ten to fourteen days  for the best results. Within one to four years, the hair removal can become permanent (some exclusions apply), with no more shaving, ever! The cost of electrolysis varies by treatment time, with a discounted price on longer treatment sessions. Your esthetician can give you an idea of the cost and number of treatments when you visit us for a personal consultation.

Laser hair removal uses light to heat the hair follicle. Because it uses certain wavelengths of light, the devices are able to heat the dark melanin in the follicle without heating the surrounding skin, helping minimize pain and discomfort during the treatment. Some clients prefer laser hair removal because it causes less discomfort than electrolysis, but laser hair removal does tend to work better on darker hair, so it may not be suitable for everyone. Depending on the area and the individual’s particular needs, the laser hair removal sessions may take from twenty minutes to an hour or longer. Treatments are usually every four to six weeks, and the results of laser hair removal can last longer each time, leaving some people virtually hair-free. Uptown Spa’s laser hair removal prices vary by area and discounted packages are available for multiple treatment sessions. Your esthetician can give you a better idea of the cost and number of treatments when you visit us for a consultation.


Uptown Spa’s clients also find threading to be an effective hair removal method. Most often used on smaller areas such as the upper lip, chin, or for shaping eyebrows. Threading uses a twisted thread to remove multiple hairs by the root. Threaded hairs may not regrow fully for two to six weeks, although this varies from person to person, and the hair may begin to grow finer and sparser after multiple treatments. The cost of threading varies depending on the area treated, and your expert esthetician can give you more information.
