At-home hair removal methods are time-consuming and a nuisance. At our Ethos MedSpa locations in Chesterfield and Clayton, MO, we offer treatments with powerful laser hair removal devices so that you no longer have to spend time or waste money on temporary solutions. Once you undergo the quick and virtually painless recommended number of treatments, you can enjoy smooth, hair-free, low-maintenance skin long-term.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is an in-office, professional treatment that harnesses the power of light energy to target and heat hair follicles in the treatment area to damage them, so they can no longer grow hair. We offer two different devices that can effectively eliminate unwanted hair from virtually anywhere on the body and help patients achieve long-lasting results, Lutronic CLARITYII™ and Venus Versa™ IPL.
What Are the Treatment Benefits?
There are many benefits to beginning a laser hair removal treatment plan to reach your aesthetic goals. Once you undergo the treatment, you’ll no longer have to shave, wax, or use depilatory creams to remove unwanted hair from one or more body areas.
Investing in one of our professional hair removal treatments will save you time and money long term. You can schedule treatments at a time that’s convenient for you, quickly undergo the treatment process, and get back to your day without any social downtime. Other treatment benefits include the following:
- Treatments are quick and virtually painless.
- Results are long-lasting
- The devices can also rejuvenate the skin in the treatment area
- Only a few treatments are necessary for optimal results

Investing in Lifetime Packages
At Ethos MedSpa, we offer lifetime packages for purchase that can simplify your treatment process. These packages allow you to target a specific area of the body and invest in the ability to schedule any additional treatments for that same body area as often as you need in the future. The Lifetime Package covers the cost of any and all additional treatments needed for as long as you need them, so long as they treat the same body area.
Each Lifetime Package is sold separately per treatment area. If you’re interested in investing in one of our Lifetime Packages, we can give you more details about how they work at your initial consultation.
The Treatment Process
The laser hair removal treatment process begins with an initial consultation. We will meet with you to determine if this treatment is right for you and then design your unique treatment plan.
Preparing for Your Treatment
After we confirm your treatment eligibility, we will provide you with some ways to prepare for your treatment. Patients must avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks before the session so that there is enough contrast between the skin and hair color for the device to be most effective. You also need to avoid any type of hair removal method that removes the hair from the root for six weeks before your treatment.
Four weeks before your treatment, you must avoid using any depilatory creams. We do ask the patients to shave the planned treatment area for 24 to 48 hours before their appointment. Contact wearers must remove them before undergoing treatment.
During your treatment, we will outline the details of your treatment plan. Depending on which location you visit per your preference and our recommendations, you’ll undergo treatment with the Venus Versa™ IPL device or the Lutronic CLARITYII™. Both devices promote patient comfort with built-in cooling systems and can take as little as 15 minutes from start to finish.
Treatment times may be longer if we treat multiple areas during a single session. Most patients need three to six treatments, with six weeks between each when treating the face and four to eight weeks between each when treating the body. We will give you more details about what your unique treatment plan will look like at your initial consultation.
After your treatment is over, you won’t have to worry about social downtime, but you will need to avoid anything that increases body temperature, including excessive exercise, sauna use, and even hot showers for 24 hours after your appointment. We will provide you with topical product recommendations to use after your treatment.
Once you complete the recommended number of treatments, you can enjoy smoother, hair-free long-term. Patients with a high contrast between their skin and hair color typically experience permanent results after treatments. Some patients may require yearly maintenance treatments for the best results.
