Laser hair removal at our Vero Beach spa provides long-term hair reduction for individuals who are tired of shaving, waxing, or tweezing. Those uncomfortable hair removal methods are a tedious, time-consuming, and sometimes expensive part of many people’s grooming routine–and the results are temporary. Laser hair reduction is permanent and many guests from Melbourne, Port St. Lucie, and Sebastian find the treatments at White Orchid Spa are comfortable and even enjoyable.
We use advanced laser hair removal technology that can reduce hair growth by up to 80% for effortlessly smooth skin. Our experienced aesthetic nurse practitioners combine the expertise of laser technicians with the attentive care our guests expect at White Orchid Spa.
What It Treats
Laser hair removal is a versatile treatment that reduces unwanted hair in both large and small areas. It’s an effective option if you want to reduce facial or body hair that makes you feel self-conscious or makes it problematic to wear certain clothes. Both men and women can benefit from laser hair removal. The most common areas treated include:
Face, including upper lip
Our Nurse Practitioners
Our highly respected nurse practitioners combine the training and experience of accomplished medical professionals with the warm, personalized service you expect at a luxury med spa.
The best candidates for laser hair removal have dark hair and light skin because darker hair absorbs more of the laser light. A number of factors influence the effectiveness of laser hair reduction treatments, including:
Length and coarseness of the hair
Any medications being taken
How It Works
The laser platform used at our spa can be adjusted based on your skin color and the color, thickness, and location of the hair being targeted. Laser energy delivered to the treatment area is absorbed by pigment in the hair follicles. Active hair follicles are heated up to the point where they can no longer produce hair. Because hair growth occurs in cycles, not all the hair in an area can be treated at the same time.
What To Expect
Before coming in for your laser hair removal treatment, we ask that you shave the treatment area. Before beginning the procedure, the nurse practitioner adjusts the laser’s settings and, in some cases, will provide eye protection. A topical cooling gel applied to the skin will help you remain comfortable during the procedure.
After performing a test to ensure the settings are optimal, the nurse completes the procedure. The length of the treatment depends on the size of the treatment area, but most procedures take between 15 and 30 minutes. Some of our guests compare the sensation of a laser treatment to a rubber band snapping the skin.

What Should I Do After Laser Hair Removal?
We provide ice packs or anti-inflammatory creams to ease any post-treatment discomfort. It’s especially important to use sun protection after laser hair removal. You’ll be advised about this and other aftercare considerations by your practitioner.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
You’ll notice smoother skin immediately after the procedure, but after about 2 weeks, you may notice increased hair growth as the dormant follicles enter the active phase.
Will I Need Multiple Treatments?
We recommend a series of approximately 5 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart to catch as many hairs in their active growth phase as possible. You may need additional maintenance treatments after a year or 2, although hair that grows back is usually lighter and finer than before it was treated.
Our extensive menu of med spa treatments addresses a range of skin care and body contouring concerns. It’s not always easy, though, to know which procedure—or procedures—is the best option. The interactive treatment planner removes much of the guesswork. Select the condition you’re interested in treating, and you’ll see a list of possible treatment options with links to learn more.
Our providers tailor laser hair removal specifically for each guest and a consultation enables them to listen to your concerns and create a customized treatment plan.
