Treatment overview

Regular Hair removal routines not only can be costly but also painful, tedious, and time-consuming.

With a series of non-surgical treatments from RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, our experts can ensure that men and women alike will no longer be frustrated by stubble, ingrown hairs, or irritated skin.

Our series of treatments targets hair that is in a specific growth cycle, using light to target the melanin in the hair follicle’s growth centers. That light then painlessly turns into heat, destroying the hair follicles at their source.



Laser hair removal can help treat all of the following areas, including:






Bikini Area









Hands & Feet

How it Works

The Consultation

At RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, each initial patient consultation is different.

Depending on your needs, desired treatments, areas of concern, and simply who you are as a patient, we will schedule you with an actual treatment provider to discuss your goals, budget, and more. During this appointment, we will go through before & after photos, your medical history, and any questions you might have. Only then can we make a recommendation for which procedures or treatments may be right for you and why. We will be sure to educate you on how the treatments work, including what to expect during and afterward.

A typical consultation lasts about 40 minutes and is free of charge for all aesthetic treatments, including laser hair removal. At the end of your consultation, you will leave our office in Vernon Hills with a thorough, personalized treatment plan. And when you’re ready, we’ll schedule your first treatment session.

Your Laser Hair Removal Treatments

As with any procedure at RL Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, we will begin your laser hair removal treatment by ensuring your total comfort in a clean, comfortable, and private treatment room.

  • Your treatment will include multiple sessions over the course of a few weeks. Depending on your individual needs, our providers will use either the GentleLase laser hair removal system or the Sciton BARE. Both of these methods are painless and will remove the area of hair entirely over the course of treatment.





The Recovery

Laser hair removal has no downtime associated with treatment, and patients are free to resume normal social activities after each session.

With that being said, some redness and irritation in the treatment area is common, and some physicians recommend avoiding sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanners until your treatments are completed.

Jackie did my laser hair removal today and she was just awesome! I was kinda nervous going in but she made me feel very comfortable, she’s the best! It was fast, and not too painful, I say that carefully bc there were a few tender spots! Very professional atmosphere, I was impressed and will recommend Ritacca, and Jackie!

If I could give Jen Greco at Ritacca more stars I would in a heartbeat! I have been going to Ritacca since 2012- what started out to be for laser hair removal to now my everyday maintenance of a healthy skin care regimen. Jen has demonstrated professionalism, dedication, and her incredible expertise for many years. From micro needling/chem peels to laser treatments to facials to home regimen recommendations- she is the best in the field! I don’t know what I would do without her!

Laser Hair Removal

I’ve had two tattoo removal sessions as well as a laser hair removal and I must say the staff is amazing- super friendly and knowledgeable.

Both procedures have produced great results so far with no discomfort. I look forward to my future visits and will let you know what my end result is.

I’ll say that just after two laser treatment on my tattoo it’s nearly gone in some areas in significantly faded in others.

It’s definitely worth the drive to know you’re in good hands that can deliver great results.
