Laser Hair Removal in Reno, NV

ABOUT LASER HAIR REMOVAL estimates that the average woman spends about 600 hours shaving over the course of 20 years. Get back that time with laser hair reduction at Renovation, Dr. Virden’s Medical Spa in Reno, Nevada. The Sciton JOULE ClearScan ALX is perfect for elimination of unwanted hair on the legs, arms, bikini, upper lip, or anywhere hair growth is a problem with a quick, virtually painless procedure. The ClearScan laser selectively targets your hair follicles and heats them with laser energy. Unlike other treatments, the laser beam treats many hairs at once, making treatment of large areas practical for faster, more effective treatments. As Medical Director of Renovation, board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Charles P. Virden choose the ClearScan system to help his patients permanently reduce their hair follicles so they can spend their time on something more fun.


Laser hair reduction can help patients who:

  • Want to stop using temporary hair removal methods, like shaving
  • Have a medical condition that makes it difficult to use other hair removal methods
  • Want smoother skin with less hair
  • Want to reduce hair on areas of the face and body, including the legs, arms, bikini area, and upper lip


“When I first walked in for my consultation I was greeted by the ladies at the counter. (Although they made me feel uncomfortable for how young I am walking in, they were still nice) there were a few older women in the waiting room, again making my early twenties self a little uncomfortable. I went in for laser hair removal! Alex helped me and made me feel at ease, I knew there was no one else I trusted to do the job! I made the appointment for the following Tuesday and again the treatment went awesome! She made me feel so comfortable, being in such awkward positions. It wasn’t painless but I wouldn’t say it hurt either. I’m excited to see how the process goes over the next six months!”

The ClearScan utilizes a unique computer-guided scanning system that automates the treatment, ensuring your skin is rapidly and evenly treated. The computer places the beam in an optimum pattern for your skin to experience a safe, effective, and gentle treatment. The length of the treatment will depend on the amount of hair and the size of the area(s) being treated. For optimal results, patients should have several laser hair reduction treatments since dormant hair follicles cannot be treated. By waiting a few weeks between treatments, dormant hair follicles will have time to return to the growth cycle and can then be treated.


Patients can leave immediately after their laser hair removal session and return to their normal activities. The technician will discuss when the patient should schedule their next appointment. Laser hair removal works best on light skin with dark hairs, so a consultation is important to make sure the patient is an eligible candidate for the procedure. Patients may notice mild swelling or redness in the treated area for 1 – 3 days after their session.


Average Cost $60 – $3,060
