Q: Why should I trust Elase over another company?
A: In today’s market, there are a lot of options out there for laser hair removal, skin care, weight loss and BOTOX. But unfortunately, not all providers are the same. When you trust your appearance, your time and your money to somebody, you should be absolutely positive that they are going to provide you a service that you will be thrilled with. Elase has a proven record of providing the highest quality services, in a beautiful environment at a fair price. We aren’t a fly-by-night Groupon company. We don’t jack up our prices and then barter with you in your consultation. We don’t buy cheap equipment. We don’t rely on a sales rep to train our technicians. Everything we do, we do at the highest level of quality possible. That is really why for the last 10 years, Elase has been Utah’s #1 provider of laser hair removal, skin care, weight loss and BOTOX. That is why Elase is one of the Top 25 BOTOX accounts in the United States, the #1 Skin Medica account in Utah, and the #1 Medicis account in Utah. And that is why for the last 5 years, we have been voted Utah’s “Best of State”. Just come in for a consultation and you’ll understand right away why Elase is different.

Q: How does Elase ensure my satisfaction?
A: Our Nurse Practitioners, Physicians Assistants, Nurses and Master Estheticians are extensively trained at the prestigious National Institute of Medical Aesthetics. All of our laser technicians have a minimum of 300 hours of hands-on laser training prior to treating our clients. Elase also conducts quarterly clinical trainings to ensure that our employees are staying on top of new advances in the industry. For over a decade we have been providing our clients with an exceptional experience every time they come to visit us.
Q: What kind of equipment does Elase use?
A: Elase Spas uses laser hair removal equipment from both Cynosure and Syneron/Candela, the two largest laser manufacturers in the world. In fact, Elase is a “national” account with these companies because we purchase so many lasers in order to always ensure that our clients are being treated with the newest technologies. Elase uses ND:YAG, Alexandrite and Multi-Plex technologies to ensure optimal results. Our propriety treatment protocols ensure the highest amount of hair reduction that a client can achieve. Our processes have been developed over 10 years of fine-tuning and evaluating results to ensure you get the very best treatment possible. Because of our proprietary treatment protocols and our advanced laser technology, we are able to treat all skin colors.
Q: Will I really never have to shave again?
A: The average person can expect 70-90% permanent reduction from laser hair removal treatments. This varies from person to person and between body areas. At your initial consultation we will give you an accurate idea of what you can expect.
Q: How many treatments do I need?
A: The average number of treatments needed to achieve 70-90% permanent hair removal is about 8-12. This number varies from person to person and among body parts. Our membership programs are structured specifically so that you can receive all of the treatments you need to reach your full result, plus any touch-ups necessary to catch those stray hairs.
Q: Why do I have to wait so long between treatments?
A: Hair follicles transition through active and dormant stages and only about 30-50% of your hair is actively growing at any given time. With each treatment, we will cover the entire skin surface, but only those follicles that are "active" will be impacted. When a follicle is dormant, the laser light cannot be absorbed, and the follicle is left undamaged. We customize your treatment plan to ensure that we are matching your hair growth cycles and ensuring the best results possible for you.
Q: Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?
A: We can treat all skin colors and hair types. Laser hair removal is less effective on clients with red, blonde or grey hair, so we recommend that you come in for a consultation so that we can give you an accurate idea of what results you can expect.
Q: What areas can be treated?
We can treat any body area for both men and women. The most popular areas for women include upper lip, underarms, bikini line, and legs. The most popular areas for men include the back of the neck, back, chest, and abdomen.
Q: How long does each treatment take?
A: Each body area can be completed in 20 minutes or less. Your appointment time will depend on how many areas we are treating that day. Because there is no down time with laser hair removal, you can easily get your treatment on your lunch break and return to work immediately. We take care to make sure that we give you a thorough treatment, and that you get in and out of our clinics as efficiently as possible so you can get back to your busy schedule.
Q: Is laser hair removal safe?
A: The simple answer is “Yes”. Laser hair removal is the #1 non-invasive cosmetic procedure performed each year, with the lowest risk of adverse reaction. When performed by trained practitioners, side effects from
laser hair removal are very uncommon.
