"Dr.Ricks is a great doctor he’s compassionate and understanding he also takes time to listen to what I have to say instead of trying to rush me out which is very important. He also takes time to call to check on me after the many surgeries that I have had and that says a lot. Dr. Ricks goes over and beyond for his patients. A doctor that goes that extra mile and still has time to run a full time business says a lot. THANK YOU DR.RICKS."- A.B. / Google / Jan 20, 2022

"I have had the best treatments from Ciao Bella. I absolutely love Trish and Kayla. First treatment was the Alma Hybrid and have had the most amazing results. My face looks amazing after only 4 weeks!"- M.M. / Google / Jul 15, 2022
"On my birthday, I looked in the mirror and thought to myself, look how smooth my forehead looks now! All thanks to Trish and Kayla, the fabulous “mother daughter duo” at Ciao Bella med spa. I knew after my very first consultation with Trish that I was in caring and capable hands. I explained to her that I wanted to soften the appearance of my laugh lines, crows feet and forehead wrinkles. I also explained to her that my skin is extremely sensitive and hormonal. Trish recommended the CleatLift and we decided together to take a very conservative approach with my skin.I had sessions with both Trish and Kayla and they were both so sweet. After a few sessions I noticed that my skin was more radiant and glowing. My jawline is tighter and my melasma is less noticeable. Since I was so happy with the results of the ClearLift, I decided to go in for Botox injections. I’ve had Botox in the past but I was still anxious. Again Trish was so patient with me. She took her time and explained the location and amount of each injection. She wanted to take a conservative approach, giving me less toxin at first resulting in a more natural look. Plus I didn’t feel a thing! It was such a pleasant experience and I am thrilled with the results. I’m looking forward to my follow up visit next week. Thank you"- N.L. / Google / Jul 03, 2022
Laser Hair Removal FAQ
How much does laser hair removal cost?
Laser hair removal can vary in cost based on the size and number of areas being treated, as well as how many sessions are needed to achieve a smooth result. To put the cost of laser hair removal into perspective, consider the energy and time you currently spend on waxing, shaving, or other methods. This is why laser hair removal is usually less expensive overall and will save you time and energy in the long run. Our team will develop a personalized treatment plan that includes a price quote.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
While you can enjoy the benefits of the procedure for a long time, laser hair removal is considered semi-permanent since some hair follicles may not be affected by the laser. Regardless, patients find that most of their hair follicles are dormant once their treatments are finished, and even if stray hairs are still growing, it's easier to deal with. More laser sessions can also be scheduled to take care of any stragglers or new growth.
Why do I need multiple laser hair removal sessions?
Hair growth happens in cycles. While some hair follicles are growing, other follicles are dormant. Because each follicle grows in various stages, multiple sessions are suggested to target each follicle when it's growing. Getting your sessions over a few weeks helps you achieve the smoothest, most effective result.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Your laser hair removal session can cause minor discomfort, but it is not considered painful. To help you stay comfortable, we can apply a local anesthetic on your skin before the start of your treatment. Most patients say that laser hair removal is less uncomfortable than a waxing session.
