I am so grateful that I found Rhonda and her office. She helped me remove unwanted hair on my face and body. She is such a caring person, and she listens to what you have to say. She has great hours that work with everyone’s schedule and her prices are very reasonable.

I had such a bad experience in another office in Reston, Virginia, where the person used the wrong laser and burned my face. They turned my face into a beast. I was so upset because I paid this office so much money, but in the end they couldn’t do anything to help me.

When I got an appointment with Rhonda she was so nice, she listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions. She did not rush me and she felt so bad that I had to go through this. Now I don’t have any hair on my face and body. Thank you so much for such a great service! I wish there were more honest people like you in this world!!

Rhonda is ah-mazing. She is so incredibly sweet and always very friendly. I honestly love seeing her every time that I come in. She is extremely knowledgeable (I believe she also comes from a medical background) and she has always answered any and all questions that I have. Her prices are very fair and competitive for the area. I did a ton of research about lasering and was astounded by some of the prices that DC salons try to charge. Rhonda is kind and honest and will also tell you up front whether or not you're a good candidate for her laser. I definitely recommend checking her out, even if only for a consultation. It's totally free and only takes a few minutes.

Amazing. Affordable. And Rhonda is about as lovely as they come. You will feel right at home.

Rhonda has been amazing. I started coming to her because I had embarrassing facial hair that was causing skin issues and I was extremely self-conscious about it. I had gone through laser treatments at other places before, and it only kept coming back even thicker. I had my consultation with Rhonda and she explained the color of the hairs matter with laser and that I would benefit from electrolysis. After my first electrolysis session, I was so happy I cried. I saw immediate results and I am now nearly hair free on my face. I only go for some stray hairs (that are hanging on for dear life) about once a month. I am overjoyed with the results and Rhonda has been fabulous.

This is the best place to go for laser! I have been everywhere – to major cities in Philadelphia, Boston and DC, and this place beats them all. Not to mention, way way cheaper! The owner, who is very personable and knowledgeable, has many years of experience and is extremely committed to getting results for you. I had fantastic results.

I am so mad that I wasted so many years and money with other more fancy places that were snobby, very expensive, and didn‘t really care that I had gotten zero results from them.

The facility is very nice – clean, professional and peaceful. Somehow hair removal turns into a zen experience! Haha. You will not be disappointed if you go here.

I have been going to Rhonda for Years. I highly recommend her to anyone who is considering getting any kind of electrolysis or laser hair removal! Her prices are competitive and her location is convenient. She is wonderful to talk to and is great at keeping you distracted during the treatment.


Rhonda is a pro! She believes in doing the job right, and will bend over backwards to make sure you're happy with your results. She doesn't try a hard-sell, but instead talks to you frankly and honestly about what you want and what it'll take to get there. Her prices are competitive and her location is convenient. Best of all, she's a blast to talk to- she helps me to forget the discomfort that sometimes goes along with hair removal!

I really have no idea why there are no reviews for Rhonda and her shop on the edge of Arlington. As far as I am concerned---this place is a hidden gem for anyone with a car in the area who is willing to make the trek out past Columbia Pike.

Rhonda books up far in advance--meaning if you want to come here for laser or electrolysis treatment...you better plan to make your reservations at least 2 weeks in advance. Also, it is just her there operating the laser (which she apparently used to instruct aestheticians on) so this is really a one woman show.

The place itself is tiny and a wee bit outdated as far as decor is concerned---but it is clean and well maintained. Rhonda also was very easy to talk to and good about keeping you distracted as you feel the little rubber band like laser snapping against your skin. She was also very knowledgeable about the hair removal process--and mentioned that she is also licensed to do electrolysis for someone with lighter hairs that are unresponsive to their lasers.

However by far the best part is the price: she charges by the time spent and her rates are ridiculously reasonable. Well worth it in my opinion.

I have been doing electrolyses with Rhonda for about 3 sessions and she is amazing! First of all the essential consultation goes as it should be without marketing things, she really says the truth about your hair condition, possible results. Secondly, during the process she leads a nice chat, so that you relax and feel very comfortable. If you not sure whether to go or not, just visit the place for consultation and you will see, that it is a nice place and Rhonda is a very nice woman.

This was my first time to see Rhonda.

She did an excellent job. She is quick and efficient. She is professional and knows her job.

I will definitely use Rhonda again.

Thanks a million.

Rhonda is fantastic! This was my first time with electrolysis and laser hair removal and I was extremely pleasantly surprised. Rhonda immediately puts you right at ease, is very upfront about the risks, possibilities that the procedure may not have dramatic results (I have lighter colored hair) and is just wonderful to talk to. She has also been VERY flexible with my hectic schedule and is very easy to get a hold of to discuss appointment times.

I highly recommend this place to anyone who is considering getting any kind of electrolysis or laser hair removal!

Rhonda is amazing. She is truly an expert. This was the first time that I had electrolysis and in just a few sessions she took care of the unwanted hair on my face. I highly recommend her. She will work with you on getting appointments and even if she books a half hour if she only uses 15 mins then she only charges the 15 mins. I like what another reviewer said this is truly a hidden gem and Rhonda is amazing.

I take back my original review. After calling back to discuss the situation, I was able to get an appointment that night. Once we got there Rhonda was extremely professional and compassionate.
