LASER HAIR REDUCTION
The Candela GentleMax laser creates a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deeply into the skin tissue, where it delivers a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat. Candela’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) technology protects the upper layers of your skin with a cooling burst of cryogen. Together, the long-pulse laser and DCD or air cooling offer optimal laser hair removal treatment with minimal side effects.
Laser Hair Removal And You!
Are you considering laser hair removal? If so, you may have questions. Is the procedure safe? What are the risks? You can always call and schedule a free consultation we will answer all your questions! We are here to help you make the most educated decision on removing unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal gets to the “root” of the unwanted hair problem – literally. During the procedure, a licensed and trained professional focuses a concentrated beam of high-energy light on areas of unwanted hair. This high beam will reduce and remove the unwanted hair!
Lasers used for hair removal are finely-tuned machines that deliver energy to a precise area on the skin where you have excess hair. The beam of light from the laser is absorbed by pigmented regions, such as the hair follicles where hair originates. The energy from the light beam or laser is converted to heat and the heat damages the hair follicle to the point that no further hair can grow. The hair that previously grew from the follicle subsequently falls off a few days after the treatment.
What about safety? Laser hair removal is safe when carried out by a licensed professional using an FDA-approved laser.
Lasers used for laser hair removal deliver energy and heat that may result in mild redness, discoloration, or swelling to the treated area, but this usually resolves within a few days. The laser also has a cooling system that helps lower the temperature and soothe your skin as the treatment takes place. When receiving laser hair removal treatments, you should try your best to stay out of the sun. You should always use sunscreen if you plan on being in the sun!
Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?
With laser hair removal, pain and discomfort are minimal and can usually be relieved by applying a cold compress to the area afterward. It’s uncommon to experience more severe side effects after hair removals such as pain or scarring. Most people go back to their regular activities right after the treatment.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal works best for people who have dark hair and light skin, although even people with darker skin tones can enjoy the benefits of having unwanted hair removed via laser treatment. For darker skin tones, the technician can lower the energy to the laser to safely and effectively remove unwanted hair, whether it’s on your arms, legs, bikini area, underarms, or face.
How many treatments do I need?
Everyone is different. The average person will need between six and eight sessions spaced out at 4 to 8-week intervals for best results.
When you consider the alternative – repeated plucking, shaving, or waxing unwanted hair and the skin irritation they cause – it’s easy to appreciate the benefits of laser hair removal, a safe and permanent solution to unwanted hair. If you’re ready to put away your tweezers and razors, laser hair removal could be for you.
