Laser hair removal is an extremely effective way to decrease the density of hair growth leaving your skin with a smoother, sleeker appearance. To achieve this, we use the GentleMAX® laser from Candela to target and retard/destroy the hair follicles.
How Laser Hair Reduction Works
Lasers will reduce the amount of hair growth by a process called selective photothermolysis. The laser is effective on follicles in the active growth phase. Since all hair is not in the active growth phase at any one time, repeated treatments are required at 4 to 6 week intervals. Our clinical estheticians would say that five to eight treatments are usually required.
Our clinical estheticians utilize the GentleMAX® lasers by Candela which attack hair follicles with intense pulse light as well as with radio frequency. Most skin types may be treated; however, it is best to avoid sun exposure before and after the treatments. The treatments may take 5 to 60 minutes depending on the body area treated. We may provide a numbing cream to be applied to the skin if needed for a more comfortable treatment.
