Laser hair removal is a safe, convenient, and popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. A trained aesthetician uses a pulsating beam of light to get rid of your unwanted hair. The laser passes through to your hair follicles, and the intense heat damages the follicle. This deterioration hinders future hair growth.
GentleMax Pro® Laser Hair Removal
The GentleMax Pro® laser has been designed to work on any patient–even with darker skin tones, and can remove hundreds of hair follicles at the same time. The GentleMax Pro® sends a high-energy pulse that gives off a gentle beam of light directly to the hair follicle destroying the actual follicle without affecting the surrounding skin. The dynamic cooling device cools the surface of the skin immediately prior to the pulse of the laser, allowing patients to remain comfortable during treatments. Superficial damaged blood vessels and broken capillaries are treated similarly with a quick switch of settings.
Laser Hair Removal FAQs
What Precautions Should be Taken Before and After Treatment?
It is important to avoid plucking, electrolysis or hair waxing for six weeks prior to treatment. Also, any hair should be completely removed by shaving and your skin should be thoroughly cleaned and dried, removing any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or skin tanning products before laser treatment. The intended treatment area should not be exposed to sunlight for a minimum of 14 days prior to treatment.
Who Performs Laser Hair Removal?
All laser hair removal treatments are performed by one of Bello Corpo Medical Spa’s well-trained medical professionals. Each practitioner is extensively trained before performing any treatments.
Are Laser Hair Removal Treatments Painful?
Candela’s Laser Hair Removal treatments use a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™), which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of cryogen in adjustable durations—milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD helps ensure that the treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.
