Remove unwanted hair with Candela Laser Hair Removal
Permanent Laser Hair Removal
For Women & Men of Fair Skin Tones
Lasers have been used for many years for a variety of medical cosmetic procedures including treatment of facial leg veins, age spots and rejuvenating the skin on the face. The Candela GentleLASE System is a revolutionary long-pulse high energy alexandrite laser that emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The skin is further protected during the Dynamic Cooling device where cryogen is sprayed onto the skin cooling the upper layers and providing patients with increased comfort.
How Does The Candela GentleLASE System Work?
Using protective eye wear for both the practitioner and the patient, the doctor uses a small handpiece that touches the skin to deliver the laser light. A light spray of coolant onto the skin will be felt just before each laser pulse.
How will I know if Candela will affect my skin?
A test area will be done prior to the entire treatment. Your full treatment may be done on the same day or up to two weeks later, depending on the skin reaction.
Will Candela GenlteLASE hurt?
Most patients experience little discomfort at the treatment site because of the dynamic cooling device. The degree of discomfort varies with each person depending on her/his threshold. Topical anesthesia may be requested. Be sure to discuss this with your doctor.
How many treatments will I need?
Hair grows in cycles. The number of treatments required depends upon your skin color, hair color, and coarseness of your hair. Everyone will require at least two to three treatments due to the process only being effective during the early hair growth cycle.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure can take as little as ten minutes or up to an hour, depending on the area being treated. The treated area may also become pink or red within 30 minutes of treatment; this may last from a few hours to several days and is relieved with the application of ice or cooling gels.
