Dark Body Hair is No Match For This Laser Treatment

If you are tired of tedious methods to remove dark, unwanted body hair, you’re not alone. Certain hair removal methods can quickly irritate the skin, only to offer short-term results. State-of-the-art hair removal lasers, such as the Candela GentleMax Pro, provide treatments that are far more efficient, faster, safer, and less painful than traditional lasers or alternative hair removal treatments.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal is the deliberate removal of body hair using laser technology. Hair generally grows all over the human body. While some hair is fine and barely noticeable, other areas can have a thicker and more prominent appearance. Thick hair also tends to be in unwanted places, making laser hair removal the ideal way to eliminate it once-and-for-all.

Laser hair removal works by targeting the hair follicle with laser light. The laser energy damages and goes on to destroy the hair follicle, which stops the hair follicle from being able to produce further hairs. The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the hair follicle, all while unaffecting the healthy, surrounding tissue.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal Using GentleMax Pro

The GentleMax Pro is used for all skin types and shades for laser hair removal, as well as pigmented and vascular lesions. The dual wavelength laser system combines the fastest and most powerful 775 nm Alexandrite laser with the 1064 nm Nd: YAG laser for high-performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficiency, ease-of-use, performance, and patient satisfaction.

The top benefits of GentleMax Pro Laser Hair Removal are:

Treatment Duration

A larger area can be treated with the GentleMax Pro which means faster treatment times and fewer pulses per treatment area. Since larger areas can be treated with each pulse, this means less patient discomfort.

Fewer Sessions

Older laser technology requires patients with darker skin tones or coarse hair to have more treatments to be effective. With the GentleMax Pro, typically 4-6 sessions are needed to complete the hair removal process, and treatments will be spaced six weeks apart.

Perfect For Men

Having laser hair removal for men typically means a longer, more painful process than it usually does for a woman. Men with dark skin and coarse hair almost always have issues with ingrown hairs and razor burn while attempting to self-remove unwanted hair. Using the GentleMax Pro on the face and neck will prevent pesky breakouts while giving men smoother, more desirable skin. Excessive hair on the back, chest or shoulders can all be effectively treated in fewer sessions with minimal discomfort.

How Many Treatments Are Needed For Results?

The laser light targets only hair that is actively growing and in the anagen phase. Because of the way hair grows in stages, multiple treatments are necessary to treat all the hair as it grows. Different hair follicles will be in different hair growth stages at any one time, not growing simultaneously. For this reason, several sessions are required to ensure each anagen phase of each hair follicle is caught during the laser treatments. The number of laser hair removal treatments varies per patient and depends on the area that is being treated, the thickness and color of the hair and the patient’s skin tone.

What To Expect After Treatment

After treatment, the skin may immediately be red, and the hair follicles where the surface has been treated may be raised or bumpy. Very few patients experience any itching, redness or bumps.

Fall In Love With Smooth Skin

The GentleMax Pro is the gold standard for effective hair removal in skin types I-VI, which includes most skin types.
