LASER HAIR REMOVAL – CANDELA GENTLEMAX PRO
Are you tired of wasting time and money shaving your unwanted body hair? Make the switch from razor to laser with the Candela GentleMax Pro. This treatment is available now at Renewed Medical Health and Beauty in Tucson. Our providers recommend this advanced laser hair removal system because it’s safe, gentle, and effective for all skin types. Plus, it takes far less time to complete one treatment compared to many other laser hair removal systems, thanks to the GentleMax’s large treatment spot size.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal works by emitting a concentrated beam of light at the treatment area. The laser targets the melanin, or pigment, in the hair. Then, the light energy converts to heat energy. This targets the hair follicles, damaging them so that hair will no longer grow.
Since these lasers target the melanin in hair, there is some concern of ineffectiveness when treating people with dark skin tones. However, the Candela GentleMax Pro eliminates these concerns, allowing our providers to safely and effectively treat patients with any skin color, tone, or type.
In addition to the excellent safety profile of the GentleMax Pro, this advanced dual wavelength platform is far gentler on the skin than many other systems. The patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ incorporates bursts of cooling and refreshing liquid cryogen. The result is an effective hair removal treatment without the discomfort of similar technologies.
During your consultation at Renewed Medical Health and Beauty, your provider will estimate how many treatment sessions you’ll need for optimum results. Although the treated areas will display less hair after just one treatment session, you can achieve best results by undergoing multiple treatments. This is because laser hair removal technology works by targeting hair that is in its active growth phase. Here’s a look at your hair’s growth stages:
- Anagen: The active growth stage.
- Catagen: The transitional stage.
- Telogen: The shedding stage.
In anagen, the hair is its darkest and thickest. Laser hair removal is most effective when targeting hair in this stage. However, not all of your hair is in the same stage at the same time. That’s why you’ll need additional treatments, spaced about six weeks apart. These additional treatments target the hair that was previously in the catagen or telogen stages during the initial treatment.
Before receiving the treatment, one of our aesthetic providers will evaluate your medical history to make sure laser hair removal is an appropriate option for you. Then, you will receive a topical anesthetic to reduce any discomfort that may occur. Safety goggles will protect your eyes from the laser beam. The provider will operate the GentleMax Pro over the treatment area. Laser hair removal may be performed on virtually any area, including the following:
- Upper lip
Afterward, the affected hair will fall out for several days to weeks. This might initially look like hair growth. Remember to follow your aftercare instructions carefully, including protecting yourself from sun exposure.
