With the Candela GentleLASE and GentleYAG Laser Hair Removal Systems, we treat all skin types quickly, comfortably, and effectively.
The laser creates a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deep into the skin tissue where it delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat. The GentleLASE patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) technology protects the upper layers of your skin with a cooling burst of cryogen. Together, the long-pulse laser and DCD cooling offer optimal treatment with minimal side effects.
Most people require at least 6-8 treatments, as the process is only effective when the hair follicle is in its active growth phase. Laser hair removal works best on dark hair. Treatment of light colored hair does not yield any significant results. The risks of laser hair removal are minimal, however, you should avoid sun exposure before and after treatment and you should apply sunblock (SPF 30+) when going outdoors.
