Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a procedure to remove unwanted hair on your body. The laser targets the pigment of the hair and works to destroy the hair follicle within the skin. It offers long term results that look and feel great. It is most effective for people with light skin and dark hair.
The Candela GentleMax Pro™ is the gold standard for effective hair removal. It is a dual wavelength laser platform that combines the fastest and most powerful 755nm Alexandrite laser with an equally powerful 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser to deliver an efficient, versatile and safe result with a single beam of light. In addition, its patented Dynamic Cooling DeviceTM uses cooling bursts of liquid cryogen for the most gentle laser hair removal treatment available today!
People may get this treatment on any part of the body, the typical areas are: Face, Underarms, Bikini Area, Back, Chest, Legs, and Arms. Usually permanent hair removal requires 6-8 treatments.

Side effects from a Candela GentleMax treatment are minimal, due to the laser’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) technology, which not only protects the outer layers of your skin with a cooling burst of cryogen, but also leads to increased patient comfort for the duration of the procedure. The Candela GentleMax also has a larger spot size, longer wavelength, and higher energy usage than other lasers, ensuring a faster treatment and less epidermal damage. Patients are free to return to their normal activities immediately. Some might still experience some redness and swelling, but this will go away within a few days.
