What is it?
We use the Syneron Candela GentleMax laser for hair removal. This is the Gold Standard in laser hair removal. It has 2 lasers in the one machine. Gentle Hair Removal systems use either Alexandrite or Nd:YAG lasers, depending on your skin type, so you get the best results for your skin.
What to expect?
A handpiece delivers a laser pulse into the targeted areas on your skin, and a controlled amount of therapeutic heat safely and effectively damages the hair follicles. Treatments take anywhere from a few minutes to about an hour, depending on the area being treated.
Do Gentle Hair Removal treatments hurt?
Gentle systems feature a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD), which minimizes discomfort by releasing a quick burst of liquid cryogen before and after each laser pulse. This cryogen quickly evaporates, cooling the outer layers of the skin. Some patients report a sensation similar to being snapped with a rubber band, but that generally resolves quickly with DCD cooling. A topical anesthetic may be used prior to treatment.
Is Gentle Hair Removal safe for darker skin tones?
There’s a safe, effective and comfortable Gentle treatment option for every skin tone. Consult with Dr Sullivan about the best treatment for your individual needs.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
You’ll need a few treatments to get optimal results. That’s because hair grows in three stages:
The hairs on your body are not always at the same stage, so you’ll need to undergo a few treatments, an average of six weeks apart, to catch all of them in the growth stage.
Treatments take an average of 22 minutes
80% of patients report permanent hair loss after 4-6 treatments
