Before your Laser Hair Removal appointment, a consultation is required for us to be able to assess your skin, provide thorough information on treatment protocol, and determine the best treatment plan for you.
During your treatment, eye protection will be provided. After we cleanse the skin, a small hand-piece will be used to deliver each laser light pulse. To ensure optimal comfort, our Candela GentleMax Pro® releases a cooling spray on the treatment area before the pulse of laser light is emitted to target hair follicles. A slight stinging sensation is normal as the therapeutic heat is being absorbed by the skin tissue.
Although the Candela GentleMax Pro® is rated #1 in customer comfort, some guests might experience a mild pinching or tingling sensation. To reduce probability of discomfort, a cooling spray is released from the device prior to each laser flash.
The number of 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. Because the laser light targets only hair follicles that are actively growing, multiple treatments are required to target all the hair as it grows. We recommend 6-8 sessions for desired results, with each treatment booked 4-6 weeks apart.
The treatment can take 10 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the existing skin condition, treated area, and desired laser hair removal goals.
Unlike many Laser Hair removal machines on the market, our Candela GentleMax Pro® is safe and effective on all skin tones. We choose the settings based on a variety of factors, including each individual’s skin and hair colour.
Once the hair follicle is damaged, it cannot grow new hair. However, there will always be a few hair follicles that manage to partially escape the laser during each treatment. Some of these follicles may only be stunned temporarily and will need to be retreated. Hormonal changes or certain medications may also cause hair regrowth. After completion of your treatment, some individuals may need a “reminder” treatment session once a year. We treat our patients on a case-by-case basis and will be by your side every step of the way on your hair removal journey.
Some redness and swelling after treatment can be expected, and can last between a few hours to a few days depending on the treated area and whether the patient follows post-treatment protocol.
Typically, we can expect 80% hair loss in 3-5 sessions, though it’s important to note that every area will react differently. Some can be challenging and require more time, while others may respond easily requiring fewer sessions.
