Laser Hair Removal with the Candela GentleMax Pro
The Candela GentleMax Pro is the gold standard for laser hair removal treatments.

Laser hair removal can be safely and effectively performed on large and small areas of the body, including more sensitive areas. Laser hair removal is commonly performed on areas like the:

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The hair growth cycle occurs in phases. There is the period of active new hair growth, followed by a transitional phase where active growth stops, and then a resting phase where the hair is fully formed. When the cycle repeats, the new hair growth eventually pushes out the no longer actively growing hairs.
Laser hair removal works by targeting hairs that are currently in the phase of active growth. The GentleMax Pro targets the hair follicles using a small handpiece that delivers bursts of targeted energy. The heat damages the hair follicle and prevents further hair growth. The GentleMax Pro is able to precisely target the follicles without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Because the hairs in one area of the body all grow at different rates and can be in different phases of the hair growth cycle, multiple treatments are required in order to effectively and evenly treat a targeted area for consistent results. Most patients will need around four or more laser hair removal treatments in order to attain their desired results. Treatment sessions are scheduled several weeks apart.
What to Expect After Your Laser Hair Removal
There is no lengthy recovery period following laser hair removal treatments. There may be some redness and swelling around the treated areas, but these issues will subside a few hours after your treatment. A cold compress can be applied to the area to help reduce swelling. The treated area may feel sensitive or tender. It is best to avoid exposing the treated areas to direct sunlight while the area recovers.
