The GentleMax Pro Plus permanently and effectively removes unwanted hair from the body leaving the skin soft, supple, and smooth.
How Does GentleMax Pro Plus Work For Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal works by destroying the root of the hair follicle. During treatment, using GentleMax Pro Plus flashes of light are distributed over the skin and absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. The energy from the laser heats up and damages the hair follicle, successfully stunting the cells that stimulate regrowth.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe and Effective?
Yes, the procedure is safe and effective when performed by skilled professionals and with the proper equipment. GentleMax Pro Plus emits light and heat energy that specifically targets the hair follicle. It eliminates the hair while the surrounding skin remains unharmed.
Does laser hair removal work for everyone?
By combining the robust 755nm Alexandrite and 1064nm Nd:YAG lasers, GentleMax Pro Plus offers clients unmatched flexibility. Both dynamic and highly efficient, GentleMax Pro Plus’ dual wavelengths allow for the laser hair removal treatment to be safe and effective on ALL skin types.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
Patients stay comfortable during treatments and achieve ultimate outcomes with dependable epidermal protection. Candela GentleMax Pro Plus incorporates the Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) cooling system to protect patients’ skin no matter how fast the laser is fired.
How Can I Prepare for My Laser Hair Removal Session with LMC?
An important note before each laser hair removal treatment is to arrive clean-shaven 24-48 hours on the targeted area(s) before your appointment. Avoid the use of any lotions, deodorant, makeup, or cosmetics on the skin to allow for better results. Please follow our laser hair removal pre & post care guide to ensure the best results!
What Is The Aftercare Like for Laser Hair Removal Sessions?
After your treatment, you may experience redness or swelling on the area treated that typically goes away after a few hours, depending on the reaction. Within several hours or days after the treatment, these side effects will vanish. After each session:
- Avoid sun exposure on the treatment area for 2 weeks following treatment – this is especially important in the Summer when the UV index is super high and powerful
- Every day and multiple times throughout the day apply a generous amount of sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to the treated area(s)
- Avoid sauna use, hot baths, hot showers and strenuous exercise until the redness is gone
- Do not scratch, tweeze, wax, or pluck the area. Shaving only, please!
Ensure you follow our laser hair removal pre & post care guide for all of the specific details!
How Many Laser Hair Treatments Will I Require?
The number of treatments you will require depends on the area to be treated, the coarseness of the hair and of course the pigment. Legs, bikini, under-arms could take 6 treatments. Other more hormonal areas could require 8 treatments. Laser hair removal interval sessions are usually 4-6 weeks apart to effectively reduce hair growth. Along your journey here at LMC, your laser technician will keep you updated on how many more sessions you will need and your progress.
