Hair Removal

Unwanted hair can be treated safely and permanently with the Gold Standard GentleMax Pro®- for All skin types. In-office face and body hair removal are done by trained professionals and can have more long-lasting or permanent effects than at-home methods.

During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to heat up the hair and significantly impede the follicle’s ability to re-grow. Laser energy is delivered through a small handpiece operated by your practitioner. The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the skin and converted to heat. The heat is then absorbed by the cells being targeted, while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected.
A series of three to six treatments are typically necessary to remove most hair. With each session, there will be decreased hair growth and density. Any residual hair is generally thinner, softer and more invisible. Side effects are unusual and typically temporary, and there is no downtime.
People of all skin colors can safely have laser hair removal, but the person performing the procedure on people who have skin of color should have experience performing laser hair removal on darker skin tones. Men who have constant razor burn or ingrown hairs due to shaving can permanently eliminate their beard with laser hair removal. Once you’re no longer shaving, you won’t be bothered by razor burn or ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal won’t work on blonde, white, gray, or red hair because lasers cannot effectively target light-colored hair. You’ll need to keep the treated area covered and out of the sun until the skin heals. If you have a tan, you must wait for the tan to fade completely before it’s safe to have laser hair removal.

The most common areas to remove hair from are:
Bikini Area
Legs and Toes
Stomach, Chest and Back
Upper Lip and Chin

Before & After

To remove the hair, most patients need 2 to 6 laser treatments. After finishing the treatments, most patients do not see any hair on the treated skin for several months or even years. When the hair regrows, there tends to be less of it. The hairs also tend to be finer and lighter in color.
