What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Are you sick and tired of the traditional methods of hair removal? Embarrassing hairs are almost as frustrating as the go-to hair removal methods themselves. Plucking, waxing, and electrolysis are painful and time-consuming. Luckily, there is now a better option.

Laser hair removal is a permanent way to remove unwanted hair on the face and body. The laser works by destroying or damaging the hair follicle, thus preventing the hair from growing back. We rely on the GentleMax Pro laser for long-term hair removal.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

The laser aims a concentrated beam towards the hair, which contains pigment cells. The laser energy travels down the hair shaft and directly into the follicle. The laser’s heat permanently damages the hair follicle, preventing regrowth of hair.

Hair follows a cycle. It has periods of growth, rest, and shedding. Laser hair removal is only effective during a follicle’s growth phase. When laser hair removal is performed on a hair follicle during its resting phase, the follicle is unaffected, since there is no hair for the laser to lock onto. The hair will regrow and can be treated during a future session.

The GentleMax Pro laser offers a permanent hair-removal solution. Once the technology has effectively targeted the hair follicle, the hair will not regrow.

What Is the GentleMax Pro Laser and How Does It Work?

The GentleMax Pro is considered the gold standard in laser hair removal. It is often recommended by The American Society of Plastic Surgeons. It features the latest technological advancements in laser hair removal and enables the doctor or aesthetician to deliver controlled and targeted amounts of laser energy to the affected areas.

The GentleMax Pro laser is effective for all types of skin shades and for individuals with vascular and or pigmented lesions. It uses a dual-wavelength laser (YAG and Alexandrite) to target stubborn hair follicles. As a result, the laser has a powerful and expedient treatment process.

The GentleMax Pro laser features an additional patented Dynamic Cooling Device, which immediately reduces any discomfort from the laser pulses by cooling the skin of the targeted area. As the hair follicle is being treated, the system’s cooling device promotes cooling comfort on the patient’s skin.

What Are Some of the Benefits of Using the GentleMax Pro Laser?

If you opt for laser hair removal using the GentleMax Pro, you can expect the following benefits:

• Less pain during and after treatments
