Laser Hair Removal Q & A
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal is a consistently popular aesthetic service for men and women alike. It significantly reduces unwanted body hair and essentially eliminates the need to spend your time waxing, tweezing, and shaving.
Lasers are intense, focused beams of light. When used in laser hair removal, the beams are drawn to the pigment in your hair. The laser energy heats and damages the hair follicles that are responsible for growing hair, effectively reducing or even eliminating future hair growth.
Hair follicles targeted with laser hair removal are permanently damaged. Over several laser treatments, the follicles may get so damaged that no new hair grows at all.
At Galen Healthcare & Aesthetics, the team uses Candela GentleMax Pro®, the gold standard in laser hair removal. The dual-wavelength laser system utilizes 755 nm and 1064 nm lasers for a customizable treatment for every patient’s skin type and needs.
What areas can be treated with laser hair removal?
The Candela GentleMax Pro is a flexible laser system that’s effective in areas both large and small. Laser hair removal can treat all the most common trouble spots, including:
- Upper lip
- Bikini area
Smaller areas, like the upper lip, may take just a few minutes to treat. Treatment sessions for larger areas, like the back or legs, may take one to two hours to complete.
Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?
If you’re bothered by unwanted body hair, you could benefit from laser hair removal. The laser specialists at Galen Healthcare & Aesthetics have experience and training to deliver the best possible results. All laser treatments are performed under physician supervision, so you can be confident in your care.
Your aesthetician begins by reviewing your medical history and your goals. The Candela laser system is safe and effective on all skin types and skin tones, and your provider talks with you about the results you can expect.
While every patient's needs vary, most people see the best results with a series of six or more treatments. More treatments increase the likelihood that hair will grow thinner, finer, and possibly disappear completely.
