Top 5 Questions about Laser Hair Removal

1. What are Candela’s Laser Hair Removal treatments like?

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. Your skin may be slightly red immediately following the procedure. This typically lasts from a few minutes to several hours after the procedure.

 2. Are laser hair removal treatments painful?

Some clients may feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, sometimes described as the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This discomfort resolves in several seconds and is minimized by Candela’s DCD cooling system. Candela’s Laser Hair Removal treatments use a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™), which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of cryogen in adjustable durations – milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD helps ensure that the treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.

 3. What precautions should I take throughout this process?

Discuss your specific needs with your laser service provider before beginning the GentleLase Pro treatments, but there are a few precautions you’ll need to take. Avoid sun exposure at least two weeks before treatment. Do not bleach, pluck or wax four-to-six weeks before and after treatment. Wait until your tan fades before beginning treatment.

4. How long do Candela’s Laser Hair Removal treatments take, and how many treatments will I require?

Treatment times may vary depending on your specific needs. Hair growth is reduced after each treatment and the number of treatments required will be based on your hair color and type, body area and skin tone.

5. Are Candela’s Laser Hair Removal treatments safe, and are there any side effects?

Laser and light-based treatments have been safely used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures. Your risks are minimal. Side effects may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering, and purpura (a laser bruise), in the treated area – these usually do not last more than a few days. Permanent side effects are rare.
