This is the treatment for anyone wanting a permanent solution to hair removal.
Candela GentleLASE medical grade laser applies precise, controlled pulses of laser energy that reaches down the hair shaft into the hair follicle underneath the skin, cauterising the hair at its root. The surrounding tissue or skin is not damaged. The laser’s gentle beam of light damages and consequently prevents, the hair follicle from growing. Over several treatments, there is a gradual and eventually permanent reduction in the amount of hair in that area.
Yes, completely safe. Using a dynamic cooling system, the laser protects the epidermis, thus safely removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin.
Each laser treatment will result in less hair re-growth; as well as hair growing progressively slower, finer and lighter in colour, with each treatment.
The treatments are usually performed every 2 months. In most cases, six to eight treatments ranging from a few minutes to an hour or more are recommended for best results. See below for our price list.
The sensation is often described as a ‘hot pinch’, or ‘snapping’ feeling. The sensation only lasts for fractions of a second, and you may feel warmth or a tingling sensation for a short time afterward. Most people tolerate treatment without any topical aesthetic cream, which may be used to numb the skin for very sensitive individuals.
Temporary pinkness in the skin lasts a very short time, and most people return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. The treated area will “shed” some hairs over the next 2-4 weeks, and you will experience a period of hairlessness in the area while you wait for your next treatment.
