Hair free… Beautiful Skin
Our lasers and IPL will help you to achieve a smooth hair free skin using light energy.
The light penetrates the hair follicle, destroying it at its root while preserving the surrounding skin.
It is also a gentle, safe method of reducing wrinkles and removing pigmented lesions, including age spots, freckles and damage from the sun.
• Smoother skin, free of unwanted hair
• Freedom from sun-damaged skin, age spots or freckles
• A reduction in wrinkles
What is the laser treatment 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 pink immediately following the procedure; typically, this lasts from a few minutes to several hours after the procedure.
Are the treatments painful?
The GentleLase Pro system uses a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™), which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layers with a cooling burst of cryogen in adjustable durations—milliseconds before and after the laser pulse. DCD helps ensure that GentleLase Pro treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.
What precautions should I take throughout thisprocess?
Discuss your specific needs with us 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 4 to 6 weeks before and after treatment. Wait until your tan fades before beginning treatment.
How long do the treatments take, and how many treatments will I require?
Treatment times may vary depending on your specific needs, but treatments can usually be performed in under an hour. You’ll want to discuss your specific needs with us to determine how many treatments you’ll require.
Is treatment 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. All treatment results are individual, but most procedures have a low risk of adverse side effects. Some patients experience pigment changes that generally vanish over time.
