How does Laser Hair Removal work?

  • Laser light targets the pigment in the hair follicle.
  • Heat is absorbed and destroys the cells lining the hair follicle specifically around the bulb, bulge, and vascular supply, preventing the hair from growing back.
  • Long-term stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing after a treatment regime.
  • Laser hair removal affects hair follicles only when they are in the Anagen or growth phase. This means more than one treatment is necessary to disable hair follicles that subsequently enter the growth phase.
  • You will need 6-8 treatments of laser to see complete result.

Frequently asked questions

Are the treatments painful?

The Gentle 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 Gentle treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.

What precautions should I take throughout this process?

Discuss your specific needs with us before beginning the Gentle treatments, but there are a few precautions you’ll need to take.

Avoid sun exposure at least two weeks before a Gentle hair removal treatment. Do not bleach, pluck or wax four to six weeks before and after, and wait until your tan fades before beginning treatment.

Before a pigmented or vascular lesion treatment, skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed. It is important not to expose the intended treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light prior to or immediately after treatment.

Can all skin types be treated?

Gentle offers effective laser hair removal treatments on the widest variety of skin and hair types. We will advise on the number of treatments for permanent hair reduction, while improving skin quality and revealing silky, smooth skin

How long do Gentle 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.

Are there any side effects?

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.

What is the difference between Candela Medical Grade lasers and IPL lasers?

  • Medical Grade Laser Hair Removal treatment utilises a solitary wavelength (or colour) of light, all arranged and going in one direction.
  • This empowers the Laser to focus on the pigment at the base of the hair root, quickly warming it and destroying the hair follicle for all time.
  • Since it’s so exactly controlled, there’s a great deal less danger of harm to encompassing skin.
  • Laser can be safely used on all skin types, put basically, less sessions are required (usually six to eight), with less risk of damage to surrounding skin.
  • IPL hair expulsion resembles an intense camera flash. It utilizes a significantly more extensive scope of colours, with light going every which way. That implies that it influences the encompassing skin a great deal more, conceivably causing harm, and potentially scarring.
  • The IPL machines are much simpler and a great deal less advanced.
  • IPL machines cost a great deal less meaning that anyone can buy an IPL machine
  • With IPL Hair removal there is a much greater risk of pigment issues due to the heat emitted from the machine.
  • Contrasted with laser, more IPL hair removal sessions are required as it’s not focusing in on the hairs as successfully.
