Laser hair removal effectively eliminates unwanted hair. Skin & Cosmetic Solutions uses the GentleMax Pro laser to treat hair on all skin tones, ranging from fine to coarse on small or large areas.
The GentleMax Pro laser emits a delicate beam of light that passes through the skin and is absorbed by the hair follicle. Laser energy transforms into heat and destroys the targeted hair follicle, leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Further protection during treatment is provided by a patented cooling system that increases comfort.
Since hair grows in three cycles, patients undergo at least 6-8 treatments. The number of treatments necessary is determined by the hair’s response to the laser, and numerous hair follicles in larger areas can be treated at one time. Treatment may take a few minutes or an hour depending on the size of the area being treated. Immediately following treatment, the targeted area’s appearance may look slightly "sun burned" and show signs of swelling, blistering and mild bruising, but this won’t last for more than a few days.
A consultation is required prior to treatment to review the procedure and necessary preparations.
