WHAT IS THE Candela GentleLASE AND WHY IS IT A SAFE TREATMENT?
The GentleLASE, a revolutionary long-pulse high energy alexandrite laser system emits a gentle beam of light, that passes thru the skin, to the hair follicle, where it is absorbed. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which can disable the follicle leaving the surrounding skin unchanged. The skin is further protected during treatment by a dynamic cooling process where a cryogen is sprayed onto the skin cooling the upper layers providing the patients increased comfort. This selectively helps to protect the skin, while effectively treating the unwanted hair.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of treatments required depends upon your skin, hair coloring, and coarseness of the hair. Generally 2 - 4 treatments are needed to effectively treat the follicle in the growth phase.
