What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Laser Hair Removal Los Angeles

Smooth, Soft, Gentle

Face, legs, chin, back, arms, underarms, bikini lines, and other places can benefit from Laser Hair Removal in Los Angeles. In addition, the use of lasers for hair removal has a number of advantages. Lasers can carefully target coarse, darker hairs without harming the skin nearby. A single laser pulse takes only a fraction of a second and can treat a large number of hairs simultaneously. Each second, the laser can treat an area around the size of a quarter. It takes less than a minute to treat a small region like the top lip, or as much as an hour to treat a larger area like the back or legs. Most patients suffer permanent hair loss by the end of three to seven treatments.

What can I expect during laser hair removal treatment?

How Gentle Hair Removal Works

The Gentlemax Pro Laser Hair Removal laser targets the hair follicle with intense laser light energy for thermal destruction to provide permanent hair reduction over the course of a few treatments. With fast treatment times, Gentle Hair Removal delivers a more comfortable patient experience through its distinctive Dynamic Cooling Device. This cooling system sprays the skin before each laser pulse with a cooling burst of cryogen over the treatment area, providing a Cooling Protection Factor over 50% greater than contact or air cooling for optimal comfort! Laser Hair Removal treatments take place in your practitioner’s office. Your practitioner will use a small handpiece to deliver an intense but gentle burst of energy onto targeted areas of the skin to remove unwanted hair.

Laser Hair Removal Results

A Clean Look

You will see your hair thinning in the weeks following treatment and eventually falling out. Laser Hair Removal will not affect hair that is not actively growing. Even while you'll notice a reduction in the thickness and visibility of hair after just one treatment, you'll need numerous touch-ups to achieve the best possible results. Most treatments are spaced out every four to six weeks to correspond with the hair's growth cycle.

Laser Hair Removal Recovery and Aftercare

Get Smooth Legs Without The Cost And Hassle Of Shaving Or Waxing

After your treatment, the area of skin that was worked on will feel warm afterward. Your treated areas will feel numb if you opt for a topical anesthetic. Pain will not be felt regardless of whether or not the treatment regions were numbed. As long as you take precautions to prevent sunburn, you can go about your normal routine.

The Laser Hair Removal therapy will cause the hair in the treated area to fall out approximately three to five days later. It could take up to 14 days for this to happen. However, you certainly can if you need to shave following your treatment. It's also important to know that laser therapy won't leave you with any sort of skin discoloration. In contrast, hyperpigmentation is a common side effect of shaving and waxing.

Laser Hair RemovalFrequently Asked Questions

Yes! Many Laser Hair Removal treatments don’t cater to all skin types, but a Gentlemax Pro Hair Removal treatment is right for you, no matter what your skin tone.

A treatment can take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the treatment area and the condition being treated. Both legs can often be treated in as few as 15 minutes, as can an average-sized man’s back.

Some patients may feel slight discomfort, which has been compared to snapping a rubber band against the skin. This discomfort resolves quickly and is minimized by our patented Dynamic Cooling Device™. Be sure and talk this over with your practitioner.

Multiple treatments are required to achieve the full hair removal effect. The hairs on your body are not always at the same stage, so you’ll need to undergo a few treatments, an average of six to eight weeks apart, to catch them all in the growth stage.

For about six weeks prior to Laser Hair Removal treatment, you should avoid plucking, electrolysis, or waxing. On the day of your treatment, the skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed of any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics, or self-tanning products. Apply sunblock (SPF 30 or above) before your treatment.

Do not expose the treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light prior to or immediately after treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, a prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed.

A cool compress or gel pack may be applied for additional comfort after your treatment. Any redness or swelling should resolve in a few hours.

After your Laser Hair Removal treatment, prevent sun exposure by applying sunblock (SPF 30 or above). Don’t scrub or rinse the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers in the first few days after treatment. Your practitioner may advise additional precautions.

Permanent side effects are rare and may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering, and purpura (a laser bruise) in the treated area—these usually do not last more than a few days. Your practitioner will have more information about potential side effects.
