1. What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment that uses a laser, like the Candela GentleMax Pro, to target and destroy hair follicles and reduce hair growth. The Candela GentleMax Pro is FDA-approved and one of the best lasers for hair removal. This non-invasive laser safely targets hair follicles to permanently reduce hair growth without any downtime. The Candela GentleMax Pro employs dual wavelength technology, combining the power of two lasers, to provide fast and effective treatments.

2. Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

Everyone is a candidate for laser hair removal with the Candela GentleMax Pro. The GentleMax Pro is effective in targeting all hair colors on any skin type! Laser hair removal is ideal for anyone who wants to reduce unwanted hair growth. Popular areas to target include the bikini line, underarms, legs, arms, and face. Laser hair removal is increasingly popular among men, and they target areas like the back, chest, neck, and face

3. What type of equipment is used?

At SkinLocal, we only use the best laser equipment: the Candela GentleMax Pro. The GentleMax Pro emits pulses of light into the skin, targeting the hair’s root and follicle, eliminating further hair growth. This highly effective laser removes 80% of targeted hair in just three treatment sessions. The Candela GentleMax Pro is fast, and each zone only takes a few minutes to treat. Best of all, the GentleMax Pro is 100% pain-free!

4. What happens during a GentleMax Pro Session?

During your consultation, your skin technician will determine the best treatment plan to suit your specific skin and hair type and achieve your desired outcome. Your skin technician will guide you through the pre-treatment instructions, which include protecting the treated area with sunscreen and shaving instead of waxing. At the beginning of your session, you will receive protective eyewear. Your skin technician will proceed to deliver gentle pulses of laser light into the skin to target unwanted hair growth.

5. How many treatments will I need?

The Candela GentleMax Pro destroys hair follicles with a gentle laser pulse light to permanently eliminate further hair growth. The hair follicle must be eliminated during the active growth phase for the treatment to be successful. Since each hair is in a different growth phase, it takes a few treatments to capture each hair at the right time to achieve the desired result. In most cases, a course between 4 and 8 sessions is recommended. Each treatment is spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to allow the hair follicles to reach a new growth phase.

6. When will I see results from a GentleMax Pro treatment?

Since hair grows in cycles, 4 to 8 treatments are recommended, but most clients start seeing a significant reduction in hair growth after their first and second treatments! The Candela GentleMax Pro removes 80% of targeted hair in just three treatment sessions on most skin types. As you continue to have regular treatments, hair growth will slow down until it stops altogether.

7. Is laser hair removal painful?

No, the Candela GentleMax Pro is completely pain-free. The revolutionary laser has a cooling device to ensure you feel as comfortable as possible during the procedure.

8. What is the cost of laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is relatively inexpensive and depends on the size of the area you want to treat and the number of sessions necessary to achieve your desired results. A session at SkinLocal costs between $99 and $275 or between $575 and $1 375 for a package of 6 sessions.
