What Is Laser Hair Removal?

3 Minute Read: 

No one enjoys the necessity of having to shave every morning or go in for routine (and painful) waxing appointments just so they can keep their smooth, hair-free skin.

This is why laser hair removal is so beneficial. 

The GentleMax Pro® is a safe and effective laser hair removal device that delivers a permanent reduction in hair growth. This non-surgical laser targets and destroys the hair follicles at the root without damaging the surrounding skin. The GentleMan Pro® is unique in its use of a dual-mode system for efficiency and a cooling device for the comfort of the treatment areas.

Laser Hair Removal uses a laser device to remove unwanted hair.

Why Now Is the Best Time to Get a Laser Hair Removal? 

Summer is just around the corner, which means wearing outfits that show more skin. You will probably want to wear tank tops, shorts, bikinis, or dresses without the fear of hair showing.

Since laser hair removal is a gradual process that may require multiple treatment sessions, now is the best time to undergo a laser hair removal treatment if you want to be prepared for summer. Laser hair removal treats many areas, including the: 

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Bikini area

What Should I Expect After My Laser Hair Removal? 

A laser hair removal treatment will provide you with significant, lasting results. Typically, the procedure requires a series of two to six treatments, but this amount varies depending on the location, treatment size, and patient. 

After undergoing the procedure, you will notice the gradual reduction of hair and increase of smoother skin. 

You may need to repeat the treatment because hair growth is natural. It is best to repeat the procedures when the hair follicles are at the new-growth stage. 

How Should I Prepare for My Laser Hair Treatment? 

Laser hair removal is most effective on patients who have a sharp contrast between their hair and skin, such as dark hair and light skin. 

A consultation with your specialist will determine whether a laser hair removal treatment with the GentleMax Pro® is an ideal procedure for you. During your consultation, you should expect to speak about your medical history, personal or family history of skin disorders, and past hair treatments. 

Before undergoing a laser hair removal treatment, you will need to take several steps to prepare your skin. You will need to:

  • Reduce your sun exposure for at least six weeks before the procedure and wear sunscreen 
  • Avoid any other hair removal activities like waxing, plucking, or shaving for at least one or two weeks
