At Advanced Aesthetics we use the Candela GentleLase Pro, the “Gold Standard” for laser hair removal. GentleLase Pro is the next step in laser-based hair removal and skin care. Harnessing the power of laser energy, GentleLase Pro penetrates the hair follicle, destroying it at its root while preserving the surrounding skin. GentleLase Pro also works effectively and safely to provide a non-invasive treatment for cosmetic to dermatologic skin conditions such as sun-damaged skin, age spots and freckles.
Minimal Discomfort, Minimal Downtime!
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser light technology targets the hair follicle by the pigment in the hair and stops it from re-growing without damaging surrounding skin. At Advanced Aesthetics we use the Candela GentleLase Pro which is the “gold standard” for hair removal lasers. The GentleLase Pro uses a Dynamic Cooling Device (“DCD”) which treats the skin with a cooling burst before and after the laser pulse. This DCD makes the laser treatment more comfortable.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
Most people compare the treatment to being snapped with a rubber band. The Dynamic Cooling Device, DCD, helps ensure that GentleLase Pro treatments are as comfortable as they are effective! The discomfort is minimal and because most areas are treated quickly patients find the discomfort tolerable.
How long does it take?
Depending on the area being treated, smaller treatment areas such as underarms and bikini can be done in as little as 10 minutes. Larger areas like legs can be treated in approximately 30 minutes.
How long does it last?
Effective laser hair removal requires a series of treatments. Once treated, the hair is destroyed under the skin. Gradually, up to 2 weeks later, it will shed leaving behind smooth, soft skin. A few weeks later, new growth will appear, usually just prior to the next scheduled treatment. Each treatment results in less and less hair re-growth. Most patients have no re-growth by the time a treatment package is completed.
What are the side effects?
Laser and light-based treatments have been safely used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures. All treatment results are individual, but most procedures have a low risk of adverse side effects. Typically patients experience a mild, sunburned feeling, and occasionally minor swelling and redness immediately after treatment. This usually lasts two – 24 hours. This irritation can be treated with Aloe or Hydrocortisone creams. In rare instances pigment changes can occur that generally vanish over time.
What areas can be treated?
Almost any unwanted hair can be treated. Most common areas are face, bikini, underarms, legs, arms, back and chest.
How much do treatments cost?
We offer treatment packages of ten. The cost of each package varies depending on the size of the area to be treated and the amount of hair. Our package treatments never expire. Some individuals experience no re-growth after 8 or 9 treatments, in this case the remaining treatments are held on your account for whenever you may need a touch up in that area. Please call our office for a complimentary consultation and specific pricing information. We accept checks, all major credit cards and care credit.
