Benefits of Laser Hair Removal Compared to Alternative Treatments
The primary benefits of laser hair removal include:
Larger areas may be treated with less discomfort than with electrolysis, waxing or tweezing.
The Candela GentleLASE Plus combines speed, comfort, and long lasting results.
The Candela GentleLASE Plus works on any area of the body where a hair- free appearance is desired.
The Candela GentleLASE Plus is safe for use on pregnant women – who respond well because their hair is often thicker and darker during pregnancy. We can treat any area of the body on pregnant women except the lower abdominal area. We do not believe that there is a danger to the fetus but we choose not to take any chances at all.
Shaving, waxing and depilatory creams remove the hair but leave the hair follicles intact, so the hair regrows within one to four weeks in most cases. Candela GentleLASE Plus laser hair removal offers you a long-term reduction in both the amount of hair and also in many cases a reduction in thickness and color of hair shafts which do grow back.
Hair removal methods like tweezing, waxing or sugaring which cause irritation may actually stimulate hair growth. This happens because one way the body defends itself against having hair yanked out is to produce thicker, stronger hairs which are harder to pull out next time.
Candela GentleLASE Plus hair removal offers long-lasting results, and even if hair does eventually grow back it is usually finer in texture and lighter in color than the original hair, and much less of a cosmetic problem.
What areas of the body can be treated?
ALL parts of the body can be treated with the Candela GentleLASE Plus. In women, the most common areas for treatment are upper lip, chin, bikini line, arms and legs, and underarms. In men, the most common areas for treatment are shoulders and back, and the beard area.
