The Candela GentleLASE Plus laser is a non-invasive light therapy device specifically designed to eliminate unwanted hair from all parts of the body. The Candela GentleLASE Plus generates a pulse of intense, concentrated light which is directed through a small handpiece when it is applied to the treatment site.
This laser energy passes through the skin to the hair follicle, where the energy is absorbed by pigment in the hair and hair follicle, causing selective damage to the hair root without damaging delicate pores and structures of the skin. The laser is pulsed, or “turned on”, for only a fraction of a second. The duration of the pulses is carefully calibrated so that laser energy will be absorbed by the hair follicle without transferring excessive heat to the surrounding skin.
Some of the hair which was in the treated follicles is ejected during treatment, and the rest is shed over the next 2-3 weeks. The surface of the skin is protected by the Dynamic Cooling Device. This device sprays a short burst of cryogen to the skin to cool and protect the epidermis. The spray is computer calibrated to work with your skin type. This protects the skin while effectively treating the unwanted hair.
Unlike “hair-by-hair” treatments with electrolysis, the laser uses a wide beam which treats many hairs at once. Because the Candela GentleLASE Plus can treat dozens of hairs with each pulse, it is possible to treat larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs and face. The Candela GentleLASE Plus can be used just about anywhere on the body Even sensitive areas such as the nipples, upper lip and bikini line can be treated easily. The laser’s design allows us to customize treatment, according to your hair and skin color, hair texture, and location on the body.
Candela GentleLASE Plus treatment is a safe, fast, gentle and effective method for hair removal. In just a few treatment sessions using the gentle power of laser, you can greatly improve the appearance of skin which is disfigured by unwanted hair.
