CANDELA ALEXANDRITE LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Alexandrite laser hair removal is a safe, fast, and more effective procedure to eliminate unwanted hair than electrolysis, waxing, shaving or tweezing. The primary principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis. This means that the laser selectively heats the area that causes hair growth (the follicle), with little or no damage to the surrounding skin. Alexandrite laser hair removal works on individual hair follicles during their growth cycle to deliver consistent, lasting results regardless of skin color or body area. Few sessions of laser treatments (within a time period apart) are required to eliminate unwanted hair. With the latest laser device (Candela Alexandrite GentleLase Pro) hair removal is a painless procedure. The number of treatments that are required depends on the skin colour and hair colour.
Before the laser hair removal session your hair must be 2-3 mm long. The therapist scans the entire area with the laser. Thanks to the two cooling systems, laser treatment is practically painless and easy. Sessions must be repeated every month. Usually 5-6 sessions are required for the completion of hair removal. A temporary redness might appear at the end of the session, which will subside in a few hours or days. Our team will recommend the use of moisturizer creams which should be applied after the laser treatment. The following days after hair removal patients should apply a sun screen on the treated area. The new Candela GentleLase Pro hair removal offers more options and variable pulse duration. Laser hair removal is safer even during the summer months and on slightly tanned skins.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL AND REPEAT SESSIONS
Candela Alexandrite laser hair removal does not require a repeat session after treatment, however if you still have hair on some areas, you can book your repeat session within 10 days. Our practitioner will examine you and will repeat the treatment on the areas that still have hair.
