The Gentle Laser Hair Removal Products from Candela target the hair follicle with lase energy, destroying it at its root while preserving the surrounding skin:
Laser energy is delivered through a small handpiece operated by your practitioner. The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the hair follicle and converted to heat. The heat damages the hair follicle while surrounding tissue remains unaffected. Your skin may be red immediately following the procedure. This typically lasts from a few minutes to several hours the procedure.
Gentle Hair Removal treatments use a patended Dynamic Cooling DeviceTM (DCDTM ), which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of cryogen just milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD helps ensure that Gentle Hair Removal treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.
Avois sun exposure at least two weeks before treatment. Do not bleach, pluck or wax 4 to 6 weeks before and after treatment.
Treatment times may vary depending on your specific needs. Hair growth is reduced after each treatment and numbers of treatments required will be based on your hair colour and type, body area and skin tone.
