Laser Hair Removal Q & A

How does laser hair removal work?

Through the use of thermal (heat) energy, the GentleMax Pro® precisely delivers a gentle burst of energy to your hair follicles, without damaging the surrounding skin. The thermal energy from the laser damages your hair follicles at the root, so the hair is unable to grow back. The skin surrounding your hair follicles is left unharmed because the pigment in your hair absorbs the laser light, not your skin.

The GentleMax Pro is unique in that it has a built-in cooling system, the patented Dynamic Cooling Device™, and fast treatment times, so your laser hair removal experience is as comfortable as possible. Unlike many other lasers, the GentleMax Pro works on all skin types, colors, and hair colors.

What areas can I treat with the GentleMax Pro laser system?

The GentleMax Pro laser hair removal system works for men and women in nearly every area of your body where you’d like to remove unwanted hair, including:

  • Legs and feet
  • Buttocks
  • Face: upper lip, chin, between your eyebrows
  • Back
  • Chest or breasts
  • Belly
  • Bikini area
  • Underarms
  • Arms and hands
  • Neck and shoulders

The aestheticians and laser technicians tailor a laser hair removal plan that helps you become hair-free after a few sessions with the GentleMax Pro laser.

Why do I need more than one laser hair removal treatment?

Your hair grows in different stages, so some hair is in the shedding stage while other hair follicles are actively growing. The laser most effectively treats hair in its growth stage, so most men and women need 4-6 treatment sessions to disturb all the hair follicles as they are growing. This treatment achieves the most permanent hair-reduction results.* Dr. Pabla or Marci Rusk advise you about the number of treatments you need, depending on the areas of hair you’re having treated.

What can I expect during a laser hair removal treatment?

During a laser hair removal session, you wear protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the intense light of the laser. Your aesthetician uses a handheld device to press gently against your skin to deliver the laser energy to the treatment area. The laser feels like the snapping of a rubber band against your skin as the thermal energy penetrates your hair follicles below the surface.

Since the GentleMax Pro has a built-in cooling device to help keep your skin comfortable during the process, it’s the gentlest, most comfortable laser hair removal option you can get.
