Q & A: Candela Gentle Max Pro
Depending on your hair type and how many sessions you have undergone, our experts will probably use the Candela Gentle Max Pro for your hair removal. We chose the Candela Gentle Max Pro premium laser as its cooling technology offers unparalleled comfort and safety levels, while achieving very efficient results in the shortest time possible for a laser.
How does it work?
The laser generates sufficient heat at the hair follicle to destroy it and prevent future growth. The Dynamic Cooling Device (CDC) sprays a cooling burst of cryogen to ensure the safety of the skin and to prevent pain.
What steps should I take before and after the procedure?
Before: You should avoid waxing, shaving or other traditional hair-removal methods for six weeks prior to treatment. Also be sure to avoid sun exposure for two weeks prior to treatment.
After: You should avoid the sun for two weeks and cover treated area with sun block when you are outside during the day.
How many sessions are needed?
Treatment sessions vary in length and can be as short as 15 minutes for small areas, or 90 minutes for full-body hair removal. It usually takes 4-6 sessions to achieved the desired results. One session is not enough because, while the laser destroys hair follicles in their active growth, not all of the hair will be in its growth stage as the hair-growth cycle occurs in three stages.
Is it safe and comfortable?
Discomfort will be almost completely alleviated by the cooling CDC technology. CDC also helps eliminate side effects. Possible side effects of hair removal are minor and include erythema and skin redness, usually lasting only a few hours.
