Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light to eliminate unwanted hair from any part of the body. This procedure, which works by focusing light beams on hair follicles and destroying them, is beneficial for people who are unhappy with shaving or waxing results.
People with light-colored skin and dark-colored hair benefit the most from laser hair removal, but it can help people of all skin types and tones.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
- Laser hair removal comes with a lot of advantages, such as:
- Does not take time and can treat many hairs at once.
- Guarantees permanent hair loss after 3 to 7 sessions.
- Helps smoothen the skin and improves its appearance.
- Targets dark, coarse hairs while causing no damage to the surrounding skin.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?
You should refrain from shaving the area to be treated for three to eight days before the laser hair removal. You should also avoid bleaching, plucking, or waxing your hair for at least four to six weeks before the treatment.
Sun exposure should be avoided for six weeks before and after the treatment because laser hair removal is less efficient when exposed to the sun. In addition, you will be advised to stop taking herbs or light-sensitive medications for at least one day before the treatment.
How does laser hair removal work?
The laser professional will apply a cold gel or a cooling cream to the skin to protect it and help alleviate the sting of the laser pulses. The laser machine will be adjusted to match the color, density, and location of the hair you are having removed, as well as the color of your skin.
During laser hair removal, the laser specialist points a hand-held laser device to your skin and directs a pulse of laser light to the targeted hair follicles. The heat generated by the laser beam will destroy the hair follicles, preventing future hair growth. The laser professional will then monitor the area exposed to the light pulse for several minutes to ensure that the settings are proper and that no undesirable reactions occur. Small areas can be treated in under a minute, and larger areas can take up to an hour.
What to expect after laser hair removal?
For the initial few hours following laser hair removal, you may experience redness and swelling. To relieve any discomfort after the procedure, you can apply ice packs, cold water, or anti-inflammatory creams.
The treated area of your skin will appear and feel burnt for a day or two after the procedure, but you can apply moisturizers to help. Your treated hair will fall out over the next month.
Avoid sunlight and tanning beds for six weeks after laser hair removal and between regular treatments or as instructed by your doctor. To help prevent transitory changes in the color of the treated skin, use high-quality sunscreen SPF 70 when going outdoors for the next month.
Your next session is scheduled four to six weeks later, and you will continue to receive treatments until your hair stops growing.
Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
Anyone can have laser hair removal, but the efficiency of laser hair removal varies depending on your hair and skin type. Laser hair removal is most effective on people with lighter complexions and darker hair.
Our Modern Laser Hair Removal Machines
Candela GentleMax Pro
The Candela GentleMax Pro is a cutting-edge device designed for professional laser hair removal treatments. It utilizes a unique combination of two powerful laser technologies: Alexandrite and Nd: YAG. These two lasers can be adjusted to different wavelengths, allowing for effective and safe hair removal on a wide range of skin types.
The Alexandrite laser is known for its precision in targeting melanin, the pigment responsible for hair color. It emits a specific wavelength of light that is highly absorbed by melanin, effectively destroying the hair follicles while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. This laser is particularly effective for lighter skin tones and finer hair types.
The Nd: YAG laser, on the other hand, has a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the skin. This makes it suitable for darker skin tones and thicker hair types, as it can target the hair follicles without causing damage to the surrounding tissue.
The GentleMax Pro features a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD), which sprays a cooling burst of cryogen onto the skin milliseconds before each laser pulse. This helps to minimize discomfort and protect the skin from potential thermal damage, ensuring a more comfortable and safe treatment experience.
With its versatile technology, the Candela GentleMax Pro offers fast and efficient hair removal treatments for various body areas, including the face, legs, underarms, and bikini line. It is commonly used in professional clinics and medical spas, providing long-lasting results and high patient satisfaction.
Cynosure’s laser hair removal system utilizes a combination of different laser technologies, including Alexandrite, Nd: YAG, and diode lasers. These lasers can be adjusted to specific wavelengths and settings, allowing for precise targeting of hair follicles while minimizing damage to surrounding skin tissue.
The Alexandrite laser technology in Cynosure devices is particularly effective for individuals with lighter skin tones and fine hair. It emits a specific wavelength that is highly absorbed by melanin, the pigment responsible for hair color, thereby disabling the hair follicles and impeding future hair growth.
For individuals with darker skin tones or coarser hair, the Nd: YAG and diode lasers in Cynosure systems are utilized. These lasers have longer wavelengths that can penetrate deeper into the skin, enabling effective hair removal while minimizing the risk of adverse effects.
Cynosure’s laser hair removal device incorporates advanced cooling mechanisms, including built-in cooling systems or integrated contact cooling, to enhance patient comfort during treatment. This helps to alleviate any potential discomfort or heat-related sensations that may occur during the procedure.
With its diverse range of laser technologies and customizable settings, Cynosure device provides the flexibility to tailor treatments to the unique needs of each patient. This ensures optimal results and high patient satisfaction, making Cynosure a popular choice for people seeking a comfortable laser hair removal experience.
