If you have had enough of unsightly stubbles and irksome ingrowns, or have been frustrated at other treatments that do not deliver, Candela G-Max permanent laser hair removal is the answer you are looking for. A dual wavelength laser platform that combines the fastest and most powerful 755 nm Alexandrite laser with 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser for high performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficacy and outstanding performance, it is above all safe, with high patient satisfaction rate. Traditional hair reduction lights and laser treatments such as IPL were faced with significant risks of pain, redness, crusting and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation due to burns. Because of these complications, hair removal treatments were usually limited to fairer skin types. The gold standard Gentle Hair Removal allows individuals of both fair and darker skin and hair profiles to be safely and effectively treated, putting an end to the bothersome (and painful) routine of shaving and waxing.
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure. The laser focuses light into the hair follicles. The pigment in hair follicles absorb the laser energy, which in turn destroys the hair follicle.
How does Candela’s G-Max Laser Hair Removal treatments work?
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 skin and converted to heat. The heat is then absorbed by the hair cells being targeted, while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected. Your skin may be slightly pink immediately following the procedure. This typically lasts from a few minutes to several hours after the procedure but will eventually subside.
Are laser hair removal treatments painful?
A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area and left on for 10 to 15 minutes to maximize comfort. Candela’s Laser Hair Removal treatments use a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™), which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of cryogen in adjustable durations—milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD helps ensure that the treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.
How should I prepare for the treatment?
If possible, hairs should be 1-2mm long when you arrive for your treatment, so that it is possible to mark out the treatment area. Our therapists may trim long hairs just before treatment to ensure all of the laser energy is transmitted to the hair follicle.
Avoid sun exposure at least two weeks before treatment. Do not bleach, pluck or wax 4 to 6 weeks before and after treatment.
How many treatments do I need?
As only hair in the active growing phase can be treated, the number of treatments will depend on the percentage of hair that is within this phase at the time of the laser treatment. This varies between individuals and also between different areas of the body. Treatment can be repeated every 4-6 weeks or at the advice of your doctor. Candela G-Max Permanent Hair Removal is incorporated into our Removal and Revival Program which also features Quattro Toning and Skin Smoothening Peel Mask for glowing skin as smooth as silk.
