Candela GentleMax LaserĀ Hair Removal

Laser hair removal has become increasingly popular as the laser technologies have improved to the point that all skin types may be treated as well as all hair types. Women, as well as men, are now enjoying the benefits of permanent hair elimination.

The Candela Gentle Max Hair Removal Laser is one of the most popular hair removal systems on the market today. Because of its unique ability to treat skin of all ethnicities, as well as its new painless technique, it is suited well for the patients of Blackledge Face Center. The laser uses an intense light and does not require painful needles, threads or chemicals.

Areas that may be treated successfully for laser hair removal include the legs, bikini, arms, chin, upper lip, face and neck and back and shoulders. Thousands of hairs may be eliminated in just one treatment session, so large areas can be treated during your appointment.

Patients get significant improvement during their initial treatment but respond best when treated in a series typically spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Not all hair follicles are actively growing during a laser treatment, therefore not all follicles are eliminated during a session. By spacing the treatments apart, our laser technician can successfully treat all the hair follicles as they begin to grow.

There is no downtime with laser hair removal. Patients are slightly pink for 30 to 45 minutes after the treatment but may resume their normal activities. As opposed to other treatments on the market today, laser hair removal is permanent and not a temporary fix.
