Benefits Of Diode Laser Hair Removal
- Smoother skin, free of unwanted hair
- Ultra Fast
Choice of Cooling Protection:
Choose from two cooling systems – Air Cooling Compatible (ACC), which offers high air flow at a specified temperature, or Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD). Candela’s patented DCD delivers low-temperature cryogen almost simultaneously with the delivery of the laser pulse. This choice of cooling options sets the GentleLase Pro apart from all other long-pulsed Alexandrite lasers.
Diode Laser Hair Removal FAQ
What are Candela’s Laser Hair Removal treatments like?
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 cells being targeted, while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected. Your skin may be slightly red immediately following the procedure. This typically lasts from a few minutes to several hours after the procedure.
Are Diode laser hair removal treatments painful?
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.
What precautions should I take throughout this process?
Avoid sun exposure at least two weeks before treatment. Do not bleach, pluck or wax 4 to 6 weeks before and after treatment. Wait for tanned skin to fade before beginning treatment.
How long do Candela’s laser Hair Removal treatments take, and how many treatments will I require?
Treatment times may vary depending on your specific needs. Hair growth is reduced after each treatment and the number of treatments required will be based on your hair color and type, body area and skin tone.
Are Candela’s laser Hair Removal treatments safe, and are there any side effects?
Laser and light-based treatments have been safely used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures.
How does hair removal with elōs work?
Hair follicles are precisely targeted and destroyed using the revolutionary elōs combination of bi-polar radio frequency and light energies.
Is hair removal with elōs right for me?
Both men and women can achieve permanent hair reduction on almost all body areas. Only elōs is proven to remove lighter colored hair, on all skin tones. To achieve a successful outcome on lighter hair colors, more treatments may be needed compared to darker hair colors.
When can I expect to see results?
Hair growth is reduced after each treatment. The number of treatments required will be based on your hair color and type, body area, and skin tone.
Does it hurt?
Cooling of the skin surface as well as constant measurement of the skin’s resistance ensures safety and comfort during treatment. This is a no-downtime procedure. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
How does Diode laser hair removal work on different skin types?
Melanin is the most common target to destroy hair follicles with lasers utilizing wavelengths from 590 to 1200 nano meters.
Melanin, being the target chromophore, presents a delicate problem for darker skin patients with types IV,V, and VI skin. The high amounts of melanin in the epidermal regions of the darker skinned patients absorb too much of the laser and can therefore heat up and burn. Further, the contrast between hair (the target of the laser) and skin also is often not good.
In comparison, the lighter skin types I, II, and III epidermal regions can relatively ignore the laser and have much less chance of heating up and burning. Unlike the darker skin types, there does exist a good contrast between hair and skin and therefore much higher more effective temperatures can be used on lighter skin types.
Finally, suntanned skin cannot be safely treated by lasers with wavelengths 590-810nm. Tanning excites the melanocyte cells to produce new melanin to protect the skin. Only the Nd:YAG laser (1064nm) can be safely and aggressively used on suntanned skin because this longer wavelength travels past the skin surface and leaves the epidermis free of the excessive heat and targets the deeper hair follicle.
