GentleLase Pro

The GentleLase Pro is a hair removal laser by Candela, approved for the FDA for permanent hair reduction. This laser non-invasively removes hair from all parts of the body. It is suitable not just for the face, legs, arms and back, but even sensitive areas such as underarms, nipples, and bikini line. Laser hair removal treatment is ideal for patients suffering from ingrown hairs or razor burn.
The light beam emitted from the laser selectively targets only the pigment in cells underneath the skin’s surface, in the hair follicle and the hair shaft itself. When pigment in the hair follicle and shaft absorb the light, this energy is converted to a millisecond pulse of heat. This causes thermal damage to cells in the hair follicle, leading to delayed regrowth, as well as permanent destruction of the hair follicle. Anesthetic cream can be applied to minimize discomfort.
The GentleLase Pro is optimized for removing hair in lighter skin types, while our CoolGlide laser is suitable for treating unwanted hair in both light and dark skin. If you have unwanted hair, or inflammatory reactions to shaving, ask your practitioner which hair removal treatment is right for you.
