What are Candela’s Laser Hair Removal treatments like?
The laser energy is released through a small hand-piece operated by a professional. The laser emits an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the skin and converted into heat. The heat is then absorbed by the targeted cells, while the surrounding tissue is unaffected. Your skin may be slightly red immediately after the procedure. This usually lasts from a few minutes to several hours after the procedure.
Are laser hair removal treatments painful?
Candela laser hair removal uses a patented device, Dynamic Cooling Device ™ (DCD ™), which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the skin with a refreshing burst of cryogen, before the laser pulse. The DCD ™ helps ensure that treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.
What precautions should I take during this process?
Avoid sun exposure, at least two weeks before treatment. Do not bleach, shave or wax the area 4 to 6 weeks before or after treatment. Wait for the tanned skin to fade before starting treatment.
How long can Candela laser hair removal treatments take and how many treatments will I need?
Treatment times may vary based on your specific needs. Hair growth is reduced after each treatment, and the number of treatments required depends on hair color, type, body area, and skin tone.
Are the Candela laser hair removal treatments safe and have any side effects?
Laser and Light-based treatments have been used safely for many years and in a wide variety of cosmetic and medical procedures.
