Laser Hair Removal with the Candela GentleMax Pro
“21st Century State of the Art Technology”
The Gold Standard Gentle Hair Removal™ – for All Skin Types
Radiance is proud to offer the latest in laser technology for hair removal – the Candela GentleMax Pro.
It’s state of the art technology allows for all skin types to be treated including darker skin tones. GentleMax Pro can treat the face, arms, chest, back, legs, bikini, and full “Brazilian” area with little or no downtime. This new dual wavelength laser (Alex 755 nm and Nd Yag 1064 nm) makes treatment faster and more effective.
GentleMax Pro has a unique cryo-spray mechanism that increases patient comfort with a cold blast of cryogen every time the laser is pulsed, making laser hair removal with the GentleMax Pro more tolerable than machines of the past. There are no messy gels, no multiple passes over and over the skin, down time is minimal, and treatment time quicker and more efficient than ever before.
The number of treatments varies depending on every individual, but a series of 5 treatments, spaced every 6-8 weeks, is what Radiance recommends. Maintenance treatments may be needed after the series is completed to keep the area hair free.
While the laser can be used on any skin, it is effective on dark hair only. Blond, gray, light red hair (strawberry blond with no brown overtones), and peach fuzz (vellus hair) will be unaffected by laser treatments. It is also imperative that regardless of your skin tone, you must NOT have tanned skin of any sort in the treatment area, including a spray tan. This will hinder the machine from doing the job correctly and may cause discoloration to your skin.
Call Radiance and ask to speak to a laser or skin care specialist and we’d be happy to consult with you over the phone to begin your laser hair removal as soon as possible.
Preparation before your Laser Hair Removal Treatment:
Do not wax, tweeze, or use depilatories on your hair prior to treatment because this will remove the target pigmentation in the hair follicle.
You can shave up until the day of the laser treatment. Do not use retinoid creams (tretinoin, tazarotene, or adapalene) in the treatment area for at least several days before treatment.
