What is Gentle Hair Removal?
Gentle Hair Removal is a laser treatment targeting the hair follicles at the root for permanent hair reduction for all skin types. Gentle Hair Removal is easy on your skin, delivering results with less discomfort.
How Gentle Hair Removal works
Gentle Hair Removal laser targets the hair follicle at the root, delivering a burst of gentle energy and therapeutic heat to provide permanent hair reduction over the course of a few treatments. In additional super-fast treatment times, Gentle Hair Removal ensures additional comfort through its patented Dynamic Cooling DeviceTM, which uses cooling bursts of liquid cryogen for the most gentle laser hair removal treatment available today!
Is Gentle Hair Removal safe for darker skin tones?
Yes! Other laser hair removal treatments don’t cater to all skin types, but there’s a Gentle Hair Removal treatment that’s right for you, no matter what your skin tone.
How long does a Gentle laser hair removal treatment take?
A treatment can take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the treatment area and the condition being treated. Both legs can often be treated in as few as 15 minutes, as can an average-sized man’s back.
How many treatments will I need?
Multiple treatments are required to achieve a full hair removal effect. That’s because hair grows in three stages:
Anagen (the growth stage). Hair is thickest and darkest, so laser treatments are the most effective.
Catagen (the transitional stage). The hair begins to loosen from its follicle.
Telogen (the shedding stage). The hair falls out to make room for new growth.
The hairs on your body are not always at the same stage, so you’ll need to undergo a few treatments, an average of six weeks apart, to catch them all in the growth stage.
