What is the Candela hair removal laser ?

The "Candela laser", a revolutionary long-pulse high energy alexandrite laser system, emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin, to the hair follicle, where it is absorbed.

The laser energy is transformed into heat, which can disable the follicle while leaving the surrounding skin unchanged.

The skin is further protected during treatment by a dynamic cooling process. A cold spray is used on the skin, cooling the upper layers and providing patients with increased comfort.
This selectivity helps to protect the skin, while effectively treating the unwanted hair.


What are the advantages of the laser ?

Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking and waxing, provide only temporary relief. Until now, the only semi-permanent way to remove hair has been by electrolysis, which can be painful, time-consuming and is limited to small skin areas. Scarring, allergic reaction and ingrown hairs are possible side effects of all these hair removal methods. The "Candela laser" can remove unwanted body hair without damaging the surrounding skin structure. Facial and bikini areas are usually completed in ten to fifteen minutes; legs and larger areas can take longer.


Who is a good candidate ?

The best results have been achieved on individuals with light skin and dark hair. Results may be somewhat limited with dark skin and light hair. Many factors may influence the treatment process, and are generally best evaluated and discussed in person.
