What is laser hair reduction?

Laser hair reduction is a great alternative to traditional hair reduction techniques, such as shaving, tweezing, waxing, and depilatory creams. Those traditional methods only provide temporary relief. Using the GentleLASE system, we can provide quick, pain-free, and permanent hair reduction.*

The GentleLASE System safely reduces unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. Facial areas are usually completed within ten minutes; legs, backs, and larger areas can take longer.

What can I expect during treatments?

Depending on the amount of hair being treated, the procedure varies from patient to patient. Generally, the treatment will include:

  • The wearing of safety eyewear to protect the practitioner and patient’s eyes from the laser light during the procedure.
  • A small handpiece that will be used to deliver the laser light to the skin. A light spray of coolant onto the skin will be felt just before each laser pulse.

A test area will be done prior to the entire treatment. Your full treatment may be done on the same day or up to 2 weeks later, depending on how your skin reacts to the laser.

Most patients experience little discomfort at the treatment site because of the dynamic cooling device. The degree of discomfort varies with each person, depending on his/her pain threshold. Topical anesthesia may also be requested based on individual preferences or tolerances. Be sure to discuss this with your provider in advance of your treatment.

What precautions should be taken before and after a treatment?

  • Avoid the sun 6 weeks before and after your treatment, or until your provider allows it.
  • The skin should not be tanned at all when having laser treatment.
  • If you have a history of coldsores, prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed.

You should discuss your desired results and the improvements you expect to achieve with your provider. Together you can decide if your expectations will be met and if this laser treatment is the best option for you.

How many treatments will I need

Most people will require 3-5 treatments, as the process is only effective on hair during the early growth phase.*
