What is laser hair removal?

GentleMaxPro distributes a non-invasive manner light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at once. A specialized cooling pulse decreases any discomfort associated with laser hair removal treatments.

GentleMaxPro delivers a pulse of light to the target area. The laser hair removal treatment may last a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on how many and which areas need treatment. GentleMax Pro lasers can remove hair from every part of the body including back, underarms, arms, legs, cheeks, and lips.

Are treatments painful?

You may feel a pinch or mild sting, or the sensation of a rubber band snapping on your skin. No anesthesia is necessary, but we sometimes use topical anesthetic creams at the patient’s request. The GentleMax patented cooling system which sprays a cryogen spray on the top layer of skin makes the procedure quite tolerable.

How many laser hair removal treatments are needed?

Because different amounts of your hair grow at different cycles, multiple treatments are required to treat them for optimal effect. Many of our patients opt for our unlimited treatment plan which is more economical in the long run.

Does laser hair removal have any side effects?

Minimal swelling and redness may result but these effects are only temporary. These effects indicate the hair follicles have responded favorably to the laser hair removal treatment. Most patients return to work or normal activities right after treatment.

How important is where I go for laser hair removal?

You should thoughtfully consider the clinic you choose for any aesthetic treatment. Too many poorly trained clinicians offer ineffective and sometimes dangerous treatments. At Canada MedLaser Clinics, we perform all laser hair removal treatments under medical supervision by the most qualified and highly trained estheticians in Canada.

How should I prepare for laser hair removal?

We don’t recommend you wax or pluck hair before treatment, but you can shave the day before. Once your treatment sessions start, we recommend you stop both plucking and waxing completely.

What are the restrictions on laser hair removal?

After treatment, you can return to normal activities. You should apply a sunscreen on areas treated by laser hair removal, and we may advise a formulated skin care product.
