Candela Gentle Laser Hair Removal

Children & Adult Skin Clinic is excited to offer the GentleYAG® laser system that is safe, fast and
effective in dealing with unwanted hair. No more messy hair removal with razors and wax!

The Gentle Laser Hair Removal treatment from Candela is able to penetrate the hair follicle with
light energy, destroying it at its root while preserving the surrounding skin:

• Smoother skin, free of unwanted hair
• Effective
• Ultra Fast

How does Gentle Hair Removal treatments work ?

The laser creates a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue whereit delivers
a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat. Candela’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device™
(DCD™) technology protects the upper layers of your skin with a cooling burst of cryogen. Thus the
laser is able to target the melanin in the hair follicles and remove the hair safely.
 

What areas of the body can be treated?


Laser hair removal is safe enough to be used on all body parts including the face, upper lip, back,
underarms, arms, bikini line and legs.


What must I do before laser hair removal?

  • Avoid waxing and plucking of hairs for 2 weeks
  • Shave the hair short on the day of laser treatment
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure 4 weeks before treatment. This is to avoid damage to the overlying
    skin as the tanned skin will also absorb the laser light
  • For patients with a history of herpes infection, some anti-viral medications may be needed before
    and after the treatment


Are the treatments painful?


While other Laser hair removal gives a prickly or a light rubber-band snapping sensation, the
Candela’s unique . Gentle Hair Removal treatments use a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™
(DCD™), which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of
cryogen in adjustable durations—milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD helps ensure that Gentle
Hair Removal treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.


How long does each treatment take?


An upper lip and chin can be done in 5 minutes. Underarms or bikini lines usually take 10-15 minutes.
Legs and back take longer.


Is the hair removal permanent and how many treatments do I need?


The treated hair will not fall out until 2 weeks later. Mild redness and swelling after the treatment is
expected. These reactions subside within few hours to 1 - 2 days. Hair growth is reduced after each
treatment and the number of treatments required will be based on your hair color and type, body
area and skin tone. The best results are achieved after a series of four to eight treatments at four to
eight week intervals depending on area treated.  The process is most effective when the hair follicle
is in its active growth phase.


What can I expect and how to take care of my skin after laser hair removal?


Patients scheduled for hair removal should avoid plucking, electrolysis or hair waxing for six weeks
prior to treatment. If you have had a history of herpes simplex virus and are scheduled for facial
hair treatment, prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed. .

During or following treatment, a cool compress or gel pack may be applied for comfort. Any redness
or swelling should resolve within a few hours.

After laser treatment, prevent sun exposure by applying sunblock (SPF 30 or above). In the first few
days after treatment, don’t scrub or rinse the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers. Your
practitioner may advise additional precautions.


Are there any possible side effects?


Side effects while few and rarely permanent may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (a laser bruise)  in the treated area—these usually do not
last more than a few days. Skin lightening (hypopigmentation) is rare, but darkening (hyperpigmentation)
may occur, especially in patients with darker skin tones. These skin colour changes will fade with time.
