Hair Removal

candela_logoIt’s fast and easy using the state-of-the-art Candela series of hair removal lasers! By heating the target hair follicles in the skin, our system causes the long lasting reduction in hair over 3 to 5 treatments spaced at 4 to 6 week intervals.

Unlike other lasers, Candela uses a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) that uses a sophisticated computer to deliver a cooling spray to the skin with each pulse. This system makes the laser treatments very safe, especially with respect to competing systems that do not have it. Candela lasers are solid performers and produce impressive results. Considered the industry standard by which others are compared. The Candela laser series was first runner-up after Palomar of the 2007 Professional’s Choice Award.

laser-treatment_lori1Hair grows in three distinct phases. During anagen, the growth phase, hair is rapidly growing and most vulnerable to the energy from the light source. In catagen, the transition phase, hair is growing more slowly and is not as responsive to light. Lastly, in telogen, hair is in the resting phase and not very susceptible to light. It is for this reason that hair removal treatments are given 3-5 times and spaced out so as to allow hair follicles to transfer into the anagen phase for treatment.

Using our lasers, hair removal can be performed on all skin types from the lightest to the darkest.

During treatment, the laser pulses feel like a bit of heat followed by a cool spray.

Using specific wavelengths of light and in an energy pattern only the Candela lasers can provide, maximum energy is delivered directly to the hair follicle while the skin is protectively cooled.

Before your treatment, avoid waxing or plucking hairs in the area to be treated. Shaving is fine. Avoid tanning for approximately 4 weeks before treatment and notify your doctor or consultant if you have a history of cold sores, take blood thinners or are pregnant.
