GentleLASE Laser Hair Removal in Chandler, AZ

Hair on the face, under the arms, on the legs, and in the bikini area can be annoying. They require constant grooming, which can be tedious and time-consuming. Moreover, hair can reduce your sense of femininity, lowering your self-esteem.

However, the good news is that you can get rid of unwanted hair with GentleLase. Luminescence Aesthetic Medicine in Chandler, AZ explains how the hair removal procedure works. Find out what this popular treatment among residents of the valley is and what results you can expect from it below.

How Does GentleLASE Laser Hair Removal Work?

GentleLase hair removal uses a high-energy alexandrite laser to emit a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin.

This beam of light is then focused onto a follicle, where once absorbed, the energy that the beam consists of is then transformed into heat, which will destroy the hair follicle, leaving the surrounding skin unaffected by the procedure.

GentleLase laser hair removal can also be administered to areas such as the face, underarms, arms, and neck.

In this cosmetic procedure, Luminescence Aesthetic Medicine professionals use a GentleLase system to guide the light beam across your skin in order to target specific.

What Does the Treatment Include?

The GentleLase laser hair removal process depends on your hair growth pattern, skin type, and hair color. Therefore, the process varies from person to person. However, at the very least, you should expect the following things during treatment:

  • Wearing safety eyewear. The GentleLase system emits a concentrated beam of light that can hurt your eyes. For this reason, during the procedure, you must wear special goggles designed to shield your eyes from said beams.
  • Undergoing treatment. During treatment, an aesthetic doctor will use a small handpiece tool which is used to direct the laser light to the areas to be treated. The doctor moves this tool in a sweeping motion over your skin.
  • Mild discomfort. Mild discomfort may occur during GentleLase laser hair removal. People who have undergone the treatment describe it as a slight snapping sensation. The degree of discomfort often varies from person to person.

Preparing for the Treatment

There are several ways to prepare for GentleLase laser treatment. This preparation helps minimize the risk of complications while improving treatment results. Some of the ways to prepare for this cosmetic treatment are:

  • Avoiding sun exposure. Avoid sun exposure for at least 4–6 weeks before treatment. This is because the sun can tan your skin. This increases the risk of laser-related skin damage or discoloration.
  • Avoid some hair removal methods. Refrain from plucking, waxing, or epilation for about 6 weeks before treatment. These methods of hair removal damage the hair follicles, making the laser less effective.
  • Shave before the procedure. You should shave the hair at the treatment site one day before the procedure. Hair can absorb laser energy, which can cause thermal injuries.
  • Clean the skin thoroughly. Before treatment, remove makeup and oils from the area to be treated. If the skin is clean, the laser will penetrate deep into the skin and damage the hair follicles.

What to Expect After a Treatment

After GentleLase laser treatment, you will notice mild swelling and redness at the treatment site. These side effects will subside within a few days. Over the following weeks, expect a gradual reduction in hair growth in the treated area.

Successful treatment results in smoother and hair-free skin. You will require 4-10 GentleLase treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. The laser treatment sessions are spread several weeks apart.

I have been going to Luminescence for approximately three years. Rachel has been my cosmetician since I began. Her facials are absolutely wonderful and I would recommend her most definitely. She is always on time, the room I get the facials in is spotless, and she is a pleasure to talk to.

My name is Sally, I currently use my husbands google account. I have been seeing Rachel for months and she is the absolute best! She is super professional and takes her time with any procedure she does. I have consistently been getting dermplaning facials from her and I am booked for microneedling, which I am very excited to see how the results turn out. I am almost 60 years old and my skin has never felt better!

I’ve been going to this spa for a year now. My girlfriend gave me a treatment for my birthday. I’ve been coming back monthly to see Rachel. She is darling and makes you feel so good. I’ve never been one to have someone touching my face. But this is amazing. I’m currently getting hair removal on my face. I’ll let you know. Everyone needs Rachel in their lives. lol
