In the battle of unwanted hair there’s no greater weapon than GentleLASE but with such power comes great responsibility and that’s where the therapists at Face of Man have you covered.
So you’ve shaved, waxed, even plucked but there’s a hair battle brewing you just can’t win, and one that over the summer months you just can’t hide. However, if you want a job done properly you’ve got to call in the bug guns and that means it’s time to laser.
The Gold Standard for Laser Hair Removal in all skin types, the GentleLASE is a dual wavelength laser platform that combines the fastest and most powerful 755 nm Alexandrite laser with an equally powerful 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser plus Dynamic Cooling Device.
The laser’s target is the pigment in the hair follicle. Absorbing the heat it destroys the cells lining the hair follicle around the bulb, bulge, and vascular supply and is repeated over the course of several weeks to catch all hairs in the Anagen, or growth, phase of the hair cycle.
Serious tech yes, but what that means for you is high performance in terms of speed, efficacy, performance, safety and satisfaction. In addition, you can be guaranteed that every therapist at Face of Man holds laser certifications to ensure you get the very best results every time.
While it’s not quite the light sabre you may be imagining the GentleLASE laser pulse is administered via a handheld device. Both you and your therapist will wear protective eyewear and you can expect to feel a light spray of coolant on your skin before each laser pulse, covering a 18mm (20c coin) area per laser shot per second.
With all this in mind, hair is to be short for your laser treatment, about 2-3 days hair growth (3mm max. Shave or trim the hair before your treatment or allow us to look after that for you as shorter hair allows the laser to travel down to the follicle faster.
Firstly, at Face of Man, we’ve chosen Candela. Not only the most trusted name in the industry, the Candela GentleLASE laser delivers results that continue to recommend clients to us. Secondly, we’re true masters of laser. All Face of Man therapists hold laser certifications so you can be sure we know how to handle this incredible technology while making you feel comfortable every step of the way. And while laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment our job is to help minimise the risks and ensure you’re delivered the very best in service, experience and results that you just won’t get anywhere else.
Hair does not grow uniformly so we recommend at least six to eight treatments, six weeks apart for a significant reduction of up to 75 percent, however, results of up to 80 percent hair loss may require up to 10-12 treatments and we suggest a maintenance treatment every four months.
GentleLASE is not only a high efficacy laser hair removal device, where results are both safe and permanent, but can also be used to treat beard bumps, facial and spider veins, leg veins, and pigmented lesions. It is, however, important to avoid sun exposure on the area for 2-3 weeks before treatment – making the Autumn/Winter seasons the perfect time to commit to laser hair removal.
