Get Ready for Summer with Laser Hair Reduction Treatments

We’re so lucky to live in such a beautiful area full of amazing beaches, plenty of sunshine, and warm temps all year long. That gives us the unique opportunity to keep up with that beach bod on a full-time basis. However, nobody wants embarrassing and unattractive hairs to put a damper on their lifestyle. Consistently having to tame the constant growth of unwanted face or body hair is a chore many of us wish to live without. Now is the perfect opportunity to finally do just that with laser hair reduction at Sanctuary Medical Center.

Start Now for Summer Results

Sure, the weather is pretty great here all year long and there’s always an excuse to hit the beach, but nothing compares to summer. That’s why now is the best time to begin a series of sessions to get rid unwanted hair growth. It’s usually recommended that patients undergo anywhere from four to eight treatments to achieve their desired results. Our highly knowledgeable team will take the time to discuss the appropriate approach based on your skin type and size of the area that you’d like to target. A follow-up maintenance treatment may also be necessary as some hair follicles can lay dormant for years before sprouting.

Getting Ready for Treatment

You should avoid plucking, electrolysis, or waxing for several weeks before your treatment session. These all remove hair at the root and don’t give the laser anything to focus on. You should also avoid direct sun exposure. As with any procedure ­– even the quick and non-invasive ones – you should be in good health and strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Hair Removal with the GentleMax Pro™

The GentleMax Pro is a state-of-the-art system that safely and effectively reduces unwanted hair from virtually anywhere on the body. Its dual laser technology utilizes both the Alexandrite and YAG lasers to provide the most effective results available to men and women of all skin types with minimal risk. Brief, intense pulses of the laser are absorbed by the hair follicle and turned into heat. The heat damages the follicle around the bulb and bulge, which prevents further hair growth while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed.

What is Treatment Like with the GentleMax Pro?

Unlike other laser hair removal methods available today, the GentleMax Pro requires no anesthetic cream prior to use. That’s because it comes equipped with a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD), which provides dramatic skin cooling and thus, consistent comfort level throughout the treatment. During treatment, the DCD sprays a cooling cryogen onto the upper layer of the epidermis just milliseconds before and after the laser pulses. This keeps the skin protected from overheating, burns, or pain that can be associated with other devices. Session times always depend on the size of the targeted region, but most smaller areas like the under arms can be treated in minutes.
