Laser Hair Removal
How can I get rid of unwanted facial and body hair?
Tweezing, shaving, waxing, and other repeatable methods of hair removal take your valuable time and add up in expenses over the years.
At Sanctuary Medical Center, the highly trained aestheticians recommend permanent hair removal with the GentleMax Pro laser. The GentleMax Pro can eliminate hair on your:
- Upper lip
- Beard area
- Arms and armpits
- Bikini line
You can treat multiple areas in a single session.
How does laser hair removal work?
The laser’s energy bypasses your skin and goes straight to the shaft of your unwanted hair. The laser dislodges the hair — which falls out either immediately or over the next two weeks — and disrupts the integrity of the follicle that houses it. After laser treatment, the follicle can no longer produce hair.
How many hair-removal sessions do I need?
The laser energy targets hair that’s in an early growth phase. Because your many thousands of hairs grow at different rates and are in different stages during your laser therapy, you may need a series of up to six treatments to reach all of them.
How much hair is permanently removed?
After a series of treatments, up to 80% of your hair is permanently removed with the GentleMax Pro. Your aesthetic professional may recommend biannual touch-ups to keep your face and body hair-free.
What if I have sensitive, very fair, or very dark skin?
The GentleMax Pro is safe for all skin types and tones. Your Sanctuary Medical Center expert adjusts the laser’s settings based on the pigmentation in your skin and hair. The 755 nm setting is optimal for fair to medium skin, while the 1064 nm setting safely removes hair on dark skin.>
Does laser hair removal hurt?
The GentleMax Pro laser feels warm and sometimes prickly when it targets your unwanted hair. The Sanctuary Medical Center team keeps you comfortable with a topical anesthetic gel, if necessary.
