Laser hair removal is the use of laser energy to produce long-term hair reduction.
This is accomplished by producing heat in the hair, which is transferred to the hair follicle, which in turn produces inflammation, and this inflammation sends a signal to the hair follicle to go into the resting (telogen) phase.
This laser continues to hold great promise to a wide segment of the population with its multiple wavelength design, treatment versatility and ability to optimally treat all skin types.
By developing the GentleMax, Candela Corporation of Wayland, MA, has integrated two of aesthetic laser medicine’s leading devices – GentleLASE and GentleYAG, into a configurable, upgradeable workstation.
“GentleLASE and GentleYAG are among the most used lasers in my practice – fast, effective and reliable. Having them in a single machine seems to me like a no-brainer – the total hair removal solution in one box.”
commented Dr. Eric Bernstein, Associate Professor of Dermatology at the University of Pennsylvania and Director of the Centers for Cosmetic Laser Surgery.
The GentleLASE is considered by many physicians as one of the leading hair removal lasers on the market today.
“I’ve used almost all the other lasers, and I still think it’s the best one out there for hair removal” said Dr. Brian Zelickson, Medical Director of Zel Skin and Laser Specialists.
Laser technology has developed dramatically over the last 10 years. Even as recently as the mid-90s, people interested in improving their skin or removing unwanted hair were limited in their choices.
As science has expanded our understanding of heat and light, the power of lasers to treat a variety of cosmetic and medical needs has grown dramatically.
From Lasik to laser hair removal, port-wine stain treatment or even tattoo removal, patients around the world are seeing their problems disappear under a tiny beam of light.
Candela is one of the world’s leading developers of new cutting-edge technologies for cosmetic laser and light-based treatments.
Since 1970, Candela has pioneered the innovative clinical solutions that enable physicians, surgeons and personal care practitioners to better meet the needs of their patients.
With offices throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia, Candela is pleased to offer cosmetic laser solutions to patients and physicians worldwide.
