What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is an effective method of removing unwanted body hair. It uses powerful lasers that can target the follicles without burning skin or damaging surrounding tissues.

At Luminesse Skin and Laser Clinic, we offer the Gentlemax Pro laser system specially designed for all skin tones. It works by using two types of wavelength light called Alexandrite and Nd:YAG with an output power level that can be adjusted to specific requirements depending on your desired outcome.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a non-surgical way to get rid of unwanted body hair, but there are some tips that you should follow before your laser hair removal session. You can prepare for laser hair removal by:

  • Staying out of the sunlight
  • Avoiding blood-thinning medications 
  • Avoiding any form of tanning before your procedure
  • Shaving the treatment area 24 hours before the procedure
  • Staying away from plucking and waxing before your session

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is an effective way of getting rid of unwanted hair. However, it has other advantages such as:

  • It helps you avoid ingrown hairs
  • It is a time-saving procedure because you don’t have to spend several minutes shaving your hair daily
  • It is a scarless procedure
  • It gives you long-lasting results

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is an excellent option for those looking to remove unwanted body and facial hair. However, laser hair removal is not recommended for people with keloid scars.
