Frequently Asked Questions -Pigmentation & Laser hair Removal
WHAT IS GENTLELASE?
Gentlelase Pro laser is a medically developed and researched laser system for the reduction of unwanted body hair and pigmentation. It remains the world's most effective laser technology for hair reduction and pigmentation treatment.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The laser light travels through the skin to the base of the hair follicle or pigmented area where it is absorbed by the pigment surrounding the hair and skin forming cells. The laser energy heats the follicle and damages the cells that produce hair. Please refer to Laser pigment treatment page for more information on pigment.
IS LASER PAINFUL?
The Genltelase pro uses cryogen to cool the skin making if far more comfortable than many other lasers. A small amount of heat can be felt in some treatment areas.
WHY DO I NEED A CONSULTATION?
We conduct a consult with every client before the treatment to:
identify the area to be treated and to advise how to prepare the area prior to treatment
determine if the treatment is appropriate for you
fully explain the process and what to expect
