Although laser hair removal has been around for many years, recent advancements in technology have made it more accessible and less painful. Many different types of lasers are used for hair removal. Some are very effective, while others are barely felt. The Candela GentleMax is both.

At Bryn Mawr Facial Aesthetics Center in Philadelphia, PA, Dr. John Lee uses the state-of-the-art Candela GentleMax Hair removal system to quickly and permanently remove unwanted hair from nearly any part of your body. Best of all, the Candela GentleMax uses a cooling solution to numb the skin right before the laser destroys the hair follicles.

Although the Candela GentleMax is highly effective at removing hair permanently, it may take several sessions to see the full results. Your skin tone, the color of the hair, and the size of the treatment area may affect just how many sessions will be needed to permanently remove the unwanted hair. Generally, this takes between 2 and 6 sessions.

With a minimal recovery time, if any, you can return to your normal life immediately after each treatment session. Most patients describe their skin as red for a few hours after the treatment. And post-treatment pain is very rare. With each treatment session, you will notice less and less unwanted hair. At the end of your treatment series, you will be able to enjoy smooth and hairless skin without needing to spend time and money shaving and waxing. This hairless skin is permanent without any frequent pain.

Regardless of where on your body unwanted hair is or the size of the area you want to have treated, Dr. John Lee and his team will create a treatment plan specific to you, and remove the unwanted hair forever.
