Laser hair removal is a popular treatment for targeting unwanted body hair. It can be used in different areas as needed, such as the bikini line, underarms, back, legs, and chin.
A handheld device emits a steady laser pulse, which delivers carefully controlled heat directly into the skin. This is absorbed by the pigment in targeted hairs, and the heat destroys the hair follicles to prohibit further growth.
Using a laser hair removal system to get rid of unwanted hair is a completely different process from more traditional methods, such as plucking, shaving, and waxing.
There are various systems available, and Astra Medicare uses the Candela GentleMax Pro. This innovative device utilizes cutting-edge technology to remove hair in a fast, convenient way.
But laser hair removal offers more benefits than remarkably smooth skin, and some may surprise you. In this post, we’ll look at seven unexpected benefits to consider, but first, let’s explore how the treatment works.
How does the GentleMax Pro laser hair removal system work?
The GentleMax Pro laser hair removal system has two wavelength options to treat patients with different skin types: 755 nm and 1064 nm. It can also be used for more varied applications, such as treating rosacea, beard bumps, facial veins, spider veins, pigmented lesions, and more.
The system delivers a gentle energy pulse and therapeutic heat deep into the root of a hair follicle to destroy it without damaging the surrounding skin. One of the most innovative aspects of the GentleMax Pro laser system is the Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD). This releases soothing bursts of liquid cryogen over treated skin to make the treatment comfortable.
The GentleMax Pro system is fast, effective, and achieves permanent hair-growth reduction over a series of treatments. If you’re frustrated by visible hair on your underarms, back, or other areas, the GentleMax Pro laser hair removal system is a reliable option.
Once the GentleMax Pro system removes unwanted hair in treatment areas, your skin will look and feel smooth.
What are the unexpected benefits of laser hair removal?
Using a laser system to remove unwanted body hair brings a number of benefits that you might find surprising.
Save time on your beauty routine
Shaving your underarms, plucking hairs with tweezers, or visiting a salon to have your bikini line waxed can all take more time out of your day than you would like. That can be incredibly frustrating when you have a busy schedule, as there are other things you could be doing with the time you spend removing unwanted hair.
Fortunately, laser hair removal offers a more convenient and effective solution, and it will take up less time than shaving your underarms and legs every other day.
Help prevent ingrown hairs
Ingrown hairs are a common side effect of shaving, waxing, and tweezing. A hair that has been removed begins to grow again but curves back into the skin rather than outwards.
Ingrown hairs can manifest as small, potentially painful bumps. They can be effectively treated, but if you’ve experienced ingrown hairs before, you know it’s best to try to prevent them altogether.
An unexpected benefit of laser hair removal is that it can stop ingrown hairs from developing on the skin, unlike more traditional methods. That’s because the laser penetrates deeply into the root of targeted hairs and destroys the follicles.
Reduce body odor
Body odor issues can be difficult to deal with. They may cause problems with self-confidence and affect how you interact with others.
However, one of the most surprising benefits of laser hair removal is that it may help improve body odor.
Why? It’s simple: reducing hair growth in the underarms, and in other areas prone to odors, helps to release sweat that may be trapped. It also means that there should be fewer hairs for sweat to cling to in the future.
Treatment can be tailored to you
If you have spent years shaving unwanted body hair or having your bikini line waxed, you know that there are various razors and waxing products on the market. That offers you some flexibility, but laser hair removal treatments with the GentleMax Pro system go far beyond that.
Your treatment can be tailored to suit your unique needs, as the system allows the operator to adjust the process and deliver a customized procedure. You will have a chance to discuss your unwanted body hair, your goals, and all other important details during your consultation with your treatment provider. They will use this insight to tailor the laser hair removal procedure to your requirements.
Avoid irritating razor burn
Razor burn is a common side effect of shaving, and can leave skin irritated and uncomfortable. It can affect any area that has been shaved, including the underarms, legs, and bikini line. The main causes are shaving too fast, using a blade that is too dull, and shaving without cream or gel to lubricate the skin.
However, while laser hair removal can cause some side effects, the GentleMax Pro system is designed to be kinder to skin and helps soothe it with the Dynamic Cooling Device.
Results last longer than you might expect
The results of laser hair removal last considerably more time than shaving, plucking, and waxing.
The GentleMax Pro laser hair removal system can achieve a 29% reduction in hair growth after the first session and up to a 95% reduction after 4 to 5 sessions. Treatments will be scheduled between four and six weeks apart.
You may enjoy the results for years before you need further treatments, though the duration of results can vary from one person to another.
No waste to worry about
Another unexpected benefit of laser hair removal is that you’ll generate less waste than if you used disposable razors or waxing kits.
