The Gold Standard in Laser Hair Removal

Candela Gentlelase is the Gold Standard in laser hair removal because it is more comfortable & requires 30-50% less treatments than competitor lasers.1

Laser hair removal is by far the best solution for you to reduce your unwanted hair - anywhere on the body. The treatment provides fast, effective and long lasting results, which in turn gives you the confidence to show off those areas of the body that have been hidden away for too long time - perhaps you can enjoy a new bikini or a mini skirt.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair treatments specifically target the hair follicle leaving the surrounding area of the skin completely undamaged.  A beam of light reaches the hair follicle and the laser energy is then converted into heat destroying the follicle and blood supply preventing the hair from regrowing. The focused energy makes them faster and safer than IPL treatments.

The duration of the treatment is dependent on the area being treated starting at 5 mins for upper lip going up to 1 hour for full legs.  Our Candela GentleLase hair removal requires about 6 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Which is about half the number of sessions of other lasers and IPL machines.

Skin colour, hair colour and hair type need to be assessed before you can start a course.  This is done during an your initial consultation and patch test which costs £25 and takes 30 mins.  Unfortunately for sun-worshippers - laser hair procedures are strictly forbidden when you have a tan.  However, this is a perfect time of the year to consider treatment areas such underarm and bikini.

Why choose Face & Body?

When comparing lasers and IPL machines our Candela Gentlelase is the Gold Standard, because it is a medical grade laser that penetrates deeper to the root of the hair and it has a unique cooling spray which imrproves patient comfort.
This means you will require fewer treatments and suffer less discomfort when compared to competitors.  You can also have your treatment safe in the knowledge that all our laser practitioners have specific laser qualifications, knowledge and experience to minimize any risks associated with this treatment.
