Laser Hair Removal
Tired of dealing with unwanted hair? Ready for smooth and hair-free skin?
Temporary solutions such as shaving, waxing, and plucking can be irritating, inconvenient and require maintenance often. Razor burn, ingrown hairs, skin irritation, and stubble caused by these temporary solutions can seriously get in the way of your every day life.
Laser hair removal at Laser of Arlington is the solution! Using Candela’s FDA approved GentleMax Pro, we are able to provide you with fast, affordable and pain-free treatments resulting in smooth, hair-free and beautiful skin. The GentleMax Pro is safe and effective on all skin types and all areas of the body.
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Laser energy is delivered through a small handpiece operated by one of our nurses. The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the skin and converted to heat. The heat safely and effectively damages the hair follicles by destroying its blood supply. The surrounding skin remains unaffected due to Candela’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™), which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of cryogen in adjustable durations—milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD helps ensure that the treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.

How to Prepare for Treatment
For about six weeks prior to treatment, you should avoid plucking, electrolysis or waxing. On the day of your treatment, skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed of any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products. Apply sunblock (SPF 30 or above) before your treatment. Do not expose the treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light for 7-14 days prior to or 7-14 days immediately after treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, a prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed.
After your laser treatment, prevent sun exposure by applying sunblock (SPF 30 or above). In the first few days after treatment, don’t scrub or rinse the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers. Side effects may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (laser bruise) in the treated area—these usually do not last more than a few days.
Candela's GentleMax Pro
The Candela GentleMax Pro is an innovative and revolutionary new piece of technology that successfully combines two lasers, which has numerous benefits. At Laser of Arlington we can offer this revolutionary laser to our clients at affordable prices.
Who it treats
The real benefit of the revolutionary technology brought to us from the Candela GentleMax Pro is that it can treat virtually everyone, even those with darker skin (where traditional lasers may have struggled).
How it works
When treating hair removal, the technology works by destroying the hair follicles with the light from GentleMax Pro, which then stops them from growing for good. The treatment is not painful as the device contains a cryogenic super-cooling spray. This reduces the risk of getting hyper pigmentation, which you might experience from other machines.
Many clients would agree that the device, using dual laser technology, gets rid of all types of hair on any type of skin tone. This treatment really does deliver results, treating even fine hairs. With the use of the dual laser technology, the GentleMax Pro is able to get to the fine hairs that would normally be missed by traditional hair removal equipment. This means you can effectively remove hair on your face, back, chest, underarms and bikini line.
The machine is safe and FDA approved, having been tested on many different skin and hair types. Delivering fast and effective results, the Candela GentleMax Pro is a great option for anyone wanting hair removal or other skin treatments guaranteed to provoke the “wow” factor!
