Is Pain Free Laser Hair Removal Possible?
For many women, the summer sun means a season of continual hair removal, with constant waxing or shaving to ensure fuzz-free limbs. In fact, in a recent survey by market analysis company Mintel, 73% of women felt under pressure to remove body hair and only 8% had not de-fuzzed in the past year!
Mintel’s survey also shed light on the top areas for hair removal for women, with legs coming out on top at 82%, followed by underarms and bikini line. Even our upper limbs can be a source of concern with 15% of women wanting hair free arms. Experts report that men are increasingly opting for the same grooming rights as women – including hair removal for smooth body skin.
The draw backs of waxing and shaving are well-known. With razor bumps from ingrown hairs and the constant cycle of hair regrowth to contend with, more and more men and women are turning to permanent laser hair reduction. However, one concern that often holds people back is how painful it is likely to be.
At The Midas Touch we use The Candela GentleMax Pro system which has a built in patented Dynamic Cooling DeviceTM (DCDTM). This 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. This Candela GentleMax Pro system is the gold standard for laser hair removal and it is recognised the world over for its high performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficacy, ease-of-use, outstanding performance, safety and patient satisfaction. Its large spot delivery system makes the GentleMax Pro the fastest dual wavelength hair removal laser in the market.
So if you’ve been putting off laser hair removal for fear of the pain, then it’s definitely time to reconsider!
