Laser Hair Removal Prices Drop Due To Faster, More Advanced Systems. Raleigh Medical Spa and Plastic Surgery Center uses the GentlelLase Plus for fast, effective laser hair removal treatments. New FDA approved hair removal lasers are better at providing permanent Hair Removal. Raleigh Medical Spa and Plastic Surgery Center Blue Water Spa uses the GentlelLase Plus for fast, effective laser hair removal treatments.
In the early days of cosmetic lasers, lasers for hair removal were very painful, extremely slow and effective only in fair skinned individuals with very dark hair. Newer lasers are safer, more comfortable and more effective for a variety of skin types. Until recently, however, lasers for hair removal were excruciatingly slow. What has changed laser hair removal forever is the Candela GentleLase Plus.
Prior to the introduction of Candela's GentleLASE Plus, a laser treatment of a man's back would take at least an hour, and sometimes as long as three hours. Treatment of legs for a woman would typically take upwards of two hours. Today, using the GentleLase Plus, the treatment of a man's back can be completed in less than 15 minutes and most women can have full legs treated in less than 20 minutes. Because many laser centers and physicians offices charge by the hour or by the pulse of the laser, this also means a significant savings to the consumer.
Another reason some individuals have been less than enthusiastic about laser hair removal is because of the pain associated with the procedure. Older generation laser hair removal systems using topical gels or other forms of cooling simply do not provide enough consistent cooling of the skin to make the treatments tolerable. The pain, coupled with a slow treatment is just too much for some people to endure. With the introduction of a DCD, dynamic cooling device, treatments are much more comfortable than in the past.
At Blue Water Spa, the results have far surpassed everyone's expectations. "We started by treating staff members and patients who have experienced laser hair removal previously with little to moderate success. These patients could not believe how fast and comfortable the treatments were. They are also delighted with the price." says spa President Kile Law. Most importantly of course, is the efficacy of the system. The Candela GentleLASE Plus has effectively treated very fine dark hair that has been resistant to laser treatment in the past. The laser has also successfully treated lighter hair. "We know that the system has limitations and that it is not for everyone, says Dr. Law. We don't treat fine blond or grey hair but most patients can experience satisfying results.
When considering a hair removal laser treatment, consumers should ask the following questions:
1) Is this laser FDA approved for hair removal on my skin type and hair color?
2) What is the spot size of the laser? In order for a laser to perform quickly and most effectively, it should have an 18mm spot size
3) Is the laser equipped with a dynamic cooling device (DCD)? This is the safest and most consistent method of cooling the skin. It ensures patient safety and comfort.
4) Is there a board-certified physician on site? A facility without appropriate medical supervision may not be the safest environment for a laser procedure.
5) Are treatments sold in a package or one at a time? Businesses that want your money up front may not have the confidence that their laser will perform effectively. A client should be able to pay for treatments as needed without paying all at once.
6) Are complimentary consultations and spot tests available? You should be able to meet the technician and experience a pulse or two before commiting to a treatment.
