Laser hair removal is a popular option for those looking to remove unwanted hair. The treatment is not just for those with excessive hair growth as a result of a medical condition. Laser hair removal is for anybody wanting to save time, money and the hassle of shaving or waxing regularly. We use the Candela Gentle Max Pro for hair removal and we are the Candela Excellence Centre here in the Midlands. The treatment offers pain free, hassle free hair removal with very pleasing results. The technology combines two lasers – Candela Alexandrite laser for lighter skin and the Candela Nd: YAG laser for darker skin, making it the perfect treatment for all skin types.

Typically patients require 6-8 sessions to see the desired results. Occasionally we suggest more sessions depending on the area treated, skin type and hair type, also when medical conditions like PCOS are involved. During your consultation, after the assessment and patch test, the laser specialist will advise the ideal number of sessions and if maintenance is required. This is so the patient has an understanding about the time and money invested for short and long term.

The Candela Gentle Max Pro is one of the most advanced, safe, and effective technology advancements in the laser field, allowing permanent hair reduction on a number of areas, including the arms, face, legs, chest and feet. The laser is also very safe for intimate areas too.

In the past, those with a darker skin type were restricted with hair removal. Luckily, this is now a problem of the past. All skin and hair types can see effective results from our treatment. Even those with medical conditions like PCOS that cause rapid hair growth are suitable for treatment. In fact, we see many patients with this condition and find it gives improved self-confidence and also a long term or permanent alternative. More conventional methods like hair removal cream and waxing only provide temporary relief from hair regrowth.

Our laser specialists first start by offering you a face to face consultation at the clinic. During this medical consultation we will take a full medical history and get to know your treatment goals and concerns. We also offer a patch test to ensure your skin is suitable for treatment. Only when you’re happy, our laser specialist will prepare you for treatment. A couple of days before your treatment we ask you to shave the area being targeted. Unlike other hair removal methods like waxing, we do not require a lot of hair present to carry out treatment.

During treatment, the laser targets the hair follicle with intense laser light energy for thermal destruction to provide permanent hair reduction. For your comfort, we have opted for the laser to contain the most advanced Zimmer Cryo 6 which is installed into the laser from manufacturing. The cooling system cools down the skin before each laser pulse with a cooling burst of cryogen over the treatment area. Whilst the treatment is no painful, you will experience some mild discomfort that has been likened to somebody flicking a hot rubber band at you repeatedly, this is very well tolerated by most of our patients.

Patients require around 6-8 sessions of laser hair removal for best results, as we want to minimise the chances of hair regrowth. After treatment, our laser specialist will provide you with the necessary aftercare information and some suggestions on the best skincare to use.

Depending on your skin type, we will select the correct applicator. The 1064nm Nd:YAG laser is for patients with darker skin. This promotes safe and effective results and limits the risk of hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.

We have selected the Candela GentleMax Pro because of the continued safe and effective results it offers as well as resources that have gone into development of the machine. There are a number of other skin concerns the laser also treats, like benign pigmented lesions, vascular lesions and skin rejuvenation and tightening. The laser leaves nearby skin untouched, only targeting the chosen area.

At Eve Clinics, we are the Midlands Candela Excellence Centre and only use the best Medical Grade Lasers.

Most of the time, yes, laser hair removal is a permanent solution to hair growth. Although there is no guarantee, patients may require maintenance sessions every 2-3 years. In our experience of more than 20 years, we find the areas where hair was very fine is more susceptible to hair regrowth. Also, strong medication or hormonal changes can stimulate the hair growth but patients usually require only maintenance and not full treatments.

It may not always be permanent but definitely it is a long term solution for your hair removal. Also, hair is not likely to come back the same as before, there will be a significantly reduction in the number of the follicles, thickness and colour. If maintenance is requested, one session will be enough to calm down the hair again for a long period of time.

Our practitioners have decades of combined experience in hair removal and aesthetic procedures. We only use medical grade equipment that provides the safest results. Patient safety and care is also at the forefront of everything we do.
