LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Candela Gentlemax Pro laser hair removal permanently reduces hair growth by up to 90%...
The technology we use is the most effective and advanced system for permanent hair reduction in the world.
The Candela combines the 755NM Alexandrite and 1064NM NG:YAG laser, which are the two leading lasers for hair removal around the globe.
The advanced cooling system protects the skin whilst ensuring maximum comfort.
CANDELA GENTLEMAX PRO LASER
This is the leading laser in the world for laser hair removal. It offers both the Alexandrite and ND:YAG laser systems.
Alexandrite Laser –Because of its high rate of melanin absorption, it is also referred to as the "Gold Standard" in laser hair removal. This laser is used on skin types 1-3 (Very fair skin to Olive Mediterranean skin).
ND:YAG Laser – This laser is the safest option for darker skin types due to its haemoglobin absorption rather than melanin. This laser is used on skin types 4-6 (Asian skin to Dark African American skin)
Therefore our technology is safe and effective for ALL skin types.
