Frequently Asked Questions
What does the GentleLase Pro treatment feel like?
Laser energy, which is delivered via a small, hand-held device, is absorbed by the skin and converted to heat. Your skin may be pink immediately following the procedure and typically lasts from a few minutes to several hours after the procedure.
Are the treatments painful?
The GentleLase Pro treatment offers minimal discomfort and down time. It uses DCD technology, to prepare the skin by spraying the upper layers with a cooling burst of cryogen milliseconds before and after the laser pulse, making treatments as comfortable as they are effective.
What precautions should I take to prepare for this process?
Avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks before treatment. Do not bleach, pluck, or wax for 4 to 6 weeks before and after the treatment. Shaving is an acceptable way to manage unwanted hair during this time.
Are there risks or side effects?
Laser and light-based treatments have been safely used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures. And while all treatment results are individual, most procedures have a low risk of adverse side effects. In rare cases, some patients experience pigment changes that generally vanish over time.
