Most areas require 6 treatments. When removing hair, it should be noted that GentleMaxPro Laser treatments work by disabling the hair in its active growth phase. Since some hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments are often necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.

Immediately following your GentleMax Pro Laser treatment, the area may appear slightly red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment, hair begins to shed as a result of your treatment. This may look like re-growth of hair, but is actually and exfoliation process.
Do not wax, pluck, or bleach your hair at anytime while receiving laser treatments. Shaving is permissible.
