Candela Laser Hair Removal

Let’s be honest. Shaving, waxing, bleaching, and tweezing are tedious and time-consuming. If you’re in search of a quick, efficient way to remove unwanted hair from your face and body, you can’t go wrong with laser hair removal.

Here at DVida Spa, we are pleased to offer Candela laser hair removal to men and women in Chicago and the surrounding areas. Let’s dive deeper into what laser hair removal is and how it works.

What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal

During the treatment, one of our expert providers will use the Candela laser to deliver a laser pulse into the targeted area. Once they do, a controlled amount of heat will safely and effectively damage your hair follicles.

Rather than simply treating the surface like you do when you shave or wax, the Candela laser can stop treated hair follicles from growing new hair for quite some time. Unlike many other lasers on the market, the Candela laser is safe and effective for all skin tones and allows for beautiful, long-lasting results.

The length of your treatment will depend on the size of the area(s) you’d like to target as well as the amount of hair present. Typically, however, a treatment takes anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes. In most cases, 4 to 7 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart from one another are necessary to achieve desired results.

Since there is no downtime associated with Candela laser hair removal, you are welcome to resume work and your daily responsibilities right away.

Good Candidates for Laser Hair Removal

Candela laser hair removal is a great option if you’re a man or woman who is bothered by unwanted hair on your face, underarms, legs, arms, shoulders, abs, and bikini line. If you’re pregnant, living with diabetes, or have a history of keloids or skin cancer, we do not recommend this treatment.

Additionally, if your unwanted hair growth is the result of high testosterone levels, we encourage you to work with your doctor to get your hormones under control before you undergo laser hair removal. This is because your body will continue to produce new hair regardless of how much your hair follicles are destroyed.
