Candela Gentle Max for Facial Hair Removal

 facial hair removal is best performed with the use of Candela Gentle Max. This is safe for all skin types. Many salons, dermal clinics, and spas are offering IPL for facial hair removal. But the use of IPL poses a lot of threats. It is far more painful, requires multiple treatment sessions, can lead to a number of side effects and is far less effective!

How Facial Hair Removal Works

Facial hair removal is done by using a laser to remove unwanted hair permanently. It works by targeting and damaging the root of the hair. The laser that is used in facial hair removal is attracted to pigment or color. Thus, the laser would target the hair rather than damaging the skin. Since there is a good contrast between the skin and the hair, the laser only targets the root of the hair strand leaving only a little stem.

After a few weeks or so, your skin will naturally push out this stem. It would likely appear that new hair is growing, while the reality is your skin is just pushing out the left-behind stem of the laser treatment. All of these will then easily come out or fall out.

Since the cycle of hair growth ranges from approximately 4 to 6 weeks for the face, you would be coming in for your next facial hair removal treatment by then. With multiple treatments, you will notice that you will have less and less facial hair every time.


Facial Laser Hair Efficacy

facial hair removal offers a more than 30 percent reduction in hair growth with each treatment. For the best results, we recommend having facial hair removal treatments repeated every 4-8 weeks.

Causes of Excessive Hair Growth

Excessive hair growth is a medical condition in both men and women that are classified as either hypertrichosis or hirsutism. 

Hypertrichosis is characterized by the presence of excess hair in a normal and sometimes in an abnormal pattern. There are a few factors that cause abnormal facial hair growth. These could be genetics, malnutrition, tumours, or due to medications, hormones, or metabolic problems.

On the other hand, Hirsutism is the abnormal presence of excessive hair in women that is characterized by male pattern hair growth. This can be in such a form as a beard or mustache. The common causes of hirsutism are hormonal problems, medications, tumors, or heredity.
