How it Works

La Vitalité Med Spa is proud to offer clients the GentleMax Pro® laser, the gold standard for laser hair removal in Toronto.

The GentleMax Pro® laser works by selectively targeting the hair follicle with intense laser light energy for thermal destruction, but without damaging the surrounding tissue. The epidermis is protected by the Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™), which sprays the treatment area before each laser pulse with a liquid cryogen coolant.

This system provides a cooling protection factor over 50% greater than contact or air cooling and can be adjusted to individual needs to make the procedure as comfortable as possible!

What to Expect

  • The duration of each session varies from person to person, but on average they last about 5-40 minutes depending on the size to be treated.
  • Because hair grows in stages, multiple treatments are required. We will recommend an individual treatment plan accordingly based on the thickness and density of hair. The number and timing of these treatments will be determined during your consultation.
  • Laser hair removal treatments are commonly described as similar to having an elastic band snapped against the skin during treatment. It’s a pain free and relaxing procedure. A topical anesthetic is not needed but can be used before treatment if desired.
  • After the treatment, a cool compress, aloe vera or gel pack may be applied. If you do have any redness or swelling after treatment, this should resolve in a couple of minutes or hours.
  • You will be able to resume normal activities after each session, but you may be given specific advice, such as avoiding sun exposure or abrasive skin cleansers on treated skin for a few days.

FAQ

Our trained laser technicians use a smart handpiece to deliver an intense burst of energy onto targeted areas of the skin.

Yes! Many laser hair removal treatments don’t cater to all skin types, but there’s a hair removal treatment that’s right for you, no matter your skin tone.

A treatment can take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the treatment area and the condition being treated. Both legs can often be treated in as few as 15 minutes, as can an average-sized man’s back.

Some patients may feel slight discomfort, which has been compared to snapping a rubber band against the skin. This discomfort resolves quickly and is minimized by our patented Dynamic Cooling Device.

Multiple treatments are required to achieve the full hair removal effect. The hairs on your body are not always at the same stage, so you’ll need to undergo a few treatments, an average of four to six weeks apart, to catch them all in the growth stage.

For about six weeks prior to treatment, you should avoid plucking, electrolysis or waxing. On the day of your treatment, skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed of any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products.

Do not expose the treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light prior to or immediately after treatment.

A cool compress or gel pack may be applied for additional comfort after your treatment. Any redness or swelling should resolve in a few hours.

After your treatment, your skin will be much more prone to sun damage, so be sure to use sunblock with SPF 30 or greater. In the first few days after treatment, don’t scrub or rinse the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers.

While side effects – such as redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering, or purpura (a bruise-like condition) in the treated area – can occur, it is rare for them to be permanent, and will usually go away in a few days.
