Laser hair removal (LHR) permanently reduces hair growth so that you can enjoy lasting smoothness that would otherwise only come from daily shaving or regular waxing appointments. At Aspire Medispa, Dr. Chin and his staff use the GentleLase Pro-U™ to treat areas of unwanted hair. The GentleLase Pro-U™ penetrates the hair follicle using pulsed laser energy to destroy it at its root, resulting in the permanent reduction or removal of hair.

Addressing Your Concerns
The cost of your laser hair removal with the GentleLase Pro-U™ will depend on the size of the treatment area(s). The staff at Aspire Medispa will provide you with an accurate cost estimate during your consultation.
Laser hair removal is not surgical and, though the device is energy-based, scarring has minimal risks. Skin may initially be red following the treatment; however, this will fade over the following hours and days. Dark-skinned individuals may not be suitable for LHR since there is a chance of changing the pigmentation in the skin darker or lighter. Your skin type will need to be evaluated for treatment.
You may experience mild tingling and warmth during treatment. The GentleLase Pro-U™ uses a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) to ease any discomfort. This device sprays the upper layers of the skin with a burst of cryogen to cool the skin before and after the laser pulse.
Your skin may appear pink or red following the procedure. This discoloration can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. In the days following your laser hair removal, be sure to avoid the sun as much as you can and wear plenty of sunscreen. Laser hair removal with the GentleLase Pro-U™ requires no downtime, and you can return to your usual routine immediately following the treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is this treatment permanent?Laser hair removal destroys the hair follicle at the source for long-lasting results. Any remaining hair will be slower-growing, thinner, and less visible.
Are there possible side effects with laser hair removal?The GentleLase Pro-U™ comes with a very low risk of side effects. In the rarest of situations, patients may experience temporary pigment changes.
Will I need repeated treatments?Yes. The average patient requires three to six treatment sessions with the GentleLase Pro-U™. These sessions are typically spaced four to eight weeks apart. The exact number of sessions required will depend on the size and location of the treatment area and will be determined by Aspire Medispa staff during your consultation.
What is the length of the treatment?Treatment time with the GentleLase Pro-U™ varies depending on the size and number of treatment areas. In most cases, laser hair removal treatments are finished in under an hour.
How do I prepare for laser hair removal?We recommend that you do not wax or pluck the treatment area for two to four weeks before treatment. Shaving is fine because the skin is preserved. You should also avoid direct sun exposure in the days leading up to your treatment.
