Baring it all?
Everyone has it, but not everyone wants it. Laser hair removal makes it easy to go bare and confidently strut your stuff without the stubble. The most popular cosmetic treatment for both men and women, Bare Medical Spa + Laser Center uses the most advanced laser system, the GentleMax Pro Laser by Candela, to remove unwanted hair with little to no discomfort.
Is laser hair removal right for me?
No matter your skin type or tone, laser hair removal is a great option for patients looking to permanently reduce body hair.* Utilizing a combination of light and radiofrequency, laser hair removal thermally destroys the hair follicles to help prevent regrowth.
What can I expect from laser hair removal?
Safe, fast, and effective, patients can expect to experience mild to no discomfort during the short procedure. Candela’s laser hair removal treatments use a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™), which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of cryogen milliseconds before the laser pulse. This technique ensures a comfortable patient experience. Specific time will vary depending on the location of the procedure.
When will I notice my results?
Most patients require 6 to 8 treatments before they reach their desired result.* Hair growth is reduced after each visit.
* Individual results may vary; not a guarantee.
There are 3 phases of hair growth:
Anagen: The growth stage, when a strand of hair is at its strongest
Catagen: The transitional stage, when that strand begins to come loose from the follicle
Telogen: The shedding stage, when the strand falls out and is replaced by a new hair
Gentle Hair Removal is a laser treatment targeting the hair follicle at the root and combines the power you need with speed and comfort you can trust, regardless of your skin type! Gentle Hair Removal is easy on your skin, delivering results with less discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect during laser hair removal treatment?
Treatments take place in your practitioner’s office. Your practitioner will use a small hand piece to deliver an intense but gentle burst of energy onto targeted areas of the skin. Therapeutic heat then safely and effectively removes unwanted hair.
Is Gentle Hair Removal safe for darker skin tones?
Yes! Other laser hair removal treatments don’t cater to all skin types, but there’s a Gentle Hair Removal treatment that’s right for you, no matter what your skin tone. Check out the infographic below to learn what your skin type is, and talk to your practitioner about which Gentle treatment is right for you.
How long does a Gentle laser hair removal treatment take?
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.
Is Gentle laser hair removal painful?
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. Be sure and feel free to consult talk this over with your practitioner.
How many treatments will I need?
Multiple treatments are required to achieve the full hair removal effect. That’s because hair grows in the three stages mentioned above:
- Anagen (the growth stage): Hair is thickest and darkest, so laser treatments are most effective.
- Catagen (the transitional stage): The hair begins to loosen from its follicle.
- Telogen (the shedding stage): The hair falls out to make room for new growth.
The hairs on your body are not always at the same stage, so you’ll need to undergo a few treatments, an average of six weeks apart, to catch them all in the growth stage.
How do I prepare for a Gentle Hair Removal treatment?
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. Apply sunblock (SPF 30 or above) before your treatment.
Do not expose the treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light prior to or immediately after treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, a prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed.
What can I expect 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.
What precautions should I take after treatment?
After your laser treatment, prevent sun exposure by applying sunblock (SPF 30 or above). In the first few days after treatment, don’t scrub or rinse the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers. Your practitioner may advise additional precautions.
Are there side effects?
Permanent side effects are rare and may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (laser bruise) in the treated area—these usually do not last more than a few days. Your practitioner will have more information about potential side effects.
Are these treatments covered by insurance?
Most insurance companies do not offer reimbursement for cosmetic procedures. Consult your insurance carrier for conclusive information.
