Laser Hair Removal

Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking, waxing and depilatory creams provide only temporary relief. Until now, the only recognized way to remove hair permanently has been by electrolysis – which can be tedious, time consuming and uncomfortable. Also other hair removal lasers could not always be used effectively on well-tanned or darker skin types.


At Caribbean Dermatology & Laser Centre we use the Candela GentleMax Pro system which uniquely removes dark unwanted body hair on all skin types without damaging the delicate structures of the skin. Although, to date there are no lasers available to remove grey hair (unless the root of the hair is still dark) or blonde hair. Electrolysis can still be used to treat the grey hair that is left after the laser treatments.

Candela GentleMax Pro Laser uniquely provides laser hair removal for everyone. The GentleMax Pro can eliminate the need for shaving, plucking, or waxing. Lasers have been used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures including treatment of facial and leg veins, age spots and rejuvenating the skin on the face. The Candela GentleMax Pro, a revolutionary long-pulse high-energy ND: YAG laser emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle by targeting the melanin where it is absorbed. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle disabling the hair from further growth while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The skin is further protected during treatment by a built-in patented cooling system (Dynamic Cooling Device, or DCD) which cools the skin surface and upper layers with every pulse of the laser light. This increases the comfort level of the procedure and protects the skin surface and upper layers while effectively treating the unwanted hair. These treatments leave your skin looking and feeling smoother and silkier.


Unwanted hair is a significant problem for both male and female. Before starting laser treatments, many men have found that getting rid of unwanted hair can be a painful nightmare, especially waxing large areas like the chest or shaving over those areas that have a lot of ingrown hairs (pseudofolliculitis barbae) present.


Some of the the more common areas of unwanted hair for which persons seek hair removal, and which can readily be treated by the GentleMax Pro laser include, but are not limited to the following areas:


  • Lips (Upper & Lower)

  • Facial Hair

  • In-grown Hair

  • Chin & Neck

  • Sideburns

  • Chest

  • Back

  • Under Arms

  • Bikini Area

  • Legs (Thighs and/or Lower Legs)

  • Arms (Upper/Lower)

  • Abdomen


Because of the laser’s speed and large spot size, compared to electrolysis in which each hair follicle has to be entered by an instrument individually, large areas can be treated with the laser in one treatment session.
