Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a modern solution for unwanted body hair. While people turn to razors, tweezers, and hot waxes to achieve smooth skin, lasers offer undeniable advantages like permanent or long-lasting results and no cuts or nicks.


At Defy Nature, the team uses the GentleMax Pro laser by Candela™ to target and disable your hair follicles. The follicles are the tiny sacs within your skin that hold each hair and promote its growth. Once the heat from the laser disables them, they stop growing hair for some time. 


Another advantage of laser hair removal is that you can use it to target any area of hair on your body, no matter how large or small. You can expect an even result even on large areas and in hard-to-reach places. The only area that you shouldn’t use laser hair removal to treat is around your eyes since the laser can damage them. 

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Laser hair removal treatments aren’t nearly as painful as a wax, but they’re not sensation-free either. You’ll feel a hot snap as the laser zaps your follicles, but any discomfort is mild and short-lived. In fact, you won’t need any form of anesthesia to sit through the procedure. The GentleMax Pro is the most pain-free system available. 

How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

You’ll need several initial laser hair removal treatments to see a difference in your body hair since your follicles go through periods of dormancy. With each treatment, the laser destroys more of your follicles as they become active again.


After your first series of treatments, you may need to book maintenance treatments as the follicles recover and your hair begins to grow back. It’s impossible to predict how long your hairlessness will last and if the hair will grow back at all. The results often last for months or even years, and the hair may grow back in a lighter color.* 

What else can lasers do for me?

The GentleMax Pro doesn’t just target body hair: There are a number of treatments you can get at Defy Nature that utilize the same device. Here are a few features you can painlessly alleviate with the laser:


  • Sun spots
  • Sun damage
  • Skin redness
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Wrinkles and fine lines


The GentleMax Pro works for skin tightening, hair removal, and pigment reduction. Talk to your provider about adding laser treatments to your aesthetic makeover.
