Laser Hair Removal
Pulido Laser Hair Removal Hair removal Lasers have been in use since 1997 and has been approved for "permanent hair reduction" in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Laser hair removal has become extremely popular because of its speed and efficacy, although some of the efficacy is dependent upon the skill and experience of a professional Licensed Medical Electrologist, and the choice and availability of different Laser technology at the clinic which is performing the procedure. The GentleLASE 755 nm alexandrite Laser is Candela's premier hair removal Laser, treating quickly, comfortably and effectively and only Candela Lasers feature the Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD™) to maximize patient safety and comfort.

The Laser, controlled by a professional Licensed Medical Electrologist, targets the hair in its growth stage. As it does this, it destroys the pigment in the hair and stops regrowth. Because Laser works on the pigment, the ideal candidate for the process is someone who has darker hair, and lighter skin. Individuals with blonde, white, gray and most red heads are not good candidates for Laser hair removal since these colors don’t have much or any pigment in them, they do not absorb the light as well.
