A specialist will use an Candela Gentlelase Alexandrite Laser to destroy unwanted hair at the root, resulting in long-term hair removal. Treatment may be completed in a single session and is generally more effective on light complected individuals with darker hair. Unfortunately, it is ineffective on gray and blond hair.

With pigmented lesions, commonly freckles, liver spots, brown age spots and brown birthmarks, the laser will be used to target the abnormally high concentrations of melanin in the lesion. Treatment may be completed in as little as one session.

For spider veins, a specialist will target the affected veins with the laser. Laser technology has consistently delivered promising results in spider vein removal. One to two sessions are generally sufficient for effective treatment.
