Laser Hair Removal from MC Laser Clinic & Salon
Getting rid of unwanted body hair can be a challenge. Many hair removal treatments are painful, or irritating to the skin, or they don’t provide the long term result you need. The Candela GentleMax Pro laser hair removal treatment is a fast, simple and relatively pain-free solution for the long term removal of unwanted body hair. GentleMax Pro laser hair removal is the easiest and most comfortable hair removal treatment available today, and it works on every type of hair!
At MC Laser Clinic & Salon, our priority is to provide our clients with the highest quality hair removal services available. It’s our commitment to quality that makes us the most trusted laser hair removal clinic in Ottawa and the surrounding area. Here is some more information about the unique and innovative GentleMax Pro Hair Removal treatment.
What is Gentle Max Pro Hair Removal?
Gentle-Laser Hair Removal is the laser hair removal treatment that’s safe and effective for all skin types! It’s powerful enough to deliver great results, and with the patented Dynamic Cooling Device and fast treatment times, it’s the most comfortable laser hair removal available.
Candela GentleMax Pro Hair Removal is the Gold Standard for Laser Hair Removal in all Fitzpatrick skin types. It is a dual wavelength laser platform that combines the fastest and most powerful 755 nm Alexandrite laser with an equally powerful 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser for high performance treatment capabilities in terms of efficacy, performance, safety and patient satisfaction.
How Does GentleMax Pro Laser Hair Removal Work?
GentleMax Pro laser hair removal treatment targets the hair follicle at the root with a blast of therapeutic heat. Over the course of a few sessions, this therapeutic heat treatment will result in effective and long-lasting hair removal. Not only is GentleMax Pro the fastest laser hair removal procedure, it’s also the most comfortable—the patented Dynamic Cooling Device delivers cooling blasts of liquid cryogen during the treatment to keep you comfortable and pain-free.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Multiple treatments are required to achieve full hair removal. This is because hair grows in three stages:
This is the hair’s growth stage. Hair is its thickest and darkest at this point so laser treatments are most effective.
This is the transitional stage of hair growth in which hair begins to loosen from its follicle.
This is the shedding stage of hair growth in which hair falls out to make room for new growth.
To be as effective as possible, GentleMax Pro laser hair removal requires multiple treatments to target your hair as every stage of development. The exact amount of treatments depends on your skin and hair type. 80% of patients report permanent hair loss after 4-6 sessions.
The Most Effective Laser Hair Removal for All Skin Types
The Fitzpatrick Scale is used by physicians to identify different skin types that have different needs in terms of laser treatments. Different skin types require different lasers to provide effective hair removal treatments without damaging the skin. GentleMax Pro laser treatments work on all skin types on the Fitzpatrick Scale, so you can get the hair removal service you need regardless of your skin type. Unlike traditional methods of hair removal, such as shaving and waxing, GentleMax Pro laser hair removal will result in permanent results so you can get rid of unwanted body hair once and for all.
What is the aftercare?
After your laser treatment, apply sunblock (SPF 30 or above) to prevent sun damage. Avoid hot tubs and workouts same day of treatment to avoid irritation. Don’t scrub or rinse the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers for the first few days 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. Your practitioner may advise additional precautions depending on your specific skin type or pre-existing sensitivities.

Frequently Asked Questions about Gentle Max Pro Laser Hair Removal
Q What can I expect during laser hair removal treatment?
A Treatments will always 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. The length of a treatment can range from as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the treatment area and the condition being treated.
Q Is Gentle laser hair removal painful?
A Some patients describe a slight discomfort, similar to the feeling of snapping a rubber band against the skin. This discomfort is eased by cooling blasts from the patented Dynamic Cooling Device so you can stay as comfortable as possible during the treatment.
Q How do I prepare for a Gentle Hair Removal treatment?
A Some of the ways you can prepare for a Gentle Hair Removal treatment include:
- Avoiding plucking, electrolysis or waxing six weeks prior to start treatments.
- 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.
- Applying sunblock (SPF 30 or above) before your treatment.
