Men and women remove unwanted hair from your face and body with GentleLase treatments at Face Body & Soul
The laser hair removal process uses a laser to gently remove unwanted hair, putting an end to routine shaving and waxing.
FBS treatments leave your skin looking and feeling smoother and silkier. This patented technology transcends the older, painful hair removal treatments to deliver long lasting results.
The laser’s wide beam treats larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs and face rather than treating one hair at a time.
Best of all, the Candela GentleLase treatments are a safe, fast, gentle and effective alternative method for hair removal.
How does the GentleLase process differ from electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a much slower process. With electrolysis, a needle is actually inserted into each hair follicle, one at a time. Once inserted, an electric shock burns the follicle to retard growth.
This is unique because it is relatively painless and unlike the laser hair removal process.
GentleLase works equally well on most skin pigmentation without removing any of the pigment. It can also safely and effectively eliminate a broad range of hair colours.
With the Face Body & Soul AFT / IPL process, we can gently treat hair in sensitive areas such as the lip or nipples while maintaining a healthy, normal appearance of the surrounding tissue.
How long do GentleLase treatments take?
Treatments can last from a few minutes to a few hours depending on the size of the area being treated. Body & Soul AFT hair removal treatments are relatively painless, yet effective.
After your treatment, the area is cleansed and you can return to your normal activities immediately. Your physician may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribed skin care regime especially formulated for your skin type. The use of sun screen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
How many Laser hair removal treatments will I need?
The number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated, the hair density and your hair’s growth cycle.
Your hair grows in cycles and many factors influence it’s growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair’s location, thickness and resilience.

What is Face Body & Soul AFT treatment like?
First, the area to be treated is cleansed, the hair is shaved, and a cool gel is applied. Through the Face Body & Soul IPL hand piece, gentle pulses of light are emitted and penetrate the skin to begin disabling the hair follicles.
Each pulse may feel like a snap of a rubber band or a slight sting or pinch. After treatment the hair falls out over a period of a week or two.
Are there any possible side effects?
Side effects are rare. Blistering, soft scabbing or redness sometimes occurs at the treatment site, but resolves quickly or within a few days.
In certain cases, the skin could become slightly lighter or darker. You will be notified during your consultation if you are susceptible to these side effects. For 2-4 weeks before and after treatment, you must limit your sun exposure.
This will greatly minimize the risk of complications.
