Unwanted hair can be uncomfortable and even embarrassing. You can remove unwanted hair with various over-the-counter, quick-fix hair removal systems, but they are only temporary and typically require additional maintenance efforts. As close to forever as you can get, laser hair removal treatments at AYA™ Medical Spa can provide you with a 92% hair reduction and a razor-free lifestyle*.
Laser hair removal can be performed in almost any area where you have unwanted hair. Most people receive laser hair removal on their face, legs, arms, back, underarms, chest, or bikini area. Due to the staggered nature of the hair growth cycle, in which some hairs are actively growing while others are dormant, laser hair removal requires multiple treatments to catch each hair as it enters the “active” growing phase.
Laser hair removal is safe for all skin types and requires little to no recovery time. In rare cases, some patients have reported temporary itching, redness, and minor swelling in the treatment area. Patients often report the treatment itself feeling like a short, pinching or snapping sensation. Although very unusual, scabbing, infection, hyperpigmentation, or hypopigmentation can occur if proper treatment is not performed. Receiving laser hair removal treatments from a well-trained, licensed esthetician can reduce the chance of such side effects as they will test each individual’s skin type and use the appropriate laser and setting.

The GentleMAX™ laser is said to be Candela’s most versatile laser: removing everything from unwanted hair, leg and facial veins, fine lines and wrinkles, vascular and pigmented lesions, and even improving skin laxity. The GentleMAX™ laser covers a larger surface than most (18mm), providing faster treatment. Thanks to the dual wavelength capabilities, the GentleMAX™ laser can safely treat dark skin tones.
