Confident & Carefree
Unwanted hair can be tedious to manage with traditional methods that require constant attention and often leave behind stubble, ingrown hairs, razor bumps, or irritation. Fortunately, advancements in aesthetic techniques now allow patients to achieve smooth, flawless results for a more confident and carefree approach to each moment life has to offer. Laser hair removal allows men and women to safely and quickly eliminate unwanted facial and body hair and enjoy long-term results, so if you’re tired of using at-home hair removal treatments or scheduling waxing sessions, we can help.
Are you looking for a safe, fast, and effective method for hair reduction for all skin types and tones?
At Franklin Skin and Laser in Franklin, TN, we offer treatments with the Candela GentleMax Pro®; the gold standard for hair removal that delivers a versatile and customizable treatment.
Freedom From Unwanted Hair
Traditional hair removal methods, like shaving, waxing, and plucking, all cut, shorten, or remove the actual hair from the follicle for temporary results. After a few days or weeks, the hair grows back, and you have to repeat the treatment process to maintain your results. Laser hair removal treatments are so effective because they work differently. We perform our laser hair removal treatments with the Candela GentleMax Pro® device. This device is the most effective laser system for hair removal and is thus the gold standard for treatments.
This medical-grade laser device features dual wavelengths and adjustable spot sizes so that we can target different skin types, tones, and treatment areas with accuracy and precision. Candela GentleMax Pro® device delivers a quick and comfortable treatment, and within just a few sessions, you can enjoy hair-free skin and long-lasting results.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The laser energy emitted by the device is attracted to pigment. It targets the pigment in the hair follicle, heating the follicle and damaging it so that it stops growing hair. After completing the recommended number of sessions, you will notice a significant reduction in hair growth. This device can help clients achieve their desired results, that being hair-free and smoother skin, without negatively impacting the surrounding skin in any way.
Laser hair removal with the Candela GentleMax Pro offers optimal results with minimal maintenance and no downtime.
Treatments are comfortable, safe for almost every patient, and offer superior convenience and results compared to other methods. In addition to smooth, hair-free skin, laser hair removal offers the added benefit of enhanced collagen production for firmer, more youthful-looking skin in treated areas.
What Areas Can Laser Hair Removal Treat?
The Candela GentleMax Pro® laser device can help clients eliminate unwanted hair from virtually anywhere on the face and body. Some of the most common areas include the arms, legs, back, chest, and face. We can even remove unwanted hair from intimate areas for men and women and perform full-body treatments. You’ll have the option of treating one or multiple areas throughout your treatment plan, and we can customize your treatments as needed.

Who Is A Candidate
For Laser Hair Removal?
Because this device can treat a wide range of skin types and tones, most clients will qualify for treatment. However, laser hair removal requires pigmentation.
The laser light targets pigment, so if there is no pigment in the hair follicle, the treatment will not be effective, and the laser device won’t effectively destroy the follicle. For that reason, certain hair colors may not respond to the treatment process. Our complimentary consultations provide the perfect avenue for you to learn more about laser hair removal and discuss your desired treatment areas. Then we can evaluate your hair and skin color in person to confirm your treatment eligibility and move forward with the process.
Your Personalized Experience
During your consultation, your laser hair removal expert will assess your skin, hair, medical history, and goals to determine if this treatment is right for you.
Based on your unique expectations and desired outcome, we will help you design your personalized treatment plan and provide you with all of the information you need to undergo your treatment with confidence.

Get The Look & Feel You Want.
When you arrive at your office for your appointment, we will welcome you into your private treatment area and promptly get you prepped for treatment. First, your specialist will thoroughly cleanse the targeted area or areas to remove any oils, lotions, or debris that could interfere with your treatment. They will also provide you with protective eyewear to shield your eyes during your procedure. They may also perform a patch test to check your skin’s reaction and determine the appropriate settings for your unique skin type.
Once you are ready, your specialist will use a handheld tool to deliver controlled pulses of laser energy to the desired area. The melanin in the treated hair follicles will absorb the laser energy, permanently damaging the follicles to inhibit future hair growth. At the same time, the Candela GentleMax Pro’s integrated cooling system will help soothe your skin and minimize any discomfort during your procedure.
Your treatment may last anywhere between a few minutes up to an hour, depending on the size of the targeted area. Once the laser application is complete, your specialist will apply a cooling gel or moisturizer to reduce any temporary redness or swelling. It is important to note that a series of treatments is typically required to achieve ideal results. Your treatments will be spaced a few weeks apart to ensure that the targeted follicles are treated during the optimal growth stage.
The total number of treatments you will need to achieve your desired results will depend on many factors, including the number of hair follicles in an active growth phase in the treatment area at your time of treatment as well as the size of the area or the number of areas you want to treat. Once we learn more about the areas you want to treat, we can customize your treatment plan accordingly.
When you come in for your initial consultation, we can give you a better idea of how many sessions you will need to achieve your desired results. We offer seven package sessions as well as complementary touchup treatments for up to two years after completing those sessions. We can give you more information about what your treatment plan may look like and our complimentary touchup sessions at your consultation.
What To Expect
With each treatment you schedule, you’ll notice less hair in the treatment area. You’ll also experience the surprising benefit of laser hair removal: skin rejuvenation. The laser energy can help rejuvenate the skin in the treatment area as it targets and destroys hair within the hair follicles by increasing natural collagen and elastin production.
Your Smoothest Recovery
After undergoing Candela GentleMax Pro laser hair removal treatment, the recovery process is generally swift and comfortable. Patients can expect some mild redness and sensitivity in the treated area, but these symptoms usually subside within a few hours. There might be a sensation similar to a mild sunburn. However, we do not recommend ice packs or aloe vera gel. It's essential to avoid sun exposure for two weeks following the procedure and avoid hot baths/saunas for 24-48 hours post-treatment. Over the next few weeks, the targeted hair will gradually shed, revealing smoother, hair-free skin.
The Candela GentleMax Pro® is known for delivering a comfortable laser hair removal treatment. We will take every step to promote your comfort throughout the treatment, and with that in mind, you can schedule your appointments with confidence, knowing that you won’t have to endure significant discomfort to achieve hair-free skin.
One of the many benefits of the Candela GentleMax Pro® laser system is that it can deliver quick treatments. You can schedule your treatments and get back to your daily activities in less than an hour. Typical treatments can take 30 minutes. Once we learn more about the size and number of areas that you want to treat, we can give you a better idea of how long to plan for your treatment sessions.
