Laser Hair Removal
Who enjoys shaving their legs, tweezing their brows, or having their bikini area waxed? Laser hair removal at our Waltham medical spa is one of the most popular treatments we offer because it eliminates the need for shaving, tweezing, or waxing. We use the GentleMax Pro Laser from Candela, which combines the speed and power of the 755 Alexandrite and 1064 ND:Yag lasers to remove unwanted hair on all skin types.
Laser Hair Removal At-a-Glance
- Permanent hair reduction in as little as 6 treatments*
- Effective for all skin types
- Minimal discomfort (similar to a rubber band snapping the skin)
- Treatment times range from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area
- Little to no downtime
*Your results may vary
Laser Hair Removal Science
Laser technology advances during the past 10 to 15 years have made esthetic treatments safer and more effective than ever before. One of the most versatile and fastest laser systems available today is the GentleMax Pro. Its versatility includes having the option of using either of 2 wavelengths that can be precisely targeted on a treatment area for long-term hair reduction.
The GentleMax Pro targets hair follicles with pulses of intense light energy. The pigment in the hair absorbs the light energy and converts it to heat, which damages the follicle, minimizing new hair growth. Because hair grows in different phases, multiple treatments are needed to get the desired results.
Laser hair removal is popular among both women and men. Anyone who wants to significantly minimize hair in a specific area is a good candidate for laser hair removal treatments. What makes GentleMax Pro the preferred choice is that it works for all skin tones. Other lasers work well only for patients with dark hair and light skin. Laser treatments can remove unwanted hair from multiple areas, including:
- Bikini area
In addition to freeing you from the hassle, discomfort, and expense of less effective hair removal techniques, laser hair removal can give you more confidence in your appearance.
We opened ChicMed Laser & Esthetic Center with a vision of providing effective esthetic treatments in a warm, welcoming environment where our clients are the top priority. We look forward to forming lasting relationships with the women and men who trust us with their care.Learn More
What You Can Expect
One of the most common questions we hear from patients considering laser hair removal is whether it’s painful. Most women and men tolerate the procedure well, with minimal discomfort. Imagine the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin, which is how most patients describe the treatment. Depending on the size of the treatment area, the procedure may last a few minutes or up to an hour.
We’ll provide detailed instructions for preparing for your laser hair removal treatment and will answer any questions you have to ensure you feel confident before your treatment.

In the first few hours after your treatment, you may notice some redness and swelling. Applying ice can reduce these minor side effects. It’s important to avoid sun exposure between treatment sessions, so apply sunscreen to any exposed treatment areas. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Hair falls out gradually during the days and weeks after treatment. Hair growth continues between treatments, but that’s normal.
Women and men considering laser hair removal travel from Belmont, Weston, Cambridge and throughout the area to ChicMed for treatments. Request a free consultation using the online form or call us at (781) 899-2442 to schedule an appointment. Specific expectations of each patient will be discussed at the consultation.Back to Top
