How many laser treatments will I need?

It is very important to understand that due to the staggered nature of hair growth cycle where some are actively growing & some are dormant, one requires multiple treatments. Results vary depending on the individuals background, ethnicity, individual hair type, hormonal levels and certain medication. It is good to start with 6 sessions then add more sessions as per your need.

What does laser treatment feel like?

A slight stinging sensation is attributed to laser treatment. Most of the clients can tolerate the treatment without difficulty.

How often do I need to come ?

Depending on the area we are treating you will be coming back anywhere between 6 to 8 weeks.

Laser Hair Removal Pre/Post Treatment Instructions

Pre-Treatment Instructions:

  1. Do not bleach, wax, tweeze, or use hair removal creams at any time before your treatment. You can however shave, clip, and cut.
  2. We may prescribe a compounded anesthetic numbing cream. Apply the cream. If you are applying this cream to your legs (It can be thighs or calves not both at once), full back, full chest, or both arms DO NOT use it on any other body area on the same treatment date. Full legs, backs, chest and arms requiring this medication must each be treated on separate dates. Other areas that do not require this anesthetic may be treated on the same day. Pregnant and nursing mothers can’t use numbing cream. Inform us of any pre-existing heart conditions.
  3. Stay out of the sun for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to treatment. This includes tanning beds and self-tanning creams. We can’t treat anyone with a sunburn or fresh tan. Discontinue use of any mineral make-up for three days prior to treatment.
  4. All treated areas are to be shaved with a new blade and MUST be done the night before treatment.Shaving the area is required to ensure proper treatment results. In addition, treating an area unshaved can be more sensitive and cause discomfort. If you are unable to shave the area you must inform upon making your appointment in order to allow for sufficient time for treatments. If you show up for your treatment and have not shaved, we reserve the right to refuse treatment due to time constraints and your treatment will be deducted from your laser package. However, if you show up for your treatment unshaved and time permits, the technician will shave the area but at an additional charge which must be paid prior to any treatments.  Cost will be dependent upon size of area.  See chart.
  5. It is best not to wear makeup on the area to be treated; but we can always remove it before your laser session.
  6. Guests undergoing bikini line hair removal should wear a narrow cut panty or swimsuit.
  7. If the area we are treating requires disrobing, you will be given a gown. In general, most guests are able to keep some or all of their clothes on during the laser hair removal procedure.
  8. Please be on time for your appointment. We make every effort to ensure our patients do not have to wait. We reserve the right to re-schedule your appointment if you are late or have not complied with pre-treatment instructions.
  9. Do not use self tanning, Retina-A 2 weeks prior or 2 weeks after treatment. Do not use topical medications or skin care products 3-5 days prior to treatment. If you are taking antibiotics you cannot receive laser hair removal treatments until 4 weeks after your last dose.
  10. Prior to your appointment please make arrangements with someone to watch your children. Absolutely no children are not allowed in the treatment room while treatments are being done. No EXCEPTIONS!  Children under the age of 12 are not allowed in waiting area without adult supervision.  If children are brought without adult supervision you will be required to reschedule your appointment and you will automatically lose that day’s treatment from your treatment series package.


Post-Treatment Instructions:

  1. All patients should avoid sun for 24 hours after treatment, or until redness disappears, and thereafter use a sun block (SPF 35 or higher).
  2. Hair Removal is not immediate. Some hair will fall out in 1-10 days.
  3. Do not worry if some hair persists after treatment.Do not use any other hair removal treatment products or similar treatments (waxing, electrolysis, or tweezing) in the treatment area for 4-6 weeks after the laser treatment is performed.
  4. Quick warm showers are recommended. If areas are treated other than the facial area, hot baths are not advised for 24 hours.
  5. If the skin is broken or a blister appears apply an antibiotic ointment and have the patient notify the physician. The area should be kept lubricated to prevent crusting or scabbing of tissue.
  6. Use 1% hydrocortisone cream twice a day for 3-5 days.
  7. Cold packs, aloe-vera or any other cooling preparation may be used to ease temporary discomfort.
  8. If redness or pain persists for more than 12 hours, call the salon.

At Sanctuary Salon & Day Spa, we use the latest technology in hair removal.  We cater to all skin types to deliver an unprecedented combination of safety, versatility and effectiveness.  Sanctuary is an approved laser facility by the state of Florida and under physician supervision to ensure that you can get the absolute best treatment for hair removal in the industry. We use true laser we do not use IPL.

Gentle Max Pro

GentleMax Pro® brings together two gold standard lasers (GentleYAG and GentleMax Pro®) to create one unbeatable system. GentleYAG, the fastest and most powerful Nd:YAG 1064 nm laser on the market, effectively treats all skin types, including tanned skin.Candela’s 755 nm laser, is the premier treatment for unwanted hair.

Light Sheer Diode Laser

Laser technology works by emitting pulses of light into the hair follicles.  The light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat.  The heat then loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair.


Most people find laser to be a comfortable method of hair removal.  Traditional waxing and threading treatments, which essentially rip the hair from the skin, can be quite painful.  Laser hair removal ends the costly repetitive procedures of shaving, tweezing, chemical depilatories, waxing and electrolysis.  Based on technology that has been used for nearly a decade, laser hair removal is safe and effective.  The procedure itself is non-invasive and there is no associated down time, though sun exposure needs to be minimized both prior to and subsequent to the treatments for a period of time.  Outcomes can be quite significant and rewarding, both physically and emotionally.  The increasing popularity of the procedure attests to its success. You have your choice of skin cooling options from chilled air technology to Candela’s integrated and patented Dynamic Cooling Device that utilizes bursts of cryogen before and after the laser pulse to offer unparalleled patient comfort.


Why this over others (More specific to clients)

  • The Gentle Max Pro/LightSheer laser is specifically designed for hair removal. Unlike IPL that has multiple uses LightSheer targets only the hair follicle because of its very specific wavelength.
  • The Gentle Max Pro /LightSheer laser is also treats pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB or razor bumps), leg veins, and some dark spots on the skin.
  • The Gold Standard for hair removal with an unsurpassed library of clinically documented success
  • Treats all skin types including tanned skin, most hair colors, depths and diameters
  • Fast coverage rate

Is the procedure painful?

There is a minor amount of discomfort experienced by some people but much less than waxing or electrolysis.  Our laser has an actively cooled sapphire tip that greatly reduces any discomfort by cooling the skin during the treatment.

What should I expect?

Around 7-14 days after treatment, hairs will begin to surface.  Most of these hairs were treated and are “shedding.”  It is not re-growth.  The hair follicles need to purge the hairs that remain under the skin.  Please refrain from waxing, plucking, or bleaching between treatments (shaving is okay).

What happens to the skin after treatment?

Within about 30 minutes of treatment, the area may become pink or red.  Clients describe it as mild sunburn.

How does hair grow?

Everyone’s hair grows differently, depending on age, metabolism, hormones, ethnicity, medications and other factors.  All hair goes through three distinct growth phases:  During the Active growth phase (called the Anagen phase) the hair has an abundance of melanin (color pigment), which is what the laser targets.  The laser works by disabling hair in the active growth stage (Anagen) at the time of treatment.  At any given time a portion of our hair is in this stage.

How many treatments will I need?
Because not all hairs are in the active stage during treatment, a series of treatments are necessary.  For best results, plan for 10+ treatments depending upon individual variables.  Treatments are usually given at intervals of 6-8 weeks.  Our laser technician can discuss your goals to develop a program based on your specific circumstance.
