Kilkenny Laser Clinic
Our laser - Candela GentleMax Pro
Laser treatments for everyone and every condition
At Mint Laser clinic, Kilkenny, we use the leading laser technology. The Candela GentleMax Pro is a medical grade laser which includes two lasers, Alexandrite and ND YAG to treat all skin types with extremely high efficiency and safety. This system is the most up to date Candela machine on the market. Mint Clinic are one of the few clinics in Ireland to have the Candela GentleMax Pro system and offer all treatments including Laser Hair Removal for Men & Women, Pigmentation Removal, Thread Vein Removal, Redness treatment and Fungal Nail treatment.
How does it work?
The Candela GentleMax Pro uses laser technology to deliver an intense but gentle burst of energy onto specific areas of the skin, delivering a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat safely and effectively. Our system contains two Laser wavelengths, the Alexandrite and the NG Yag which means we can treat all skin tones safely. The time frame between treatments is important in terms of Hair Removal so that we ensure we target the hair in the right phase. We also allow 4 weeks between specialised treatments such as Thread Vein Removal and Pigmentation Removal to allow the skin to heal before we perform another treatment.
For anyone considering laser an initial consultation with Sheila is essential. This way Sheila can explain the process of your specific treatment and the cost and perform a patch test on the area, testing different energy levels in the process to ensure there is no reaction to treatment. The consultation is free of charge and with no obligation and is a great way of deciding if laser treatment is right for you.
How much does Laser treatment cost?
Laser Hair Removal starts at €35 per session. We offer courses on all treatments. When you pay for a course, you receive one treatment free.
Specialised Treatments for Thread Veins, Redness, Pigmentation and Fungal Nail start €80.
For all our Laser Treatments we offer Flexible Payment Plans. Sheila will discuss these during your consultation.
How long does treatment take?
A treatment could take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the area and the condition being treated. Usually areas like the chin or lip will take around 5 minutes and the Full Legs or Full Back may take around 1 hour.
What can I expect during treatment?
Treatment will take place in our Clinic Treatment room with our dedicated Laser Therapist Sheila. Sheila will utilize a hand piece to deliver laser pulses onto the desired treatment area. Some patients may feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse which is resolved instantly and minimized with the patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) for Hair Removal. The treatment is usually completed a lot quicker than patients expect. The larger distance gauges that we have mean that larger areas for Hair Removal such as Full Legs for Women or Full Back for Men can be sped up.
Once the treatment is completed Sheila will remind you about aftercare and will book your next appointment. Usually 4 weeks apart for Face and 6 weeks apart for Body.
When can I expect to see results?
The number of sessions depends on the desired treatment and the condition of your skin. This will be discussed with our Sheila in your consultation. We usually advise starting with a course of 6 treatments for Laser hair Removal and 4 treatments for Specialised areas.
