LASER HAIR REMOVAL
The GentleMax Pro™ is the gold standard for effective hair removal in skin types I-VI, which includes most skin types. The GentleMax Pro™ excels in providing safe, high speed, effective laser hair removal with high patient satisfaction and comfort. Typically, permanent hair removal requires 4-6 treatments, but some patients require more.
Laser hair removal procedures impair the growth of hair follicles when they are in the growth cycle at the time of the procedure. There are three phases in a person’s hair growth cycle: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. Most clients need a minimum of 5-10 treatments in intervals of every 4 to 8 weeks, providing up to 80% permanent hair reduction. Many factors impact the efficiency of the results: the skill of the laser specialist, type of laser technology and a clients unique known and unknown conditions.
SUNSPOTS & HYPERPIGMENTATION
The GentleMax Pro™ can effectively remove unwanted brown sun damage spots and benign keratoses without scarring. The late fall and winter are the best times to start treatment of these lesions since the skin should be shielded from sun exposure before and after treatment for the best results. Some spots may require more than one treatment.
The GentleMax Pro™ can also treat diffuse sun damage which is often seen on the face, neck, chest and arms. Depending on the extent of sun damage, a series of treatments may be necessary, but significant improvement is seen with each treatment.
FACIAL REDNESS & BROKEN BLOOD VESSELS
The Gentlemax Pro™ can treat the background redness and broken blood vessels on the cheeks, nose and chin. Because the background redness and broken blood vessels are a result of broken blood vessels, you should expect to have some redness, swelling and possible bruising for several days after the treatment.
We suggest that you do not take aspirin or NSAIDS for 1 week prior to your procedure if medically allowable.
HOW DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL?
Some clients may feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, sometimes described like the snapping of rubber band on the skin. This discomfort resolves quickly and is minimized by Candela’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™).
