The GentleMax Pro® is a revolutionary laser hair removal system proven to be effective on men and women of all skin types and hair color. As the name suggests, it is gentle and relatively painless.
All lasers have some discomfort on some level, due to the heat source being used, but the unique thing about GentleMax Pro® is the cooling technology. Before each pulse of heat, there is a patented “Dynamic Cooling Device®” (DCD®) used to cool the area being treated. The DCD® sprays a cooling burst of cryogen on the skin to ensure the treatment is not only effective but comfortable.
The GentleMax Pro can be used for all skin types and shades for laser hair removal, as well as pigmented and vascular lesions. It is a dual wavelength laser system that combines the fastest and most powerful 755 nm Alexandrite laser with the 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser for high performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficacy, ease-of-use, outstanding performance, safety and patient satisfaction. It also has a patented Dynamic Cooling Device®, which reduces discomfort from the laser pulses during treatment.
Laser hair removal takes a series of treatments to obtain maximum results. Hair growth is reduced after each treatment and the number of treatments required will be based on your hair color and type, body area and skin tone. A treatment plan will outlined by our laser specialist.
Avoid sun exposure to the area being treated for at last 2 weeks before your treatment. Ideally, plan your laser hair removal during a time that your skin is not tanned. The winter season is ideal time of year for most individuals living in Orange County. Do not bleach, pluck or wax 4 to 6 weeks before and after treatment. Wait until your tan fades before beginning treatment.
Your total appointment time will vary depending on how many areas are being treated. Plan on being at our office for one hour unless informed otherwise by our laser specialist. Your skin may be slightly red immediately following treatment. This can last from a few minutes to several hours.
You can immediately resume your regular daily activities, however it is important to keep the treated area out of the sun for one week. Be sure to schedule your next session before leaving our office.
