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, removing unwanted body hair so you can say goodbye to painful waxing and plucking.
Patients choose treatment with GentleMax Pro laser system when they experience unwanted body hair on the arms, underarms, legs, back, chest, face, bikini area and more. The GentleMax Pro can be used for all skin types and shades for laser hair removal, as well as pigmented and vascular lesions. Orange County men with dark skin and/or coarse hair almost always complain about annoying ingrown hairs and razor burn. Using the GentleMax Pro on the face and neck will prevent those pesky breakouts. And, let’s not forget about excessive hair on the back, chest or shoulders. All of these areas can be effectively treated in fewer sessions at our Newport Beach medical spa than other medical spas who use older technology.
GentleMax Pro uses 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. When directed at the hair follicle, laser energy is absorbed through the hair pigment, damaging the follicle and preventing regrowth. It also has a patented Dynamic Cooling Device®, which reduces discomfort from the laser pulses during treatment.
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 laser light will then be administered to the treatment area in a grid-like pattern. 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
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 be outlined by our laser specialist. Older technology lasers required those with darker skin tones or coarse hair to have more treatments to be effective. In many cases, the overall result was last than ideal. With the GentleMax Pro, typically 4-6 sessions are needed spaced 6 weeks apart.
BioSpa® was my first medical spa experience and I have to say that it was a great one! I was referred by a friend to go to this medical spa because she has always been raving about the great experience and results. The staff is very polite and helpful, answering any questions I had.
Your skin may be slightly red immediately following treatment with the GentleMax Pro laser. 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.
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 an 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.
In the weeks between treatment sessions, patients will notice the hair begin to fall out. After optimal treatment sessions, patients report reduced body hair for a smoother look and feel without the need for waxing, shaving, or plucking. Once treated, hair cannot grow from the follicle again, leading to permanent results.
When it comes to laser hair removal, there are several different options that BioSpa® offers. Besides GentleMax Pro, we also offer hair removal with miraSmooth, using gentle microwave energy. Our laser treatment experts will meet with you to determine which treatment is right for you and your skin type.
