How GentleMax Pro Hair Removal works
Gentle Hair Removal laser targets the hair follicle at the root, delivering a burst of gentle energy and therapeutic heat to provide permanent hair reduction over the course of a few treatments. In additional super-fast treatment times, Gentle Hair Removal ensures additional comfort through its patented Dynamic Cooling Device™, which uses cooling bursts of liquid cryogen for laser hair removal treatment available today!
GentleMax Pro Removal laser hair removal treatment is faster and more comfortable than standard laser hair removal treatment. 80% permanent hair reduction in only 3 treatments.
What is GentleMax Pro?
The GentleMax Pro® is the newest most effective way to remove unwanted hair for all skin type (1-6). The GentleMax Pro is a dual wavelength laser platform that combines the fastest and most powerful 755 nm Alexandrite laser with an equally powerful 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser.
Is GentleMax Pro Laser painful:
GentleMax Pro lasers utilize a special patented cooling system that lowers the temperature of the skin at the procedure site before, during, and after laser exposure. It is almost painless. No local anesthesia or pain medication is required, but for more sensitive areas, topical anesthetic cream can be used.
What benefits can I expect:
You can expect removal of 30% to 90% of your hair after 3 to 6 laser treatments. The rest of the hair grows back and requires follow-up treatments. Not all hair is removed in a single treatment because hair strands exist at different growth stages, some in which hair is pigmented and others in which hair is not pigmented. To be absorbed by laser energy, hair strands must have pigment. Hair strands in a non-pigmented growth stage cannot interact with laser energy and will not be removed until they reach a growth stage in which they are pigmented. As you may suspect, white hair and light-colored hair require more treatments than dark hair. For these reasons we can’t guarantee removal of 100% of hair.
What are the risks and side effects:
Although uncommon, a superficial blister or scab may develop after treatment. Healing typically requires 2 to 14 days with regular use of antibiotic ointment. Infection is rare because the skin is not broken during treatment. A scar may form in less than 1 in 20 treatments.
Changes in skin color may occur, although this is very rare. Treatment of pigmentary abnormalities consists of prescription creams, chemical peels, or further laser treatment. Skin color changes happen in only 1 in 20 cases. Skin that is tanned or naturally dark has a higher risk of side effects. That’s why it’s important to allow your suntan or artificial tan to fade before treatment. If your skin is naturally dark you may need additional treatments because we treat dark skin more conservatively to minimize side effects.
Prior to treatment all potential risks and side effects will be discussed with you by our cosmetic coordinator.
How will I look and feel before and after Laser Hair Removal:
If your skin is tanned by sun exposure or artificial tanning lotion you should allow at least 4 weeks for the tan to fade before the procedure. You may continue to shave before, during, and after treatment. No other preparation is necessary.
Advise us if your medical history includes cold sores or herpes virus infection. This information will help prevent complications.
The treated area may be red and swollen for a few hours after treatment. You may apply makeup immediately. The treated hair falls out during the next 2 to 4 weeks. You may clip or shave this hair during this time. Do not, however, pluck or wax the hair before or between treatments. If you do, the laser treatments will be less effective.
Can this be combined with other treatments:
Yes. Laser hair removal may be combined with other cosmetic treatments, most of them on the same day as laser treatment.
Who should not have Laser Hair Removal:
Patients who are pregnant or have taken Accutane during the previous three months should not have laser hair removal. If you wear a pacemaker or defibrillator you may not be treated with devices which, in addition to laser or light energy, include radiofrequency energy. If you have recently waxed, plucked, or bleached your target hair you should postpone laser hair removal.
