The GentleMax Pro® is an innovative laser treatment featuring a sophisticated design that combines the power of two lasers into a single device. Because of its dual-wavelength platform, the GentleMax Pro® can effectively treat a variety of common cosmetic concerns, no matter your skin type. In addition, the GentleMax Pro® may also be a quicker and more effective treatment than alternative techniques while offering the same or even more noticeable results.
1. Skin Rejuvenation
A number of factors can contribute to dull, tired-looking skin, including sun exposure, smoking, alcohol consumption and even the body’s natural aging process. Laser skin resurfacing treatments like the GentleMax Pro® have become popular for their ability to restore the skin to a younger, more refreshed and re-energized appearance.
Laser treatments can address a wide range of different complexion concerns.
2. Fine Lines and Wrinkles
The GentleMax Pro® can also treat fine lines and wrinkles by removing damaged or dead skin cells while also stimulating your skin’s natural collagen production to promote new growth. As the skin begins to produce more collagen, lines and wrinkles are filled in and smoothed, revealing a younger, more even look.
3. Skin Tightening
In much the same way that the GentleMax Pro® can eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, this innovative technology can also help to tighten loose, sagging skin. The heat from the bursts of laser light causes the skin to contract, resulting in a firmer, tighter appearance.
4. Hair Removal
Laser hair removal works by directing pulses of laser light to the targeted area, which is then absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle, inhibiting that hair from growing. But because the melanin in the surrounding skin can also absorb the laser light, traditional laser hair removal generally works best for those with darker hair and lighter skin.
Certified laser technicians will often use the Fitzpatrick scale to determine the ideal candidates for laser hair removal. The Fitzpatrick scale considers varying degrees of skin pigmentation and helps the technician to understand which laser settings to use to avoid damaging the skin.
The GentleMax Pro® can safely and effectively treat people with darker complexions or finer, lighter-colored hair. GentleMax Pro® has a combination of two different types of lasers that can be custom-tailored to match your unique skin tone and hair color combination.
5. Facial and Leg Veins
Because the GentleMax Pro® consists of dual lasers, it can do the work of two different laser treatment types, including reducing the appearance of veins on the face and legs.
Thin red or blue thread-like veins that can resemble a spider web are a common cosmetic concern for many people.
Often referred to as spider veins, this skin condition results from broken capillaries just beneath the skin’s surface.
The GentleMax Pro® can reduce or eliminate the appearance of unsightly veins by targeting the red portion of blood cells in the affected area.
Despite its general safety and effectiveness, it’s important that GentleMax Pro® only be used by a certified laser technician to ensure safe, optimal results. Prior to your treatment session, it’s a good idea to inquire about certification and experience of your laser technician, as well as address any questions or concerns you might have with a trained professional. He or she will be best able to determine if the GentleMax Pro® or other laser treatments can help you achieve your desired look.
