GentleMax Pro® Laser Treatments
The dual wavelength GMax Pro helps smooth wrinkles by stimulating and increasing collagen production under the surface of the skin. An overall improvement in skin texture, skin tone and pore size can be expected after a series of treatments. Photo rejuvenation can also remove unwanted brown spots and freckles resulting from sun damage, age and hormones, as well as make small facial blood vessels disappear from the skin’s surface.

GentleMax Pro® FAQs
What makes GentleMax Pro effective?
The secret to its effectiveness lies in its use of two different lasers: the Alexandrite for light skin tones and the nd-YAG for darker skin tones. They are able to destroy hair follicles, brown spots and blood vessels over the course of multiple treatments, all without harming the skin.
What should I expect from my GentleMax Pro treatment?
The process is quite simple and requires no effort on your part. We start by cleansing the skin and applying protection to your eyes. A small hand-held device will be used to deliver pulses of laser light to the skin. Prior to each laser pulse, we will spray coolant onto your skin, minimizing the sensation of heat and keeping you comfortable.
How long does GentleMax Pro treatment take?
The length of a GentleMax Pro treatment session will depend on the size of the area being treated. For some people, this may take just a few minutes. For others, it can require over an hour. When you schedule your session, we will be able to give you an accurate time estimate.
Does GentleMax Pro treatment hurt?
Most people state that the treatment is not painful, but it can produce some discomfort at times. This is generally remedied by the Dynamic Cooling Device™. If you have sensitive skin or are concerned about discomfort during your procedure, a topical anesthetic can be used to keep you as comfortable as possible.
What is recovery from GentleMax Pro treatment like?
Directly after your session, your skin will be red and may be swollen. Some people also experience a sensation similar to a sunburn. Cool compresses and aloe vera gel can help to relieve this. Most people will see the redness and swelling dissipate within hours, though for those with sensitive skin, it could last several days.
How many GentleMax Pro treatments are needed for optimal results?
This will depend on the condition of your skin and what you are treating. On average, most people generally need at least three treatments spaced about a month and a half apart. We will be able to give you an estimate of the sessions needed during your consultation.
How should I prepare for GentleMax Pro treatment?
This will vary based on why you are seeking GentleMax Pro treatment. For example, if you’re interested in laser hair removal, we will ask that all types of hair removal except shaving be stopped for at least six weeks before your session. We will explain all the preparations you need to make when you schedule your appointment.
How much does GentleMax Pro treatment cost?
There is no set price for GentleMax Pro treatment. The cost will vary based on how large of an area you wish to treat, what the goal of treatment is and how many sessions you need. Other factors that could increase the cost include the use of topical anesthetic and if there are any other treatments you would like to have rendered at the same time. No matter what, the cost of GentleMax Pro treatment will not come as a surprise as we will give you an accurate quote when we schedule your session.
