What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a treatment that involves using a specific laser to target pigmentation and destroy hair follicles. This technique aims to completely eliminate the hair follicle so no hair is able to grow back after the treatment. The result is soft, smooth skin that has significantly less hair or no hair at all. 

How Does The GentleMax Pro® System Work?

The GentleMax Pro® is a dual wavelength laser platform that combines an efficient and powerful 755nm Alexandrite laser with a more gentle, yet equally powerful 1064nm Nd:YAG laser. 

This dual laser combination means the GentleMax Pro® boasts adaptive capabilities to better achieve your unique goals, as well as incredible speed and increased effectiveness. Its elevated performance makes this device easy for your provider to use, which helps ensure maximum comfort for you. Furthermore, with two lasers that can be changed, the GentleMax Pro® is safe for all skin tones and types. 

The GentleMax Pro® dual lasers target the pigmentation in hair follicles to fully destroy or significantly damage them. This prevents or slows down hair growth, resulting in soft, silky-smooth skin. 

Where Can The GentleMax Pro® Be Used On The Body?

The GentleMax Pro® can be used on almost any part of the body. The most common places we administer laser hair removal are the: 

  • Armpits   
  • Arms 
  • Legs 
  • Back 
  • Bikini Line 
  • Facial Areas (Upper Lip, Sideburns, etc.)

Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal With The GentleMax Pro®

There are several benefits to using the GentleMax Pro® for a laser hair removal treatment. Here are some reasons why our dermatologists love using this dual laser device to help our patients address and remove unwanted hair! 

Safe for all skin types

Because the GentleMax Pro® contains two lasers, different wavelengths can be utilized for both lighter and darker skin tones. 

Unique cooling system

Lasers may produce intense heat during the treatment, causing discomfort. However, the GentleMax Pro® has a built-in cooling system for optimal cooling and comfort. 

Wider target potential

The GentleMax Pro® is larger than other laser devices, which means it can target a wider area and reduce treatment time. 

Minimal downtime – This is a non-ablative laser, which means the GentleMax Pro® only goes beneath the surface of the skin to target hair follicles. With no surface damage, the treatment produces quick results with minimal downtime.
