Laser Treatments

Gentlemax Pro

Works for all skin types and colors

What can I expect during laser treatment?

A handpiece delivers a laser pulse into the targeted areas on your skin, and a controlled amount of therapeutic heat safely and effectively damages the hair follicles. Treatments take anywhere from a few minutes to about an hour, depending on the area being treated.

Do Gentle Hair Removal treatments hurt?

Gentle systems feature a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD), which minimizes discomfort by releasing a quick burst of liquid cryogen before and after each laser pulse. This cryogen quickly evaporates, cooling the outer layers of the skin. Some patients report a sensation similar to being snapped with a rubber band, but that generally resolves quickly with DCD cooling. A topical anesthetic may be used prior to treatment.

Is Gentle Hair Removal safe for darker skin tones?

There’s a safe, effective and comfortable Gentle treatment option for every skin tone. Consult with your physician about the best treatment for your individual needs.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

You’ll need a few treatments to get optimal results. That’s because hair grows in three stages:

The Growth Stage
Hair is thickest and darkest, so laser treatments are most effective.

The Transitional Stage
The hair begins to loosen from its follicle.

The Shedding Stage
The hair falls out to make room for new growth.
