Laser hair removal is the fastest and most thorough solution for removing unwanted body hair and facial hair. At California Skin Institute, we offer a variety of treatments including the GentleMax Pro® series. Using two wavelengths, the GentleMax Pro® destroys hair follicles to permanently reduce hair growth. In addition, the powerful laser technology and cooling functions of the GentleMax Pro® make it effective for treatment of other skin issues, such as the removal or reduction of vascular and pigmented lesions or malformations. GentleMax Pro® combines powerful lasers and revolutionary cooling techniques to deliver comfort, efficacy and long-lasting results across all skin colors, skin types and any area of the body.
How the GentleMax Pro® works
During treatment, the GentleMax Pro® laser delivers a brief, intense beam of light that is absorbed by the hair follicle and converted to heat. The heat damages the hair follicle but leaves surrounding tissue unaffected and unharmed. In synchronicity with its lasers, the GentleMax Pro® uses a cooling device that minimizes discomfort through a quick-delivery burst of liquid cryogen before and after each laser pulse.
Two wavelengths, 755nm and 1064 nm, make the GentleMax Pro® safe for other indications such as vascular and pigmented lesions or malformations, angiomas, port wine stains, brown spots and more.
Combined, these technologies provide comfort and effectiveness in hair removal and skin lesion reduction in short appointments with no downtime required after treatment.
Individual results may vary, as may the number of treatments required to achieve these results
