GentleMax Pro™ Laser Hair Removal in Boca Raton, FL
Located in Boca Raton, and serving the residents of West Palm Beach and all of South Florida, Sanctuary Medical Center offers laser hair removal via the GentleMax™ Pro.
The laser technology field had dramatically expanded over the past decade. Even as recently as two decades ago, patients desiring skin enhancement had very limited choices available to them. As science in this field has advanced, the power of lasers to heal and treat various cosmetic concerns has grown dramatically.
What is the GentleMax™ Pro Laser for Laser Hair Removal?
The GentleMax™ Pro Laser treatment system is a cutting-edge treatment for the removal of unwanted hair. It combines two lasers: The Yag for dark skin and the Alexandrite or Alex for light skin. The GentleMax™ Pro Laser system differs from other laser treatments in that it was created to work for patients with all skin tones and with minimal risk. It has the ability to remove literally hundreds of hair follicles simultaneously.
GentleMax™ Pro Laser Advantages
Treatment times using the GentleMax™ Pro Laser are up to 60 percent less for large areas of the body. Places such as the legs and back that once took over an hour to treat, now take as few as 20 minutes using the GentleMax™ Pro Laser. This is due to the improved spot size of the special laser handpiece. Small areas such as armpits often take less than five minutes to treat.
The cutting-edge GentleMax™ Pro Laser technology has significantly reduced the incidence of treatment discomfort for patients. Most people can tolerate their treatment without using any anesthetic. The GentleMax™ Pro state-of-the-art cooling tech also minimizes patient discomfort to the point of painlessness.
Safe For Any Skin Type
The GentleMax™ Pro Laser is approved by the FDA for safe use on all skin types. Safety is the priority at Sanctuary Medical Center. You can rest assured that your treatment will be performed by the most qualified and highly trained professionals.
The GentleMax™ Pro Laser uses both Alexandrite and YAG lasers, making it more effective than other types of lasers for the treatment of different skin types.
Outdated treatments for the removal of unwanted hair included electrolysis, waxing, plucking, shaving, and chemicals. Many of the treatments were very messy or painful, and they only provided a very temporary reduction in unwanted hair. Almost permanent hair reduction is possible with laser hair removal. It is becoming an increasingly popular option for those who seek a long-lasting hair removal solution. It is estimated by the American Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgeons that over 1.3 million laser hair removal procedures took place in the U.S. in the last year statistics were available, which makes laser hair removal the aesthetic laser procedure and second only to Botox®.
Having unwanted hair removed with a laser can help save money over the long haul because it is a permanent solution while other treatment options require follow-up treatments. Not only can the GentleMax™ Pro Laser reduce hair, but its effectiveness means fewer treatments are necessary than with outdated technologies, which leads to future treatment savings.
How does the GentleMax™ Pro Laser work?
The GentleMax™ Pro Laser system can remove hair using advanced laser technology. Earlier laser hair removal systems were more limited because they did not use the innovation of two lasers at one time, which means our dermatologists can utilize stronger settings that offer results that last longer for all skin types. The GentleMax™ Pro Laser system can effectively remove hundreds of hairs at one time while a cooling pulse is transmitted to the treatment area for the reduction of discomfort. Treatment times range from a matter of minutes to one hour, based upon the size of the area to be treated. This treatment safely and effectively removes unwanted hair from areas as diverse as the face, legs, arms, underarms, back, and bikini area.
What should I expect during my GentleMax™ Pro Laser Treatment?
Treatment with the GentleMax™ Pro Laser is often pain-free, but some patients do experience a minor, brief sting that can be minimized with the use of topical creams. One feature of the GentleMax™ Pro Laser is a cryogenic cooling spray, which offers immediate relief of discomfort.
What should I do following my GentleMax™ Pro Laser treatment?
You should be able to resume your daily tasks following your procedure, although it is not uncommon to experience some minor redness in the treatment area. Any minor redness or swelling should only last a few hours and actually is an indication of the success of your treatment. A special lotion may be used, and you may also use makeup, but limit your sun exposure.
How many GentleMax™ Pro Laser sessions will I require?
Patients typically require four to six treatments for significant laser hair reduction, while some choose to have maintenance treatments following their initial treatments.
