After many years of research, the scientists of “Candela” have designed a laser system capable of achieving permanent hair reduction.
“GentleMax Pro” has the most advanced, effective, and safest laser technology on the market. This system can be used on people of any skin color, as it is equipped with two wavelengths: “Alexandrite” 755 nm and “ND-YAG” 1064 nm.
The laser light is specifically directed to the melanin contained in the hair follicle. The high temperatures generated by the laser eliminate the hair from the root.
“GentleMax Pro” also features an automatic cooling system called Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD). DCD is activated a few milliseconds before emitting the laser, using a coolant spray that protects the skin from the high temperatures generated by the laser. This helps to provide the patient with minimal discomfort during treatment.
It only takes 3 to 5 laser sessions to effectively reduce hair on the face, neck, back, armpits, arms, and legs. Each session lasts 20 to 30 minutes, and patients can return to their daily activities immediately. The result is “permanent reduction” of 80% of treated hair.
It is simply fascinating how technology has advanced so much that unwanted hair can now be removed from anywhere on the body, on people of any skin type and with little or no pain for the patient.
“GentleMax Pro” is also used to remove small vascular lesions on the skin (varices, telangiectasia). The laser light is attracted by hemoglobin, which is a pigment contained in the blood vessels. Small veins on the skin can be treated in a few sessions and it is an ideal complement to sclerotherapy.
“GentleMax Pro” is also used to effectively remove sun-generated spots, improve redness on the face and for skin resurfacing on any part of the body.
