About The GentleMax Pro™:
The GentleMax Pro™ excels in providing safe, high speed, effective laser hair reduction with high patient satisfaction and comfort. It is a dual platform laser using a 755nm Alexandrite laser and a 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser, This hair reduction system works by delivering a brief but intense beam of light, which is then absorbed by the hair follicle and converted into heat. The heat damages the hair follicle around the bulb and prevents future hair growth, while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed, and damage free.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, laser hair reduction requires 6 treatments, but some patients require more.
Before Your Treatment:
Before you come in for your treatment, be sure to shave the area you wish to address. Come in with clean skin, no lotions or deodorants in the treatment area.
There is no "downtime" after your GentleMax Pro™ laser hair reduction treatment. We just ask that you avoid any prolonged sun exposure.
The CO2RE® fractional laser skin resurfacing works to reduce age spots, fine lines, scarring, stretch marks, uneven pigmentation, skin laxity, wrinkles, textural irregularities and skin tone, all while increasing collagen production.
Laser treatments with the CO2RE® CO2 Fractional Laser will enhance the skin’s strength and elasticity. As a person begins to age, their collagen production begins to decline which leads to the breakdown of the skin’s underlying support structure. CO2RE® is ideal for anyone seeking younger looking skin without the long downtime associated with conventional resurfacing procedures.
Come to your appointment with clean skin. A topical numbing agent will be applied, for your comfort.
MILD: Ultimate collagen remodeling with little to no down time. You can have your treatment on a Friday and wear makeup on Monday.
MEDIUM: Slightly more aggressive with moderate down time. You will be able to wear makeup 3-5 days post treatment.
DEEP: Aggressive treatment with a downtime of at least 5-7 days before makeup can be applied.
Skin will experience erythema and edema up to a few days post treatment.
Post care will be discussed at your consultation.
The GentleMax Pro® is an FDA approved device for the treatment of nail fungus.
A nail fungus treatment works by focusing a laser into a nail infected with fungus (onychomycosis). The laser penetrates the nail and removes the fungus embedded in the nail bed and nail plate. The targeted laser is tuned to a specific frequency that affects cells that are responsible for infection.
If you’re suffering from toenail fungus and haven’t had luck with oral or topical treatments, it may be time to take a more serious approach. Not sure? If you are noticing flaky debris, discoloration, detachment or change in texture, give us a call to set up a complimentary consultation.
