What Is GentleMax Pro?

GentleMax Pro is a dual-wavelength laser used to treat unwanted body hair, vascular and pigmented lesions, and spider veins. The laser device combines a 1064nm Nd:YAG laser with a 755 nm Alexandrite laser. By providing two wavelengths in a single device, GentleMax Pro can be used to treat all skin types and tones effectively.

Are you ready to commit to a series of treatments to eliminate excess body hair, skin lesions, or spider veins? Do you have excess body hair that makes you feel self-conscious? If so, a GentleMax Pro treatment may be right for you.

  • Unwanted body hair
  • Hair with some brown or black pigment. (Lasers do not work on grey, blond or red hair)
  • Lesions or spider veins
  • The ability to commit to a series of treatments
  • Reasonable expectations

If you are not a good candidate for GentleMax Pro, review additional nonsurgical treatments available at SpaMedica.

Benefits of GentleMax Pro

Treats All Skin Types
GentleMax Pro treats patients with light and dark skin. For those with darker skin or sun damage, the laser technician uses the 1064 nm Nd:YAG wavelength to avoid harming the overlying skin’s pigment. Lighter skinned patients get treated with the 755 nm Alexandrite.

Permanently Removes up to 80 Percent of Unwanted Hair
GentleMax Pro permanently removes unwanted hair. Patients see a reduction of up to 75-80% percent after completing the treatment protocol. SpaMedica offers additional services to treat the remaining 20 percent of unwanted hair.

Treats Pigmented Lesions, Vascular Lesions, and Spider Veins
Patients with unsightly lesions or spider veins can reduce or eliminate them with GentleMax Pro. Patients notice a marked improvement following the first treatment and undergo additional treatments until they receive the results they want.

Fast and Painless
GentleMax Pro is fast and painless. It can treat large areas at once, and the system numbs the area with a cryogen freezing spray. The cryogen spray numbs the skin immediately before the laser fires, making the treatment painless.

GentleMax Pro Risks

Risks are uncommon when undergoing a GentleMax Pro treatment. Patients should understand the potential risks.

Pigment Changes
While rare, pigment changes can occur after undergoing a GentleMax Pro treatment. Some patients experience decreased or increased pigmentation in the treated area. This complication is reduced by avoiding sun exposure for the first four weeks following the treatment.

Lesion Recurrence
Those who undergo GentleMax Pro treatments for lesions might experience a recurrence. Fortunately, patients can undergo another series of GentleMax Pro treatments if the lesions come back.

Scarring
While extremely rare, it is possible to experience scarring following the procedure. Dr. Mulholland provides patients with post-procedure instructions to reduce the risk of scarring.

Superficial Skin Injury
Some patients experience superficial injuries to the outer layer of the skin. This can cause scabs and swelling on the skin. Upon healing, the area might be sensitive to sunlight for up to 12 weeks.

How Is GentleMax Pro Performed by Dr. Mulholland?

Dr. Mulholland performs or oversees GentleMax Pro treatments at SpaMedica. SpaMedica’s laser technicians benefit from Dr. Mulholland’s training and provide an optimal service. The provider might use a topical anaesthetic to numb the area, although this is not always necessary since most report the treatment is painless. If there is discomfort, Nitrous Oxide laughing gas is used to make the procedure comfortable. After preparing the treatment area, the provider focuses the laser on the treatment area to remove hair or the appearance of lesions or spider veins.

Patients usually undergo five treatments. The treatments are spaced out based on growth cycles and are usually 6-12 weeks apart.
