For many people, having darker skin eliminates some laser treatment options due to a risk of causing skin discoloration. Now, all skin colors can say goodbye to unwanted hair without having to wax or shave. The GentleMAX laser is a breakthrough laser technology that is gentle, painless and effective for all skin types. While most lasers are relatively painful because of the heating up of the skin, GentleMAX has a patented cooling technology that counters the heat with every pulse. GentleMAX uses a combo of two laser sources, The GentleYAG laser and the GentleLASE alexandrite laser system. These two lasers allow GentleMAX to be customized to treat a variety of skin conditions. This laser is primarily touted as the best laser hair removal system available on the market for ethnic skin. This is because the broad spectrum of GentleMAX laser technology allows different laser intensities that can be adjusted to treat everything from facial veins to unwanted body hair.
The GentleMAX laser is considered an all encompassing treatment because it can treat light, tanned or darker skin. Not only that, it is provides long term hair removal results in areas such as the face, bikini line or back. For uneven areas of skin, GentleMAX can greatly diminish hyper pigmentation, age spots – even spider veins on the legs. That being said, it is no wonder GentleMAX has become such a popular laser treatment.
After your GentleMAX treatment, it is important to avoid any sun exposure in the treatment areas. There may be some slight redness or swelling, but that will resolve after a few hours. It is important to be gentle with your skin following your treatment. Avoid scrubbing the skin, any sun exposure and apply a cool compress if necessary.
