At Silhouette Med Spa & Weight Management, we offer GentleMax Pro laser hair removal treatments for fast, efficient and gentle hair reduction that’s safe for all skin types. Laser treatment results are long-lasting and the procedure causes only minimal discomfort.
GentleMax Pro may also be used to treat age spots, veins visible on the face and legs, and to rejuvenate your skin overall.
What are the benefits of this process?
Permanent hair reduction. 90 percent of clients experience permanent hair loss within 6-9 sessions.
How does laser hair removal work?
GentleMax treatments are non-invasive, delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles at a time. To reduce discomfort, the laser uses a patented cooling system that sprays cryogen to deeply cool the top layer of your skin before and after every pulse of the laser. Depending on the size of the area being treated, a treatment may last a few minutes or an hour or more. GentleMax Pro can remove hair from all areas of the body including the face, underarms, legs, arms and back.
Will it be painful?
The majority of clients are able to tolerate this process very well. The laser is pulsed so rapidly, that only a mild stinging sensation is experienced. This procedure does not require any form of medication or anesthesia before or after.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Theoretically, damage to the hair follicle can remove unwanted hair permanently, but because of the nature of hair and the many factors that influence the growth of hair, the results vary from client to client. The effect of repeated treatments is cumulative, with 90 percent of clients experience permanent hair loss.
Is laser hair removal safe?
As with any medical treatment, use of any laser hair removal system may have some side effects. However, side effects have been minor and manageable. The precise laser parameters used for each laser hair removal system was carefully defined by studying the anatomy of the hair follicle and precisely matching the color of laser light and the pulse duration to the size, depth, and location of the hair follicle. This research has resulted in a safe technique that effectively reduces the risk of scarring and most other complications following treatment.
You may shave the area to be treated the day before treatment, but it’s advised not to pluck or wax before or after your GentleMax Pro treatments begin.
After a GentleMax Pro treatment you can resume normal activities, but sunscreen must be worn on any treated areas whenever exposed to the sun. Limiting sun exposure to treated areas by covering them with clothing or staying indoors is best. You may also be advised to use a formulated skin care product after the procedure.
