A Gentlemax Pro laser emits a concentrated wavelength of infrared light that penetrates deep into the skin to target melanin in the hair follicle without harming surrounding tissue. The laser light is absorbed and converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles to inhibit or delay future hair growth. The Gentlemax Pro laser has one of the largest treatment spot sizes to simultaneously target numerous hair follicles, allowing for faster and more uniform treatment.
In a Gentlemax Pro laser hair removal treatment, the laser light only affects actively growing hair follicles. Since hair grows in different phases over time, multiple treatments are required for desired results.
Each treatment course typically ranges from 4-8 sessions, but may vary by individual, as well as type and density of hair. Most notice a significant reduction in hair growth after just a few sessions. For best results, treatments for the face are usually booked 4 weeks apart while body is 6 weeks.
The Gentlemax Pro incorporates a Sub-Zero cooling tip system. This provides cooling before, during and after each pulse, assuring a comfortable and pain-free experience. The technology freezes and numbs pain receptors to allow treatments to performed at higher energy levels, ensuring optimal treatment. Immediately after treatment slight redness or swelling is likely and will quickly dissipate.
