What are GentleMax Pro treatment sessions like?
GentleMax Pro lasers are powerful, cutting-edge devices that deliver permanent hair reduction quickly and efficiently. Gentle Pro lasers selectively target the hair follicle with intense pulses of laser energy for thermal destruction without damaging the surrounding tissue. The patented Dynamic Cooling Device cooling system provides epidermal protection by spraying the skin before each laser pulse with a liquid coolant. This cooling system is also adjustable to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible.
The duration of each session varies based on patient needs and treatment site, but on average last twenty minutes. Because hair grows in stages, multiple treatments are required to ensure every strand is targeted.
Laser hair removal treatments are commonly described as similar to having an elastic band snapped against the skin. The GentleMax Pro cooling system will do its part to reduce discomfort.
After treatment, you may apply a cool compress or gel pack. Any redness or swelling after treatment should resolve within a couple of hours. You may resume normal activities after each session, but you should avoid sun exposure or abrasive skin cleansers on the treated skin for a few days.
