While a little hair here and there isn’t much to worry about, for some, it’s enough to make a day at the beach seem like a nightmare. If you’re dealing with unwanted facial or body hair and you find yourself covering up during the beautiful summer months, it’s time to shed those clothes once and for all by saying “yes” to laser hair removal.

Our GentleMax system boasts one of the fastest hair removal options around. So what makes GentleMax so special? We’re here to give you the hairy details!

What is GentleMax?

This single system offers both hair removal, as well as the removal of pigmented and vascular lesions. This system combines two fast and powerful lasers to offer a quicker and better performance than other laser hair removal systems out there. These dual lasers promise speed, quality, safety and most importantly—customer satisfaction!

What should I expect during my laser treatment?

The GentleMax is a non-invasive way to remove unwanted hair. It’s also equipped with a cooling pulse that reduces any discomfort during treatment. The process lasts anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. This powerful system can remove hair from just about anywhere including the lips, cheeks, underarms, back, legs and arms.

Does it hurt?

Most patients don’t experience anything other than a mild stinging. Luckily, the GentleMax cooling system helps eliminate a lot of the stinging and discomfort. One added benefit is that no anesthesia or pain medication is needed for this treatment, so you don’t have to worry about a recovery period or downtime. You can go right back to your daily activities without interruption.

How many treatments are necessary?

This is determined based on every patient’s individual hair removal needs; however, more than one treatment may be necessary depending on your hair’s thickness and location.

 What are some side effects?

The majority of laser hair removal side effects include redness and swelling around the hair follicle. This typically just means that the hair follicles are responding to treatment, which is great! As we mentioned earlier, there is really no recovery period needed after treatment, so you can return to your normal routine immediately after. Most redness and swelling will go down after a few hours.
