Laser Hair Removal

Unwanted hair is a problem that plagues both men and women. Historically, people have removed hair with a variety of methods, including shaving, plucking, waxing, chemi- cals, and electrolysis. The limitation of most of these methods is the temporary results. Electrolysis offers permanent results;
but due to its tedious nature, it was reserved for small areas or very motivated clients. Lasers are able to address both of these shortcomings. With the application
of laser technology to unwanted hair, it became possible to treat large areas quickly and still achieve long-term results.

The GentleMax Pro combines the largest spot size available with the most effective method of epidermal cooling to create a device with unmatched speed and safety. Cleared by the FDA for permanent reduction, the GentleMax makes it possible to treat large areas in one session.

GentleMaxPro uses laser technology to deliver an intense but gentle burst of energy onto targeted areas of the skin, delivering a controlled amount of therapeutic heat to the targeted area safely and effectively.
