SUN & AGE SPOTS
The GentleMax Pro® is the newest most effective way to Treat Rosacea, Remove Sun and Age Spots, Pigmentation, and is also used for Wrinkle Reduction.
Unlike other lasers, the GentleMax Pro can be used on any skin type.
During GentleMax Pro® Laser treatment, unwanted melanin absorbs laser light, which breaks down the skin's pigment in that area without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. On a different setting, this treatment can also address damaged blood vessels that lie deeper under the skin. This includes vascular lesions (sometimes called "spider veins"), which will coagulate and shrink.*
During the weeks after treatment, your body's own "clean up" system completely eliminates those shattered melanin particles.* After this, there will be little or no trace of those spots or spidery veins you once had.
How many treatments do you need?
A single treatment can reduce the pigmented blemish.* However patients with darker pigmentation will need additional treatment. We will normally ask our clients to return 4 - 6 weeks after the treatment for a follow-up.
How much time is required?
Appointments are normally 15-30 minutes but may be longer for large numbers of brown spots.
Will laser work on my pigmentation?
Our lasers work to reduce age spots or pigmentation on any skin tone on the face or body. Clients with darker skin (Fitzpatrick scale 5 or greater) are not candidates for this procedure because the skin surrounding the brown spot could absorb too much laser energy and produce a more serious burn.
What are benefits of laser treatment?
As well as a treatment for age spots on the face or body, the heat from the laser will stimulate collagen and elastin production in the treated area, giving you additional skin toning and reducing fine wrinkles and the effects of age spots.
How do I take care of my skin after?
After reducing age spots from the face or body, you must strictly follow your post-treatment care routine and protect your skin from the sun. Use a broad spectrum sunscreen every day.
The GentleMax Pro® combines two fast and powerful lasers: the Alexandrite for light skin tones and the nd-YAG for darker skin tones. The lasers work through a series of treatments without harming the surrounding skin. This laser also uses a Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™), where cryogen is sprayed onto the skin a fraction of a second before each laser pulse, which provides increased comfort during treatment.
