GentleMax Pro from Candela is one of the newest, most sought-after light therapy for treating a variety of cosmetic concerns. Unlike similar procedures, GentleMax is safe and effective for tightening, toning, and rejuvenating just about any skin type. Enjoy younger, healthier-looking skin with virtually no downtime.
GentleMax Can Treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Skin pigmentation
- Skin tone and texture
- Brown spots
- Overall rejuvenation
How Does It Work?
Your skin tightening treatment can be performed in-office in a short visit. After calibrating the GentleMax handheld device, Dr. Brady Harris’ expert laser and light staff will guide the handpiece along the treatment area to deliver pulsed, infrared light deep below the surface of the skin. The controlled thermal damage triggers collagen to naturally contract and tighten skin. Surrounding tissue remains unharmed.
When Can I Expect to See Results?*
Smooth skin may not be seen immediately following your GentleMax Pro treatment. However, full results usually take several weeks to become evident as collagen helps renew deeper layers of skin. Gradual improvement will continue to occur for 3-6 months post-treatment. While minor skin laxity issues can be corrected with only one treatment, the majority of patients require up to 4-6 treatments to achieve desired results. Maintenance procedures can be safely performed annually or as needed.
Does It Hurt?*
GentleMax Pro uses Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) to blast a cooling spray directly before each light pulse to keep you as comfortable as possible. Many patients report a warming sensation throughout the procedure. Image Surgical Arts also uses the Pro-Nox system, which is a nitrous oxide based system to provide significant analgesia during your procedure. After your treatment, you can return to normal activities without the need for recovery time. Side effects are minimal and include slight swelling or redness. These symptoms should subside within 1-2 days.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Men and women who would like to address skin laxity as a result of aging, genetics or weight loss may want to consider GentleMax for a more aesthetically pleasing look. Dr. Harris or one of his expert staff will perform a full facial evaluation at your initial consultation to determine if GentleMax may be beneficial for you.
GentleMax can be used on any skin tone. However, active tanners will need to forego self-tanning 4-6 weeks prior to their treatment. Spray or artificial tanners can also have adverse effects on the outcome of the procedure.
