The leading technology in laser hair removal

At Skin Secrets, we use the leading technology in laser hair removal and pigmented lesion treatments. The GentleMax Pro is a single consolidated system that delivers a range of treatments for all skin types. Laser hair removal treatment uses pulses of highly concentrated light emitted from the laser into the hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles absorb the light and are subsequently destroyed.

The dual wavelength of the GentleMax Pro allows for treatment of various spot sizes and the unique dynamic skin cooling system provides more comfort, added protection, and allows the procedure to be completed more efficiently.

More than Hair Removal

In addition to hair removal, the GentleMax Pro laser treatment can treat various other skin indications including pigment and vascular lesions, leg veins, wrinkles, and much more. Most treatments will only take up to 6 sessions before your skin is clear, healed, and you have the freedom to show your skin with confidence.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

As simple as just “zapping” undated hair seems, laser hair removal is much more than that. It is a medical procedure that requires training to preform. Prior to undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for at least six weeks before treatment. The laser will target the hairs’ roots which are temporarily removed during waxing and plucking. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications more likely. It’s important to avoid sun exposure for six weeks leading up to treatment as well as the six weeks following your treatment.

The Benefits

Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.

Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions. This means the hair you’ve had removed will likely never return.

Fine lines and wrinkles are a product of aging. Lines around the mouth and eyes are great targets for laser skin treatment. By softening these tell-tale signs of aging, you’ll not only look younger, but your skin will look healthier and smoother.

Spots and discoloration may be due to sun exposure, aging, or problems with skin pigmentation. Some patients also choose to remove unwanted freckles. By eliminating brown spots and correcting skin pigmentation, you’ll have a more even, balanced skin tone.

Sometimes referred to as broken capillaries or spider veins, prominent blood vessels are unwanted blemishes usually caused by sun exposure, skin irritations, or other factors such as hormones or alcoholism. These spider veins can often be removed in one or two sessions.

What to Expect

Right before the procedure, your hair that will be undergoing treatment will need to be trimmed to only a few millimeters above the skin surface. Next, the laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.

You and the technician will need to wear appropriate eye protection. It is also necessary that the outer layers of your skin are protected with a cold gel or special cooling device that will also help the laser light penetrate the skin.

Next, the technician will give a pulse of light to the treatment area. The technician will watch the area for several minutes to make sure they have the best settings and will check for any abnormal reactions.

Once the procedure is completed, you may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory lotions, or cold water to ease any discomfort. You’ll need to make sure to schedule your next treatment four to six weeks later. You can continue to get treatments until unwanted hair stops growing.
