GentleMax™ Laser

GentleMax for laser hair removal in San Diego.

The Candela Gentle Max Laser is a versatile device that removes unwanted hair on the face and body, smooths cellulite, reduces stretch marks, tightens lax skin on the body, removes spider veins/broken capillaries, and lightens brown spots. GentleMax has been voted by doctors to be the best device currently available for laser hair removal.

This laser has multiple wavelengths that give Dr. Chang a great deal of flexibility for providing her clients with highly customized treatment. Besides direct results, it promotes the production of collagen for overall healthier and younger looking skin. The outcome is long-lasting with some clients reporting that the results have lasted for years.

The GentleMax Laser can:

  • Quickly remove unwanted hair from large areas of the body
  • Tighten, firm, and tone skin on the abdomen, knees, arms, and other areas of the body
  • Improve the appearance of cellulite

How does the GentleMax Laser work?

The GentleMax laser is non-invasive because it targets and heats only the areas to be treated, leaving the surrounding skin intact. For laser hair removal, hyperpigmentation, and broken capillaries, the laser light targets the pigment cells of the veins or the hair follicles. For skin tightening, the laser light heats the collagen under the surface, which causes the skin to contract and become firmer.

Who is a candidate for GentleMax Laser treatment?

If you have unwanted facial or body hair, cellulite, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, spider veins, or body areas that you wish to tighten without surgery, you are a potential candidate for the GentleMax laser.

Note, however, that the GentleMax works on most skin tones but not all hair colors when used for hair removal. Blonde, light red, white, and gray hair does not contain enough pigment for the procedure to work.

What can I expect from GentleMax Laser treatment?

The GentleMax laser is virtually painless. Dr. Chang will pass the device over the areas to be treated, and you will feel a mild sting like the snap of a rubber band. A topical anesthetic will be used to make the treatment more comfortable.

What does recovery from GentleMax Laser treatment require?

You need no down time after a GentleMax laser treatment, but there may be some slight redness and swelling for a few days.

How long do the results of the GentleMax Laser last?

The GentleMax laser offers the closest technology we have to permanent hair reduction. There is no 100% permanent technique, but a series of treatments will reduce hair growth significantly. What remains will be lighter and softer.

While the removal of spider veins, stretch marks, cellulite, and brown spots is permanent, these conditions can recur. The same is true of the results of body shaping. Proper diet and exercise or sun protection can help to avoid recurrences.

The GentleMax Laser is a state-of-the-art treatment for laser hair removal, hyperpigmentation, spider veins, and body shaping. Contact Beatitude in San Diego today to find out if GentleMax treatment is a good choice for you.

Patient Stories Dr. Chang has an eye for symmetry and aesthetics. I went in for a consultation to have fillers under my eyes. Instead I was educated on my facial anatomy. I agreed to some fillers in my forehead and cheeks instead and could not be more pleased with the outcome.
