proIt’s hard to be a woman especially with all the expectations in our society to look a certain way – We are expected to have a great body, flawless skin and to have visible hair in the underarms is just unacceptable. With proper diet, exercise and the right attitude, all these can be arranged.  Go to the gym or try Cohen to get that rockin’ body!  As for flawless skin and hair – that is where we come in!

 

Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic happen to have the so-called “Rolls Royce” of laser hair removal machines. GentleMax Pro is a combination of the fastest and most powerful 755 nm Alexandrite laser with the 1064 nm long pulse ND:YAG laser.  What this means is that we have Diode, Alexandrite and ND:Yag which provides us the capability to offer the best treatment for all Skin Types.

Syneron Candela, the maker of this machine, is after all the global leader in the medical aesthetic marketplace.  When you ask a non-biased dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon, they will tell you to go to a practice that offer different varieties of LASERs so you can find the one that is more suited for your hair and skin type.

Unlike other laser hair removal machines, GentleMax Pro has a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) that provides consistent, epidermal cooling and unparalleled comfort for the patients. DCD prepares skin for treatment by selectively spraying the upper layers (or epidermis) with a cooling burst of cryogen in adjustable spray/delay durations, milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD’s unique design provides excellent visibility throughout the entire process, is operator independent, and will provide the same epidermal protection no matter how fast the laser is fired. This balances the heat so there is not much discomfort.  With this amazing technology, there won’t be any need for cooling gel, which tends to be a little messy when doing Full Bikini or Brazilian and Legs.  Treatment for lower legs only takes about 30 minutes, including the spot test, which takes up around 3 to 5 minutes. Imagine, underarm laser only takes around 10 minutes?  You’re in and you can just go out to go about your merry ways.  Furthermore, the FDA has approved GentleMax Pro for permanent hair reduction.

 

Just to give an overview: Alexandrite also known as GenteLase is a very powerful near infrared laser hair removal machine for patients with lighter skin types I-III. These are Caucasians and Asians with very light skin tone. It has excellent pick up by melanin (skin and hair pigment), which makes it great for patients with lighter skin tones, but not a good option for those with darker skin.  Alexandrite laser provides quicker, safer and more effective results compared to other lasers with proper settings.  Since it has the shortest pulse duration (or cooking time), it can also effectively lase thinner or lighter pigmented hairs.

 

Long Pulse ND:Yag also known as GentleYag is an infrared laser that is most effective for patients with Skin Types IV-VI.  The principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis, the matching of light and pulse duration to obtain optimal effect on melanin without affecting the surrounding tissue.  Since it has a deeper wavelength, it goes straight to the melanin in the hair follicle without causing damage to the upper layer of the skin that also has melanin, for patients with darker skin type.  It is most comfortable compared to other lasers when treating patients with Skin Type IV-VI, which are Hispanics, Middle Eastern people and most Filipinos.

How is IPL different from Medical Lasers?

IPL (or Intense Pulsed Light) is actually not a laser.  It uses a broad spectrum of light unlike lasers like Diode, Alexandrite and ND:Yag that uses a single wavelength that effectively targets the melanin in our hair follicle.  This allows concentrated target to the hair bulb that is the life source of the hair.

 

What is the brand of choice by dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons?

Medical practitioners normally advise use of FDA approved machines.  Make sure to contact a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon who has access to different kinds of machines like medical grade diode, alexandrite and yag laser to give you the best option and treatment available.  When doing a treatment, make sure to request for a spot test.

 

How many sessions are required for permanent hair reduction?

Since the hair growth cycle comes in 3 phases – Anagen (active phase), Catagen (Stagnant) and Telogen (Shedding); And Laser can only effectively target hair in the Anagen or Active phase; Patients are advised to undergo a series of 6 to 8 sessions depending on hair and skin type.

 

There are also many variables to consider, such as hormones, color of hair, stress, pregnancy, menopause, illness, increased blood supply, birth control pills, medication and the like that can affect the outcome of the laser treatment.

 

What are the benefits of GentleMax Pro Laser Hair Removal?

Aside from permanent hair reduction, avoiding manual hair removal like plucking, shaving, waxing and epilating improves the over all appearance of the patient’s skin.  Patient appreciates improvement in color and texture since manual hair removal causes abrasion leading to discoloration and having a texture similar to that of a chicken’s skin.  One cannot put a price on a person’s overall well being and self improvement.
