Eliminate Unwanted Hair with Fewer Treatment Sessions with the GentleMax Pro® at Fox Vein Experts!
Unwanted hair is a nearly universal problem. While some people choose to manage it with daily practices like shaving and tweezing, these practices are only short-term solutions to the problem of excess hair. At Fox Vein Experts, we’re proud to offer our patients a better, longer-lasting alternative — laser hair removal with the GentleMax Pro® laser.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most convenient and long-lasting ways to eliminate unwanted hair available today. And at Fox Vein Experts, we offer our clients laser hair removal treatment using one of the most effective and gentle machines available on the market today — the GentleMax Pro®. This machine allows Dr. Susan Fox to deliver customized treatments that provide patients with the results they want without the downtime or discomfort that they don’t.
How Does it Work?
During a laser hair removal treatment with the GentleMax Pro®, dual wavelength technology is directed at the patient’s target treatment area. This machine delivers direct bursts of laser energy to the skin, passing through its uppermost layers and targeting the follicles. As the follicles absorb this energy, they begin to rupture. If this rupturing is complete enough, the follicle can no longer produce hair. Over a series of treatments, all the follicles in an area are ruptured, halting hair growth and leaving the surface of the skin smooth and hair-free.
Because this machine delivers quick, powerful bursts of laser energy to the skin, it involves a significantly shorter period of downtime or discomfort than other laser hair removal procedures. While most patients experience some degree of redness or swelling, this usually fades within a few hours of receiving treatment.
The GentleMax Pro® laser is so quick and effective that it also decreases the number of treatments patients must undergo to see significant results. Typically, between four and six sessions over a 12-month period are necessary to get dramatic hair loss results.
Am I a Candidate for Treatment?
Nearly anyone interested in removing unwanted hair from their body is a potential candidate for a laser hair removal treatment with the GentleMax Pro®. This technology can be used to treat patients of all skin tones, even those with darker skin that have been historically difficult to perform laser hair removal on.
