Why the Candela GentleMax Pro Dominates the Cosmetic Laser Scene

Posted on in Industry News by Zac

In the ever-evolving field of laser and cosmetic technology, conscientious dermatologists and clinic operators are always on the lookout for the best equipment and treatment types for their clientele. For many, the Candela GentleMax Pro is it! Known for its advanced dual-wavelength capability, impeccable safety record, and incredible versatility, this device has a well-earned reputation as a leading device in the cosmetic laser industry. In this article, we’ll look at the GentleMax Pro’s standout features, its most sought-after treatments, and what sets it apart in the market. 

Dual-Wavelength Technology: The Foundation of Flexibility

The Candela GentleMax Pro and other devices in Candela’s GentleMax series utilize a dual-wavelength system, combing 755 nm Alexandrite and 1065 nm Nd:YAG lasers, allows for tailored skin and hair removal treatments across different skin types and concerns. These dual wavelengths also mean this device can be used on a wider variety of patients; the 755nm wavelength is optimal for skin types I-III, while the 1065 wavelength works well on patients with skin types IV-VI.

The GentleMax Pro has multiple, large spot sizes, ranging from 1.5-24mm, allowing for fewer laser pulses, which guarantee faster treatments and greater patient comfort. The Gentlemax Pro also features short, 2ms pulse durations and high rates of repetition delivering those laser pulses, allowing for more precise treatment capabilities, and quicker treatment times. 

Safety: A Commitment to Patient Well-Being

As with other Candela equipment and devices, the Candela Gentlemax Pro is designed with the patient’s safety and comfort in mind. Along with controlled energy emissions to minimize risk, the GentleMax Pro protects patients with its Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD). The DCD synchronizes with each pulse of the laser, protecting the ensuring that the laser reaches the targeted treatment area without damaging the epidermis, so that the patient will remain safe while receiving treatment. 

Not only does the GentleMax Pro ensure patient safety, it prioritizes maximum comfort as well. Its design prioritizes the comfort of the person receiving treatment, resulting in a more pleasant treatment experience and higher overall patient satisfaction. Additionally, because of the advanced, streamlined technology of the GentleMax Pro’s fast, efficient pulse system, treatment sessions are both fast and effective, enhancing the overall appeal of the many procedures that can be performed with the GentleMax Pro. GentleMax Pro treatments have zero downtime, so that patients can return to their lives immediately afterward. While some treatments may result in minor redness and swelling, these effects generally dissipate within 24 hours. 

Versatility in Cosmetic Applications

Hair removal

When it comes to removing unwanted hair, the GentleMax Pro is the best in the business! It and Candela’s Pro Plus are the top hair removal laser devices in the United States.

This makes it suitable for all patient types, and ideal for anyone seeking to remove or reduce hair almost anywhere on the body, including the legs, arms, underarms, face, chest, back and bikini line. 

Permanent hair removal treatments usually take between 4 and 6 treatments, but some patients may require more. After each session, the person undergoing treatment will see that their hair is gradually growing finer and lighter in color.
