Unwanted facial and body hair no longer has to be an embarrassment. The GentleMax Pro removal process is easy, requiring no creams or gel, no pre-treatment waxing and no needles. Patients may shave prior to treatment and do not need to let their hair grow. GentleMax Pro laser treatments are a safe, fast, and effective method, treating hair follicles in a fraction of the time of other methods, using the gentle power of laser light. The GentleMax Pro system, a revolutionary Alexandrite laser emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. The skin is further protected during treatment by a Dynamic Cooling Device in which cryogen is sprayed onto the skin cooling the upper layers and providing patients with increased comfort.
Microdermabrasion is a skin-exfoliating and refining process that vacuums the skin with micro-fine sodium bicarbonate crystals, smoothing raised lesions and bumps, and eliminating cell buildup. The process removes the superficial layers of skin, leaving it smooth and fresh, while promoting new collagen growth. Unlike chemical peels, which utilize acids, microdermabrasion is a mechanical process of skin exfoliation. The technique is helpful for anyone, for the acne-prone to the wrinkle sufferer, and its long-term benefits are plentiful: increased firmness, more even skin tone, minimized pores, and reduced pigment marks and scars. Acne patients have benefited from Beta-Lift peels in conjunction with Microdermabrasion.
Another weapon in the war against signs of aging skin is the beta-hydroxy acid peel. The light peel uses salicylic acid to unclog pores, clear up acne and, when performed in a series of three or four treatments, softens fine lines around the eyes and lightens brown spots. Beta-Lift has been beneficial in improving dermatological conditions of acne, rosacea, and melasma. Even acne scars and enlarged pores may become less noticeable.
