Love Your Skin Again
Maintaining your skin can be a lot of work. Shaving is a hassle with razor burn and ingrown hairs, and waxing can get expensive for a temporary solution to going hair-free. Your skin may also take damage from conditions like rosacea, spider veins, loosening from aging, or hyperpigmentation from scars or sun exposure, making you feel like a stranger in your body. The experts at Quinn Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center offer Candela GentleMax Pro Laser in Kansas City to help you erase complexion imperfections, eliminate unwanted body hair, and even tighten and rejuvenate your skin overall.
Innovation That Rejuvenates
Candela GentleMax Pro is a laser device used to get rid of unwanted body hair and many common skin blemishes. Two different types of lasers are combined in the machine. The 755nm Alexandrite laser is used for quick treatment of thinner or more widespread areas of skin. The 1064nm ND:Yag laser is used for thicker skin and hair removal in more concentrated spots. The laser works by breaking down melanin in the cells and heating up hair follicles to prevent any future growth.
Bye-Bye Razor Burn
Not only is the Candela GentleMax Pro FDA-approved, but it is also considered one of the best options on the market for laser hair removal and laser-treated skin issues. For hair removal, you should experience a drastic and lasting reduction in the amount and texture of hair after six to eight visits. The Candela laser is also effective for reducing the appearance of spider veins, rosacea, and other sources of unwanted pigmentation, as well as providing general skin rejuvenation and tightening lax or sagging skin.
Everyone Should Feel Beautiful
Since it contains two types of lasers, Candela GentleMax Pro can be adjusted for use by almost anyone. The laser may not be as effective for hair removal if your hair is very light in color, since the laser must have enough pigment to hold onto. If you are pregnant, taking medication, or have tattoos, it is best to consult with a professional before deciding to get this treatment.
What To Expect
Before you go in for your Kansas City Candela laser treatment, you may be asked to shave and avoid applying lotions or fragrances to the skin. When you arrive, you will be given goggles to wear for eye protection. One of our specialists will then administer the laser to the treatment area. For smaller areas, this could take just a few minutes. However, if the site is a bigger area of skin, it may take longer.
It’s Worth It
For a few hours after the treatment, your skin may be red around the treated site. It is not uncommon for the area to feel a little bit sore for a few hours as well, but this can be combated by applying a cool compress. If you are using the Candela laser for hair removal, you can expect to see the hairs in the treated area fall out over time. Always avoid direct sunlight for the first few weeks after treatment, and apply sunblock or SPF lotion daily to protect your healing skin and get the best results.
Following a hair removal treatment, hair may fall out for a few weeks after each appointment and grow back lighter and thinner until the next visit. For spider vein treatments, visible veins should disappear immediately after treatment, though rosacea or other skin imperfections may take two appointments to reach optimal results. While results are not immediate, they are almost all permanent, meaning you won’t ever have to worry about these pesky problems again!
