Our laser hair removal process eliminates the need for shaving – forever. The GentleMax Pro Plus Platform is Canada’s latest evolution in the #1 dermatologist-recommended brand for laser hair removal. Built on a foundation of over 20 years of clinically proven performance across all skin types, it is designed to exceed our patients’ expectations. Treatments with GentleMax Pro Plus Laser are quick & virtually painless. The Syneron-Candela GentleMax Pro Plus laser is a Gold Standard laser that consists of a dual platform, making the laser treatment safe for all skin types.
GentleMax Pro laser removal was carried out by means of the 755 nm alexandrite laser of the Syneron-Candela GentleLase Pro system, which is the one of the fastest and most powerful lasers currently available, as well as using the equally high-powered 1064 nm Nd: Yag laser of the Gentle Yag Pro system. On the top of the proven performance, reliability and ease of use we’ve come to trust in GentleMax Pro, GentleMax Pro Plus has added increased fluences up to 38% more than its predecessors.

How can I prepare for my GentleMax Pro Plus Laser hair removal session?
An important note before each GentleMax Pro Plus laser hair removal treatment is to shave the targeted area(s) 24-48 hours before your appointment. Avoid the use of any lotions, deodorant, makeup, or cosmetics on the skin to allow for better results.
How many GentleMax Pro Plus Laser hair removal treatments will I require?
The number of GentleMax Pro Plus laser hair removal treatments you will require depends on the area to be treated, the coarseness of the hair as well as the pigment of the skin and hair. Treatment areas such as the legs, bikini area and under-arms could take 6 or more GentleMax Pro Plus laser hair removal treatments. Other more hormonal areas could require 8 or more treatments. Candela GentleMax Pro Plus Laser hair removal interval sessions are usually 4-6 weeks apart to effectively reduce hair growth. During your GentleMax Pro Plus laser hair removal journey at LMC, your laser technician will keep you updated on how many more sessions you will need and your ongoing progress.

What are the possible side effects of GentleMax Pro Plus laser hair removal?
The most common side effects of laser hair removal include:
Skin irritation: There may be temporary discomfort, redness and swelling evident in the treatment area. Any signs and symptoms typically disappear within several hours. To reduce any discomfort, apply ice to the treated area. If you have a skin reaction immediately after laser hair removal, immediately contact our office.
Pigment changes: Laser hair removal can potentially darken or lighten the affected treatment area. These pigment changes can be temporary or even permanent. Skin lightening primarily affects those who don’t avoid sun exposure before or after treatment and those who have darker skin.
Prevention is key! In order to minimize the risk of pigment changes, ensure to avoid sunlight exposure after laser hair removal and between scheduled treatments. Additionally, avoid tanning beds for a minimum of six weeks. Use a broad-spectrum 30 SPF sunscreen daily.
Rarely, laser hair removal can also cause blistering, crusting, scarring or skin texture changes. Other rare side effects include graying of treated hair or paradoxical hair growth around the treated areas, particularly on darker skin types.
How many times do I have to come back for GentleMax Pro Plus Laser hair removal treatments?
No two clients are the same in terms of being able to give them a definite number of necessary GentleMax Pro Plus laser hair removal treatments. It depends on: your age, hair type and the area to be treated. Some clients require 6 treatments, whereas others may need 9 or more. On average, about 80 per cent hair reduction is achieved after 6 visits. You should also know: there may be reduced hair growth for several weeks after treatment. Then you’ll experience new regrowth in certain areas and during this stage, another treatment is required.
How do I best prepare for my upcoming GentleMax Pro Plus laser hair removal appointment?
You should avoid electrolysis, waxing, or plucking, six weeks prior to your laser hair removal treatment. Your skin should be clean-shaven and clean from creams, oils, makeup, self-tanning products, or topical anesthetics, on the day of your hair removal treatment.
Prior to and immediately after your treatment, you should avoid tanning beds or sunlight and apply sunscreen (SPF 30 or above). Please refer to and follow the instructions within our pre-care & post-care instruction guide.
What does ater-care consist of for GentleMax Pro Plus Laser Hair Removal treatment?
After your GentleMax Pro Plus laser hair removal treatment, you may experience redness or swelling on the area treated that typically goes away after a few hours, depending on the reaction. Within several hours or days after the treatment, these side effects will vanish. After each session:
● Avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks following the treatment
● Every day, apply sunscreen with SPF30 to the treated area(s)
● Avoid sauna use, hot baths/showers or active exercise until the redness is gone
● Do not scratch, tweeze, wax, or pluck the area. Shaving only!G
