GentleMax Pro® Series Laser

The GentleMax Pro™ is the gold standard for effective hair removal in all skin types, as it incorporates both the Alexandrite and Nd:YAG lasers in one machine. The GentleMax Pro™ excels in providing safe, high speed, effective laser hair removal with high patient satisfaction and comfort. Typically, permanent hair removal requires 6-8 treatments, but some patients require more. The fee for hair removal depends on the size of the area, and we are happy to provide you with more information upon request.

More information on lasers for Hair Removal:
Lasers work exceptionally well for permanent hair reduction.  As long as there is colour (melanin) in the hair follicle, it can be destroyed by a laser.

Lasers have exact wavelengths which are measured in nanometres. Different wavelengths destroy different chromosphores.  When treating for Hair Removal – the gold standard in Lasers is the Alexandrite Laser – at 755nm, it is scientifically proven to be the most highly absorbed wavelength by melanin.  Most Dermatologists in South Africa use and recommend Alexandrite Lasers for hair removal.

To achieve hair removal on darker skin types - the Nd:YAG laser is recommended. It has a much longer wavelength (1064nm) and as it is less absorbed by melanin, it is safer to use on darker skin types.  

To achieve hair removal on darker skin types - the Nd:YAG laser is recommended. It has a much longer wavelength (1064nm) and as it is less absorbed by melanin, it is safer to use on darker skin types.  

Due to the fact that Lasers are so targeted – they allow for a deeper more precise treatment without compromising the surrounding skin.

The difference between a laser and an IPL is that an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is not of a specific wavelength but rather a band of light targeting somewhere between x and y; it offers a more “hit and miss” treatment. The energy output of an IPL is generally not strong enough to destroy a hair follicle but is capable of weakening it.  The risk of burning and pigmentation increases due to an IPL machine being less predictable on the skin. Laser hair removal is usually more expensive per session than an IPL treatment but as laser is far more effective, far fewer treatments are required. We do not recommend IPL for hair removal.

Typically, 6-8 treatments are necessary to achieve Permanent Hair Reduction with a laser. This is because hair grows in cycles, and only the follicles that are in an active growth stage at the time of the treatment are eliminated. So, your next appointment will be scheduled to coincide with the next active growth stage (about 4-6 weeks later). Many factors such as hormones, age, ethnicity, weight, metabolism, and medication influence the body's hair growth. Further, because each person is unique, not all hair and skin types are the same, thus results may differ from one individual to another.

DermaFrac™

Take dermal infusion to a level unprecedented with the DermaFrac™ system that combines several proven modalities. Customize & combine microdermabrasion, micro-channelling with simultaneous infusion of high grade serums and LED therapy for optimum results.

A precision controlled hand piece containing the micro-needle roller tip cap and a cartridge of the particular serum of choice is moved across the skin increasing collagen and fibroblast activity. The vacuum gently pulls the skin into contact with hundreds of micro-needles that painlessly penetrate through the epidermis and into the upper dermis (papillary dermis). The channels created act as pathways for the delivery of the serums to the all-important upper dermis.

The depths of the needles are carefully selected so that the channels are created just below the dermal-epidermal (DE) junction and just above the capillaries and nerve endings. This ensures no pain or bleeding - a definite perk for those with sensitive skin, or not looking at any downtime.

In addition to the advanced serum delivery and natural stimulation of collagen and fibroblasts the DermaFrac™ system offers microdermabrasion for increase in epidermal thickness as well as high energy LED therapy.

SERUMS

CLARIFY

The clarify Solution features to key active ingredients. Salicylic acid opens clogged pores and neutralizes bacteria within the pores. It reduces pore blockages and breakouts on the skin. Lactic acid, part of the alpha hydroxyl acid family, exfoliates the outer layer of skin and increases collagen production to minimise fine lines, wrinkles, reduce blackheads and whiteheads.

HYDRATE

This serum uses Hyaluronic acid to form a fully hydrated layer that helps guarantee that water is delivered into deeper layers of skin. It also delivers intense hydration to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin A will accelerate cell turnover and stimulate the formation of new skin, and Vitamin E for UV resistance. Antioxidants include green tea, white tea and grape seed to calm the nerve.

REJUVENATE

This serum has five active ingredients that stimulate fibroblast and collagen production in the skin. They also help relax muscles to prevent wrinkling from repeated muscle movement.

LIGHTEN

This serum uses Kojic acid to lighten skin by suppressing melanocyte activity and pigmentation. It also has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
