About the Candela GentleMax Pro Laser
The GentleMax Pro Laser Facial is a non-surgical, light energy-based procedure that uses specific wavelengths suitable for every skin type to precisely target pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, and skin tightening. The specificity of the Gentlemax Pro laser allows for deeper penetration and achieves faster results when compared to popular IPL photo facials which utilizes non-specific wavelengths of light, not suitable for every skin type.
This laser also can treat small broken blood vessels, called spider veins, which often are found on the face and legs and branch to become visible through the skin. Caused by factors, like age, surgery, and genetics, spider veins (telangiectasias) can be blue, red, and purple in color, making their appearance difficult to hide for many Palm Beach, FL men and women. Since these unattractive veins typically multiply, becoming more noticeable over time, it is important to seek help when they first appear. Experienced facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jaimie DeRosa and her team utilize the innovative Candela GentleMax Pro laser to reduce the appearance of broken blood vessels and other pigmented lesions on the face and body. This advanced dual-wavelength laser technology works quickly to gently minimize the appearance of spider veins, skin lesions, and even facial wrinkles. At your initial consultation, one of the DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery providers will talk with you about your aesthetic concerns and design a laser lesion or vein treatment strategy to help you look and feel your absolute best.
"Jaimie, Thank you so much for inviting me to the DeRosa Clinic. It was truly the BEST facial I have ever received. I also felt so welcomed by you and your team. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. I look forward to the next time I will get to see you! I am so inspired by what you have created and I look forward to celebrating your success as you expand your business! Wishing you have the happiest holiday season! With love,"- Anonymous / Office Visit / Sep 14, 2018
"I just had my initial consultation with Dr DeRosa and was very satisfied, after having seen two or three other facial, plastic surgeons prior. I was highly impressed with her passion, obvious skill and competency. In today's high volume, fast paced, often automaton medical world, her reassuring and gentle manner, after my recent facial trauma, was certainly refreshing, as well as her thoroughness in explaining her proposed treatment plan and followup visits . I will definitely be returning for my continued recovery from my facial injury. I highly recommend her services to the Palm Beach community as I am sure her new office in Palm Beach will be booming and successful for years to come."- M.D. / Google / Mar 15, 2020
"I went today for a consultation with Doc Derosa and was pleasantly surprised. Doctor Derosa talked me through what I wanted and suggested that I go a less invasive route on account of my skin and how it would take the treatment I originally wanted. She could not have been any more honest or friendly!! I am going back in two weeks to see the esthetician :o) I didn't catch the lady at the front desk's name, but she was also super friendly and professional!!"- A.B. / Yelp / Mar 05, 2020
"The DeRosa clinic is one of my favorite spots in Boston. I schedule visits around Dr. DeRosa and lead aesthetician, Steven Giannetta’s availability. The practice is located centrally on Newbury Street in the heart of Back Bay. The experience is pleasant and effortless from ease of communication with appointment schedulers to greeting when you walk through the doors. The office is gorgeous with natural light shining through the lobby front windows and meticulously kept modern and spacious treatment rooms. Dr. Derosa’s hallmark is enhancement with emphasis on a natural aesthetic. I never feel rushed when speaking with her and that holds true with the rest of her team. Each member of the team shares an attitude of professionalism, excellence and compassion. Although there is not a treatment I have not liked, I am personally obsessed with dermaplanning and the Vi peel. My only complaint is not having a DeRosa clinic in New York...yet."- E.M. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"Dr Derosa did an incredible job on my daughter... we specifically chose her because my daughter had breathing difficulties and we wanted someone double board certified. We met her after interviewing 3 other surgeons... and we adored her immediately. The night before surgery I saw the negative reviews she has gotten and it made me very nervous... but then I remembered that the percentage was tiny in comparison to all the surgeries she has performed. She knew exactly how to calm my daughter. We are now a week out of our surgery and all I can say is she was amazing. The nursing staff raved about her at Mass Eye and Ear...she listened to us and changed as little as possible. My daughter is thrilled and we are too...she is a true artist. We are thankful to all the lovely staff too."- A.H. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2020
GentleMax Pro nonsurgical laser vein reduction treatments may improve the appearance of small or mid-sized blood vessels on the face, chest, back of the legs, thighs, calves, and ankles. While these blood vessels typically are not a medical issue, their presence may lead some individuals to feel self-conscious.
At DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery, we also use the GentleMax Pro laser to treat facial wrinkles and minimize the look of skin lesions, including hyperpigmentation, rosacea, overall redness, and freckles. Laser vein removal and laser treatment for wrinkles and skin lesions may be an excellent option for patients who are in good overall health, do not have blood clots, and are not pregnant.
Nonsurgical lesion and vein removal treatments are performed at our state-of-the-art Palm Beach, FL DeRosa Clinic facility. Treatment sessions generally only take about 20 – 40 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being addressed. When you arrive for your lesion removal or laser vein procedure, we will situate you comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms before cleaning and preparing your skin. If requested, a topical numbing cream may be applied pre-treatment to minimize any discomfort. The GentleMax Pro laser will then be passed over the skin slowly and precisely so the energy can gently target the skin lesion or blood vessels without impacting surrounding tissue. The tissue absorbs the laser energy, which closes the wall of the vessel and diminishes the appearance of hyperpigmented areas or wrinkles. When your treatment is completed, you are free to leave our office immediately and resume your regular daily activities.
What to Expect
Following your GentleMax Pro laser vein removal or lesion treatment session, you may have bruising, swelling, and redness, but these side effects should dissipate in around 1 – 2 weeks. For quicker healing, compression or support garments may be worn to encourage blood circulation. It is important to avoid prolonged exposure to UV and to apply sunscreen frequently and liberally to areas that have been treated. While some individuals notice improvements soon after their initial treatment, generally within 4 – 6 weeks, results will vary for every patient and may take a series of sessions to reach targeted results. In your consultation with Dr. DeRosa or Jessica Zalutko, PA-C, realistic expectations will be reviewed, including the potential number of visits necessary to achieve your ideal outcome. New spider veins or re-pigmentation of lesions might develop in time, which may be maintained with follow-up treatments performed every few years.
