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 Center 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.

Ideal Candidates

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 Center 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.

Procedure Technique

Nonsurgical lesion and vein removal treatments are performed at our state-of-the-art Palm Beach, FL DeRosa Center 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.
