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.

"Beyond pleased with Dr. DeRosa and her team! From the initial consultation to the surgery and beyond. My daughter had otoplasty and the whole it was a very easy experience and she is very pleased with the outcome. Dr. DeRosa was able to answer all my and my daughter’s questions thoroughly and kept her at ease the whole time. It is so convenient that they are able to do the surgery right in the office without needing to go to a hospital, especially now with the hospitals so crowded.The whole staff is terrific, there were no wait times for appointments, everything was done efficiently, but we never felt rushed.If you are looking to have your skin feel rejuvenated I have also been to the clinic for a facial and highly recommend the experience. Both my daughter and I highly recommend Dr. DeRosa and the whole staff at the DeRosa Clinic."- M.O. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"I am here to preach the gospel of the DeRosa Clinic.My story: I moved to Boston for graduate school, and I asked my esteemed SF-based doctor for a recommendation in the Boston area, and he directed me to Dr. DeRosa. I now live in Washington, DC, and I trust Dr. DeRosa so much that I called her office for dermatologist contacts in DC. How I wish I still lived in Boston so I could continue seeing Dr. DeRosa!My experience: Walking into the DeRosa clinic was like getting a much welcome dose of sunshine. The women staffing the front desk were always extremely warm and welcoming. Being so far from home, I felt well attended to and well taken care of. As I write this, I miss them so much!Dr. DeRosa was beyond fantastic. She not only addressed every concern of mine, no matter how trivial (eg, the tiniest skin irritation), but she did so with aplomb, grace, and vivacity. And I mean what I say. Dr. DeRosa was not only an extremely skilled doctor, but she was also unbelievably charismatic and caring. I left her offices, not only with my health concerns addressed, but with Soul Cycle class recommendations and networking tips!On-site, Dr. DeRosa also has the most skilled aesthetician. I literally would go from Dr. DeRosa’s office, where she would pinpoint a skin issue, to the room next door, where an aesthetician would perform a rejuvenating facial. I would look at my skin the next day, and it would look brand-spanking new. I don’t think anyone can compete with that.I now live in Washington, DC for work, and I must confess, I miss Dr. DeRosa, her staff, and the office IMMENSELY. For those of you who are close enough to be able to have De. DeRosa as your doctor, you couldn’t be more lucky!"- A.P. / Yelp / Jan 08, 2021
"Dr.DeRosa is a fantastic surgeon with an amazing stuff. All procedures I have done in the office have been very successful and achieved the best results. Would highly recommend the office."- K.K. / Yelp / Dec 30, 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 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.
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.
