GentleMAX by Candela is a new machine that combines alex and Yag machines for light and dark types into one. They may want to look into it instead.


I was just going to ask about GentleMAX! Candela is of course doing a lot of bragging about this combo machine. Know anyone who has had enough of an experience with it to tell about results? I live in Chicago and can't find any nearby practitioners on their search function who use one of these machines. Maybe clinics are waiting to drop the dough until it's a little more road tested. I Think i'm a decent GenleLase candidate so perhaps I won't try and hold out until I find a place that has this new unit.

Candela's GentleLASE and GentleYAG are some of the best on the market. GentleMAX is basically a combination of the two. So it's just as good. They just offer clinics the ability to buy one machine for both light- and dark-skinned patients with this model. If you're light enough for GentleLASE, there is no reason to look for GentleMAX.

Apogee Elite by Cynosure offers the same combo. They also have the new MPX model.

Just to add in the list: Soprano XL - a.k.a "Pain-free, hair-free laser machine" I believe it is one of the latest and high-end type of machine. Others call it 'The Maserati of Laser Hair Removal'.

There's another one for IPL - The PhotoNova PLS3 system was designed by the Swedish guys who started the whole IPL/hair removal technology back in the early 1990&#8242;s.:)

I had Candela GentleMAX removal on my face about 5 years ago (dark, coarse hairs from PCOS). In four treatments, it removed 100% of the really dark coarse hairs, and I don't believe they ever grew back (I have a couple now, but I think they're new hairs because I switched birth control pills a couple of times when they popped up). The medium-brown slightly finer hairs almost completely disappeared. I still have a few coarse blondish or colorless ones that I pluck because they feel stubbly (but they're invisible). All in all, I was thrilled with the results and would highly recommend it to anyone with my skin type, which is... actually, I'm not sure. Because I avoid the sun/wear sunscreen now, I'm very fair with dark body hair. But before I started doing that, I tanned extremely easy and rarely burned, which sounds like type V. Hope this helps!

Part two of rachard's post should have included advice as to what one should do after laser reduction . Part two would have been the recommendation that electrolysis should be considered for the remaining light hair. Do you mention electrolysis to your clients as well, rachard?

You can go check them out. If she mentioned certain business, then they must all be worthy of consideration.
