Laser Hair Removal
What is GentleMaxPro?
GentleMaxPro, is a revolutionary technology in hair removal. The motion of GentleMaxPro technology allows for extremely even heating of hair follicles that minimizes missed areas that occur with traditional hair removal devices. By sending multiple low-fluence pulses at a high repetition rate, GentleMaxPro provides a treatment that is safe, fast, efficacious, and comfortable. Pulsed light delivers photothermal energy to hair follicles; The rapid, short pulses of light cause the hair follicle to stop producing hair without harming any surrounding tissue.
What areas can GentleMaxPro Treat?
The most common areas that are treated with Forever Bare BBL are:
- Under Arms
- Full Arms
- Bikini Area
What to expect during my GentleMaxPro Treatment
During your procedure, a clear gel will be applied to the skin. Then, your treatment provider will apply a cooling applicator in which laser energy is delivered. During the treatment, some patients experience a warm or stinging sensation in the treatment area. For your safety, your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. The treatment time varies depending on the size of the area being treated, your individual hair, and your skin type.

Is the GentleMaxPro laser treatment painful?
GentleMaxPro treatments are comfortable and safe to the skin and personal sensitivity varies from patient to patient. A cooling system soothes the skin, so the treatment is delivered with minimal to no discomfort.
After My GentleMaxPro Treatment
Immediately following your treatment, you may experience some redness that should go away within a few hours. There is virtually no downtime, and in most cases, you may resume your normal daily activities immediately. A few days to a week after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Most of these hairs are actually being shed as a result of your GentleMaxPro treatment and are not growing back. Minimal aftercare is needed. We ask that you keep the treated area clean and use a sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 when outdoors.
How many laser hair removal Treatments will I need?
Most areas require 3-5 treatments applied at 4-6 week intervals to achieve optimal benefit. Long-term results depend on multiple factors such as hair thickness, the area treated and the hair’s growth cycle. Hair grows in three stages: anagen, catagen, and telogen. Forever Bare BBL predominantly treats hairs in the anagen phase, also known as the active growth phase. Since not all hairs are in the same growth stage at the same time, multiple treatments are necessary to target all hair in the treatment site.
