GentleMax for Laser Hair Removal

In my office, we have had great success with the GentleMAX laser by Candela for Laser Hair Removal. It has both the Alexandrite laser an well as the Nd/Yag Laser so there are effective treatment options for most skin colors. If you are concerned about it's effect on the darker skin in that area, ask them to do several test spots first to see its effect on your skin.
