The Candela GentleMax Pro (GMaxPro) system is a dual wavelength non-invasive long pulse laser treatment that is effective in treating different types of skin conditions. It provides the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface and is homogeneously absorbed in the skin.
In acne, laser or light based treatments exert their effects based on two mechanisms of action; destruction of P. acnes and destruction of sebaceous (oil-producing) glands. Long pulse lases are able to penetrate the skin deeply to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands and reduce inflammatory lesions in acne. It also can promote the healing process and collagen remodelling. This is key for long-term acne treatment, as it not only stops acne production and reduces the possibility of future inflammation; it also encourages recovery of the skin.
