Living in Florida means soaking up that sun and getting a great tan. Unfortunately, it can also mean ending up with sunspots. Floridians get more UV radiation than the rest of the U.S., greatly increasing their risk of developing sunspots. If you’ve got Floridian sunspots and you want to get rid of them, it’s time to try Candela GentleMax Pro laser treatments.

What Is the Candela GentleMax Pro Laser? How Does It Work?

The Candela GentleMax Pro is in the Gentle Pro series from Candela, a popular medical laser manufacturer. It’s well-known for high-quality treatment of sunspots of all sizes. With its dual-wavelength technology, it can provide safe and effective sunspot reduction with a single beam of laser energy.

The laser energy targets the pigment cells that make up sunspots. After these cells are removed, the skin heals, creating new healthy skin cells without any pigmentation issues. This gives patients clear, sunspot-free skin.

The GentleMax Pro is FDA-approved and can be used to treat patients of all skin types. The laser’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) makes the treatment more comfortable and prevents any damage to the area.

Do I Need a Consultation? What Should I Expect?

You’ll need a consultation to find out if Candela GentleMax Pro laser treatment is right for you. You’ll discuss your goals and concerns with a skin expert at Refresh Palm Beach. They’ll examine your sunspots, and they’ll also go over your medical records. This helps to avoid any complications.

Your skin expert will tell you about cost, preparation, the recommended number of sessions, aftercare, and more. You should definitely ask questions during the consultation, just so you get a better idea of what to expect during treatment.

What Happens During the Treatment Session?

Each sunspot-removal session will usually take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour; the exact duration will depend on the treatment area. Your skin will be cleaned, and you’ll be wearing protective eyewear. For optimal comfort, a topical anesthetic will be applied before starting your treatment.

After the treatment starts, the skin expert will use the laser handpiece to treat the sunspot with laser energy. This might feel like a rubber band snapping against your skin, but it’ll only be temporary. Once the laser treatment is finished, a cold compress or gel pack may be used to calm the skin.

What’s Recovery Like?

You can usually get back to your normal activities without a lot of downtime or recovery time. Your skin might look red and swollen, like you got a mild sunburn. This is only temporary and can go away after 24 hours.

You’ll need to avoid sun exposure and harsh cleansers for the first few days to let your skin properly heal.

To effectively remove Floridian sunspots, we recommend you undergo two to four treatment sessions. You’ll be amazed by your results!
