SKIN REJUVENATION with GentleMax Pro®

 

At The Mews Laser & Skin Clinic, we are proud to offer the GentleMax Pro® laser, an effective way to tighten the skin and remove spots and skin discolorations. Safe on any skin type, the GentleMax Pro® combines two fast and powerful lasers: the Alexandrite for pigment removal on lighter skin tones and the nd-YAG for skin tightening on all skin types.

The dual wavelength GMax Pro helps smooth wrinkles by stimulating and increasing collagen production under the surface of the skin. An overall improvement in skin texture, skin tone and pore size can be expected after a series of treatments. Photo rejuvenation can also remove unwanted brown spots and freckles resulting from sun damage, age and hormones, as well as make small facial blood vessels disappear from the skin's surface.
