Revive Skin Solutions also uses The Gold Standard Gentle Hair Removal™, the GentleMax Pro®. This state-of-the-art machine is one of the most trusted and highly requested laser treatment machines on the market. It is one of the first to provide a dual wavelength laser platform that has both the fastest & most powerful 755nm Alexandrite laser with the 1064nm Nd:YAG laser for high performance treatment capabilities in terms of ease-of-use, outstanding performance, speed, efficacy, safety, and patient satisfaction.
You should avoid exposure to the sun for at least 14 days prior to treatment. Avoid waxing, plucking, electrolysis, or bleaching for at least 4 to 6 weeks prior & after to your treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, we may prescribe prophylactic antiviral therapy. Your skin should be clean, shaven, and free of creams, oils, makeup, tanning products, etc. Wait until your skin tan has faded before starting your treatment.
The number of sessions you’ll need and the time it takes depends on the color and type of your hair, the body area being treated, and your specific skin tone. Laser hair removal will require multiple sessions, whereas others may need as little as one session.
Laser treatment procedures have been performed safely for many years. Side effects may include, but usually do not last more than a few days: swelling, hyperpigmentation, redness, hypopigmentation, purpura, and blistering.
At Revive Skin Solutions, we use Candela’s GentleMax Pro, which has a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™). DCD is there to make sure your treatment is as comfortable and effective as can be. Some may feel a slight discomfort, almost as if someone is snapping a rubber band on your skin. However, the DCD prepares you for the treatment by spraying a cool burst of cryogen, milliseconds before the laser pulse, on the upper layer of your skin to provide cooling.
Hair growth will reduce after each laser hair appointment; however, you will see results after you finish your first appointment.
If you are pregnant or nursing, you should not proceed with laser treatment. Unlike other machines, at Revive Skin Solutions, we use Syneron Candela’s GentleMax Pro, which can treat all skin types/colors.
Make sure to avoid exposure to the sun and use SPF 30 sunblock or above. For the first few days, do not rinse or scrub the area with harsh skin cleansers.
Since these are cosmetic procedures, most insurance carriers will not offer reimbursement. However, some insurance companies will cover treatments if they are for disfiguring birthmarks like hemangiomas.
What an amazing experience! Emmy is so professional and made me feel so comfortable! I cannot wait until I don't have to shave anymore!! I am a perfectionist and researched the best machines out there. She uses a state of the art machine. I'm so happy with my results, and I will always recommend Revive Skin Solutions to everyone. Thanks again Emmy!!
Emmy did a wonderful job on my laser hair removal. Compared to other places I've tried in the past, my experience here was WAAAY different. First off, her machine is more advanced than 'the other guys.' Secondly, she was very professional about the entire procedure. She made sure I was comfortable and relaxed the entire time. After just one session, I began to see results. I noticed that after a week my hair did not grow back. I would definitely recommend Emmy and Revive Skin Solutions to anyone who is looking to get laser hair removal.
Emmy is amazing! After just one treatment, I've seen amazing results. I've been spending so much money on waxing, razers, and fancy shave creams all these years....total waste! Her pricing is very competitive and super fair! Virtually pain-free and no post pain or redness...best of all, NO INGROWNS! Revive uses the best lasers....I'm addicted and will most likely never shave again, as legs are next! Thanks Emmy!!!!
