Finding the right treatment to combat adolescent or adult acne can be extremely and in the meantime sufferers often struggle with controlling outbreaks and appearance of acne. The Candela GentleMax Pro for acne treatment can reduce outbreaks and repair skin without drying chemicals and expensive medications.

How it works?

Using a combination of laser wavelengths, the Candela GentleMax Pro laser reduces the amount of surface bacteria on the skin preventing the clogging and buildup of oil in the pores. The lasers energy also penetrates the skin to kill bacteria deep inside the root of the pore, reducing the likelihood of acne formation. An added benefit of laser acne therapy is its ability to fade acne scarring and discoloration, making it a dual acne treatment.

Summer days gardening or relaxing on the beach leave fond memories, unfortunately it can also cause permanent redness, thankfully there is a treatment designed to diffuse redness. Candela GentleMax Pro for redness and rosacea can treat the redness leaving skin bright and even.

GentleMax Pro can also treat skin conditions that cause redness or flushing of the skin, rosacea is the most of these skin conditions. GentleMax laser therapy treats the underlying cause reducing symptoms and helping sufferers manage.

How does it work?

Redness and rosacea occur when the tiny blood vessels in the skin dilate and remain dilated. The Candela GentleMax Pro laser targets the dilated vessels causing them to contract, and breakdown. The redness then dissipates and skin is left with increased clarity and balance.

The treatment is also effective on sun damage, hyperpigmentation and several other skin conditions.

With age comes wisdom and experience which are great, unfortunately spider veins, vascular lesions and varicose veins are also a sign of age. Candela GentleMax Pro can target and eliminate veins and vascular lesions resulting in more youthful, bright and radiant skin. Candela GentleMax Pro is safe for men and women and can be used on the face and legs to rid you of unwanted veins.

How does it work?

Whether it’s a spider vein on your nose or a varicose vein on your leg, Candela GentleMax Pro uses laser technology to deliver targeted laser energy into the vein/vascular lesion permanently destroying it.

The GentleMax Pro is non-invasive and completely safe for surrounding skin and tissue because it incorporates a unique cooling technology designed to protect the outer skin from overheating, or laser burn.

Soaking up the sun feels great but can often lead to the appearance of sunspots or pigmented lesions on the hands, neck and face. Age related collagen and elasticity loss also adds to the formation of age spots which often impede on confidence and make people appear older than they are or feel. At Viola we offer a Candela GentleMax Pro treatment designed to eliminate pigmented lesions, age spots and sun spots for more youthful, radiant skin.

How does it work?

The Viola GentleMax Pro treatment uses intense, focused laser technology to deliver a gentle, yet effective burst of energy into the target area. The heat of the laser and the energy target the melanin build-up in the target zone (spot) safely neutralizing the excess melanin, while leaving the skin and the tissue above and around unharmed.

Overtime the appearance of the spot will fade until it is unnoticeable.
