For over 25 years, the medical lasers of the Gentle Pro series of the American company Candela have been the undisputed leader in laser hair removal in 89 countries around the world.
More than 10 years on from the launch of the latest GentleMax Pro, in 2022 Candela also introduced its revolutionary new GentleMax Pro Plus platform, which surpasses all previous laser hair removal standards worldwide.
GentleMax Pro Plus combines (755nm) Alexandrite and (1064nm) Nd:YAG lasers with a record high peak power of 25000W for Alexandrite and 35000W for Nd:YAG lasers. Combining these two lasers makes successful laser hair removal of unwanted hair in all skin phototypes (phototype I-VI) possible. GentleMax Pro Plus® is the gold standard for laser hair removal of unwanted hair in all skin types.
The GentleMax Pro Plus is a dual wavelength laser platform that combines the fastest and most powerful 755 nm alexandrite laser with an equally powerful 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser. Thus, the GentleMax Pro Plus guarantees high-quality treatment of unwanted hair with unrivalled speed, efficacy, ease of use, efficiency, safety and patient satisfaction.
Laser hair removal is based on the selective absorption in the chromophore melanin, which is mainly found in the hair shaft and follicle and in a smaller amount in the skin, depending on the skin color. The aim is for the pigment in the hair follicle to absorb the heat emitted by the laser to heat and destroy the cells covering the hair follicle. For the procedure to be successful, the hair must be treated in the anagen (active) phase of the growth cycle.
GentleMax Pro Plus outperforms not only all previous generations of Candela, but also all other existing laser hair removal systems
Two wavelengths for effective laser hair removal on all skin types
High power allows the emission of 3 pulses per second for much faster treatments
Working spot covers 530 mm2 at each laser pulse for unsurpassed treatment speed over large areas
Candela's trademark is extremely comfortable treatments, despite 2x the power of other lasers
The industry's shortest pulse for effective treatment of the thinnest and residual hairs in laser hair removal
DCD™ dynamic skin cooling with cryospray for optimal skin protection
Laser hair removal with Candela GentleMax Pro Plus is suitable for every skin colour and type, as well as for every hair colour and thickness.
With GentleMax Pro Plus all previous challenges to laser hair removal such as inability to treat fine and light hairs, soreness and discomfort, large number of treatments required, inability to treat tanned skin and others are solved.
Candela is the most proven brand of laser equipment for permanent medical laser hair removal with over 25 years of history in medical lasers. The unsurpassed power of the GentleMax Pro Plus laser platform, combined with fine tuning and give unrivalled laser hair removal results in all areas. The record short laser pulse of 2ms allows successful treatment of even the finest and thinnest hairs. This increases the final result of laser hair removal many times over, i.e. the main challenge for laser hair removal are the areas with residual fine and light hairs.
The 3Hz laser pulse frequency, or the ability of the GentleMax Pro Plus to produce 3 pulses of equal power and energy within 1 second, allows for twice as short treatments, for example one of the largest areas of the body – the entire legs – takes 20 minutes. Another advantage with the GentleMax Pro Plus is the large spots – 20 to 26mm – which allow each area to be performed with far fewer laser pulses. The combination of these two features, which differentiate Candela from other laser systems and previous generations of GentleMax, save additional time and give additional comfort to the patient.
Characteristic of Candela and the GentleMax generations is the low discomfort of laser hair removal. Staying true to themselves, Candela’s GentleMax Pro Plus also maintains and even improves the comfort of the procedure, despite the higher power of each pulse. Twice the treatment time for large areas provides additional comfort.
DCD cooling enhances patient comfort and epidermal protection by injecting a cryogenic spray into the upper layers of the skin milliseconds before and after laser pulses. The increased power of the Candela GentleMax Pro Plus requires exceptional epidermal protection.

WARNING: Subcutaneous injection of lidocaine or other local anesthetic prior to laser treatment may increase the incidence of adverse effects such as burns, erythema, and blistering.
WARNING: To reduce the incidence of adverse effects such as burns, erythema, and blistering, do not treat sun-exposed areas of skin with Alex 755 nm.
IMPORTANT: The effectiveness of treatment and the possibility of adverse effects are directly related to the laser settings and energy used: higher levels of energy used increase the effectiveness of treatment, but also increase the possibility of adverse effects.
