Candela GentleMax Pro

The GentleMax Pro system utilizes two different wavelengths of lasers that make it a versatile solution for many different skin types. The 755 nm Alexandrite laser and 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser work together to treat a variety of skin tones and conditions. The lasers are extraordinarily efficient so your treatments can be completed in under an hour. Candela has been providing some of the industry’s highest quality lasers for over 20 years, making the GentleMax Pro system one of the most consistent and adaptable lasers available today.

What can I treat with the Candela GentleMax Pro?

Although the GentleMax Pro system is typically used for laser hair removal, it can also be used to treat:

  • Visible veins on your legs, face, or other areas
  • Skin discoloration including sun spots, port wine stains, or redness
  • Sagging skin typically found near the face and neck

There is very little downtime associated with the GentleMax Pro system, allowing you to go back to work or other activities after your treatment is complete.

Technology and Devices

Motus AY

The Motus AY are cutting-edge technologies used for effective laser hair removal for all skin types. The devices are manufactured by Europe’s leading laser manufacturer—DEKA. They’ve produced the world’s first high-speed Alexandrite lasers capable of working on both light and dark skin tones with equal effectiveness.

The Motus AY devices use the groundbreaking Moveo technology to gradually heat and destroy targeted hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin tissues. Unlike other laser systems, the Moveo hand pieces are designed to ensure 100% energy absorption, increasing the total energy available for laser hair removal. As such, the Motus AY devices are far more effective and faster than other laser hair removal systems.

Benefits of Motus AY

  • Destroys targeted hair follicles without harming the surrounding skin
  • The cool sapphire tip ensures a comfortable experience for the patient
  • The Moveo handpiece ensures 100% energy absorption
  • The gradual heating minimizes the “rubber-band” sensation and discomfort traditionally associated with laser hair removal
  • Suitable for light AND dark skin types

Laser Tattoo Removal:

Technology and Devices

Candela Picoway Laser

The PicoWay system produces the shortest pulsed laser currently available marketwide, to reach beneath the skin and remove tattoos, dark spots, wrinkles or acne scars. Comprehensive Laser & Aesthetics is the ONLY practice in Maryland that has this highly effective laser tattoo removal device. As its ultra-short laser pulses produce a photoacoustic effect—where sound waves follow laser light absorption to shatter tattoo ink and leave the outer layer of skin intact—the PicoWay requires zero patient downtime and leaves no scar. PicoWay is FDA cleared for the removal of acne scars, wrinkles, dark skin spots and tattoos.

You will begin to see immediate reduction in tattoo density, and possible full resolution of dark spots and acne scarring following the first treatment, with full resolution possible over the course of several treatments. While most laser tattoo removal systems depend on a photothermal (heating) effect and may thus negatively impact the surface layer of the skin, PicoWay instead produces a photoacoustic effect where sound waves do all of the work without heating or causing any damage to the epidermis.

Who is a good candidate for PicoWay laser?

Anyone seeking to restore refreshed and beautifully rejuvenated skin by quickly removing tattoos, dark skin spots or acne scars with little to no downtime is typically a candidate for PicoWay.

Skin Resurfacing:

Candela CO2RE

Candela CO2RE is an advanced laser technology used in dermatology and aesthetic medicine for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. The CO2RE laser emits precise and controlled light beams into specifically-targeted areas of the skin, triggering collagen production and promoting cellular turnover. This results in improved skin tone, reduced wrinkles, and diminished scars and pigmentation irregularities. The treatment can be customized to meet every individual patient's needs, offering a customizable approach for various skin concerns. With minimal downtime and impressive results, Candela CO2RE has become a popular option for those seeking effective non-surgical solutions to achieve smoother, younger-looking skin.

The Candela CO2RE system offers four different modes for skin resurfacing, each catering to varying levels of skin concerns. The "Light" mode delivers superficial treatment, targeting the outermost skin layer to improve texture and tone. The "Mid" mode penetrates deeper, addressing moderate signs of aging and sun damage. For more severe skin issues, the "Deep" mode targets the skin's deepest layers, effectively treating wrinkles and scars. Additionally, the "Fusion" mode combines both "Light" and "Mid" modes to provide a comprehensive approach for addressing multiple skin concerns simultaneously. This versatility allows practitioners to customize treatments based on individual patient needs, achieving optimal skin rejuvenation results.

DEKA Tetra CO2

The Tetra CO2 laser is the latest advancement in laser skin resurfacing. What makes the Tetra CO2 laser unique is that the treatment can be completely customized to a patient’s exact needs. Your provider can choose the pulse speed, power, and density of the treatment. This allows your provider to tailor the laser treatment to you, which isn’t possible using other one-size-fits-all machines. For patients who are older, or dealing with common signs of aging, the Tetra CO2 can be used on fine lines and wrinkles. For younger patients or those who may be struggling with skin texture, the Tetra CO2 can also help.

CoolPeel with Tetra CO2

One of the best features of the laser is the ability to perform CoolPeel, a new type of CO2 resurfacing treatment. This treatment is able to deliver fractional ablative treatment without the downtime or redness of traditional CO2 treatments. The CoolPeel can be used to treat sun damage, fine lines, and skin texture.

Ideal Candidates for DEKA Tetra CO2

One of the hallmarks of this new laser treatment is that just about everyone is an ideal candidate. The machine can be adjusted to fit your needs and address your specific concerns. Some of the most common issues treated by the Tetra CO2 include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brown spots
  • Scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sunspots
Technology and Devices


The TIXEL is a game-changing new device that delivers controlled heat to the skin in a totally safe manner (no skin burns). The heating achieved with TIXEL only affects the surface level of the skin, making it less painful than other lasers. Furthermore, the treatment is not light-based, meaning that it is safe for use on areas near the eyes. The TIXEL is far less aggressive than light procedures, achieving results that are somewhere between those of non-ablative and ablative laser treatments. The high temperature makes the TIXEL a sterile procedure and it is a low downtime procedure.

The TIXEL device utilizes thermal energy to treat surface skin in two ways. The first way involves stimulating collagen production and creating a tighter appearance. The second way involves creating micro-channels in the skin that facilitate the absorption of various topical products, leading to increased effectiveness of the products.

The TIXEL device is designed to improve fine lines, reduce wrinkles, and improve skin texture. It can also reduce the size of facial pores. Patients who are suffering from acne scars on areas such as the face, neck, and back can also benefit greatly from this treatment. It is also very effective at improving Melasma treatments, as it allows for better absorption of the medications.
