Dr. Acra uses the new, advanced Candela GentleMax Pro® system to reverse sun damage, brown patches and unwanted spider veins, while stimulating healthy, new collagen. This non-ablative laser does not damage the top layer of skin - the "treatment" takes place under the epidermis.
GentleMax Pro® brings together two gold standard lasers (GentleYAG and GentleMax Pro®) to create one unbeatable system. GentleYAG, the fastest and most powerful Nd:YAG 1064 nm laser on the market, effectively treats all skin types, including tanned skin, for permanent hair reduction, leg and facial veins, wrinkles and skin tightening. GentleMax Pro®, Candela’s 755 nm laser, is the premier treatment for unwanted hair, pigmented and vascular lesions, and wrinkles. Individually, these lasers offer unrivaled flexibility and efficacy. Together, they deliver even more allowing you to expand your treatment capabilities and enhance your practice with one stand-alone system. With GentleMax Pro® you have your choice of skin cooling options from chilled air technology to Candela’s integrated and patented Dynamic Cooling Device that utilizes bursts of cryogen before and after the laser pulse to offer unparalleled patient comfort.

Pigmented Lesions (Sun/Age Spots), Freckles
At Acra Medical Aesthetics Dr. Acra has chosen GentleMax Pro®. Just introduced in 2007 to treat sun damage because of its superior technology. GentleMax Pro® Laser offers a significant advance over standard Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) systems.
Laser TreatmentHow does it work?
During treatment, laser light is absorbed only by the unwanted melanin, raising the temperature to cause shattering of the pigment. Deeper level damaged blood vessels are treated similarly with a quick switch of settings. Shortly after treatment, the pigment cells (or melanin) have been thoroughly fragmented - without damaging the surrounding tissue. Vascular lesions (spider veins) also coagulate and shrink, many of them disappearing altogether.
In the weeks after treatment, the shattered melanin particles are eliminated by your body's own "clean up" system that absorbs the fragmented pigment. Little or no trace of the initial pigmentation spots or spidery veins remain. A GentleMax Pro® pigmented lesions treatment also improves skin texture through collagen stimulation. You get multiple treatment benefits through one system. By helping to remove the age spots, sun-induced freckles and broken capillaries, you'll have overall younger looking skin. Improvement is subtle and accomplished over a series of treatments so your skin will not appear obviously treated.
Suffer from unsightly spider veins? The 1064nm laser wavelength of the GentleMax Pro® can help to safely treat unsightly facial and leg veins. After a single treatment you’ll notice a significant reduction and after a series of treatments you’ll notice fantastic results that last.
Those men and women that suffer with fine lines, wrinkles or loose and sagging skin, the GentleMax Pro® works to promote the natural growth of collagen in order to smooth out wrinkles and tighten loose and flabby skin. After a series of treatments patients will look and feel years younger.
Dr. Acra combines the power of two leading aesthetic lasers into one single device, Candela has made it possible to treat the widest variety of patients on one single machine the potential is unlimited. If you suffer from fine lines, wrinkles or loose and sagging skin! The GentleMax Pro® works to promote the natural growth of collagen in order to smooth out wrinkles and tighten skin" is repeated twice. So since this is like one of our main money makers in the office and the one treatment people search for the most, lets add the following: "Dr. Acra uses the combination of three lasers for the skin tighetning procedure. Firstly promoting, stimulating, and reactivating the elastin fibers deep within the skin. This is followed by the stimulation of the facial muscles, in which ultimately will be "tightened". Finally, Dr. Acra uses a more superficial setting within the laser to resurface and give your skin the "glow" of youthful active skin. The treatment is completely painless and there is no downtime required.
eTwo Sublative Sublime Skin Contouring
Complete Facial Rejuvenation using the eTwo™. eTwo combines the unique Sublime and Sublative applications for comprehensive facial rejuvenation
Sublime™ uses the elōs combination of safe and effective levels of infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency energies to remodel the deep dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth.
Sublative™ fractionated bi-polar radio frequency technology places the heat energy effectively into the upper dermis where it can produce a significant increase in both collagen and elastin with minimal epidermal disruption.
The Science of Sublime
Sublime uses the elōs combination of IR and Bi-Polar RF to provide controlled deep dermal heating. This predictable heating of the deep dermis both stimulates and shortens aged collagen fibers, resulting in the immediate and long term improvement of wrinkles and facial contour.The unique Sublative ergonomic applicator delivers bi-polar radio frequency energy via the matrix of electrodes of the disposable Sublative iD. This fractional delivery of RF energy causes micro-epidermal ablative injuries with wider spread dermal coagulation. This initiates a strong wound healing response in the dermal matrix while also minimizing the damage to the epidermis. Less affected tissue surrounding the matrix points may be stimulated by heat which helps accelerate the healing process, leading to a smoother, rejuvenated appearance of the skin.
