The Gentle Pro Series lasers work by selectively targeting a specific chromophore (colour). This could be the melanin in a hair follicle or pigmented lesion. When treating vascular lesions, the laser targets haemoglobin within the blood of the vessel and coagulates it. The laser light is absorbed into the target and heats that target to a high enough temperature to destroy it, but without damaging the surrounding tissue. The epidermal (skin) protection is provided by the Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™)
cooling system which sprays the skin before each laser pulse with a liquid coolant. This cooling system is also adjustable, making sure the procedure is as comfortable as possible for individual needs.
