I haven’t had first-hand experience with the GentleMax Pro yet so I can’t really assess how effective it is or how many sessions are needed to see drastic change. Come January of next year, though, I’ll be starting my GMax sessions. Yey! I’ll update you after every session to give you a better idea on how the machine works. 🙂
I want nothing more than to go 3 dress sizes down but ain’t motivated enough to go to the gym regularly. Call me lazy but anything that reduces the need for me to exercise just to lose weight excites me. I’m always eager to test new innovations when it comes to effortlessly shedding those unwanted pounds. If you’re a long time reader, you probably already know this by know. Haha. As I was saying, I was invited to Skin House’s first ever blogger bash at their branch in Pasig last week. This isn’t my first time visiting the place, though. I’ve been to their clinic twice before and each time I go there, I get amazing results; which is why I always look forward to visiting Skin House for my treatments. 🙂
For the benefit of those who haven’t read my previous post about Skin House, here’s what you need to know about the clinic: Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic is an advanced medical aesthetics center that offers a wide array of non-invasive cosmetic procedures. The treatments are designed to improve the appearance of the face and body for a more youthful glow. Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic currently have two branches: Their flagship branch is Quezon City and their newer branch in Pasig that just opened last June 5 of this year.
(Above) Here’s Skin House’s Marketing Manager, Joanne Yu, talking about the humble beginnings of the clinic and their new treatments. I actually got to meet her earlier this year when she was still pregnant and now, just 4 months after giving birth, she looks so slim!
(Below) Dra. Olalia discussing their newest machine for faster laser hair removal. GentleMax Pro, the integrated aesthetic platform, offers more power and versatility than any other multi-wavelength device. GentleMax Pro is a single consolidated system that delivers a range of treatments–all skin type hair removal, as well as pigmented and vascular lesions.
The GentleMax Pro is a dual wavelength laser platform that combines the fastest and most powerful 755 nm Alexandrite laser with the 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser for high performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficacy, ease-of-use, outstanding performance, safety and patient satisfaction.
755nm Alexandrite laser can target facial vessels, hemangiomas and resistant PWS where as the 1064nm Nd:YAG laser – not only can targets facial vessels – but it also works on leg veins as well as for hair removal and non-ablative skin tightening. Now as GentleMax Pro combines these two, it is now capable to create deeper bulk of heat deposition to cause collagen contraction and stimulation thus, ultimately leading to skin tightening and rejuvenation.
Venus Freeze is a revolutionary treatment which is highly effective in circumference reduction, improving cellulite, skin tightening and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Venus Freeze uses pulsed magnetic fields, which provide you with the added benefits of increased oxygen, nutrients and blood to the skin – giving it an immediate and long lasting glow.
Using patented (MP)² technology, Venus Freeze utilizes multi-polar radio frequency and Pulsed Magnetic fields which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes new collagen to form and the production of new elastin fibres. The active collage in the skin contracts, achieving tighter skin, softening of wrinkles and reduced cellulite.
Venus Freeze treatments are non-invasive and painless, with many patients comparing the treatment to a hot-stone massage! Treatments take approximately 30-40mins depending on the area, you can expect to see results as the treatments progress, a minimum of 6 treatments for the face, 8 on the neck and 10 on the body.
If you’re wondering if it delivers real results; without a shadow of a doubt, I’m telling you it does. I’ve had the privilege of trying the Venus Freeze before and it had given me amazing results. I first tried it on my tummy; you can read HERE for an in-depth write-up. And during the event, I had the pleasure of trying it on my arms to see if it’ll deliver results as good as it did on my tummy area – fats around the arms are generally harder to burn and slim down. I’m happy to share that it really works just as well; from 12.5-11.5-11 (upper-mid-lower arm, in inches), I was down to 12-11.2-10.5 after just ONE SESSION! And what’s even more amazing is that the circumferential reduction is not just a temporary fluctuation. The arms hasn’t gone back to its ‘before’ measurement even after several days.
During the event, a make-shift skin analysis station was created beside the clinic where guests can have their skin checked and diagnosed. I didn’t get a chance to get my skin checked as I rushed inside the clinic for my turn on the Venus Freeze Treatment but from what I saw, the patient just have to place her face in front of the blue lights. From there, a digital photo is taken to show areas that need to be treated. Too bad I didn’t get to see what my face looks like when all the problem areas are magnified.

Oh, say ‘hi’ to my fellow blogger/event-buddy, Kim of KimPossiblyGorgeous. It was fun talking about treatments and girl stuff with her all afternoon. Don’t forget to visit her blog if you haven’t yet. 🙂
