Overview

MaxG offers superior closure of the larger, deeper facial vessels with a unique combination of Dynamic Spectrum ShiftingSM and dual-band filters—which provides more uniform heating across the entire diameter of larger vessels.

And with our patented advances in pulsed-light performance, your clients can experience a comfortable, no-downtime treatment on their way to a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

The Benefits of MaxG

Delivering dual bands of wavelengths to selectively target the absorption peaks of hemoglobin and preferentially heat blood in the presence of melanin, the MaxG offers superior closure of the larger, deeper facial vessels with Dynamic Spectrum Shifting.

The MaxG’s Dynamic Spectrum Shifting increases the concentration of near-infrared light with longer pulse widths to provide more uniform heating across the entire diameter of larger vessels.

In comparison to non-optimized pulsed light, the MaxG handpiece offers:

  • More energy available across all pulse durations
  • Greater peak power to address challenging small vessels
  • Higher fluences to address mid-to-large-sized resistant vessels
