The GentleYAG effectively treats most skin types, including tanned skin, offering unmatched treatment capabilities in hair reduction, leg veins, facial veins, and wrinkles. GentleYAG's 1064 nm wavelength, multiple spot sizes, variable pulse durations and Candela's patented cryogen cooling system (DCD™) provide maximum patient comfort and safety.
GentleYAG laser hair removal is used for any area of the skin which has unwanted hair, including the face, neck, chest, back, bikini area, underarms, arms and legs. This laser procedure may be used in women and men, teenagers to older patients. The hair being treated must be pigmented, either brown or black. Since the laser targets pigment, blonde and gray hairs are not removed with the GentleYAG laser.
Because the laser targets pigment, there is a possibility that the laser will alter the pigment of the skin as well as remove the hair. For this reason, we test two to three small areas and wait one to two weeks to ensure that the patient has no change in the pigmentation of their skin. In addition, the GentleYAG laser has a special contact cooling hand piece which helps cool down the surrounding skin as it directs laser energy to the hair follicle.
