Plenty of cosmetic enhancements are possible with laser technology – a technique that has been around for a significant period of time. Laser treatments have traditionally been used to remove age spots, treating veins on the face and legs, as well as rejuvenating facial skin to make it look younger as well as feeling fresher. A revolutionary laser technology called GentleYAG is now available and can be used to treat:
HOW IT WORKS
The GentleYAG system utilises a high-energy laser that does not affect or harm your skin. A cooling device will be used first to spray your skin so as to ensure you are comfortable during the hair removal procedure. As the target is set, a gentle beam of light is emitted by the GentleYAG system. The long-pulse laser will pass through your skin without causing any damage whatsoever, and will be absorbed by the target area. Laser energy will be converted to heat which helps to target the hair follicles in the process, which will help to reduce any hair regrowth.* There is no downtime with the Candela GentleYAG laser, making this the laser of choice for your permanent hair removal.
PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL
It does not matter how fair or dark a patient’s skin is as the GentleYAG laser system will remove hair regardless. This eliminates the need for waxing, shaving or plucking on the patient’s part and they will no longer have to go through this cycle. Less painful than electrolysis, the procedure is fairly swift and a lot less tedious than other hair removal techniques. Skin and delicate pores are not harmed during the treatment and even larger body areas such as the back, arms, legs and shoulders can treated and left hair-free in a single session.
6 sessions performed once a month are recommended for optimum results but this may vary depending on the individual. Hair grows in phases and several sessions are required to target it in the correct phase; you will notice that there is less and finer hair regrowth even after the first session.
