Permanently removes 90% of unwanted hair
Give your razor, tweezers or waxologist a break. Laser hair removal can permanently eliminate up to 90 percent of unwanted hair, unlike shaving and waxing, which both result in total regrowth.
Now there’s no need for waxing or tedious shaving! Our GentleYAG™ laser hair removal system removes hair comfortably and quickly, providing faster treatments with little discomfort. You can achieve fast results and eliminate hair from the source with increased comfort and efficiency. Laser hair removal is great for large areas like the legs arms and back. Another perk: there’s no need to grow out that unwanted hair before treatments!
Treats all skin types – Deep penetration with minimal scattering of laser energy makes the GentleYAG ideal for all skin types, especially dark and tanned skin.The GentleYAG is the fastest and most powerful Nd:YAG laser on the market today. It effectively treats all skin types, including tanned skin, offering unmatched treatment capabilities in permanent hair reduction, wrinkles and skin tightening.
Dynamic Cooling Offers Protection
Patented Epidermal Cooling – The GentleYag’s Dynamic Cooling Device represents an adjustable epidermal protection technology to maximize patient safety and comfort. It has a special contact cooling handpiece which helps cool down the surrounding skin as it directs laser energy to the hair follicle.
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. Any skin type may be treated including those with Asian and African American skin. The hair to be lasered must be pigmented, either brown or black. Because the laser targets pigment, blonde and gray hair are not removed with the GentleYAG Laser.
Hardly Any Downtime
The appearance of the skin after GentleYAG Laser varies from patient to patient, depending on their skin type and area treated. Most patients have redness and some swelling of the treated area with mild discomfort similar in sensation to a mild sunburn. This may last from an hour to a day. Hair from the treated area may shed. Mild crusting may occur, but if the patient experiences extensive crusting or blister formation they should contact their physician. Most patients are able to return to their usual activities right away.
