At our clinic we provide customized laser hair removal treatments that are tailored to your skin type, skin color and hair type.
Unfortunately, ethnic groups with darker skin tones were often discouraged from choosing laser hair removal treatments because of the procedure’s early reputation for damaging darker skin. That is a thing of the past however, since GentleYAG® is a solution that effectively treats all skin types.
The GentleYAG® system is a non-invasive procedure that can remove unwanted body hair on all skin types without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. It uses laser light with a 1064nm wavelength which can be safely used on the face and body. The laser emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
GentleYAG can be used to treat all areas of the body. The most common areas include legs, arms, armpits, bikini line, back, chest, upper lip and chin. 4-8 sessions are needed, usually spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart. Laser hair is effective as a permanent reduction in hair to the treated area.
GentleYAG laser hair removal procedure does not hurt for most of patients. Some topical anesthesia is applied by request, as some patients say the feeling of the laser is like that of snapping a rubber band against the skin and can cause minor irritation in some patients. Either way, you can continue regular activities later that day. In addition to that, laser hair removal is less painful (and more economical) than electrolysis, waxing and shaving.
