Lasers treatments for a variety of cosmetic enhancements have been around for a long time. Typical laser treatments include removing age spots; treating facial and leg veins and rejuvenating the face and skin back to its original youthful glow.
Today’s there’s a revolutionary new laser technology called GentleYAG that provides permanent hair removal, treats pigmented lesions and removes wrinkles all within an hour visit.
HOW IT WORKS
The GentleYAG system uses a high-energy laser that emits a gentle beam of light to its target without affecting the surrounding skin. The skin is first sprayed with a cooling device to increase comfort during the procedure. The long-pulse laser passes harmlessly through the skin where it is absorbed by the problem area.
HAIR REMOVAL BY GENTLE YAG LASER
GentleYAG removes hair no matter how fair or dark the patient’s skin is. It eliminates the endless hair removal headaches of waxing, plucking and shaving. The procedure is a lot less painful than electrolysis, less tedious and can be completed quickly. Delicate pores and skin are safe during this procedure. The laser energy is transformed into heat permanently destroying the hair at the follicle without damaging surrounding skin. Large areas such as the back, shoulders, arms and legs can be hair-free in a single session. The whole process can be completed in 30 minutes to an hour.
SPIDER VEINS BY GENTLE YAG LASER
Laser vein reduction has been around for about 10 years. Because of GentleYAG’s variable pulse width and dynamic cooling device, the typical stinging discomfort experienced through the popular sclerotherapy procedure is greatly reduced. Our “pulse and swing technique” of applying a cold sponge after each pulse also reduces discomfort. After each section is completed, cold gel packs are applied to decrease symptoms including swelling and redness. The results are excellent and can be expected to last for up to 10 years. Other advantages of GentleYAG over sclerotherapy include the following:
- No needles piercing the skin, only a laser beam on the skin’s surface
- No saline injection or risk of allergic reactions
- No aching, bruising or muscle cramps like sclerosing causes
- Tiny veins can be treated easily
- The laser procedure is quick and easy
- Complications are minimized due to computer controlled technology
- Laser treatment is reasonably priced
SKIN TIGHTENING BY GENTLE YAG LASER
A non-ablative laser beam transfers heat deep into the internal layers of the skin stimulating the body’s natural revitalizing materials including collagen, elastin and other proteins. The result of this activating procedure is diminished wrinkles and tighter skin. Many patients are pleased to see a more youthful appearance in as little 4 to 6 weeks. Follow-up procedures every 4-6 weeks maintain that healthy glow slowing down the appearance of the aging process.
