WHAT IS THE CANDELA MINI GENTLEYAG?
The Candela Mini GentleYAG is a versatile YAG laser which performs treatments for all skin types including very tanned skin. The best results are skin types IV-VI. If you have darker skin, this machine can handle your needs.
What makes laser hair removal problematic for dark skin is when the laser targets the pigment (melanin) in your skin in addition to the hair follicle.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
This machine is among the best and safest hair removal systems, and provides permanent results. There is no treatment downtime. This laser is totally non-invasive.
Your skin may be red for a few minutes or a few hours post treatment. As this redness fades you’ll note smoother skin with less hair. Best of all is its permanent. While you might need multiple sessions, the treated follicles can no longer produce a hair.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
It's important that you go to an expert that carries the right laser device. Look for a YAG laser (the 1064 Nd;YAG laser to be exact); it is a long pulsed laser that bypasses the melanin in your skin and targets just the hair follicle.
The Candela GentleYAG is accompanied by a cryogen cooling system which maximizes the patients comfort during the treatment.
