In the past, methods for hair removal include plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis and chemical depilatories. Some are painful and messy, but all of them are time consuming and are associated with high cost.
Candela® GentleYag Pro is an ideal solution for hair removal. Candela® GentleYag Pro is the fastest and the most powerful ND: YAG laser in the market, it offers 1064nm wavelength and combines both energy and power with variable pulse duration.
How does it work ?
Laser energy is delivered through a small handpiece operated by your provider. The laser targets the chromophore in your hair (the pigment that gives it colour). When light is absorbed by the pigment, it damages the follicle and decelerates future growth.
How many sessions are required ?
As hair grows in different cycles, laser hair reduction is most effective on hair during the early growth cycle. This is the reason why multiple treatments is recommended for successful results.
What can I expect after treatment ?
When the procedure is complete, you might experience minor side effects such as swelling, which usually lasts only a few hours. The targeted hair may feel very thick, but eventually will dissipate after one or two weeks. Within a week, the hair will grow and exfoliate by itself.
