The GentleYAG effectively treats all skin types, including tanned skin, offering unmatched treatment capabilities in permanent hair reduction, leg veins, facial veins, and wrinkles. Treat patients year-round with GentleYAG's 1064 nm wavelength, multiple spot sizes, variable pulse durations and Candela's patented cryogen cooling system (DCD™) for maximum patient comfort and safety.
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.

Because the laser targets pigment, there is a possibility that the laser will alter the pigment of the skin as well as remove the hair. For this reason, we test two to three small areas and wait one to two weeks to ensure that the patient has no change in the pigmentation of their skin. In addition, the GentleYAG Laser has a special contact cooling handpiece which helps cool down the surrounding skin as it directs laser energy to the hair follicle.
