For comfortable permanent hair reduction for all skin types, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Associates, P.A., uses GentleYAG® lasers to deliver Gentle Hair Removal™. Gentle Hair Removal can be used to treat just a few hairs in a small area to a large area in need of attention. The GentleYAG laser allows us to treat all skin types, from light to dark.
Laser Hair Removal with the Gentle Touch
Our Gentle laser systems create a beam of high intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue, where it delivers a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat; this damages the hair follicle to prevent future growth. The patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ protects and soothes the upper layers of skin by emitting a cooling burst of cryogen with each laser pulse.
Preparing for Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Because hair follicles grow at different rates and will be in different phases of the growth cycle, more than one treatment will be necessary to obtain complete results. Clients should prepare for their laser treatments in advance. Sun exposure should be avoided, as recently tanned skin cannot be treated. Avoid waxing, plucking or bleaching for a minimum of two weeks before treatment. The area to be treated should be freshly shaved and clean of any creams, lotions or makeup (including lipstick and deodorant).
