Why Gentle Yag Is One of the Most Effective Hair Removal Treatments

For years, lasers have been instrumental in treating various cosmetic concerns. Facial flaws, unsightly veins, age spots, and skin rejuvenation.

The Gentle YAG System is a groundbreaking energy laser treatment that emits a gentle beam of light to hair follicles where it is absorbed. The laser energy converts to heat, which destroys these hair follicles while leaving the surrounding skin tissue unharmed.

Dynamic Cooling Feature

The skin is also protected by a revolutionary cooling system where cryogen is applied onto the skin, allowing the upper layer to remain comfortably cool.

Traditional hair removal remedies like tweezing, shaving, and waxing or using depilatory cream offer only temporary relief. Outside of electrolysis, a tedious, time-consuming procedure, there are no permanent hair removal therapies.

Why Gentle Yag, And Why Dr. Key

Gentle YAG is one of the most versatile laser treatments. This laser has extended pulse settings to gently heat the skin with a collagen-building response. This allows for new collagen production for tighter skin while also getting rid of unwanted hair.

Dr. Key was authored the first published study on the greater effectiveness of Gentle YAG Laser Lift compared to Thermage RF for lifting and tightening the skin.

He was personally invited by Gentle YAG laser manufacturer, Candela, to develop this technology for skin tightening and lifting. The current treatment protocols used globally today are a direct result of his crucial input. As a result, you can choose with confidence, knowing that Key Laser has the most advanced treatment options available.

The Candela Gentle YAG laser hair removal technology can eliminate unwanted hair from all skin types and tones without damaging the delicate skin structures.

After Treatment

After Gentle YAG Laser treatments, the skin appearance varies with each patient, depending on skin type and the area treated. However, most patients have some redness and swelling on the treatment areas after the procedure, much like a mild sunburn sensation.

This may last for a few hours. Hair from the treated area will shed. Mild skin flakiness and crusting may occur. Most patients can return to their daily activities right away.
