Candela® GentleYAG Laser Description

The Nd:YAG laser is one of the most versatile lasers in medicine. It finds applications in cosmetic surgery, ophthalmology, dentistry, medical research and industry.

At the Knight Dermatology Institute, we use the long-pulse Nd:YAG laser for three indications: hair removal, leg vein and vascular lesion removal, and skin tightening laser gentle yag.

The Nd:YAG laser is an infrared laser that delivers invisible energy deeply into the skin. By heating its targets slowly, it is very effective and safe. This is especially true for darker skinned individuals who would not normally be candidates for laser procedures.

The Candela® GentleYAG is an excellent hair removal laser. By targeting the hair follicle deeply in the dermis of the skin, it can create significant reduction in hair counts. Candela®’s Dynamic Cooling of the skin further protects the upper layers of the skin from unwanted side effects.

Does Candela® GentleYAG Laser treatments hurt?

Some patients may feel a slight discomfort during treatment, which we often describe as a “rubber band snapping on the skin.” For many individuals, however, treatment is almost pain-free. Topical numbing creams can be used prior to treatment for sensitive individuals.

How many Candela® GentleYAG treatments will I need?

Multiple treatments are required in almost all cases. The exact number of sessions required will depend on the site to be treated, the condition to be treated, the thickness and quality of the treated hair, and your natural skin color.

Candela® GentleYAG laser treatment results

Slight redness and mild swelling should subside within a few hours after treatment.

Are there Candela VBeam side effects for laser hair removal, leg varicose vein removal or skin tightening?

Side effects are rare, but include hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, bruising, prolonged redness, and blistering. Permanent side effects, such as scarring, are extremely rare.

Knight Dermatology Institute offers Candela Gentle Yag laser treatments to patients throughout Central Florida including the Orlando regional cities of Winter Park, Maitland, Longwood, Sanford, Kissimmee and Windermere.
