Gentle Yag

Many people, both women and men, have unwanted hair. The GentleYAG Laser system delivers laser energy through a small device held by the practitioner. It functions by delivering a narrow, intense beam of light that is then absorbed by the skin and converted to heat which is absorbed by the cells in the specific targeted area of the face or body. The process involves focusing the laser upon a very limited area, and this direct beam does not affect the surrounding tissue – the perfect method for those who are interested in hair removal.

The GentleYAG Laser can be used to resolve unwanted hair in the following areas of the body:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Bikini Zone
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Legs


Who gets it?

All skin types can be successfully treated with the GentleYAG system, and patients of any age can have unwanted hair removed. Only hair with pigment will be removed with this process, as it targets the pigment in the hair, so people with brown or black hair are candidates for the treatment. Whether your issue is related to facial whisker bumps, back hair, upper lip hair, or other area of your body, if the hair is dark in color, we advise you get a consultation about the GentleYAG Laser treatment.
