If you have unwanted facial or body hair, the GentleYAG laser offers a permanent solution. Instead of constantly waxing, bleaching, and plucking, this laser delivers targeted hair removal with minimal side effects and quick recovery. Here’s what you need to know about this laser hair removal treatment:
The GentleYAG laser is safe for most people with unwanted hair. It can be used anywhere this hair grows, including the face. The laser targets pigmented hair, so it can’t be used to remove blonde or gray hair. Although rare, there is a chance that the laser could cause hypopigmentation, or reduced pigment, in people with dark skin tones. Having a small test treatment performed two weeks before having larger scale hair removal can prevent this problem.
Some patients describe feeling a small amount of stinging during treatment. This pain can be diminished by applying an anesthetic cream prior to treatment. A cooling gel is also applied during treatment to help soothe the skin.
You will see dramatic hair removal results after the first treatment, but most patients require a second treatment four to six weeks later to get the full benefit of GentleYAG laser hair removal. Some patients receive up to six treatments, depending on the location and density of the hair to be removed.
Right after treatment, you may experience swelling, redness, and peeling, which should subside within a day or so. GentleYAG is a permanent hair removal system, though occasionally, patients need a touchup treatment.
At the Prolase Laser Clinic, we achieve excellent hair removal results with the GentleYAG system. We perform this procedure, plus dermal fillers, permanent makeup, and chemical peels, at our two Los Angeles locations. Call us at (818) 660-1664 to learn more about services or to schedule a consultation.
I actually heard about this place through YELP! It was on one of their weekly roundup emails and I'm so glad I stumbled upon this gem. Their prices are so reasonable... you only pay per visit so that you only need to go as much as YOU need to. Not like those other places where you have to pay a lot up front and get say 5 or 6 sessions. I've...
Gold does more than make jewelry look beautiful—it can also be used to improve the appearance of your skin. Gold facials can help reduce inflammation and make your skin look young and smooth. You can choose a gold-flake mask or a cream-based mask that contains a small amount of gold. Here are some of the benefits gold can deliver to your skin:
Get Rid of Acne
Gold is prized for its detoxifying properties. For acne sufferers, a gold facial mask is beneficial, because it can draw out the bacteria that cause acne breakouts. Reducing the acne bacteria in the skin not only helps to clear current acne flare-ups, but it can also help prevent new blemishes from appearing.
Brighten the Skin
In medicine, gold is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and has shown promise in treating cancer. Part of the reason gold is used in medical treatments is that it causes cells to regenerate. A gold facial helps strip away dull surface skin cells, allowing your skin cells to renew and giving you a bright, fresh appearance.
Reduce the Signs of Aging
The regenerating properties of gold also help make skin look younger. Gold facials improve skin elasticity, which helps cure sagging skin woes. Gold also offers exfoliating properties, which reduces the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles.
At Prolase Laser Clinic, we offer two kinds of gold facials: a 24-karat gold facial and a nano-gold facial. To learn more about our gold facials or the other treatments available at our med spa, call us at (818) 660-1664. We also provide laser hair removal, dermal fillers, chemical peels, permanent makeup, and many other spa services at our two Los Angeles locations.
