GentleLASE is a long pulse alexandrite laser which delivers high intensity light that penetrates deep into the skin. This is a versatile device because its laser beam can “missile lock” various targets from hair follicles to the pigment in brown spots, to blue and red veins as well as the tired collagen under a wrinkle.
This laser has integrated Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) technology, which protects the upper layers of the skin with a cooling burst of cryogen.
GentleLASE is manufactured by the Candela Corporation.
