ALEXANDRITE LASER

 

 

THE INDICATIONS

  • Unwanted hair anywhere 
  • Blue and red veins 
  • Leg veins 
  • Hemangiomas 
  •  Wrinkles 

The Science

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. 


The Treatment

  • Appropriate eye protection is provided 
  • The treatment feels like the snapping of a rubber band 
  • A session can last from a few minutes to an hour depending on what condition is treated. 
  •  There is generally no down time. 
  • Brown spots will appear darker for 5 to 7 days until they flake off. 
  • Otherwise bruising, scabbing and discoloration are very rare. 
  • The number of treatments sessions for brown spots varies from 1 to 3. Hair removal requires more frequent treatments.
