Candela PicoWay®

The Candela PicoWay® laser system was designed to treat a wide variety of pigmented lesions. It can safely and effectively remove or lighten pigmented lesions such as age spots, freckles, birthmarks and more from all types of skin. The PicoWay® laser is also one of the most successful means of removing multicolor tattoos. This laser offers a combination of two wavelengths to provide more treatment options than other similar devices. The PicoWay provides a precision treatment that targets only the pigment without damaging any nearby tissue.

In many cases, a pigmented lesion or tattoo can be completely eradicated by the PicoWay. However, its success depends on a number of factors, including the location, length of time it has existed, type of pigmentation being treated and the depth to which it reaches. The PicoWay is more successful than many other forms of treatment for tattoos because it is capable of acting on multiple ink colors, higher peak power and picosecond technology..

To begin the procedure, the doctor places the handpiece against the skin in the treatment area. Most patients experience only mild discomfort, as the process feels like a rubber band being snapped on the skin. The PicoWay laser emits pulses of energy to remove the excess pigmentation at the site. The number of pulses needed to eliminate the lesion will vary, with smaller or shallower lesions requiring less treatment. Larger, deeper lesions may not be resolved in one treatment session.

Candela GentleYAG

One of the most versatile and effective laser treatments available today, the Candela GentleYag can benefit a number of different conditions. It is safe for practically any skin type, including traditionally harder-to-treat darker skin. The wavelength of the laser, along with its patented cooling device, provides greater protection for every skin pigment any time of year. The GentleYag laser precisely targets an area, leaving the surround tissue untouched.

The GentleYag is ideal for the removal of unwanted hair on the face as well as all over the body including the neck, breasts, stomach, arms, shoulders, bikini area, legs and back. In addition to hair removal, it can be used to treat razor bumps (pseudofolliculitis barbae). The GentleYag is also a successful therapy method for diminishing noticeable veins in the face or legs; the reduction of vascular lesions including sun damage, age spots, freckles, melasma and seborrheic keratoses; and decreasing wrinkles in the skin.
