Overview of

Gentle Yag Laser Treatment

in Thailand

The Gentle YAG Laser treatment is a procedure that effectively and non-invasively removes unwanted facial and body hair with laser devices that emit a beam of light with a wavelength of 1064-nm. This light, paired with a continuous supply of heat, destroys hair follicles by targeting the roots while ensuring the surrounding skin tissue remains untouched.

Laser hair removal is state-of-the-art technology that provides results which last significantly longer in comparison to other methods such as shaving, waxing, and electrolysis. It is also the only procedure that is effective at eliminating substantial amounts of hair from the chest, legs, back, and face.

Depending on the condition that is being addressed as well as which part of the body is being treated, the procedure can last between a couple of minutes to a few hours. For instance, it can take as little as 15 minutes to treat both legs, which is nearly the same amount of time it takes to treat an average man’s back.

Goals of

Pros and cons of

Gentle Yag Laser Treatment

Pros

  • Best option for hair removal: While laser hair removal is not exactly permanent, you may not even have to consider shaving again as the YAG laser treatment contributes to a significant reduction in hair growth.
  • Versatile to work on any area of the body: The versatility of this procedure allows it to be done on any part of the body, covering areas such as the stomach, back, bikini line, underarms, legs, neck, and face.
  • Delivers effective, predictable results: Although this treatment is versatile, it works most effectively on areas such as the underarms, chin, and lips, especially for individuals with fair skin tones and dark hair. Many patients will generally notice visible results after about four to six treatment sessions.
  • Very precise: Lasers are able to accurately target areas with rough, dark hair, ensuring the adjacent skin tissues remain untouched.
  • Swift action: The laser produces rapid pulses of light, targeting considerable amounts of hair simultaneously, thus quickening the process. The upper lip hair, for instance, can be treated in as little as 90 seconds.
  • Little to no pain: A cool, numbing agent will be applied onto the treatment areas prior to and after laser hair removal. This reduces the intensity of pain that may be felt during the procedure, which is usually very minimal. Treatment will gradually become less painful with repeated sessions as the hair strands become less coarse.

Cons

  • The Gentle YAG laser treatment costs more compared to the other conventional hair removal procedures.
  • While many patients can resume normal activities right after the procedure is completed, some may experience unpleasant post-treatment side effects, such as swelling and redness, and mild crusting may occur on the treated areas as the hair sheds off. However, this is normal and the sensation feels just about the same as a sunburn, lasting for about one to two hours, or up to a day maximum.
  • There's a risk that your hair might grow back and you may need to undergo the same treatment every year for maintenance.
  • Not optimally effective for patients with darker skin, because the lesser contrast between the skin tone with the hair color causes difficulty for the laser to isolate the precise target areas.
  • The treated skin area may experience pigmentation level changes (either more, or less). Regular SPF30 sunscreen usage before and after the laser treatment helps to minimize the risk.
  • Depending on the body area being treated, you may need to undergo a lengthy treatment process. Laser hair removal on the upper lips can be done in less than 60 seconds, but you will need to come back for subsequent treatments spaced out once every 4 to 6 weeks. On top of that, you'll need to be committed to complete every follow-up treatment sessions as advised by the doctor.
  • Typically, it takes many treatment sessions to achieve visible results. The specific time required will vary, based on the different hair growth rates at different body area.

How it works:

Gentle Yag Laser Treatment

The YAG laser treatment is an outpatient procedure that only requires topical anesthesia. Depending on your situation and the area(s) being treated, the procedure may take a few minutes to a couple of hours to complete. The steps include:

  1. Cleansing the treatment area
  2. Applying topical anesthesia to ensure little to no discomfort is felt during the procedure
  3. Targeting pulses of light to the treatment area with a hand-held laser device
  4. Instructing the patient as appropriate with regard to what must be done and what must be avoided post-treatment

Preparation before

Gentle Yag Laser Treatment

Pre - treatment

It is recommended to:

  • Steer clear of direct exposure to sunlight for about four to six weeks prior to treatment
  • Avoid plucking, waxing, or electrolysis for about six weeks before laser hair removal is scheduled to take place
  • Discontinue photosensitive drugs for three to five days before the treatment
  • Inform your doctor if you have a history of oral herpes so you may be prescribed prophylactic antiviral therapy

Recovery after

Gentle Yag Laser Treatment

Post - treatment

Many patients can resume normal activities right after treatment since little recovery time is required, during which you may notice some swelling and redness. This is normal and the effects are expected to last no more than a day, but can be treated with cold compresses.

Patients may also notice some mild crusting as the hair sheds off and grows back as finer strands. You will be expected to safeguard the treated areas from direct exposure to sunlight with protective clothing and 30 SPF sunscreen.

To receive the maximum benefit from the treatment, you would need to attend between four to six follow-up sessions, including some minor touch-up visits if necessary. Whether or not total hair removal is achievable depends on your unique situation; however, you will notice a considerable reduction in unwanted hair growth.

FAQs:

Gentle Yag Laser Treatment

How long will the results of this procedure last?
Although laser hair removal has been approved by the FDA as a treatment for permanent hair reduction, it does not necessarily mean that complete hair removal will be achieved. Depending on one’s unique situation, hair may not grow back at all, or will grow back but at a significantly slower rate.

How many treatments are recommended before results may be seen?
Before any noticeable results may be seen, it is recommended to attend about three to five treatment sessions spaced four to six weeks apart.


Does laser hair removal work for everyone?
This treatment works most effectively for individuals with dark hair as lighter strands are not very easy to treat since the lasers actually target the pigment within the hair follicles. With lighter strands, the laser will not be able to precisely detect the pigment in order to destroy the hair follicle completely.

Is laser hair removal permanent?
While permanent hair removal is achievable in certain areas of the body, other areas may require occasional touch-ups. Each visit contributes to further reduced hair growth, reducing the number of sessions you would need to attend for maintaining the results.
