Candela has been a name synonymous with the elite in laser hair removal equipment for many years. They first introduced the GentleYag technology in the 90s and continue to use that same technology in the equipment they sell new today. The 1064nm wavelength is known by all health professionals to be the most effective in treating hair removal for all skin types. This wavelength reaches the precise depth a physician wants to kill the hair follicle under the skin, and is safe for even the dark skins.
Candela GentleYag also offers several different spot sizes, which allows for treatments in different areas. The spots sizes available are 1mm, 3mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 15mm, and 18mm. This wide range to spots sizes allows a physician to treat large areas, such as back or legs, to small areas, such as neck and bikini areas.
In recent years, Candela GentleYag systems have started to be the top sellers in the pre-owned market. One reason for this trend is the reliability of these systems. The GentleYag is known to run with millions of shots used with minimal upkeep. Another reason for their popularity in the pre-owned market is the ease of out sourcing service. Candela does not have any proprietary parts in their equipment, making the parts very accessible to outside service technicians, and in many cases more affordable when purchased from someone other than Candela.
Candela continues to be the gold standard for hair removal. The desired wavelength, DCD technology, options of spot sizes, reliability, as well as the ease of out sourcing service make them a must have for any physician performing hair removal treatments.
