Laser Hair Removal
GentleYAG Astonishing, permanent laser hair removal
We all want to appear effortlessly beautiful, but the reality is that looking good can be a lot of work, especially if we are prone to unwanted body and facial hair. Waxing, shaving, tweezing and plucking is expensive, time-consuming and often painful. Worst of all, these actions must be repeated on a regular basis to control the onslaught of new hair growth. Recent advances saw the invention of electrolysis, but even this longer-lasting treatment has significant drawbacks, such as discomfort, skin damage and extended procedure times.
Stepping in to revolutionize hair removal in our Charlotte, NC offices is Candela’s breakthrough laser, the GentleYAG. This exceptional technology provides precise, painless hair elimination while its built-in cooling action protects delicate surrounding skin tissue. GentleYAG provides a variety of settings for maximum energy control. Gentle extended wavelengths from the laser penetrate the hair follicles at their core, crippling any future growth and leaving your skin silky smooth to the touch in just 2-6 visits.
Exciting benefits of the GentleYAG laser include…
- Ideal for treating the back, bikini area, chest, neck, armpits, arms, legs and face.
- Cools the skin simultaneously
- No goopy gels or creams
- 15-minute sessions
- Safe all types and tones of skin and all ages
- Boosts self-confidence and attractiveness

- Fades blemishes, scars, birthmarks and sunspots
- Tightens loose skin
How can I select the best laser hair removal specialist in Charlotte, NC?
Owning the most technically sophisticated machinery and equipment in the world does not in itself make someone a qualified authority in the field of cosmetic laser therapy. Entrusting your face and body to anyone without rigorous training, credentials and expertise is a recipe for disaster. When you receive treatment from a board certified surgeon or dermatologist, on the other hand, you can rest assured that you will not only receive exemplary results, but that in the case of any complications, your health will be in the hands of a competent medical doctor rather than a “technician” that may be working at a spa or salon.
At PPSD, every procedure takes place at an AAAASF-certified, state-of-the-art facility under the watchful eye of a board-certified physician. We offer the very latest in laser technology, constantly upgrading our techniques and equipment to reflect the most exciting trends in the industry. PPSD is pleased to offer our clients spectacular, previously unattainable outcomes with the powerful GentleYAG hair removal laser.
During your consultation
When you meet with your Charlotte NC laser hair removal doctor, he or she will conduct an in-depth assessment of your goals, needs and medical history in order to determine if GentleYAG laser therapy is right for you. Because there is a small risk that the treatment could affect your skin’s pigmentation, sometimes the doctor will need to perform patch tests in advance. Integrity demands that we put your safety and satisfaction above sales tactics. If your hair is gray or blonde, GentleYAG will not work on your pigment. In this case, the doctor will explain your options and help you find an alternative solution.
We proudly serve clients throughout the North Carolina area and beyond, with conveniently located offices in the cities of Charlotte, Gastonia, Hickory and Shelby.
What happens after my GentleYAG laser hair removal treatment?
A majority of Charlotte, NC laser hair removal clients report mild redness and discomfort after treatment, akin to a light sunburn. However, this typically subsides within hours, or by the next day and can be alleviated with a cold compress. Normal activities can be resumed immediately. Be sure to adequately protect your skin with sunblock that boasts an SPF of at least 30.
Improvements after laser hair removal can be seen right away (clients may notice hairs being shed for a week or two that do not grow back), however it usually takes 2-6 GentleYAG sessions over the course of a few months to produce significant results. Once these are achieved, however, the hair loss is permanent.
