How does laser treatment work?
The laser creates a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue where it delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat. Candela's patented Dynamic Cooling Device technology protects the upper layers of your skin with a cooling burst of cryogen. Together, the long-pulse laser and DCD cooling offer optimal treatment with minimal side effects.
What can I expect?
Treatment will take place in the North Jersey Laser Associates, LLC office. You will wear safety eyewear to protect your eyes from the laser light. Your practitioner will guide the laser to the treatment areas with a small hand held probe. Each laser pulse may be proceeded and followed by a short pulse of cooling spray.
How long are the treatments?
Treatments may be any where from minutes to an hour depending on the area and condition being treated. Upon consultation your practitioner will give you guidance on how long your appointment sessions will be.
How many treatments do I need?
Your licensed medical technician will discuss your skin type and treatment needs during your free consultation. Most people need on average 4-8 treatments (some areas may necessitate more treatments).
What patients should know.
Lasers and light sources work best on light-skinned, dark-haired individuals because the light from these lasers is not significantly absorbed by dark pigments in the surrounding skin. The Gentle Lase does not work on grey hair, red hair, or very blonde hair.
