Candela GentleLASE

The revolutionary Candela GentleLASE is a high-energy, long-pulse laser that can safely treat a variety of skin conditions, including facial veins, angiomas, port wine stains, and vascular birthmarks, on all skin types. It can also be used for permanent hair removal.

The laser delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat deep into the skin tissue while its patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) protects the upper layers of your skin and minimizes discomfort with a burst of cryogen. Each laser pulse may be preceded and followed by a cooling spray.

The length and number of sessions depends on a variety of factors including the severity of the condition being treated. Your doctor will be able to provide an estimate before starting treatment.

If you are bothered by facial veins, port wine stains, vascular birthmarks or a similar condition, you might be a good candidate for pulsed dye laser treatment.
