Candela Laser Technology.
At Ashé Laser Med Spa, we have a top of the line FDA approved laser. We offer hair removal services using the Candela GentleYAG (safe for all skin types). GentleYAG's unique combination of a 1064 nm wavelength and Candela's patented Dynamic Cooling Device(DCD) technology allows for greater protection of melanin-rich skin.

Candela Lasers are considered to offer the most comfortable treatments as well as reliable service. A wide range of patient skin types and needs are met with our laser, including the treatment of:
How Laser Hair Removal Works
The human body has a mixture of hairs with varying amounts of melanin, also known as dark pigment, and a combination of activated hairs that are cycling through the growth cycle and hairs that have not yet become active. Most importantly, many factors such as hormones, age, ethnicity, weight, metabolism, and medication all influence the body's hair growth. During laser hair removal, a laser emits light energy that travels through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and hair shaft. Pigments are the substances that give skin and hair its color. The laser works by selective photothermolysis. This means that the light energy is selectively absorbed by pigmented areas. The energy, or heat, from the laser damages the hair follicle, which impairs its ability to grow hair. With time, the hairs that were present in the damaged follicles will fall out, resulting in a smoother appearance and less hair growth. Hair Growth Cycles: When the hair is actively growing each individual hair goes through three main cycles, which are Anagen, Catagen and Telogen.
