As we age our bodies begin to break down collagen leaving our skin saggy and loose. Are you tired of sagging skin? For those who want to make improvements to this skin but are nor ready for surgical or ablative procedures we offer skin tightening with the Candela YAG laser therapy
How It Works
Our GentleMax Pro offers a unique skin tightening and rejuvenation option that produces great results. Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process. The laser gently penetrates the deep layers of the skin and subcutaneous tissue causing controlled amounts of heat into deep tissue while protecting the entire treatment area with the dynamic cooling technology. This “thermal damage” stimulates your body’s natural healing ability resulting in firmer, younger looking skin. Added benefits are improvement in erythema, pore size, skin texture and tone. This treatment can be performed on any area of the body and all skin types. Patients can continue on their regular activities following treatment. Full results may take a few months as the collagen foundation is rebuilt and strengthened.
What Can Be Treated?
Skin Tightening can comfortably and effectively treat any area of the body where improvement is desired. Below are some of the more common areas:
The GentleMaxPro Laser Treatment is a unique facial skin tightening and rejuvenation option that produces dramatic results. Laser skin tightening effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles, loose and sagging skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance. Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process. The laser infrared light beam penetrates into skin tissue and a controlled amount of heat affects the collagen under the skins surface, causing it to tighten. Treatment in: 4-5 treatments Results in: Immediately Results last: Retreatment may be needed with aging
What to Expect
Full results are typically seen between 90 days to 6 months following your last treatment but initial effects may appear in as little as 1 to 2 weeks. There is very minimal downtime with this procedure. Mild redness may be noticed immediately following the treatment but resolves within a few hours. Tiny imperfections in the skin may gradually surface and flake off over the next few days leaving the skin feeling soft and clean. Treatments should be done in a series of 4 to 6 sessions and done 3 to 4 weeks apart.
The risks are minimal but there may be some pigment alterations, especially in dark skin types following the treatments. This usually corrects itself without further aid. Occasionally blistering and scabbing can occur especially on darker pigmented lesions. These areas should be kept moist and protected from the sun.
Prior to Treatment
Avoid sun exposure 7 days before and after treatment. Tan or sunburned skin will not be treated.
No chemical tans can be applied prior to treatments.
Do not take photosynthesizing medications during treatment series.
Patients with active infection cannot be treated.
