Laser Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening Before and After

This treatment with GentleYAG will not only tighten the skin, but also it will decrease fine lines, it provides smoother texture, and subjectively decreases pore size. Patients feel like their make up applies smoother.

Patients are treated at one month interval, typically tree to four times. Maximum results are seen 90 days after the fourth session. There is no downtime or risk for serious side effects.

How do laser treatments work?

The laser creates a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deeply into skin tissue, where it delivers a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat. Candela’s Patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) technology protects the upper layer 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 during treatment?

During the treatment you will wear safety eyewear to protect your eyes from the laser light. Your treatment specialist will guide the laser to the treatment areas with a small hand piece. Each laser pulse may be preceded and followed by a short pulse of cooling spray. A treatment could take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the area and condition being treated.

Does it hurt?

Some patients may feel a slight discomfort with each pulse, sometimes described as the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This discomfort resolves in several seconds and is minimized by DCD cooling. For some patients, a topical anesthetic may be used prior to treatment. Be sure to discuss this with your practitioner.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

The number of sessions depends on the treatment you require and the condition of your skin. Many you factors impact the efficacy of individual laser treatments, including the severity of the condition being treated.

How do I prepare for treatment?

If you have had a history of perioral herpes, prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed. Your skin should be thoroughly cleansed and dried, removing any make up, cream, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products before laser treatment. The intended treatment area should not be exposed to sunlight or tanning booth for 1 month prior to treatment.

What can I expect after treatment?

A cool compress or gel pack may be applied for comfort following your treatment. Any redness or swelling should resolve within a few hours.

Are there side effects?

Your risks are minimal. Side effects may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (a laser bruise) in the treated area – these usually do not last more than a few days. Permanent side effects are rare. Be sure to discuss potential side effects with your practitioner.

Are these treatments covered by insurance?

Most insurance companies do not offer reimbursement for cosmetic procedures. Consult your insurance carrier for conclusive information.
