Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser Skin Rejuvenation/Tightening
What is Skin Tightening?
Laser skin tightening is a series of laser treatments, using the Candela Gentle YAG.
It is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment ideal for treating those tell-tale signs of aging, including jowl and neck laxity. The single-wavelength light energy transfers heat to the deepest layer of the skin, targeting the fibroblast in the dermis, which produces new collagen in response to the laser energy.
Increased turnover of skin cells is also stimulated, helping to regenerate and replace damaged skin. This process, also known as collagen remodeling, results in tightening of the skin, reduced wrinkles, improvement in elasticity, improvement in skin texture, pore size, and skin smoothness.
- Quick and easy treatment
- Deep dermal heating technology provides effective treatment without damage to the epidermis
- Activates dermal regeneration, repair and remodelling
How many treatments will I need?
Clinical studies suggest that 4-6 treatments spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart in most cases will produce a significant increase in dermal collagen. Improvement to the skin will begin almost immediately, but optimal results are usually seen 4 to 6 months post treatment.
What does the treatment involve?
We recommend 3-6 sessions with each laser treatment lasting 45minutes, spaced 3-4 weeks apart. Each treatment covers the entire face and neck area with multiple powerful laser pulses. This tolerable treatment that can feel like a light elastic band gently snapped on the skin, gently producing a warming sensation without causing too much discomfort.
Is there downtime from Gentle YAG skin tightening?
This deep dermal heating technology provides effective treatment without damage to the epidermis. So there is no downtime or external injury to the skin, most can return to work or reapply make up immediately following the procedure.
How long will the results last?
The new dermal collagen that is produced becomes part of the structure of the treated skin and this improvement can last for years as collagen can continue to improve 4-6 months post-treatment.
Continued exposure to the damaging ultraviolet rays of the sun will result in breakdown of both existing and new collagen overtime, so it is very important to protect your results by limiting sun exposure and using a high SPF, and maintaining a healthy and scientifically sound skin care regimen.
Maintenance can be done once every 3 to 6 months in between to keep optimal results.
Am I a good candidate for Gentle YAG skin tightening?
The Gentle YAG can treat all skin types and may be combined with other skin rejuvenation procedures, such as fillers and Botox if treatments are spaced out correctly. While skin tightening is not a substitute for a facelift, it is a great alternative to one if non-surgical procedure is what you desire.
