Understanding this trend, Candela Corp., has expanded the applications of the GentleYAG to include facial and neck tightening. Candela’s goal was to offer effective and affordable skin tightening with a laser system that physicians have trusted for years to remove unwanted hair and leg veins. The GentleYAG tightens the skin by heating the underlying layers in the skin and forming new collagen resulting in smoother, younger looking skin.
The Candela GentleYAG is an exceptional way to smooth out wrinkles and tighten the skin.
Short of doing a facelift, or a more aggressive/invasive approach, the GentleYAG facial skin tightening offers excellent results without downtime.
Laser treatments for facial or neck skin tightening can be slightly uncomfortable. To minimize discomfort, your laser provider may intermittently apply ice packs during the procedure. Furthermore, the GentleYAG’s patented epidermal cooling system, the Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD), protects the skin with every laser pulse allowing for quick results and patient comfort. Although rare, side effects are possible. They may include redness, swelling, change in skin pigmentation (lighter or darker), bruising or blisters. Side effects do not last more than a few days, and permanent side effects are exceedingly rare. Candela’s GentleYAG laser is an exceptional new way to get rid of wrinkles and tighten skin. Because it is so quick and results in little redness, patients can receive a skin tightening treatment at anytime…there is no downtime.
