SKIN TIGHTENING

Enjoy firmer, smoother skin

We offer skin tightening treatments with the Candela GentleYAG laser; giving you firmer, smoother skin on all areas of the body and scars.

The Candela GentleYAG laser creates deep penetrating, yet safe wavelengths of light and can bring visible improvements after only one of two treatments.

How are skin tightening treatments performed?

When you choose to have skin tightening treatments with the Candela GentleYAG laser we will usually do three to five 45-minute sessions with the laser, with three to four weeks between treatments.  Each treatment covers the whole area with multiple invisible, though powerful laser pulses.  The treatment creates a warm feeling within the skin which is comfortable and very tolerable.

How soon will I see results?

With the Candela GentleYAG laser you can see results as soon as one to two weeks after the second treatment, although optimal results are usually seen between 90 days to six months after the fourth treatment.  The laser tightens the skin, reducing wrinkles, improving elasticity, improving skin texture, pore size and skin smoothness.  This is an effective alternative treatment to a facelift, although is not a substitute.

If you are not ready for facelift surgery or do not wish to have surgery, skin tightening treatments with the Candela GentleYAG laser may be just what you are looking for.  Quite often facelift patients will have treatments in conjunction with surgery as the skin tightening treatments improve the quality of the skin in the way that facelift surgery can’t do.

Am I a good candidate for Candela GentleYAG skin tightening treatments?

You can have Candela GentleYAG laser skin tightening treatments as a stand-alone procedure, or combine them with our other advanced skin rejuvenation treatments including fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic.

All skin types can be treated using the skin tightening treatments and there is no specific age limit for skin tightening in adults.

If you are worried or concerned about excess, loose or sagging skin, it is likely that it will benefit from this procedure.

It’s also an effective treatment for acne and surgical scars and loose skin on the stomach, legs or arms.  We can tailor the procedure to address any problem areas you may have.

Is there any downtime following skin tightening treatments?

Usually, apart from some mild temporary swelling of the skin in the first one to two days after the procedure, there is no downtime.

What do your patients say about skin tightening?

Rejuva Laser Hair Clinic patients comment about how their skin feels smoother following skin tightening treatments with the Candela GentleYAG laser.  They say their pores have decreased in size, lines around the eyes have reduced, as well and lines in the treated areas and an improvement in skin texture.

Patients who have not responded well to radio-frequency treatments have enjoyed significant benefits with the Candela GentleYAG laser.

Our patients and staff really love the procedure as there is no downtime and the treatment can be done within an hour and you can return to your day.
