Skin Tightening

As the body ages, it loses much of its elasticity, causing it to become lax and appear wrinkled. For those wanting to avoid more invasive options, such as surgery, skin tightening may be an option. Using our Candela GentleYAG laser, heat is used to contract the collagen in the skin, causing it to tighten and remodel itself over time. Typically three to six treatments are done, with the collagen continuing to remodel itself up to six months after the last treatment. A complete treatment series usually results in the skin being tightened between one and two centimeters, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.
