Laser Skin Tightening
Laser Skin Tightening
The Gentlemax laser treatment tightens the skin by transferring heat to the deepest layers of the skin. The non-ablative (non invasive) laser gently heats the dermis (deep layer of skin) resulting in a gradual, no
downtime, healing response. This process then causes fibroblasts to stimulate the precursors of collagen, elastin, and other proteins. By activating enough of your own collagen source, wrinkles and sagging skin can diminish within weeks after the treatment. Think of the process as rebuilding the foundation of the building. New collagen results in smoother, younger looking skin.

Laser Skin Tightening Q & A

When will I see results? 

The optimum results occur anywhere from 4-6 months after the treatment as the collagen rebuild takes time. If recommended, up to 8 treatments may be done approximately 3-4 weeks apart. As gravity and the aging process naturally take place, the skin looses its youthful appearance, but this treatment is a great alternative to a surgical facelift for not severe cases. 

How many treatments are needed? 

Although you will notice an improvement in a few treatments, we recommend a minimum of four treatments for more significant results. The number of treatments loosely follows the general rule of one treatment for every decade of life.

How will my skin look right after Skin Tightening? 

Immediately after treatment, your skin will be red or pinking of the skin that may last up to 2 hours and in some cases tighter than usual for approximately two days.  Most patients can apply makeup later that day or the following day. The downtime is very minimal.

Is Skin Tightening Painful? 

The Candela laser has a special cooling spray to cool the skin during the treatment to help and reduce the heat sensation that patients may feel during the application of the laser. 

How much does it cost compared to other treatments? 

Treatments are about half of Thermage and thousands less than a surgical face lift.

How long do treatments take? 

Treatments typically take about 30 minutes for each area. Examples of an area include the face and neck, stretch marks, underarm, abdomen, upper Thighs and more. The Gentlemax's patented epidermal cooling system, the Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD), protects the skin with every laser pulse allowing for quick results and patient comfort. It is so quick and results in little redness, patients can receive a skin tightening treatment during their lunch break and their co-workers wouldn't even notice.
