How long does it take to see results of Candela Gentle Yag Laser for Skin Tightening?

I just had my second treatment with the Candela Gentle Yag laser for skin tightening. My primary area of concern is the slight sagging in my lower face. I can not tell any difference at this point. Also, even though I can really feel the heat of the laser, my skin barely gets red with no swelling at all. Is this normal that I have seen no results at this point and when should I begin to see a change. During my consult I was told that I was the perfect candidate and would see awesome results. I'm ready and really hoping this works for me!!

I have had this done and the results were great, however It took several months to see final results 8-12 weeks post treatment. Be patient you will be thrilled
