GentleYag Great for Skin Tightening


We use Candela's GentleYag in our office for skin tightening and the patients are very pleased with the results.  We have settings that make the treatment virtually painless while still achieving excellent results.  In general, patients do a series of a few treatments (spaced 2-4 weeks apart) for optimal results.  This treatment is not for everyone and so it is important to consult with a board-certified dermatologist or facial plastic surgeon who has experience with laser skin tightening.  Click on the link below to watch a video demonstration of the Candela GentleYag.
