The Candela Corporation announced that its GentleYAG laser now offers consumers “skin tightening” treatments adding to the laser’s current applications; leg and facial vein removal. The GentleYAG “tightens” by heating the underlying layers in the skin and forming new collagen resulting in smoother, younger looking skin. The GentleYAG’s patented epidermal cooling system, the Dynamic Cooling Device , protects the skin with every laser pulse allowing for quick results.

“Candela’s GentleYAG Skin Tightening laser is an exceptional new way to get rid of wrinkles and tighten skin”, said Dr. Taylor. “The patients I have treated with the GentleYAG are overwhelmingly happy with the results.” Taylor continued, “Because 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.”

HOW DOES THE LASER SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT WORK?
