Skin Tightening

Loose or sagging skin can be a concern for many, but with the Candela GentleYAG Laser, you can reclaim your youthful elasticity. This innovative system uses a non-ablative laser to heat the deeper layers of the skin, boosting collagen and elastin production. This process leads to tighter, smoother skin over time. At Ultimate Image MedSpa, we offer this FDA-approved skin tightening treatment to help our clients address issues related to skin laxity and promote an overall youthful appearance.

At Ultimate Image MedSpa, your comfort and satisfaction are our priorities. Each Candela GentleYAG Laser treatment is designed to be comfortable, with most clients comparing the sensation to a warm massage. Visible results can be observed after a few sessions, and optimal outcomes are typically achieved after a series of treatments. Plus, the procedure requires no downtime, meaning you can continue your day immediately after each session. Take the first step towards firmer, rejuvenated skin by scheduling a consultation with us online today. Let the specialists at Ultimate Image MedSpa guide you to your aesthetic goals!

FAQs

Skin tightening is a procedure by which you can have firmer, smoother skin on the face, chest, arms, stomach or other areas such as scars. By using the deep penetrating, yet safe wavelengths of light from the Candela GentleYAG laser, your skin can begin to see improvement after just one or two treatments.

Generally, we will do three to five 45 minute sessions with the laser spaced 3-4 weeks apart. Each treatment covers the entire area with multiple invisible, yet powerful laser pulses. Generally, the treatment produces a warming sensation within the skin and sometimes it feels more like a rubber band snapped gently on the skin and is very comfortable and tolerable.

Results with the GentleYAG are more predictable than with radio-frequency treatments such as Thermage. Optimal results are usually seen about 90 days to 6 months after the fourth treatment, but may be seen in as little as 1-2 weeks after the second treatment. The laser produces tightening of the skin, reduced wrinkles, improvement in elasticity, improvement in skin texture, pore size and skin smoothness. While skin tightening with the GentleYAG is not a substitute for a face lift, it is an alternative to one.

Patients who are not ready for face lift surgery or do not desire it may find this just what they are looking for. If you plan on having a face lift, GentleYAG treatments can be used in conjunction to improve the quality of the skin, something face lift surgery cannot do.

The GentleYAG may be used as a stand-alone procedure or combined with our other advanced skin rejuvenation procedures such as fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic. The GentleYAG can treat all skin types.

There is no specific age limit for skin tightening in adults. If you feel you have excess, loose or sagging skin, you will likely benefit from this procedure.

Also effective for acne scars, surgical scars and loose skin on the stomach, legs or arms, this procedure can be easily customized to address your problem areas.

Generally, except for some mild temporary swelling of the skin in the first 1-2 days after the procedure, there is no downtime.

Patients like how their skin feels smoother after treatment with the GentleYAG. They report decreased pore size, decreased lines around the eyes, even lines in the treated areas and improved skin texture.

Patients who have responded poorly to radio-frequency treatments have seen substantial benefit with the GentleYAG. Patients love it, our staff loves it. The key advantage to this procedure is no downtime, and one can have the treatment done in an hour and be back to work or play.

Yes. Candela GentleYAG Laser skin tightening is considered safe when performed by licensed, certified, and experienced professionals like those at Ultimate Image MedSpa. We use FDA-approved equipment and adhere to strict protocols to ensure patient safety. As with any cosmetic procedure, there may be risks and side effects, which your specialist will discuss with you during your consultation.

Most clients find the GentleYAG Laser treatment quite tolerable, often likening the sensation to a warm massage. At Ultimate Image MedSpa, we take every measure to ensure your comfort, including cooling systems and numbing creams if necessary.

The number of sessions required varies based on your skin condition and aesthetic goals. On average, clients see optimal results after 4-6 treatments spaced a few weeks apart. Your specialist at Ultimate Image MedSpa will create a personalized treatment plan to achieve the best results.

Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanning products for at least two weeks before your session. If you’re using any specific skincare products, discuss these with your specialist during your consultation.

After treatment, there may be some mild redness or swelling in the treated area, which usually subsides within a few hours. You should avoid direct sun exposure and apply sunscreen to protect the treated skin. Most clients can return to their regular activities immediately after the procedure.
