Laser Facial Rejuvenation includes both the face and neck areas using the Candella GentleYAG laser. The Candella GentleYAG is one of our most versatile laser treatments.
The GentleYAG Laser Facial Rejuvenation treatment makes use of 1064nm Nd Candella GentleYAG Laser for deep penetration into the dermal layer. This reduces facial wrinkles and create a subtle lifting effect. Safe for all skin types, the laser will simultaneously refine skin texture, improve pore size and small scars as well.
There is no down time after the treatment and this makes the GentleYAG laser scan a quick and convenient yet effective treatment. Treating the whole face takes less than 20 minutes. Most patients require a few sessions to see optimal results. An interval of 4 weeks between each sessions is recommended.
This non-invasive infra-red laser has long pulse settings that gently heat the skin and result in a collagen building response. Laser Facial Rejuvenation creates new collagen and skin tightening. Dr. Key was the first author to publish a study on the greater effectiveness of GentleYAG Laser Lift. Dr. Key found better results with Laser Facial Rejuvenation as compared to Thermage RF.
