How Laser Skin Tightening Works:

Lasers of various wavelengths and other heat-delivering technologies have been marketed specifically for wrinkle reduction, including Thermage and Fraxel. However, the versatility of the high-powered GentleYAG, including its efficacy for skin tightening offers a superior and consistent result for a fraction of the cost, level of discomfort, and down time. There are a variety of setting and parameters that can be used, depending on the age of the skin, the depth of the wrinkles, and amount of discoloration, and the loss of elasticity.

Preparation for the Treatment:

1. Do NOT pluck or wax for a week prior to your treatment and do NOT get an injectable, filler or other skin procedure to the area(s) we’ll be treating. This includes chemical peels, facials, Botox, Juvederm, and any light-based treatments.

2. DO shave the day prior to your laser treatment. There will be an additional charge if we need to shave you.

3. Avoid being in the sun without sunscreen on the area(s) you’re having treated for 10 days prior to your treatment. This includes sunless tanning products, tanning beds, and spray tanning. PLEASE stay out of a tanning bed or away from spray tan or sunless tanning products AT LEAST 10 days prior to your treatment. If you get spray tanned, please exfoliate any area we will be zapping prior to your treatment.

4. Also, do NOT use prescribed Retin A on the area(s) to be treated for 7 days prior to your treatment.

5. If you have used Accutane in the past, you must have been off this product for at least six months prior to the treatment. If you currently take any prescribed acne medication, you’ll need to get your doctor’s permission in order to receive a laser treatment.

6. We do not perform laser treatments on pregnant women.

7. Print and complete the Client Information and Medical History, the Laser Treatment Consent, and the Missed Appointment forms found here, and bring them with you to your appointment.

8. Your appointment will be confirmed via an email reminder, as well as a text message from our office, no later than the day prior to your appointment. Please arrive a few minutes before your scheduled time and be prepared to begin the treatment. NOTE: if you’re using the numbing cream that should be applied one-hour prior to the treatment, and you want to apply it when you’re in our office, please coordinate your time so you’ll be ready for the treatment at the scheduled time. If you are running more than 10 minutes late for your appointment, we will have to reschedule your appointment. If this happens, or if you should need to cancel your appointment on the same day of your treatment (or if you forget about it) or are unable to give us an 18-hour notice that you need to change or cancel your appointment, you will be assessed a minimum of $35 per 15-minutes we have scheduled for your appointment. If you have too recent sun exposure and we are unable to do your treatment, or if you have too recent sun exposure and we have to reschedule your appointment, you will be assessed a fee of a minimum of $35 per 15-minute time period we have reserved for you.

During the Treatment:

Once in the treatment room, our technician will review your history and answer all your questions. You’ll need to remove clothing from any area we’re treating. We’ll ensure there is no hair, makeup, or any product present on the area(s) we’re treating, then clean the area to be treated. We’ll calibrate the laser for your procedure, then you and the technician will don the appropriate safety goggles. Let the zapping begin! If you have a low tolerance for pain there is topical aesthetic available for purchase from our office. Please inquire for more information.

Length of Time for the Treatment:

A typical treatment on your face and neck will take about 25 minutes.

After the Treatment:

After a skin tightening treatment, the treated area will usually look a little flush, like you’ve just come off the tennis court with a victory. Your skin will be sensitive to the sun, so you’ll apply sunscreen before you leave our office. We have sunscreen for your use, so don’t worry about bringing in your own (though you can if you want). We also apply appropriate moisturizers after your treatment and will recommend you purchase a post-laser kit, manufactured by Sanitas. This kit contains a sensitive skin cleanser (your skin is sensitive now), as well as two moisturizers that are designed to help facilitate the healing. You will be able to go about your life after the treatment, and you can shower, apply makeup, etc. In other words, there’s no down time after a skin tightening treatment.
