Frequently Asked Questions

1HOW 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, the level of discomfort, and downtime. There are a variety of settings and parameters that can be used, depending on the age of the skin, the depth of the wrinkles, the amount of discoloration, and the loss of elasticity.The GentleYAG laser uses a non-invasive infrared laser, and long pulse settings to gently heat the skin, resulting in a collagen building response that creates new collagen and skin tightening. At Hello Smooth we recommend a package of 4-6 treatments, scheduled 1-3 week apart. However, depending on your skin, additional sessions may be required. Best results will differ depending on the treatment area. Your best skin tightening results will emerge 4-6 months after the course of treatments.
2WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT?
Once in the treatment room, our medical professional will review your history and answer all your questions. Before your treatment, we will ensure there is no hair, makeup, or any product present on the area(s) we’re treating. We will then set the laser to the appropriate settings and provide you with safety goggles. Let the zapping begin! The GentleYAG laser will create a warming sensation on the skin. Most patients experience very little discomfort during treatment.
3HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT?
A GentleYAG laser treatment typically takes about 30-45 minutes. It depends on which area of the body is being treated.
4WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE TREATMENT?
There is no social downtime following a Gentle YAG Skin Tightening treatment. After your treatment, the treated area will usually look a little flush, like you’ve just come off the tennis court with a victory. Although uncommon, some patients experience mild swelling. Your skin will be sensitive to the sun, so you’ll need to 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). Afterwards, you will be able to shower, apply makeup, etc. In other words, there’s no down time after a skin tightening treatment!By using the deep penetrating, yet safe wavelengths of light from the Candela Gentle YAG laser, your skin can begin to see improvement after just one or two treatments.

Laser Photo Facial

When it comes to treating these unwanted brown and red spots, the FDA-cleared, GentleLASE Photo Facial is the laser to use. The GentleLASE laser is quite simply the fastest, most effective laser on the market which allows us to be more aggressive in attacking the spots on your body. Your skin is safe, but your spots are on the hit list!

1HOW DOES LASER PHOTO FACIAL WORK?
GentleLASE is not only an excellent solution for laser hair removal, but it is also highly effective for the reduction of sun spots (otherwise known as age-spots) brown spots, liver spots, solar lentigenes, and hyper-pigmentation. The intense pulse light is directly absorbed by the pigment in the skin. The light heats the pigment and breaks it up. Its versatility, safety and effectiveness make it one of the most popular lasers used today. For best results we recommend a package of 3-6 treatments, scheduled 4 weeks apart.
