Dr. Key was personally invited by Candela, the manufacturer, to develop the Gentle YAG laser for skin tightening and lifting. The current treatment protocol used around the world today is a direct result of his critical input. You can choose with confidence knowing that Key Laser has the most advanced treatment options available.
Gentle YAG in Portland
Gentle YAG is one of our most versatile laser treatments. This non-invasive infrared laser has long pulse settings that gently heat the skin and result in a collagen-building response that creates new collagen and skin tightening. Dr. Key was the first author to publish a study on the greater effectiveness of Gentle YAG Laser Lift as compared to Thermage RF for lifting and tightening the skin.
What you can expect with Gentle YAG Laser Lift:
- For skin tightening we recommend a package of 3 treatments about 2-4 weeks apart.
- A Gentle YAG laser treatment takes about 30-45 minutes.
- The Gentle YAG laser creates a warming sensation on the skin. Most patients experience very little discomfort during treatment.
- There is no social downtime following a YAG Tightening treatment. There may be a slight blush tone or redness following treatment. Although uncommon, some patients experience mild swelling.
- Best results will differ depending on the treatment area. Your best skin tightening results will emerge 4-6 months after the course of treatments.
