The Gentlemax laser has the ability to firm the skin, giving back years to one’s face, jaw/neck area and abdomen, all without surgery or downtime. The Gentlemax gently heats up the dermis by using infrared light causing our skin to produce new collagen over time. The results? Firmer, toner, more beautiful skin.
Who is considered a good candidate for skin tightening?
We can treat any age of color of skin but it is advisable to schedule a complimentary consultation to determine if you are a good candidate. The laser works best on skin that has some elasticity and is in an area that would be considered treatable.
How many treatments are needed?
Four to six treatments are common for most patients. A “maintenance” treatment will be necessary from time to time, usually every 6 to 8 months, to keep the results active.
What should I expect following a skin tightening treatment?
A topical ointment will be applied immediately after the procedure along with sunscreen of SPF 30. It is quite common to feel a slight warmth and see light flushing of the skin that can last up to 1-2 hours. The feeling is described as a warm “breeze” on the skin and in some cases may feel like a very light sunburn for a few minutes post treatment.
Will I see results immediately?
It is common to see and feel the tightening immediately, however, the results will continue to improve over time as the collagen rebuilds and the skin becomes more firm. This process of rebuilding and producing new collagen can take several months. The completion of a series will show the best results.
How much does a skin tightening treatment cost?
The average cost is $400 per treatment, but varies due to location and specific individual needs. Please contact our cosmetic coordinator, Cassie at 804-423-1514, to discuss what area you are most interested in having tightened. A complimentary consultation will be necessary to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
