Candela GentleYAG Laser For Saggy Skin
WHAT CAUSES SAGGY SKIN
Aging is one of the most common factors of saggy skin, as your skin begins to slowly lose its ability to produce the collagen and elastin that it needs to upkeep and maintain its youthful appearance. It also acts as the connective tissue of the skin, keeping it supple and tight, so this lower rate of production results in the skin starting to droop and lose its plumpness. As you get older, your facial muscles will also weaken which means the effect of gravity causes skin to sag some more.
Other factors may include overexposure to sunlight which can cause damage to skin cells and break down collagen and elastin; this results in an increase of aging effects at a faster rate than usual. Large amounts of weight loss in a very short period of time can also contribute to saggy skin, as the skin has been stretched out over time which makes it harder to snap back into place. Smokers are also at risk of saggy skin as this dries out their skin, making it less hydrated which is important for it to remain plump.
HOW IT WORKS
A non-ablative treatment which is not painful, the Candela GentleYAG laser is not known to cause any side effects. In addition, no downtime is needed which allows you to return to your daily routine and activities without any issue. The non-ablative laser beam emitted from the Candela GentleYAG laser is gentle and converted into heat energy before being transferred into the skin’s internal layers.
This is then absorbed by the target area which kick starts the production of collagen, elastin and other proteins that your skin needs to become supple once more. After this procedure, your skin should be much tighter and wrinkles reduced, making you look younger than before with skin that is refreshed. Most individuals will notice results after 4-6 weeks of treatment.
Do note that follow-up treatments every 4-6 weeks can maintain its healthy glow and slow down the aging process. The The Candela GentleYAG laser is also non-invasive, making it suitable for those who are not keen on surgery or injections to improve their skin.
