The Candela Corporation announced that its GentleYAG® laser now offers consumers “skin tightening” treatments adding to the laser’s current applications; leg and facial vein removal. The GentleYAG “tightens” by heating the underlying layers in the skin and forming new collagen resulting in smoother, younger looking skin. The GentleYAG’s patented epidermal cooling system, the Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD™), protects the skin with every laser pulse allowing for quick results.

Dr. Mark Taylor, a dermatologist at the Gateway Aesthetic Institute and Laser Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, conducted a new clinical study comparing skin tightening results of the GentleYAG versus a commonly used radiofrequency device, Thermage. The study found the GentleYAG to be more effective than Thermage. Additionally, GentleYAG treatments proved to be faster, less painful and more economical for the patient and practitioner. The results of Dr. Taylor’s study were presented at the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) 25th Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida.

“Candela’s GentleYAG Skin Tightening laser is an exceptional new way to get rid of wrinkles and tighten skin”, said Dr. Taylor. “The patients I have treated with the GentleYAG are overwhelmingly happy with the results.” Taylor continued, “Because it is so quick and results in little redness, patients can receive a skin tightening treatment during their lunch break and their co-workers wouldn’t even notice.”


The laser creates a beam of high intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue where it delivers a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat. Candela’s Patented Dyanamed Cooling Device technology protects the upper layers of the skin with a cooling burst of cryogen.
