Skin tightening is a unique facial rejuvenation option that produces dramatic results. Laser skin tightening effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles, loose and sagging skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance. Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process. The laser beam penetrates deep into skin tissue and a controlled amount of heat affects the collagen under the skins surface, causing it to tighten.
The GentleMax Photo Rejuvenation Treatment is ideal for anyone seeking to soften an unevencomplexion, reduce freckles or lighten age spots and melasma. Hyperpigmentation, or a darkening of the skin, can develop over years and is caused by a variety of reasons including sunexposure, hormonal fluctuations or acne scarring.

Facial spider veins are most common around the nose and cheeks; whereas reticular veins are usually found along the cheekbones and temples, under the eyes, around the mouth or across the jawline.
Small facial veins may disappear immediately after treatment. Larger veins and angiomas will darken, and will disappear gradually. To get complete clearing, you may need 2 or more treatments.
Among the many documented causes for developing facial spider veins, exposure to the damaging sun rays is the single most important factor. Fair-skinned people are more prone to develop them than olive skinned or dark-skinned people.
