Q. Can I purchase GentleWaves Treatments?

Q. How does Fractional IR Skin Tightening treatment compare to a surgical face lift?

Fractional IR Skin Tightening treatment usually has no associated downtime, and no anesthesia is required. There is no bleeding or scarring and very little risk of infection. The treatment is comfortable—relaxing even.
Facelifts have none of the above benefits. Fractional IR Skin Tightening treatments are designed to treat mild to moderate loose skin. Facelifts do a better job of tightening severely loose skin.
