IPL & Laser Treatments > Skin Tightening with Candela Gentle Yag

For those that use the Candela Gentle Yag, how successful are the outcomes of this procedure on the face and neck? When does the pt start seeing results by?

Also, I have seen 2 methods on HOW the treatment has been performed.:
1) With the actual distance gauge/handpiece touching the skin (just like when you use the Yag for Hair Removal)
2) with the distance gauge a few centimeters away from the skin (not touching the skin)

Is there a difference in outcomes? Which is more effective? Or is one method correct?
Please advise.

Thank You
