Laser skin tightening is safe for all skin types and can be used on any area of the body to provide firmer, more youthful-looking skin. This advanced system uses infrared energy to heat collagen in the skin, while protecting the entire target area with sapphire contact cooling. The uniform heating effectively targets the desired area and immediately stimulates collagen contraction and remodeling.
This process initiates the body’s natural healing process and a new foundation of collagen is created, improving the tone and and firmness of the skin. The full effect of skin tightening treatments can be seen over several months.
There is no downtime and this process allows you to immediately resume your regular activities after treatment.
How many skin tightening treatments are usually needed?
A series of 4-6 laser skin tightening treatments spaced every two weeks apart is typical of most patients. Your physician will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your physician may also combine skin tightening with other aesthetics procedures to further personalize your treatment.
How soon will I see the results?
Skin tightening is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full skin tightening results often take up to four months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.
What is the skin tightening treatment like?
The skin tightening is light energy that is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for a topical anesthetic, however your physician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas. While the face and neck can typically be treated with 30 minutes, actual time will depend on the area treated.
What aftercare do I need?
No special skincare regimen is required following a laser skin tightening treatment. However, you should always protect the skin from direct sunlight, and use a good sunscreen. Your physician can also recommend an at home skin care regimen if desired.
