What is Laser Skin Tightening?
Collagen is a key part of young skin that gives it support and volume. As we age, we lose collagen, and this is the genesis of lines and wrinkles. Laser skin tightening uses a special and safe intense light to stimulate collagen production. The laser does not affect surrounding tissues, only the layers of skin where collagen is stored.
Benefits of Laser Skin Tightening
You may want to consider laser skin tightening if you want:
- A quick, relatively painless treatment
- To look younger without surgery, incisions and scarring
- A procedure that takes less than one hour
- No downtime or lengthy recovery
- Gradual anti-aging improvements
How Does Laser Skin Tightening Work?
Lasers are designed to operate specific frequencies, and each frequency only affects certain tissue types. Our laser skin tightening system is set to the frequency that works only on the layer of skin where collagen is stored. A short burst of intense light is all it takes to trigger the production of collagen in a small section of the treatment area. The handpiece is then moved to a neighboring section of skin, and the process is repeated.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Skin Tightening?
Laser skin tightening works best for men and women who have loose skin, wrinkles and fine lines. Deeper wrinkles and creases may require plastic surgery. Most skin tones and skin types can be treated with laser skin tightening.
What to Expect from Laser Skin Tightening
As each burst of laser energy is applied, you may feel a slight pinching sensation on your skin. You may also notice that the skin begins to warm slightly. After the treatment, your skin may look smoother and younger, but the final results may take several weeks. Your laser technician may recommend more than one treatment to achieve the desired improvement.
How Long is the Recovery After a Laser Skin Tightening Treatment?
Your skin may feel warm for the first one to three days. You should use a high-quality sunscreen and avoid prolonged sun exposure for at least two weeks before and after your laser skin tightening procedure.
Additional Treatment Information
Laser skin tightening is an elective cosmetic treatment, so it is not covered by medical insurance. Payment can be made by cash, check and major credit card. You may qualify for financing through CareCredit® and LendingUSA.
