Skin Tightening by Laser
Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses an infrared light source (a laser) to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten). Facial skin tightening is noticeable immediately after the treatment, and there is no downtime, making this an increasingly popular procedure. Additional skin tightening occurs over the next few months, but optimal results usually require two or three treatments about a month apart.
Laser skin tightening effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance. Patients experience firmer skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles, and there is no downtime.
One of the greatest benefits of laser skin tightening is the minimal amount of risk associated with the procedure. Skin tightening occurs immediately, and results continue to improve over the next several weeks. Risks associated with laser skin tightening include temporary reddening of the skin, a slight chance of scarring, and the possibility of brief lightening or darkening of the skin in treated areas.
