As with IPL Photofacial treatments, laser skin tightening also draws upon the power of light energy to dramatically improve the look, texture and health of your skin by significantly reducing skin laxity and diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Within days, you’ll begin to see tighter, firmer, smoother skin that continues to improve over the following months.
Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive procedure that uses infrared light to tighten the skin’s upper layer. During a treatment session, your nurse practitioner or ARNP will go over the surface of your skin with a laser handpiece that emits high-intensity light beams into your skin’s deeper layers. This light energy gently heats the collagen below the skin’s surface, causing it to contract. This serves to tighten the collagen and elastin reserves already present in the skin. Plus, the carefully controlled heat energy further stimulates the body’s natural production of more collagen, the structural tissue that lends volume and smoothness to visible skin.
While undergoing a laser skin tightening treatment session, you may feel a slight discomfort similar to a rubber band snap against your skin’s surface. Depending upon your skin’s condition and your desired outcome, treatment sessions may range from 15 to 30 minutes, and repeated sessions (typically six treatments spaced two to three weeks apart) may be needed for optimal results. Following a treatment session, you may feel a warm sensation to your skin and experience redness or mild swelling – all of which goes typically goes away within a few hours.
Laser skin tightening is effective for all skin types and tones and can be used to tighten, smooth and rejuvenate virtually all areas of the body including the face, neck, abdomen, arms, legs, and buttocks. Ideal patients are between the ages of 30 and 60 and in good health. Most see immediate changes in the tone and condition of their skin, and continued improvement with the growth of new collagen over the next three to six months.
