Laser Skin Tightening Q & A
What Is Laser Skin Tightening?
Laser skin tightening is a non-surgical method of achieving facelift results. It helps to turn back time on aging skin by using laser light to heat up the inner layers of the skin and build collagen.
Who Can Benefit From Laser Skin Tightening?
People with a variety of skin problems can benefit from a laser skin tightening session. Many of the common signs of aging can all be firmed up with a treatment, such as:
- fine lines
- droopy jowls
- smoker lines
Additionally, if you have stretch marks from pregnancy or weight gain or would like body contouring to improve your figure, tightening of the skin may be an option for you.
Sensitive areas that cannot be treated with laser, such as around the eyes, can be treated with radiofrequency or skin smoothing treatment.
How Does Laser Skin Tightening Work?
Laser skin tightening works by improving the production of collagen in the skin. As you age, collagen begins to dwindle, leading to sagging skin and fine wrinkles.
By using a laser to deep heat tissues in the dermis and hypodermis, it stimulates your body to make more collagen and fresh tissue, improving the laxity and firmness of the upper layer of skin.
During the procedure, Dr. Cagnes will gently run a handheld laser device over your skin, letting the laser do its work in pulses. To reduce irritation, she will also use a cooling device to soothe the affected areas.
After the procedure, you may only feel a slight warmth or tightness. You’ll be able to go right back to your normal routine without any downtime.
How Long Do Laser Skin Tightening Results Last
You will require more than one treatment to see the best results. This is because each treatment only focuses on 20 to 25 percent of the skin.
By doing just a small portion of the affected area, it allows healthy nearby tissues to aid in the healing process. Most people end up needing four to five treatments overall, depending on the condition of the skin.
However, the final results will begin to appear six months after the final treatment. Your results will last for about a year, after which you will need a maintenance treatment to keep your youthful glow.
