Laser Skin Tightening –How Does It Works?
Age impacts us all, and with it comes more lax skin that can make our facial features appear older than we really are. One of the best ways to combat the signs of lax skin and aging is with laser skin tightening, a rejuvenating treatment that can be completed in a short time. Laser skin tightening, also known as the lunchtime lift, renews the collagen production in your skin, improving its appearance after just your first treatment.
How It Works
We offer a variety of skin tightening treatments to treat the signs of aging, and each treatment works a little differently. Laser skin tightening works by using an infrared light or laser to heat up the skin, causing it to contract and renewing collagen production. This procedure can be used not just on the face, but also other parts of the body to restore a youthful appearance. Other treatments such as Forma use radio frequency technology and are paired with fat removal treatments. This treatment promotes collagen production and will increase your skin elasticity.
Laser skin tightening results can be seen right after your first treatment. Skin tightening will continue to develop over two to three months, after which optimal results can be noticed. Laser skin tightening is a noninvasive procedure, allowing you to experience very little downtime, with most patients returning to work right away.
Patients should expect their laser skin tightening procedure to be completed in as an outpatient in our offices. The treatment may cause mild discomfort, but a continuous cold air blows across your face as the laser is in use to help you remain pain-free. Most patients report feeling comfortable throughout the entire procedure, with most sessions lasting as little as half an hour. Session length may vary depending on the size and location where the laser skin tightening will be completed. The results of laser skin tightening are not as dramatic as facelifts. Some changes may be subtle depending on the patient’s skin type. Patients will learn about the process of laser skin tightening and what to expect during their free consultation.
