Laser Skin Tightening
What is Laser Skin Tightening?
Laser skin tightening works by creating a beam of high-intensity light that delivers a controlled amount of heat to the treatment area. Treatments last from just a few minutes up to an hour. The time of treatment is dependent on the area being treated. This series of treatments results in collagen deposition over time. Skin tightening is available for the face, neck and décolletage. The treatment feels much like the snapping of a small rubber band. Most patients feel very little discomfort.
What Can Laser Skin Tightening Be Used For?
Laser skin tightening is recommended for signs of aging that are caused by sagging skin, such as wrinkles and folds.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Skin Tightening?
Collagen levels in the skin begin to decline as we age. Laser skin tightening treatment is best suited for ages 50 and up. This treatment can also be combined with other procedures including age spot removal and spider vein removal.
Are There Any Risks to Laser Skin Tightening?
Few, if any risks, exist for laser skin tightening. We recommend the treatment for all skin types. You may not be a good candidate if you have certain medical or skin conditions. We will discuss your candidacy for laser skin tightening and our other treatments during the consultation.
How Many Skin Tightening Treatments Will I Need?
The number of sessions needed will vary.
Are There Any Side Effects After Laser Skin Tightening?
Your skin may be slightly red for the first 24 hours. We recommend that you use sunscreen when outdoors.
How Soon Can I Return to Normal Activities After Treatment?
You can resume normal activity immediately after treatment.
