What is laser skin tightening?

Laser Skin Tightening is the most remarkable development in cosmetic technology today. You can achieve a non-surgical facelift or tummy tuck with minimal pain, no down time, and for a fraction of the cost of plastic surgery. The procedure is an extremely safe, nonsurgical process that utilizes an infrared optical light source to tighten skin and reverse the signs of aging with minimal to no side effects.

How does laser skin tightening work?

When a certified dermatologist performs a laser skin tightening treatment, infrared optical light heats up the dermis in order to cause collagen contraction. The thermal effect creates tissue tightening by the remodeling of collagen and elastin in the dermis resulting in a significant lift effect. In addition, laser skin tightening can stimulate long-term collagen rebuilding after treatment that results in further tightening and the development of a more youthful complexion. Laser skin tightening treatments can be beneficial in the treatment of lax skin on many body parts in addition to the face. It is extremely effective in the treatment of the abdomen, thighs, neck and arms.

Treatment length may vary from several minutes to an hour and normal activities may resume immediately. Some patients may see results right away. For most patients, the results are gradual over a 2-6 month period as new collagen is formed and the skin tightens. Although one treatment will attain significant improvement, it is generally suggested that three treatments be performed at six-week intervals.
