Laser Skin Tightening

What is Laser Skin Tightening?

Laser Skin Tightening is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser to tighten the skin through the heating of the collagen causing the skin to contract.

It is indicated for patients suffering from sagging and wrinkles on the face and neck. It is recommended also to treat rosacea.

 

 

How does Skin Tightening work?

The rejuvenating effects of Skin tightening are achieved through:

  • Stimulation of collagen production in the treated area
  • Production of a natural skin tightening
  • Flaccidity Reduction
  • Improves skin texture and wrinkles
  • Improve pore size
  • Not invasive
  • It is an FDA approved method to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.
  • Notable results are observed from the first session
  • 3 to 4 sessions are required once a month
  • The highest results are observed weeks after the last session
  • The effects continue to be noticed after months of treatment because it continues to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen.

 

How Do I prepare for the Laser Skin Tightening treatment?

The number of the treatments depends on the condition of your skin. Many factors are taken into consideration, regarding the efficacy of individual laser treatments, including the severity of the condition being treated. The number of treatment usually recommended is 4-6. The treatments are performed every 4 weeks. You will begin to see results prior to finishing the series of treatments.

What type of Laser is used?

We use Candela’s GentleYAG®for laser Skin Tightening. This is an exceptional new way to get rid of wrinkles and tighten skin.

The Candela GentleYAG® “tightens” by heating the underlying layers in the skin and forming new collagen, resulting in smoother, younger looking skin.

The GentleYAG’s patented epidermal cooling system, (Dynamic Cooling Device, DCD™) protects the skin with every laser pulse allowing quick results.

What precautions should I take after a Skin Tightening treatment?

After a treatment, avoid sun exposure by applying sun block (SPF 30 or above). In the first few days after treatment, don’t scrub or rinse the treated area with abrasive skin cleansers. Do not use any glycolic or alpha-hydroxyl acid products following treatment. Treat your skin gently as if you had sunburn.
