Laser skin tightening is a safe, noninvasive procedure that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging while tightening and lifting the skin for an overall younger and fuller appearance. This treatment can be used to treat all areas of the face and body, and is most commonly performed on the cheeks and neck.
Many patients choose laser skin tightening for its slimming, firming effects that can be achieved using much less invasive means than procedures such as facelifts or neck lifts. Some patients seeking body tightening may choose to undergo laser skin tightening as an alternative to more invasive procedures such as liposuction or tummy tuck, as laser treatment offers noticeable results with significantly less pain and recovery time.
Laser Skin Tightening Procedure
The advanced laser used during the laser skin tightening procedure heats the underlying layers of skin in order to stimulate collagen production and cause the skin to contract (tighten). The result is a significant reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, skin laxity and other signs of aging, leaving skin that is full and younger-looking.
Benefits of Laser Skin Tightening
Nearly any patient seeking fuller, tighter skin can benefit from laser skin tightening as a safe, noninvasive and effective procedure. The laser skin tightening procedure can be fully customized to help each patient receive the best possible results, depending on the skin condition, size and location of the targeted area and the strength of the laser exposure.
Laser Skin Tightening Results
Most patients can achieve their desired results after four to six treatment sessions spaced approximately three weeks apart. Significant improvements will be noticeable before treatment is completed. In fact, most patients notice changes to the tone and overall condition of their skin immediately after treatment. Results continue to improve over time.
Side Effects Associated with Laser Skin Tightening
After laser skin tightening, patients may experience mild redness and swelling for 24-48 hours.
Safety of Laser Skin Tightening
Laser skin tightening is considered safe for patients of all skin types, as it does not involve any burning or breaking of the skin. Patients can resume their regular activities shortly after this noninvasive treatment with only a minimal risk of rare complications.
