No longer do you need to undergo intrusive surgery to tighten the skin on your face and body, as laser skin tightening treatment is readily available these days. It helps reduce fine lines while promoting the production of collagen to instantly tighten up your facial skin, or indeed any area of your body that requires tightening. And all of this without even going under the knife. It is an effective way to reproduce current anti-aging therapy, without any of the pain associated with surgery. Read our post to find out whether laser skin tightening treatment is for you.
What Is Laser Skin Tightening?
This non-surgical process uses an infrared laser to heat the collagen under the skin’s surface; this then causes the contraction of the skin which then tighten up. It’s a fairly spontaneous treatment as it is noticeable after treatment, with no downtime, which is why it is such a popular. You will find, post-treatment that there will be extra tightening over the months following treatment, but for optimal results, you will generally require about two to three visits four weeks apart. It may not be as dramatic as a facelift, but the results will still give your skin a youthful appearance.
Collagen Growth Encouraged
By undergoing laser skin tightening, it will:
- Encourage the growth of collagen in the areas where the treatment occurs.
- Promote its absorption in the surrounding areas that have not been treated.
- Regeneration makes the skin smoother and softer, meaning your wrinkles are reduced.
- When applied to other areas of your body, it gives you a more athletic looking body.
What To Expect And Is It Painful?
Before your treatment, ensure that all oils and creams have been removed, including make-up and other substances that might be on the skin. Your practitioner will apply an anesthetic cream to the area about to be treated, and bursts of laser energy are applied to the skin. A continuous and steady stream if cool air to the skin helps diminish any potential discomfort, with many patients likening the feeling to one of a tingling sensation.
Sessions usually last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and side effects are minimal with a slight redness or subtle swelling, which will disappear within a few days. One of the main benefits of laser skin tightening is that it has almost the same results as plastic surgery, without any lengthy recovery time. That means, immediately after treatment you can return to your normal life, as if you just walked in, then out, of a shop.
