Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a Candidate?
Since laser skin tightening affects the tissue lying under the skin, this procedure can be performed on individuals of nearly any age or skin type. If you’ve noticed looseness in your skin that’s worsened with age you are a candidate for this procedure.
How Does Laser Skin Tightening Work?
Using a special laser that penetrates through the top layers of skin, the tissue below is stimulated to produce new collagen. Laser energy is evenly distributed through the deep dermis (lower layers of skin and tissue) resulting in restored collagen that tightens the skin. During the procedure, a continual cooling spray is used to protect the epidermis, or top layers of skin. Laser skin tightening can be used for different areas of the body including the face, abdomen, neck, breasts or chest and even arms and legs.
Unlike laser skin resurfacing, laser skin tightening does not just remove damaged skin on the surface. Rather, the lasers actually rejuvenate underlying tissue in order to promote a youthful new appearance and restore collagen production.
What Are Treatments Like?
Each session takes about an hour. Most patients report a feeling of warmth at the targeted area during the treatment. Although anesthesia isn’t necessary for this procedure, some patients will take an over-the-counter pain reliever prior to their session to reduce any potential discomfort that could occur. Since the lasers are not invasive, no downtime or recovery period is necessary following your session.
Will I Need Multiple Sessions?
Many patients see significant results following a single treatment, although it is not uncommon for patients to return for another session or two. Individual results do vary, and the laser provider will help you make any decisions regarding follow-up treatments after observing your skin’s response to the laser skin tightening procedure.
When Are Results Visible?
The majority of patients see an improvement in their skin tone right away, but the optimum results won’t be visible for a few weeks.
How Long Will Results Last?
Although results vary from person to person, the skin in the treated area can continue tightening for months after a treatment. A series of sessions delay the aging process by helping the skin to stay tighter and firmer. Once the collagen growth has been stimulated it continues to keep the skin looking young and refreshed long-term.
