Laser skin tightening is a popular option that doesn’t require any downtime.
Used for the treatment of skin laxity, wrinkles, and fine lines, it’s been proven to be effective and safe for use anywhere on the body, providing patients with a more youthful appearance and firmer skin.
Facial skin tightening utilizes a laser to heat collagen beneath the surface of the skin. This causes the skin to tighten, is non-surgical, minimally invasive, and results can be seen immediately after treatment. When you want laser skin tightening come to New Image Med Spa.
Preparing for Laser Skin Tightening
When you come in for laser skin tightening with one of our certified Estheticians, there are some steps important steps we will take first. Before using an IFL for skin tightening, it’s important that the area to be treated is free of substances. This includes sunscreen, make-up, and oil. Your Esthetician will clean the area, applying a topical anesthetic and protective eyewear prior to treatment. This is satisfactory for nearly all patients, but if you have a reduced tolerance to pain it may be advisable to take over-the-counter pain medication before your treatment.
Laser Skin Tightening Treatment
Infrared light source skin tightening should not cause undue discomfort. The majority of patients only feel a mild heat from the laser and cooling sensation from the handpiece. Your Esthetician will use a laser to apply brief pulses of energy directed at the treatment area. The handpiece also emits continuous bursts of cool air. This cools the skin and alleviates discomfort. Treatments can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, and it can take up to three sessions before optimal results are achieved.
Does Laser Skin Tightening Work?
As an FDA Approved treatment method laser skin tightening has been proven to provide results. These are often apparent immediately after a treatment has finished. Patients generally see continual improvement and increased results over the course of several months as additional skin tightening occurs. For optimal results multiple sessions are often required, occurring at roughly month-long intervals.
Skin tightening procedures also promote new collagen growth in treated areas. This provides near-immediate results as patients enjoy softer, smoother skin. Many patients have described the treatments as having given them a more youthful appearance.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Skin Tightening?
Anyone in good health is a candidate for laser skin tightening. Benefits can be made with fine line and wrinkle reduction, as well as the tightening of loose facial skin.
