Considered to be a distinctive and effective facial rejuvenation method, laser skin tightening treats loose skin and decreases wrinkles, ultimately making the skin smoother, beautiful and more youthful.
Laser skin tightening is an FDA approved non-surgical procedure that employs laser beams to heat the collagen under the skin and as a result, tighten the skin. Results of the procedure become apparent and visible immediately after the procedure. Since the process involves no downtime, it has turned out to be a very popular and trendy skin tightening method.
According to Dr. Shumaila, maximum and effective outcomes need 2 – 3 laser skin tightening sessions, each after around a month. Moreover, the procedure is safe and risk-free to give you a firm skin.
Laser skin tightening triggers the production of collagen in the areas under treatment and boosts the absorption of extra collagen from the nearby skin. The reproduction of new collagen prompts the appearance of softer and smoother skin. Even though the results of the treatment become noticeable right after the procedure, but the effects sustain over the coming few months to until the treated area’s natural deposits of collagen slowly top up.
Ahead of starting your skin tightening treatment, you would be asked to wash all make-ups, sunblock and oils on the skin. Afterwards, your dermatologists will spread a topical anesthetic cream to the skin and give you a protective eyewear to avert any potential damage. Patients who think they cannot tolerate the minimal discomfort may take an over-the-counter pain killer ahead of the treatment.
Just after undergoing last skin tightening treatment, the patient can return to work or perform other daily activities. Moreover, minimal side effects are observed in patients who undergo this procedure. Patients may sense warm sensation to the treated skin or may notice redness or little inflammation. These minor side effects will go away naturally within few hours of the treatment.
Women and men aged 30 to 60 are good candidates for laser skin tightening, according to Dr. Shumaila. People in good health will notice effective repair of the treated skin. People of any skin type and tone can be good candidates for this procedure; however, you must consult your dermatologist to know more about your candidacy.
