What you need to know about laser skin tightening
Laser skin tightening is a non-surgical process of removing the fine lines and wrinkles in the body through heating natural sources of collagen with an infrared laser. This forces the cells to contract, thereby pinching the skin tighter for a fuller presentation.
Treating your skin with this minimally invasive process will boost the production of collagen in treated spots as well as inspire collagen absorption in surrounding areas.
Due to the little recovery time needed and instant results, this form of facial and body rejuvenation has become a very popular alternative to invasive procedures.
FDA approved, this method is safe to use on the entire body and will promote the production of collagen months after the process has taken place.
According to Dr. Rui Ming Ho, “There are lasers that can “destroy” or ablate the outer layers of the skin. In so doing, it causes ‘new’ skin to form and stimulates collagen regeneration during the healing process instead of revealing the inner skin layer. Therefore, the inner skin layer is still where it should be and is not exposed. The result is smoother (and sometimes brighter) skin.These intensive lasers are done at least 1 month apart so as to let your skin heal up completely. It should not make your skin more vulnerable.”
Laser Skin Tightening-- before and after the session
If you’re considering laser skin tightening, first consult a specialist for immediate consideration. Considering the minimal dangers of the procedures, most men and women are skin tightening candidates. Ideal patients are people who range between the ages of 30 and 60 and are in good health.
Skin tightening treatments have proven to safely address dermital issues regardless of skin tone or skin type. However, patients with severely loose skin may be recommended to employ additional services for optimum results.
Before your first treatment a medical professional may consider whether the patient is susceptible to herpes outbreaks or sensitive skin cancers. Most doctors will also advise pregnant women and people prone to keloids to avoid the procedure as it may irritate sensitive skin.
When you arrive to your first session it is imperative to wash away any oil, makeup, or lotion that may affect the laser. Your laser technique specialist will then apply an anesthetic cream to the area and place protective goggles over the patient’s eyes.
The trained professional then uses a small, handheld device that to administer laser pulses into the skin accompanied by a cool wind to soothe the angry skin.
There is no downtime after the treatment and the subject may resume normal activities directly after service. Normal side effects of the laser includes minor swelling and red, irritated skin.
How long does skin tightening last?
Based on the size and area of the treated spot, skin tightening sessions can span from a half hour to an hour.
Typically, most people require two-three sessions for optimum results.
Results of skin tightening sessions can vary based on a patient's individual healing rate and skin retention, however, most patients report two years of sustainable results.
Does skin tightening hurt?
Most patients will not feel any pain from skin tightening treatments. Special precautions are taken such as the administration of anesthetic cream and cooling gusts from the hand held device soothe the epidermis.
The laser does have a mild pinch that patients have measured as less harsh than a spider bite and only hardly noticeable.
Any pain should dissipate within minutes after the treatment and skin warmth and irritation should sizzle out after a few days.
