How does the Laser Skin Tightening treatment work?
Laser skin tightening is a non-surgical process that uses a laser which creates a beam of high intensity light that penetrates deep into the skin tissue where it delivers a controlled amount of targeted therapeutic heat. This heating of the collagen under the skin’s surface causes the skin to contract and tighten to produce a more robust skin tone.
How do I prepare for the Laser Skin Tightening treatment?
Your skin should be thoroughly cleaned and dried, removing any makeup, creams, oils, topical anesthetics or self-tanning products before laser treatment. The intended treatment area should not be exposed to sunlight or tanning booth light for 2 weeks prior to treatment.
How many laser skin tightening treatments will I need?
The number of the Collagen Stimulating treatments can vary depending on the severity of the condition being treated. The number of treatment usually recommended is 5. You may see results as early as after the first treatment.
Are there any side effects from the Laser Skin Tightening Procedure?
Normal side effects may include redness and swelling which will last for 24-48 hours. Rare side effects include pigmentation changes, blistering and bruising. These are very, very rare and generally only last a few days.
