Skin Tightening produces firmer and more youthful skin

As we age, the fibroblast, the cell responsible for producing elastin and collegen slows down in how much healthy elastin and collegen is being produced. Over time, the skin looses its luster and it starts to sag and look dull and wrinkles and fine lines start to develop.

Skin tightening is a safe non-invasive procedure that is performed through a light based laser system and works by gently heating up the deeper layers of your skin. Once the targeted areas are heated, the heat absorbed will stimulate the fibroblast to generate new healthy collegen and thus tighten the existing collegen.

What areas can be treated with skin tightening?

The most common areas treated with skin tightening are the face, neck, abdomen, top of the hands and chest. However, skin tightening can be performed on various areas of the body, where there is loose skin.

How many treatments will I need?

In order for an individual to achieve optimal results a series of three to five treatments are recommended. The entire procedure usually takes about 30-45 minutes, depending on which areas are being treated on the size of the surface area being treated. Skin tightening is a non-invasive procedure that is gentle and safe. During the treatment process, most people report a warm, tingling sensation and discomfort is quite minimal.

Are there any side effects?

Some clients may experience sight redness or mild swelling after a treatment, but this usually subsides within a few hours. Usually after a treatment, clients report feeling that their skin feels tighter, smoother and fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable. Depending on the initial condition of your skin prior to treatment, results may vary, but results are usually visible just after your first treatment. There is no downtime for this treatment and individuals may resume back to normal activities after a treatment and may cover the area with makeup. There is some photosensitivity to this treatment, so an individual should avoid direct exposure to sunlight until fully healed and make sure that they are wearing a good sun screen whenever outdoors.
