How Does Laser Skin Tightening Work?
The non-invasive laser uses waves of therapeutic heat to treat the collagen and elastin fibers within the skin. This heating effect provokes a contraction of the aged and disorganized collagen fibers. By heating tissue to lift and tighten the underlying foundation, the treatment helps strengthen the skin and stimulate the fibroblasts to begin the growth of new collagen. The frequencies will heat up the water content within the skin, causing a uniformed heating effect. This process, also known as collagen remodeling, results in firmer and smoother skin with natural-looking results!
Benefits of this treatment include:
- Tighter, younger-looking skin
- Treat lax, loose, or sagging skin
- Non-Surgical, non-invasive
- No downtime
- Natural-looking results
A series of microdermabrasions or chemical peels prior to the laser treatment will result in better stimulation of the collagen and elastin fibers. New collagen growth will continue for four to six months post-treatment.
Results are often visible immediately but improve over time, offering a great option for those with minor to moderate skin laxity, as opposed to more invasive procedures.
