The results can be dramatic and is less invasive than other rejuvenating procedures, such as facelift and body lift procedures, making the technique a popular choice for many patients. It is also a versatile, safe and pain-free procedure, which is effectively used for both face and body, achieving impressive results with very minimal side effects and reduced downtime following treatments.
Laser skin tightening uses the laser to heat the collagen under the surface of the skin, causing the collagen to expand and the skin to appear tighter (contract). This process stimulates the growth of new collagen in the skin, and restores skin tightness and smoothness. The impressive results of facial skin tightening are immediately noticeable after treatment.
Each patient will generally feel a brief heating sensation as the laser is used. The only side effects that are experienced is some redness and mild swelling in the treated area(s), which is visible immediately after treatment. This usually lasts for only a short amount of time and should dissipate within a few hours.
