As we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity and starts to sag. This causes wrinkles and can make us look much older than we really are. Certain environmental factors can contribute to skin laxity, as well as constantly pulling or rubbing the skin. Most individuals are already familiar with what a facelift can accomplish, but did you know that laser skin tightening is a non-surgical way to achieve the same goal?
For anyone interested in non-surgical facial tightening, laser skin tightening is a great option to consider. You can achieve tight, smooth, youthful skin without the hassle and headache of surgery.

What is Laser Skin Tightening?
Heat is the secret to many different anti-aging treatments, and laser skin tightening is no exception. Using the heat from the laser, the device can stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. These are two components that contribute to youthful, smooth skin. If you are suffering from loose skin, it is probably due to a deficiency in collagen and elastin, which happens to most people as they age.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Each individual visit us with different needs and goals, so how many treatments you need depend on what you are looking for. Most patients, however, achieve optimal results after two or three skin tightening treatments. The results are a little less dramatic than that of surgery, but the fact that there is no downtime associated with laser treatments is a huge benefit.
Your results will continue to improve the months following your treatment session as new collagen and elastin are produced. Each treatment session may last anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour, and most patients experience little to no discomfort throughout the session.
Who is a Good Candidate?
The ideal candidate for a laser skin tightening treatment is someone who has moderate skin laxity. If you have severe sagging, it may be wise to consider facelift surgery instead. Our professionals can help you determine if a non-surgical laser treatment is right for you. We recommend that you be between the ages of 30 and 60 in order to consider this treatment as a viable option. This treatment is an effective option for all skin types and tones.
