Aging is a natural part of life. Over time, our skin loosens and wrinkles begin to appear. Even though aging is normal and happens to everyone, it can still cause a great deal of embarrassment. Thankfully, there are solutions to keep us feeling great about our appearances.
Laser skin tightening is one option to keep our skin looking young and beautiful. This is a process of using an infrared laser to tighten the skin by heating the collagen underneath the skin’s surface. Feeling a little nervous about undergoing with a procedure like this? That’s understandable, but there are several advantages to such a treatment-especially when compared to other surgical options.
First, patients are able to notice relatively immediate results and see visible tightening to their skin with absolutely no downtime after the procedure… and the skin tightens even further over the next few months. There are no incisions or injections made and the procedure should be completely painless. The laser does its job by regenerating preexisting collagen, making it a more natural process than other skin tightening treatments. It is not stretching the skin, simply causing the skin to tighten on its own.
Since laser skin tightening doesn’t involve any type of surgical procedure, recovery is at a minimum and it doesn’t cost near as much as other treatments. Results typically last up to one year or a little more, but can be optimized with touch-up treatments. Patients will see results in the lines on their foreheads, around their eyes and mouths, and on their necks. Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive treatment with relatively low risks. Despite a few possible temporary side effects, the procedure is well worth the outcome. If you’re feeling self-conscious about your aging skin, laser skin tightening may be the way to go.
