What is Laser Skin Tightening?
It is a non-invasive treatment that uses the ND:YAG laser to tighten and firm stretched and aging skin. Our qualified clinical technicians use the laser wand to heat the collagen fibres under the skin causing the skin to tighten and promoting further collagen production. There is no risk of skin damage, and with no downtime, this is fast becoming one of the most popular procedures worldwide.
How does it work?
The skin tightening procedure begins with a free and individualised consultation to assess the treatment area and suitability of the client. An individual program is tailored to your needs, with treatment beginning immediately after the consultation. The treatable area will be wiped down and protective eyewear given before the skin tightening treatment commences. Your qualified laser technician will gently move a wand back and forth over the treatment area until the desired temperature is reached. You may feel some warmth on the skin, but the treatment process is virtually painless, with minimal downtime.
How long will a Skin Tightening procedure take?
Usually a treatment will take between 10 to 60 minutes, with your first treatment usually immediately following your consultation. There is minimal downtime, so you can usually return to work soon after treatment. You may be a little pink or red directly after treatment, but this will usually subside within hours post treatment.
Am I suitable for Skin Tightening treatments?
Both men and women notice the signs of aging as we get older, including fine lines, sagging skin around the eyes, neck and chest. However since the skin tightening procedure aims at stimulating your own natural collagen production; those who have ageing skin will respond better than those with no problem at all.
What results can I expect from a Skin Tightening procedure?
Laser Skin Tightening is a non-surgical and natural alternative to cosmetic surgery. You can expect to see immediate results, without any of the lengthy recovery time and bruising usually associated with surgical face lifts. And your skin’s elasticity will continue to improve for up to 3- 6 months due to the stimulated collagen production and deep hydration that can be expected with laser skin technology. While the procedure cannot dispatch excess skin, you will experience significant skin tightening in the treated areas resulting in a firmer, healthier-looking complexion with less wrinkles overall.
Are there any side effects to Laser Skin Tightening procedures?
Just like any surgery, all laser procedures come with an associated risk. However, reports of side effects are extremely rare, and never at any Results Laser Clinic.
