Do you have loose skin on your face or body that you want to get rid of? If so, then Laser Skin Tightening may be right for you. Laser Skin Tightening can repair damaged skin caused by aging and other factors. Laser Skin Tightening is a non-surgical, non-invasive, and no down-time treatment that can be used to treat skin anywhere on your body.
Why do you get loose skin?
When you’re young, your skin has a lot of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are two proteins that keep your skin firm, tight, and youthful in appearance. Over time, your body stops making as much collagen and elastin. At the same time collagen and elastin are broken down by things like UV rays from the sun, pollution in the air, certain things in your diet, and other habits such as smoking. As a result, your skin slowly looses its firmness over time. You start to see loose skin, sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles. These can be seen on your face and on your body.
How does Laser Skin Tightening work?
Laser Skin Tightening is an easy treatment that stimulates your body to make more collagen and elastin. This helps firm up your skin, improves sagginess, and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Laser Skin Tightening can also improve the appearance of indented acne scars and cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. Laser Skin Tightening can use used on anywhere on your body. The most common areas treated with Laser Skin Tightening include the face, neck, belly, buttocks, and thighs.
Laser Skin Tightening uses gentle micro-pulses of infrared light to heat up the deeper layers of your skin. This heat is what stimulates your body to make more collagen and elastin. Over time, your skin will become firmer and smoother. The Laser Skin Tightening treatments takes about ten to fifteen minutes and there’s no down-time. So you can go back to work and resume your activities right away. The Laser Skin Tightening gently heats your skin so there’s no pain and no need for numbing cream. Dr. Alex recommends a series of six Laser Skin Tightening treatments. You can do the treatments every two to four weeks. Collagen and elastin are microscopic proteins and it takes time for your body to build up enough of it. So you won’t see results right away. You’ll see your results slowly over time. Most people will see the full results of their Laser Skin Tightening treatment three, six, or even twelve months after their last treatment. So it’s really important to be patient. After your initial series of Laser Skin Tightening treatments, Dr. Alex recommends one maintenance Laser Skin Tightening treatment every three months to keep your skin looking smooth.
