Using Laser Skin Tightening To Reduce Facial Lines And Wrinkles
Reducing facial lines and wrinkles is a focal point of so many people’s beginnings with cosmetic facial procedures.
Signs of aging are difficult to ignore, and when they become too prominent, they can weigh a person down.
Many cosmetic procedures claim to smooth skin and reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. However, the advancement of technology has made it so that one treatment method in particular succeeds others in being the safest, most precise, and most effective at accomplishing this. The non-surgical option we are talking about is laser skin tightening.
Getting to Know the Basics of Laser Skin Tightening
Minimally invasive, laser skin tightening uses lasers to create tighter skin over time by heating up the collagen inside the skin. This kicks in the body’s natural processes to effectively heal itself. This procedure creates immediate results, and because there are no needles or cutting involved, the risks are low and no recovery period beyond an hour is needed. Throughout the months that follow treatment, skin will gradually tighten. To get the best possible results, typically up to 4 treatments spaced a month apart will be recommended.
How Can the Skin Tighten Using Just a Laser?
Skin becomes wrinkled because it loses its natural collagen supply. The heat from the laser is used to stimulate the remaining collagen and encourages more of it to grow. As new collagen starts to form and replace the collagen that has been lost through aging, the skin will gradually become softer and smoother. If you are searching for a natural way to achieve these kinds of results, laser skin tightening is the procedure you want. There is nothing more effective that has this low level of risk.
What Is the Procedure Like? What to Expect
Prior to undergoing treatment, it is important to remove all makeup, creams, sunscreens, and any other facial care products. This will is so that your doctor can apply a topical anesthetic gel to the area about to be treated. A handpiece will then be applied to the skin, and pulses of laser energy start to work on the skin. A session may last from 30 minutes to an hour. However, the length depends on the size of the region of skin being treated.
Every procedure is brief and painless, allowing a patient to return to their normal activities immediately following completion of treatment. It also won’t leave any visible signs of treatment, unlike a chemical peel, which will leave a very visible red face. Though you may have some redness, this will fade quickly. The skin might feel warmer than normal, but this will also dissipate over a few hours.
