Want To Tighten Loose Skin? Try Laser Skin Tightening Treatments

Sagging skin on the face, stomach, arms, and/or other areas of the body can be very stressful to the majority of people.

Though it can make someone appear older and out of shape, for many people, this is a natural part of the aging process.

No matter how hard some may try to work out and eliminate skin sagging, it still happens. In the past, plastic surgery would be the standard recommendation for sagging skin, such as getting a face lift or a tummy tuck. Throughout the past decade, new non-surgical procedures have come to the forefront to provide ways to tighten skin without having to go under the knife.

Laser skin tightening is a method that has been used by many doctors to maximize the results achieved in a safe, efficient manner. Many skin-tightening advertisements can be misleading, but the results speak for themselves when it comes to laser skin tightening.

Works By Using The Body’s Natural Collagen And Elastin

How Does It Work?

Tight, firm skin should snap back or tighten after it has been pulled away from the body. This elasticity is dependent upon healthy collagen and elastin fibres, which act like small rubber bands holding the epidermis tight against our bodies. There are a number of ways in which these collagen and elastin fibres can become damaged, such as through sun damage via ultraviolet lights, aging, smoking, stress, excessive alcohol intake, lifestyle, and an unhealthy diet. These all cause the skin to gradually loosen and sag.

Any laser skin tightening technology works by using the body’s natural collagen and elastin, stimulating growth and causing the body to repair itself. When collagen and elastin are heated, they tend to shrink and/or tighten, slowly remodeling to new collagen and elastic formation. When this happens, the deep dermis contracts and becomes firmer, tightening in the process. This can be accomplished through a heated laser penetrating deep underneath the skin while effective cooling devices are used to cool the surface.

Recommended To Be Spread Out Over 3 Or 4 Treatments

Getting to Know Laser Skin Tightening

Past lasers required long recovery times, prolonged redness, and sometimes difficulties with pigmentation after the procedure. Today’s laser skin tightening corrects all of these issues, providing instantaneous recovery, no long-term redness beyond the hour following the procedure, and no pigmentation problems. The newest laser skin-tightening techniques use small beams to treat specific areas in the most precise manner.

Commonly used to address skin sagging issues on the face, laser skin tightening typically is recommended to be spread out over 3 or 4 treatments. It is important for patients to keep in mind that new collagen and elastin production will not occur until 6 months after your last treatment. It does take time to see results.

Find a Doctor Who Can Perform High-Quality Laser Skin Tightening

Depending on how much loose skin you have and where it is located, alternative methods may be recommended. Keep in mind that any wrinkles, sun damage, or sagging issues can be addressed and repaired through the use of a skilled facial cosmetic professional. When it comes to finding the right doctor to perform laser skin tightening, it is always recommended to go with a certified plastic surgeon, as these are the highest authorities on such procedures. Choosing a doctor who is specifically versed in laser skin tightening should be a major focus of any doctor search. Do your homework and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
