Q. What is laser skin tightening and how does it work?
LASER SKIN TIGHTENING with Kylie Siebrand
As we age, the elasticity in our skin starts to reduce. This is caused by the body’s decreased ability to produce collagen and elastin, and as a result wrinkles and pores become more noticeable and the skin starts to sag.
You can firm your skin with laser skin tightening, a treatment that will restore and improve the skin on your face or on your body. Non-invasive laser skin tightening treatments, using the Candela GentleYag Pro, can dramatically enhance and improve the texture of your skin without surgery.
The treatment activates the skin’s natural healing response, which remodels collagen and produces skin tightening results. The treatment delivers heat energy to the skin, heating the deeper layers while leaving the upper layers intact. The light energy produced by the laser targets fibroblasts in the dermis, which also stimulates the production of new collagen cells, plumping the surface of the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines.
This laser skin tightening treatment is ideal for treating sagging skin on your face, neck, abdomen and buttocks. It is non-invasive, has the same day downtime and is safe for all skin types. The amount of treatments required will depend on the condition of the skin and the treatment area, but generally four to six treatments are required. The ideal skin tightening results will be seen four to six months after a series of treatments.
To get the greatest benefit, combine it with other treatments such a microdermabrasions and cosmetic injections. Ideally, this treatment should be performed prior to commencing cosmetic injectables to improve the skin’s integrity and therefore improve the longevity of your injectable results.
