FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
What is Laser Skin Tightening?
This treatment is used to address sagging and dull skin that are associated with the signs of aging. Laser skin tightening effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance.
How Does It Work?
Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process. The laser beam penetrates the skin causing controlled amounts of heat into deep tissue while protecting the entire treatment area with the dynamic cooling technology. This initiates the body’s natural healing process which promotes partial denaturation and contraction of collagen. The heat also initiates new collagen production which leads in increased skin firmness. Patients can continue on their regular activities following treatment. Full results may take a few months as the collagen foundation is rebuilt and strengthened.
Does it hurt?
No numbing required and minimal discomfort. You will feel warmth and transient heat throughout the treatment.
How long will it be before I see results?
Patients will see positive results immediately following the procedure, which will continue to improve in subsequent weeks and even months. Most patients will require more than one treatment session, spaced one month apart, to achieve full results.
How long does it last?
Once collagen is formed, the natural ageing process of breaking down the collagen will then take place. Intrinsic and extrinsic factors can contribute to the collagen breakdown such as UV exposure and smoking. However, depending on the amount of sagging skin, sometimes it may require more than a single session.
How many treatments will I need?
Three to six treatments may be required for best results.
