For skin tightening, our lasers deliver infrared light deep into the skin's dermis, stimulating the body's natural healing response. This encourages growth of new tissue, reducing the appearance of skin laxity on the face, neck, knees, and abdomen. The result: a tighter skin appearance.
While other lasers use one large beam to deliver infrared light into the skin, our laser uses many small staggered infrared beams. This fractional approach promotes faster healing and, because it leaves a portion of the skin unaffected by the light pulses, is safer and more comfortable than the bulk heating approach of many other systems. Our lasers also use a cooling method to cool the skin before, during, and after each light pulse to minimize discomfort.
After your Skin Tightening treatment:
- You may experience lingering warmth, tightness or redness in the treated area for a few hours after treatment. Generally, you can receive a treatment and go back to work or other activities without any recovery time.
- A series of treatments at 4 to 6 week intervals may be required to achieve the desired skin firmness.
