Laser Skin Tightening
A unique facial rejuvenation option that produces dramatic results, laser skin tightening effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance.
How Does Laser Skin Tightening Work?
Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses an infrared light source (a laser) to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten). Facial skin tightening is noticeable immediately after the treatment, and there is no downtime, making this an increasingly popular procedure. Additional skin tightening occurs over the next few months, but optimal results usually require two or three treatments about a month apart.
Is Laser Skin Tightening painful?
Some patients may feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, sometimes described as the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This discomfort resolves in several seconds. Topical anesthetic can be applied to help ease the discomfort in more sensitive clients. Be sure to discuss this with your practitioner.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of GentleMAX treatments depends on the condition of your skin, usually 4-6 sessions on average. A GentleMAX treatment usually takes between 30 to 45 minutes.
Any Side effects?
One of the greatest benefits of laser skin tightening is the minimal amount of risk associated with the procedure. Skin tightening occurs immediately, and results continue to improve over the next several weeks. Most patients experience a pink glow with a mild sunburn sensation after skin tightening treatment.
