Skin Tightening FAQs
What is laser skin tightening?
Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment that uses an advanced laser to heat the collagen under the skin’s surface and tighten the skin. This treatment helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity to restore a firm, youthful appearance to your skin.
What can I expect during my laser skin tightening session?
Before receiving your laser skin tightening treatment, remove all makeup, sunscreens, oils, or other substances on your skin. We will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment site and provide protective eyewear if necessary. A handpiece will be used to apply brief pulses of laser energy to the skin, while a continuous burst of cool air will be used to ensure your comfort. We may go over the treatment area several times to provide you with the best results. Laser skin tightening treatments typically last 30-60 minutes. There is no downtime required for recovery, and you will be able to return to your regular activities when you leave our office.
Is laser skin tightening painful?
Your treatment should not be comfortable. We will provide a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort prior to beginning treatment. You may feel a heating sensation during your treatment, which can be eased by the burst of cool air produced by the laser handpiece. It is also common to feel a mild stinging sensation. Any discomfort should dissipate within a few minutes after your treatment session, though the treated area may feel warm for up to 48 hours following your appointment.
How many sessions will I need?
Most patients receive a course of six treatments, with each treatment session performed at two- to four-week intervals. It may take up to four treatments before you begin seeing results, and improvement to your skin can continue for up to six months following completion of your treatment.
