A Bit About Laser Skin Tightening Treatments
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 skins 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.
Clients at DermaSmooth Boutique who have experienced laser skin tightening have been overwhelmingly happy with their results and found the Candela GentleMAX to be an exceptional way to smooth out wrinkles and tighten the skin. The laser skin tightening procedure at DermaSmooth Boutique is considered a “lunchtime procedure.” It can be performed in under 30 minutes, allowing clients to return to work after the procedure. Short of doing a facelift, or a more aggressive/invasive approach, the GentleMAX facial skin tightening offers excellent results without downtime.
At DermaSmooth Boutique the Candela GentleMAX laser skin tightening treatment is non-invasive, it does not result in downtime or a lengthy recovery period. Most people are able to return to their routine schedule immediately after treatment. However, clients should expect to experience some minor side effects. The most common side effects of laser skin tightening treatment are swelling and a redness of the skin at the treatment site, which typically lasts for about 24-48 hours. The skin in the area is also likely to feel warm, much like the feeling that is experienced when the skin has a minor sunburn.
The results of laser skin tightening treatment will vary for each client. Some patients notice results immediately following their first treatment while others will experience gradual results in the weeks and months following treatment. Depending on the severity of the condition being treated patients may require a series of four to six treatments to achieve optimal results. The new collagen that is stimulated is the patients to keep, but as the aging process continues collagen will continue to break down.
DermaSmooth Boutique in Commerce also offers a variety of additional services such as laser hair removal for both men and women along with pigmentation reduction for freckles and dark/sun spots and medical grade skin treatments and facials.
