Before we get started reading how to tighten skin and what laser “Skin Tightening” actually is, we require to make sure you know what laser “Skin Tightening” is NOT.
What Laser Skin Tightening is NOT?
In a nutshell, laser “skin tightening” it is NOT plastic surgery. While plastic surgery, excess or saggy skin can be picked and stretched tight around an individual’s face, neck or arm, after which the excess skin is then separated (cut away and disposed of) and the recently stretched skin is then sewed into its new location.
Therefore, it may seem like the loose skin is “tighter” it actually is not tightened, somewhat it is stretched and relocated or repositioned. As you can think, this can be pretty traumatic to the skin.
What Laser Skin Tightening IS?
On the other side, laser “skin tightening” is when the loosened skin itself is internally tightened as if it were a cabled sweater and its inner weave of fibers are now more tightly knitted together than before. This sort of “skin tightening” is genuine, and is because of an internal strengthening of the skin’s collagen model that is in the dermal thickness of the skin.
How Is Laser Skin Tightening Works?
Majority of the patients react best when multiple technologies are joined together in customized protocols that maximize the skin’s capacity to tighten, repair and regenerate collagen. We call this a “Multiple Modality” protocol, and there are significant scientific causes why such treatments are showing to be the most powerful in many areas of medicine.
Technologies that have shown effective for skin tightening are special types of lasers, RF (Radio Frequency) machines, ultrasound devices, and a treatment that uses small little needles called “micro-needling”, or Collagen Induction Therapy.
The Science Behind Skin Tightening
The foundational belief is that such protocols communicate with more elements of a patient’s physiology than any particular modality. This is especially important in laser skin tightening because several different physiological functions are involved in building and managing a healthy collagen matrix: producing new collagen, remodelling collagen, repairing damaged collagen, and reduction of collagen.
Each of the laser machines that we would use in a combination laser skin tightening protocol would be especially powerful at stimulating one of these natural physiological purposes, thus assuring that all the required functions are stimulated and the patient’s skin reacts with the most healthy response possible.
Tighten Skin Anywhere
Another essential dimension of the multiple-modality program is that any skin on the body, in any shape can be managed. The protocols are produced to be customized especially for what that special area of skin needs, such as:
- Mommy Tummy
- Loose Skin after Weight Loss
- Non-Surgical Facelift
- Sagging Jowls
- Stretch Marks
- Turkey Neck
- Tummy Tuck
- Under the Chin
- Elephant Knees
- And many more
Generally speaking a set of 3 to 5 laser skin tightening treatments at around 8-10 week periods will do the deal.
