What You Need to Know About Laser Skin Tightening

All About Laser Skin Tightening

Laser tightening of the skin is a great non-invasive way to get firm skin along the body, neck, and face. It is suitable for all skin types, age ranges, and there is little to no downtime following treatment. If you are interested in getting tighter skin quickly, Ava Laser Clinic has listed all the information you need to know about laser skin tightening below to help you consider if this procedure is right for you.

Why Does Skin Become Loose?

As a person ages, their body begins to produce less elastin and collagen. Once a person passes 30, the effects of this lower production start to become visible. The two proteins are in charge of keeping our skin toned, plump, and firm. Other factors, such as illness, childbirth, and diet, can also affect the health and look of a person’s skin.

Where Can Laser Treatments Be Used?

You can get a laser treatment on virtually any part of your body where you want tighter, more youthful-looking skin. Different lasers will be more effective for different parts of the body. For example, a strong and highly effective laser for the thighs and butt won’t be as effective for delicate areas such as your under-eye or neck. The certified medical estheticians at our Richmond Hill laser clinic would be happy to suggest the best treatments for your skin during a consultation.

Is Laser Tightening Treatment Painful?

Any cosmetic procedure will cause some amount of discomfort. Laser treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive, which places them along the lowest end of the pain spectrum. In most cases, there is a temporary feeling of mildly uncomfortable heat over the treatment area. Many people enjoy this feeling and equate it with the heat generated by a hot stone massage.

What Kind of Skin Tightening is Available?

The main options are:

– Ultrasound

This form of treatment is the strongest. It targets deeper layers of the skin and works to both lift and firm the skin with focused ultrasound energy beams. The energy is applied with a handheld device that heats the skin with ultrasound waves. Most people can achieve their desired results within two sessions. Each session lasts between 45 to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. While some results can be seen right away, the best results are not noticeable for at least three months.

There is no downtime with this procedure, and many people will go in during their lunch break to complete a session. The cost per session varies depending on the size and the area treated. Prices can range from $500 up to $6,000 per session.

– Radiofrequency

This method also uses a handheld device to tighten the skin. The beam does not penetrate as deeply, but the heat is more controlled. The radiofrequency beam triggers the production of collagen, and a person will typically need at least six treatments to see the best results. Sessions can be completed a 1or 2 weeks apart, and most sessions last an hour each.

There is no downtime with this procedure. Treatment can be completed over a lunch break or even before or after work. The cost per session varies depending on the size and the area treated. Prices can range from $200 up to $500 per session.

– Radiofrequency Microneedling CBT

This is a common treatment used to help tighten skin and improve texture. Unlike a micro-needling pen, this procedure uses a motorized stamper formed from 36 to 100 gold plated poles and then radiofrequency is beamed into those spots to tighten the treatment area. Most people will need between four and six treatments to see the best results. Sessions can be spaced out in 3 to 6-week increments.

With this procedure, you must refrain from exercise and topical products such as makeup for at least 48 hours. The cost per session varies depending on the size and the area treated. Prices can range from $300 up to $1,000 per session.
