As the youth goes away, a number of physical issues affect a person. Skin also bears the brunt of these less than exciting changes. Sagginess of skin is a common aging issue that can have ill effects on the overall appearance. There are certain factors that cause this problem. Loss of collagen is the main reason behind this problem. To treat this problem, there are numerous options. Laser skin tightening is certainly the most effective noninvasive treatment to rejuvenate aging skin.

Who is a candidate?

Anybody who wants to lift, tighten or tone age-affected skin in a non-invasive way can benefit from this treatment. You may be an ideal candidate for laser skin tightening if:

  • Your skin is moderately lax
  • You want to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles on your face
  • You have moderate sagginess
  • You are between ages 30 and 60
  • You have realistic expectations about the results of treatment

Preparing for laser skin tightening:

  • Limit your sun exposure in the lead up to laser treatment
  • Wear some broad-spectrum sunscreen (SPF 40 and above) before going out in sun
  • Stop tanning and sunbathing for 2-3 weeks before laser skin tightening
  • Discontinue use of products containing Retinoids and hydroxyl acids a week before the procedure
  • Use only topical products recommended by the clinician
  • Do not wear makeup or creams/lotion when coming for the treatment

How is the procedure performed?

The procedure of Laser skin tightening is quite simple. Following steps are involved:

Step 1: The treatment area is washed with antibacterial solution or wiped with alcohol swabs to make it germ-free
Step 2: Cooling gel is applied thoroughly to the treatment site.
Step 3: Laser beams are made incident at the treatment site using a handheld device. Laser beams bypasses the top layers of the skin and work at a deeper level.
Step 4: As the laser light enters into the skin, it leaves the top layers intact whereas the tissues in the deeper layer shrink to tighten the skin above them. Lasers also provide the right set of conditions for the skin to start producing collagen and elastin in greater amounts.
Step 5: Ultimately the skin improves its health and gets suppler and naturally elastic. Some results can be seen right away though the final results take some time as the level of both elastic and collagen continue to move upwards.
