If you are beginning to show signs of aging and are considering doing something about it, laser skin tightening may be just the solution you are looking for. This non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment has become a very popular alternative to cosmetic surgery.
Many people are unhappy with their appearance as age begins to make their skin sag or lines and wrinkles begin to appear but the thoughts of going under the knife is just too scary for them to actually take action to regain their self confidence. Surgery always poses certain risks and hospital stays are expensive. Then there is the need to take time out of their lives and away from work for recovery.
Unlike a traditional facelift, laser skin tightening is a non-surgical procedure. An infrared laser is used to heat the collagen under the skin which causes the collagen to plump up and the skin to immediately tighten. Combined with treatments to the skin surface such as chemical peels, intense pulsed light, or laser resurfacing, this can result in the disappearance of fine lines and wrinkles and the reduction of a sagging complexion. You will achieve a much more youthful appearance immediately.
Another reason this has become the preferred choice for many is the fact that it is almost pain-free, has no down time and sometimes the results are instant, but it takes a 3 to 6 month period of time for the collagen changes to be complete. In fact, the results continue to improve over time. There is no need to hide yourself away until you heal and the swelling goes down or the bruising disappears as you would need to with conventional cosmetic surgery. You can literally leave the dermatologist’s office and go on with your day as usual after the treatment.
This procedure is popular for both men and women who want to reverse the effects of aging on their appearance. Normally it will take three treatments spaced at least one month apart to get the optimum results.
By adding Botox Cosmetic and other skin rejuvenation treatments, Laser Skin Tightening provides long-lasting results. It can be enhanced by combining it with microdermabrasion or chemical peels.
This treatment is not reserved just for the face either. It can be applied to any area of the face or body. Some people opt for Laser Skin Tightening to help with loose skin on the abdomen, lifting and firming the buttocks, sagging neck, arms and legs. Anywhere you want to firm and tighten the skin can be treated non-surgically with this procedure.
The cost of your Laser Skin Tightening treatment will vary depending on the number or treatments you need, the size of the area being treated, the type of laser used and the level of expertise of the dermatologist performing the procedure. On average, the costs for the entire course of treatment will range from $1500-$3,500 depending on your area of concern and the desired results.
You should book a consultation with a reputable dermatologist to discuss the benefits and improvements that may be available to you if you are considering Laser Skin Tightening as a non-surgical treatment to reduce your signs of aging and getting your youthful appearance back.
