Along with a skin tightening laser treatment, you may also consider other procedures to benefit your skin health, such as:

Who Should Get Laser Skin Tightening?

The skin on your face and neck is sensitive. It often shows the wear and tear of life more than the rest of your body. Whether you’ve undergone a medical weight loss  program or suffered from a hormonal imbalance  that required you to undergo hormone replacement therapy,  all past health issues take a toll on your skin. Even your years spent frolicking in the sun without sunscreen may show signs on your face. Getting a laser skin tightening procedure early is smart, as it can help you avoid the need for a surgical facelift later. The procedure is especially good for men and women who are between 30 and 60 years, in fairly good health and are seeing signs of aging, such as:
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Deep laugh lines
  • Loose skin, especially around your neck area
  • Mild to moderate skin laxity on your face

How Does Laser Skin Tightening Work?

Collagen and elastin are the two most important proteins in your skin. They provide you with a firm, elastic skin structure. As you start aging, your body decreases the production of these two proteins. As a result, you start developing wrinkles, fine lines, hooded eyes, age spots, crows’ feet, loose skin on your neck or side of your face, and so on. To combat the effects of aging, the best skin tightening laser process boosts the production of collagen, while improving the quality of your skin structure. Using an infrared light device like the Aerolase Yag 1064 laser, Svetlana performs the procedure that usually involves:
  1. Delivering brief pulses of a focused beam of light to the problem area
  2. Activating your skin cells to produce more collagen underneath the surface skin via the heat from the laser
  3. Contracting and tightening the skin structure, which occurs as the collagen heats up
  4. Going over the same area three times to get the best results, per the recommendations of most infrared light devices

What to Expect After Laser Treatment?

For most people, the laser skin tightening sessions last for 30 minutes to an hour. Your skin specialist is the best judge, as the size and location of the target skin isn’t the same for everyone. Although you may feel a little discomfort during the procedure, you can go right back to work once Svetlana clears you after the procedure.

Benefits to consider when you’re thinking about getting a skin tightening laser treatment include:

  • You see immediate, noticeable difference in skin texture. Your skin also begins to feel smoother and softer to touch.
  • Even after the procedure is over, your skin continues to boost the production of collagen.
  • As the months go by, your facial skin continues to improve.
  • In the end, you get plump, youthful skin that makes you look years younger than your age.
  • The treatment works well on all skin types.
  • It’s a safe procedure that doesn’t involve going under the knife. It’s also minimally invasive.

When you’re ready to start looking younger and feeling better about yourself, contact Svetlana Pyatigorskaya at Vitality NP Family Health in Lower Manhattan. At your initial consultation, she’ll review your medical history, listen to your goals and determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
