Tightening Q & A

Frequently Asked Questions about

Skin Tightening Treatments

Q: Why choose skin tightening treatments?

A: This non-invasive procedure is a good choice for the treatment to tighten skin. Laser light penetrates deep into the dermis, deep-heating the tissue in the targeted area and stimulating long-dormant collagen. As a result, the collagen contracts and tightens, producing visibly firmer-looking skin in the treated area. Results of our skin tightening procedure become more dramatic over time as collagen re-builds though a series of treatments. This procedure is effective and safe for all skin types. It can be performed in your home or our office in less than an hour.

 

Q: How do skin tightening treatments work?

A: During the procedure, the treatment area is first cleansed. Next, a laser head is passed over the treatment area in a series of horizontal and vertical overlapping passes.
