If you have loose skin anywhere on the face or body, there are a number of laser therapy options available that can make the skin firm and youthful once again. Pregnancy, genetics, aging, and excessive weight loss, are some of the factors that can lead to loose skin.
Building muscle mass can help to reduce the sagging appearance of the skin, but this is often not enough to create the real change needed. Laser skin tightening is an effective yet minimally invasive option that can give you the dramatic results you desire. The procedure is not painful and requires no downtime. The lasers can be used to treat almost any part of the body.
Laser Skin Tightening
The laser energy penetrates the deep layers of the skin and heats up the collagen fibers. This causes the collagen fibers to contract, resulting in the tightening of the skin. Laser skin tightening also results in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and it also helps to melt fat cells. It generally takes 2 to 3 treatments to obtain optimal results, but the skin will continue to tighten over the next few months, as new collagen emerges.
CO2 lasers are among the most effective for skin tightening, and they are also gentle on the skin. The fractional lasers only treat a portion of the skin, leaving the healthy tissue untouched. This helps to facilitate faster healing.
