Most people do not want to face the fact that they are getting older. Unfortunately, our skin often makes it impossible to ignore the signs of aging. Reduced skin elasticity is a side effect of decreasing collagen production, which is a natural part of the aging process. At Abraza Skin Studio in Silver Spring, MD, we proudly offer laser skin tightening procedures that can greatly improve your facial appearance without surgery or other invasive treatments.
What is laser skin tightening?
For patients seeking to improve collagen production in order to help tighten loose skin, laser skin tightening services can provide exceptional results without invasive plastic surgery procedures like a facelift. Laser skin tightening works by heating subdermal collagen, which causes the skin to contract. This means you will immediately notice the results of your treatment and will not require any recovery time. For optimal results, most patients will require repeated treatments in order to deeply target skin laxity, wrinkles, and fine lines. While the results achieved through laser skin tightening may not be as dramatic as those achieved through plastic surgery, you can still expect to see exceptional improvement that looks totally natural and requires no time away from work or avoiding social commitments in order to recover.
What should I expect during my session?
In order to receive laser skin tightening, you will first need to have a clean face free from make-up, sunscreen, moisturizers, oils, and other substances. A topical anesthetic may be utilized to help numb the desired treatment area, and you will be provided with protective glasses. Laser skin tightening sessions are mostly comfortable, though you may experience some slight stinging sensation as the laser is applied to your skin. At Abraza Skin Studio, you can expect your laser skin tightening session to take anywhere from 30 minutes up to 1 hour, depending on the location and size of the desired treatment area. After your appointment, you can immediately return to all of your normal activities, which makes it an especially convenient esthetic procedure.
Is laser skin tightening a safe procedure?
Many different laser systems for facial rejuvenation have been approved by the FDA for use in esthetic medicine. Laser skin tightening is an incredibly safe, non-invasive procedure that can promote cell turnover and induce greater collagen production. The laser systems used by the specialists at Abraza Skin Studio do not break the skin, resulting in exceptional improvement of skin laxity without the risk for damaging side effects. The most common inconvenience following your treatment is some minor redness or swelling. Because your laser treatment does not break the skin, there is no risk of infection as there might be with other wrinkle treatments. Very rarely, a patient may experience blisters or bruising in the treated areas. However, these complications are exceedingly rare and the providers at our Maryland skin clinic are highly-trained in the use of lasers for skin tightening, further reducing your chance of experiencing any negative effects from your procedure.
