Many people have worked very hard to lose weight. Once they lose the excess weight, they are proud of themselves because they have met their weight loss goal. Unfortunately, they often have to deal with excess skin that is the result of their previous weight gain. In some cases, the excess skin can be as unsightly as the excess weight was. It can be frustrating and disheartening to try to lose this excess skin. It is bad if the skin is on the trunk or on the mid-part of the body, but it can be even worse if the excess skin is on the face.
Thankfully, there are various skin tightening procedures available that can reduce or eliminate droopy, saggy skin.
Laser skin tightening is one of the most popular procedures that are used in these cases. It is a non-surgical procedure that uses infrared light to heat the collagen in the skin, which in turn leads to the skin contracting. When this treatment is performed on a person’s face, the effect is noticeable moments after the treatment.
One of the reasons why this treatment is so popular is because it has little to no downtime. In the months following the procedure, the skin continues to tighten.
Laser skin tightening is safe and effective. This is proven by the fact that the FDA has approved the treatment as a way of helping people address skin laxity. Laser skin tightening is not as drastic as a facelift, yet the patient can have moderate improvement without a lot of downtime.
While laser skin tightening is primarily used on the face, it has proven to be an effective tool that can be used all over the body. Laser skin tightening encourages the body to grow new collagen. As the body continues to produce collagen, a person’s skin becomes smoother and has a more youthful appearance.
Before laser skin tightening treatments begin, patients need to take off all of their makeup and any sunscreens or oils they may have applied. During the procedure, the medical professional will use a device to apply pulses of laser energy to the skin.
At the same time, a coolant will be applied to the skin to maximize the patient’s comfort level. The laser will be passed over the same area multiple times in order to achieve optimal results. The time of the treatment depends on the size of the area that is being treated.
