Laser Skin Tightening

What is Laser Skin Tightening?
Often, we have patients who want to improve the look of their skin without invasive surgery. For them, laser skin tightening may be the answer. A non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, laser skin tightening uses an infrared laser that tightens skin while stimulating collagen production. This quick, painless procedure can effectively smooth and rejuvenate sagging skin in the following areas:

How is Laser Skin Tightening Performed?
Laser skin tightening works by heating the collagen under the skin's surface while simultaneously cooling the outer layers. This effectively causes the skin to contract and stimulates new collagen production.
Prior to your laser skin tightening treatment in Hattiesburg, you may be given a topical anesthetic cream, although the process is relatively painless. A skilled professional will use a special hand piece that passes infrared laser pulses over your skin, causing a warming sensation with each pulse. Laser skin tightening is an outpatient procedure that typically lasts between 30 and 60 minutes.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Tightening?
Laser skin tightening is appropriate for both men and women who are unhappy with the sagging skin around their face, neck or other areas of the body. Typically, patients who choose the procedure in Hattiesburg are between the ages of 30 and 60 and want to rejuvenate their skin without going under the knife.
The best candidates are healthy individuals who have realistic expectations of their results. While laser skin tightening can greatly improve your skin's appearance, it may not be suitable for people with extreme skin laxity. In addition, if you are pregnant, using acne medication or are prone to herpes breakouts or keloid scarring, you may not be a good candidate for laser skin tightening.
What Kind of Post-Procedure Laser Skin Tightening Care Can I Expect?
While laser skin tightening is virtually pain-free, you may notice some swelling and redness following the procedure. This should subside anywhere from a few hours to a few days. With little to no recovery time, our patients in Hattiesburg are usually able to resume normal activities immediately, including returning to work.
What are the Typical Results of Laser Skin Tightening?
Most laser skin tightening patients can see results immediately following the procedure. The effects should continue to improve over time as collagen growth is further stimulated. For those who want to enhance their skin's firmness and take years off their face or body without undergoing an invasive procedure, laser skin tightening is a perfect alternative. Even without surgery, the results are remarkable, which is evident in our Hattiesburg laser skin tightening before and after pictures.
