Tightening the loose skin can drastically improve the appearance. Laser skin tightening treatment is a unique facial skin rejuvenation treatment to treat the loose skin and wrinkles treatment. It makes your skin smooth by reducing the signs of aging.
It is less invasive and non-surgical skin tightening process that uses an infrared light source (a laser). It tightens the skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract. It encourages the production of new collagen in the treated area and promotes the absorption of collagen by the skin from other areas as well. When the collagen starts regenerating, you can notice the smoother and improved skin texture.
Skin Tightening Treatment Benefits:

Types of Skin Tightening Treatment
Radiofrequency (Thermalift, Thermage, and Exilis):Thermalift works on the principle of restoring lost collagen. In this procedure, a device is used to apply controlled radio waves to the area of your skin that you would like to tighten. The procedure is done with topical or no anesthesia, and no recovery time (downtime) is required. It requires one treatment session, but some patients benefit from multiple sessions.
Intense pulsed light/radiofrequency (Velashape): Velashape is a device that is believed to target and shrink fat cells. A handheld device sends infrared waves into the skin layers to break apart fat deposits. Radiofrequency waves are also used. This procedure doesn’t require anesthesia. Several appointments are usually recommended to get the most visible results.
Result of the Treatment
You will see a change in skin tone after the skin tightening treatment. But since the objective of Laser Skin Tightening treatment is to stimulate natural growth of collagen so the new collagen growth takes from 90 to 180 days after the initial treatment. It is recommended to take up to 6 treatments, generally spaced roughly three weeks apart.
