Laser Skin Tightening Toronto
Laser Skin Tightening is not to be confused with a skin tightening surgery such as facelift - it achieves non-surgical skin tightening with minimal pain, no down time. It smooths wrinkles and tightens loose skin using light energy to stimulate new collagen growth deep beneath skin's surface. At Q Esthetics Laser Clinic, we provide state-of-the-art laser skin tightening treatment that yields excellent results with the award winning system Palomar Starlux 500.
Large amount of collagen exists in the dermis. Collagen fibers are responsible for maintaining the strength and resilience of skin. As we age, the collagen fibers start to break down and the dermis gets thinner, bringing visible wrinkles and sagging.
Clinical studies have shown that Fractional IR laser treatment is an effective modality for skin tightening. The LuxDeepIR Fractional™ handpiece of Palomar Starlux 500 system delivers infrared light deep into the dermis (up to 6mm). This light causes Soft Tissue Coagulation which leads to remodeling of the collagen within the dermis and hypodermis. The remodeled collagen fills in wrinkles and sagging, thereby tightening skin. In general, once stimulated, the new collagen may last years, hence the prolonged skin tightening results.
Laser Skin Tightening FAQ
What makes Palomar laser skin tightening different from other techniques?
Developed through pioneering research in deep heating, with patented approach to fractional delivery, and other proprietary technologies in cooling, timing and spectrum, Palomar LuxDeepIR safely delivers more effective heat to greater depths for superior skin tightening.
RF(Radio Frequency) such as Thermage is also a popular skin tightening method, but the safety and efficiency of RF tightening depends greatly on the performer's skill and expertise. According to patient reviews at RealSelf®, the satisfaction rate of Thermage is only 38%. This is considerably low when compared to the satisfaction rate of 95% with laser skin tightening treatments performed at Q Esthetics.
What should I expect during/after laser skin tightening?
You may experience lingering warmth, tightness, or redness in the treated area, which fades within a few hours of the treatment. Generally, you can receive a laser skin tightening treatment and go back to work or to other activities without any recovery time.
Usually 1-3 treatments at 4 week intervals is required to achieve the desired result of smoother, tighter skin in the face, arms, abdomen, and other areas. Results of laser skin tightening are immediate and progressive.

Laser skin tightening is becoming more popular because it is probably the most promising and affordable option to achieve a younger looking skin on a more permanent basis.
