Laser Skin Tightening Toronto
You should not confuse laser skin tightening with skin tightening surgeries, such as a face lifts. Laser skin treatments achieve non-surgical skin tightening with minimal pain and no downtime. It smooths wrinkles and tightens loose skin using light energy to prompt new collagen growth, deep beneath skin’s surface. With cutting-edge technologies and a team including cosmetic doctors and nurses, we are the Toronto’s leading clinic for laser skin tightening.
A large amount of collagen exists in the dermis layer of the skin, and collagen fibers are to thank for maintaining the strength and resilience of our skin. As we age, our collagen fibers break down, and the dermis layer becomes thin. With a loss of collagen and thinner skin – sagging, wrinkles and loss of elasticity or “bounce back” results.
Studies have shown that Fractional IR laser treatment is effective for skin tightening. The LuxDeepIR Fractional™ handpiece of the Palomar Starlux 500 system, sends infrared light deep into the dermis (up to 6mm). This light causes collagen to remodel within the dermis and hypodermis. Because collagen helps to plump, smooth and elastic skin, restructuring begins here. The remodeled collagen fills in wrinkles and sagging, thereby tightening skin, and may last for years.
Other Non-invasive Skin Tightening Treatments
Ultherapy is a safe non-surgical ultrasound energy treatment, designed to lift and tighten the skin. This treatment sends ultrasound waves deep into the skin, prompting collagen production; while delivering a non-invasive lift for the face and neck. Ultrasound technology has been safely used for over 50 years. The use of this imaging means our specialist will be able to clearly see the targeted area and ensure it is treated effectively. Here at Q Esthetics Laser Clinic, we offer this non-surgical solution to naturally lift and tighten the skin; slowing the signs of aging, without any downtime.
Pellevé is a non-invasive, rapid, and effective skin tightening treatment. It uses radiofrequency energy to reactivate collagen deep within the skin; reversing the signs of aging and targeting fine lines and wrinkles. Best of all, it’s pain-free and can treat the gentle eye area, crow’s feet, lower eyelids, and skin on the neck and chest.
Mesotherapy is a non-invasive injection technique; used as an anti-aging treatment to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. By boosting vitamins and nutrients, it helps restore our skin to a more healthy and youthful state. The injections are a mix of plant extracts, hormones, vitamins, enzymes, peptides, minerals, and hyaluronic and amino acids. Unlike anti-aging creams, this solution is infused directly into the skin either by injections or microneedling; resulting in a more effective treatment overall.
Thermage is an FDA approved, safe and non-invasive procedure that’s clinically proven to help smooth wrinkles in the skin for a younger looking appearance. The treatment delivers radiofrequency (RF) technology which safely heats the deep, collagen rich layers of your skin. The heat helps stimulate the formation of new collagen over time, which can reduce sagging, and improve the smoothness and texture of the skin’s surface.
Laser Skin Tightening vs Skin Tightening Surgery
Laser skin tightening is the most desired and budget-friendly option to achieve younger looking skin on a more lasting basis. Cosmetic surgery is the only other treatment that is proven to be more effective. But it costs much more and may come with certain side effects.
Many people begin to note wrinkles and sagging in their 30’s and 40’s but don’t note the problem. They feel as though they are too young for a facelift. scars are mostly well-hidden. But, arm, thigh, and abdomen surgery do create significant scars. Treatment for these scars can be done, and they will also fade over time.
What can I expect from laser skin tightening?
You may feel warmth, tightness, or redness in the treated area, which fades within a few hours of the treatment. You can receive this treatment and go back to daily life without needing time to recover.
The fractional method of this laser targets precise tissue, which provides the same skin tightening effects of an ablative laser; which allows one to recover more quickly. But, because the Palomar Starlux laser can only target a small area of the patient’s skin at once, it requires many sessions at 4-week intervals, in order to see top results. Mostly, you will require 1-3 treatments at 4 week intervals, to achieve the desired result of smoother and tighter skin. Results of laser skin tightening are immediate. When redness and slight swelling subside, you will note smoother, more elastic feeling skin. Over time, and with each treatment, the body creates collagen and cells regenerate. You will see long term results improve over a few months.
