Laser Skin Tightening
Have you been seeking a safe, non-surgical option to tighten up lax skin and wrinkles? Laser Skin Tightening smooths wrinkles and tightens loose skin using targeted light energy to stimulate new collagen growth, deep beneath skin’s surface*. At Q Esthetics Laser Clinic , we provide a state-of-the-art laser skin tightening treatment, which achieves truly impressive results with the award winning system – Palomar Starlux 500.
A large amount of collagen exists in the dermis layer of the skin. Collagen fibers are responsible for maintaining the strength and resilience of our skin. As we age, the collagen fibers we naturally have in our skin start to break down and the dermis layer becomes thinner. With a loss of natural collagen and thinner skin, sagging, wrinkles and loss of elasticity or “bounce back” becomes evident in tissues.
Clinical studies have shown that Fractional IR laser treatment is an effective modality for skin tightening. The LuxDeepIR Fractional™ handpiece of the 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. Because collagen contributes to plump, smooth and elastic skin, restructuring begins here. 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*. The StarLux 500 Is the latest industry leader for this technology, and this equipment surpasses that which came before it in a number of ways. One important difference is that it allows for very fast cooling. The applicator piece which contacts skin becomes cool just one minute after it is plugging in, and it stays cool to ensure your comfort and safety throughout treatment.
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. Thermage is also a widely offered and popular skin tightening method, but its safety and efficiency depend greatly on the practitioner’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 will typically fade within a few hours of the treatment. Generally, you can receive a Laser Skin Tightening treatment and go about your regularly scheduled day without any recovery time. The fractionated method of this laser allows for spatially precise tissue targeting. Small columns of injury are created with precision across the field of treatment, retaining the healing capability of the epidermis while targeting multiple skin layers. The fractionated treatment pattern targets both the dermis and epidermis. This laser provides the same effective skin resurfacing capabilities of an ablative laser, while also allowing for a relatively shorter and easier recovery of a nonablative laser.
However, because the Palomar Starlux laser can only target a percentage of a patient’s skin at one time, multiple sessions are required at 4-week intervals in order to see optimal results. Usually, 1-3 treatments at 4-week intervals will be scheduled so that you can achieve the desired result of smoother and tighter skin in the face, arms, abdomen, and other areas. Results of laser skin tightening are both immediate and progressive*. When initial redness and slight swelling subside, you will note smoother, more elastic feeling skin. Over time and with each additional treatment the body creates collagen and cells regenerate. You will see long term results improve over a few months.
Laser Skin Tightening
Laser skin tightening is becoming more popular because it is probably the most promising and affordable option to achieve younger looking skin on a more permanent basis. Cosmetic surgery is the only other solution that is proven to be more effective than laser skin tightening, but it costs much more and comes with many different risks and side effects. Many people begin to note wrinkles and sagging in their 30’s and 40’s but minimize the severity of the problem; feeling as though they are too young to consider a face lift, or surgery to remove excess skin in other areas of the body. Facelift scars are typically well-hidden, however, arm, thigh, and abdomen surgery do create significant scars. These can be treated and will fade over time, but the idea of visible scars is often less desirable when a person’s lax skin can be tightened through Laser Skin Tightening.
