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. At Q Esthetics Laser Clinic, we provide state-of-the-art laser skin tightening treatments that yields top results – with the award-winning Palomar Starlux 500 system.
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.
Laser skin tightening vs. Thermage skin tightening
The Palomar StarLux 500 is the leading skin tightening laser system. The system was built through research in deep heating, with an approach to fractional delivery and other proprietary technologies; such as cooling, timing, and spectrum. The hand-piece LuxDeepIR of StarLux 500 safely provides more effective heat, to greater depths, for top skin tightening.
Thermage is also a widely offered skin tightening method, but its safety depends greatly on the expert’s skill. As per patient reviews, the satisfaction rate of Thermage is only 38%. This is quite low when compared to that of 95% of laser skin tightening treatments performed at Q Esthetics.
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 you expect from laser skin tightening treatment?
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.
