Laser Skin Tightening is the most remarkable development in cosmetic technology today. You can achieve a non-surgical facelift or tummy tuck with minimal pain, no down time, and for a fraction of the cost of plastic surgery. The process is an extremely safe, nonsurgical procedure that employs a high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) source to tighten skin and reverse the signs of aging with minimal to no side effects.
How does laser skin tightening work?
When a certified technician performs a HIFU skin tightening treatment, high intensity focused ultrasound heats up different layers of the body, including the dermis, the epidermis, and the SMAS in order to cause collagen contraction. The thermal effect creates tissue tightening by the remodeling of collagen and elastin in all the layers of the skin, resulting in a significant lift effect. In addition, HIFU skin tightening can stimulate long-term collagen rebuilding after treatment that results in further tightening and the development of a more youthful complexion. HIFU skin tightening treatments can be beneficial in the treatment of slack, loose, or lax skin on many body parts in addition to the face. It is extremely effective in the treatment of the abdomen, thighs, neck and arms.
Treatment length may vary from several minutes to an hour. You can return to normal activities immediately. Some patients may see results right away. For most patients, the results are gradual over a 2-6 month period as new collagen is formed and the skin tightens. Although one treatment will attain significant improvement, it is generally suggested that three treatments be performed at six to eight – week intervals.
