There’s a reason skin tightening treatments are growing in popularity in Australia as “lunchtime procedures” for people who want firmer, more youthful skin. They are essentially non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments that use ultrasound energy or radio waves to stimulate collagen production, which then lifts and tightens the skin.
What’s more attractive about this non-surgical cosmetic procedure is that it requires virtually zero downtime. You can walk into a clinic during lunchtime hours and come out with visibly tighter skin. The optimal tightening and lifting effect start showing within 3 months and remain visible up to 24 months after the procedure.
Laser skin tightening machines address lower face sagging, droopy upper eyelids and eyebrows, loose skin on the neck, chest wrinkles, stretch marks and other skin areas that naturally loosen with age. If you are thinking about whether you should try this non-surgical cosmetic procedure, consider the following benefits:
Non-Surgical and Minimally Invasive
The main benefit of laser skin tightening procedures is that the individual doesn’t need to undergo surgery. Some procedures are entirely non-invasive, while others are minimally invasive. Either way, laser skin tightening is a virtually painless way to keep the skin firm, tight and toned. It has minimal side effects, too.
One thing to keep in mind, however, is that the laser could get very hot while the ultrasound or radiofrequency energy seeps through the skin. But the heat, which stimulates collagen and elastin production, is tolerable.
Available for the Entire Face and Body
When laser skin tightening treatments are brought up, most people automatically think of facial skin. But while the laser treatment effectively stimulates collagen and elastin production in the face, its effects aren’t isolated to facial skin. It can be used to tone, tighten and contour various body parts with loose skin or wrinkles.
Apart from the face, the most frequent areas for laser skin tightening are the neck, jawline and stomach. It can also be used for other areas with loose or sagging skin, such as the arms and thighs.
Greater Collagen Production
We naturally produce collagen in the hair, nails, skin and connective tissue. The production slows down with age, though, resulting in less elasticity and plumpness. A laser skin tightening machine gently heats tissues under the skin to stimulate collagen production and smoothen the skin surface again.
As the treatment triggers collagen production and new cell growth, some individuals may experience minor redness or swelling. This is normal and will eventually fade away to show firmer, more elastic skin.
Naturally Firm and Vibrant Skin
Laser skin tightening is an almost instant way to have firmer, more elastic skin.And unlike surgical facelifts and other cosmetic surgical procedures, it typically doesn’t require anesthesia to tone the skin.
Another thing that people should consider about laser procedures is how they focus on stimulating the body’s biological resources to fill in volume and tighten the skin. Unlike cosmetic surgery which might sometimes appear unnatural, therefore, the results of laser treatments look natural.
No Downtime Required
The convenience of laser skin tightening often convinces people to give it a try. Unlike traditional facelift and surgical treatments that require weeks of downtime, laser treatments can be done by a cosmetic dermatologist or a skincare professional within 30 to 90 minutes, and you can walk out of the clinic right after.
Despite not needing downtime, however, laser skin tightening procedures have lasting results. You can see optimal results after three to six sessions. And with proper care, the results may show for up to three years.
