Laser skin rejuvenation is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses a laser to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten). Facial skin rejuvenation is noticeable immediately after the treatment, and there is no downtime, making this an increasingly popular procedure. Additional skin rejuvenation and tightening occurs over the next few months, but optimal results usually require two or three treatments about a month apart.
Laser skin rejuvenation is rapidly becoming a very popular aesthetic procedure for reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other effects of skin laxity. It is increasing in popularity because it is less invasive than other rejuvenating procedures, such as face lift and body lift procedures, it produces dramatically firmer skin, and it can be used on any area of the body. Added benefits of laser skin rejuvenation are the reduced risk of side effects and the lack of downtime following treatment.
Laser skin tightening has been proven effective for tightening and rejuvenating the skin on all areas of the body. Patients can enjoy a rejuvenated look when this treatment is applied to the face, neck, abdomen, arms, legs, and buttocks. In fact, patients with minor to moderate skin laxity may opt for laser skin rejuvenation treatment instead of more invasive procedures such as liposuction and even mini tummy tuck surgery, and experience noticeably firmer skin with no downtime and little discomfort.
Laser skin rejuvenation often produces less immediate and dramatic changes than laser skin resurfacing, but it also poses far fewer risks, discomfort, and downtime for patients. During laser skin rejuvenation, a laser is used to heat the collagen under the surface of the skin, causing the collagen to expand and the skin to appear tighter. Laser skin resurfacing uses lasers to remove the outer layers of skin to promote the growth of new, healthier skin. Because laser skin resurfacing actually removes the top layers of skin, it can be used to treat a broader range of cosmetic issues than laser skin rejuvenation, such as wrinkles, age or sun spots, acne marks, and other facial scarring. The risk of unfavorable changes in pigmentation and scarring is stronger with laser skin resurfacing than with skin rejuvenation.
During treatment, your laser practitioner will use a small hand piece to apply quick pulses of laser light to your skin. Patients may feel a gradual warming sensation at the treatment area, and could feel brief discomfort which is often described as similar to the sensation caused by a snapping rubber band on the skin. Most patients comment that the discomfort they feel during laser skin rejuvenation is minimal, and it is usually resolved within a few minutes of the procedure’s completion.
Most patients notice changes in the tone and condition of their skin immediately following a skin rejuvenation treatment. However, because the procedure is designed to stimulate the natural growth of collagen, the patient’s optimal results may take up to a few months to be visible. Typically, new collagen growth takes from 90 to 180 days after the initial treatment, at which time patients enjoy a dramatically rejuvenated appearance.
Patients see noticeable decreases in skin laxity after their first session, most skin rejuvenation experts recommend up to six treatments, depending on the patient’s desired results and the area to be treated. Treatments are generally spaced roughly three weeks apart. After the initial series of treatments, some patients opt for yearly touch up sessions to target areas most prone to wrinkles and lines.
Laser skin rejuvenation is a safe and painless way to rejuvenate the appearance of skin in any area of the body. Unlike other treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing, this treatment does not burn or break the skin. Patients who undergo skin rejuvenation experience very few side effects and these are most often minor inconveniences in the form of redness or minimal and temporary swelling.
The normal side effects of this procedure may include redness and swelling, and should subside within a couple of days. In rare cases, patients experience bruising and blistering, and some patients experience changes in pigmentation of treated areas. Again, these side effects are very rare. The average patient can expect only moderate redness and possible swelling during recovery, and will be able to resume his or her lifestyle immediately.
Laser skin Rejuvenation helps patients achieve younger-looking, smoother skin without undergoing expensive surgeries such as a face lift. The cost varies depending on the individual patient’s needs such as the size and location of the area to be treated. However, facial skin rejuvenation is considerably less expensive than invasive surgeries.
