What is Laser Skin Tightening?
Laser skin tightening is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses gentle laser energy to tighten the skin, eliminating wrinkles and lines. For this treatment, we use the ThermiSmooth® system. With ThermiSmooth® , the skin is precisely heated using radiofrequency energy. This process stimulates collagen production and causes the skin to contract, resulting in both short-term and long-lasting results. Laser skin tightening can be used on the face, neck, arms, and legs.
How Much Does Laser Skin Tightening Cost?
The cost of laser skin tightening will vary by patient. The cost of this treatment depends on the area being treated and the number of treatments necessary to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Mardirossian will take these factors into consideration in order to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing services like CareCredit® to help make your treatment more affordable.
What is the Laser Skin Tightening Treatment Like?
The laser skin tightening treatment begins by applying a cooling gel to the skin’s surface. Then, the ThermiSmooth® handpiece is placed on the skin, where it will heat the skin at a comfortable rate. Many patients compare this process to the feeling of a heated massage. As the skin rises to its targeted temperature, collagen production is stimulated. The full treatment typically takes about 30 minutes.
What is Recovery Like After Laser Skin Tightening?
After laser skin tightening, there is no downtime or recovery period necessary. You may experience minor side effects such as redness or sensitivity, but these often fade within a day or two. You’ll be able to resume all normal activities after your treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Laser Skin Tightening?
The laser skin tightening treatment can take a few weeks to produce results. This is because it takes time for collagen to take effect in the skin. Most patients notice results about one month after treatment. However, multiple treatment sessions are often necessary to achieve optimal results.
At Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics, we typically recommend a series of four to six laser skin tightening treatments. These treatments are usually performed every two weeks, and you will notice continued improvements in your results throughout the treatment process.
