There are two types of aging of the skin which leads to loose or lax skin: “true” aging which is due to chronological aging and “photo” aging, due to the long-term exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight or other environmental toxins, such as smoking, pollution, and lack of circulating antioxidants (diet).
With aging, the skin produces less collagen and elastin which causes the skin to sag and become thinner resulting in the classic signs of aging. This process is accelerated by sun exposure or photo aging making the skin older before its time. Another cause of loose body skin is having one or more children or sudden weight loss.
Loose and sagging skin anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, chin, cheeks, stomach, arms, buttocks or thighs, can add years to your appearance. Laser skin rejuvenation actively targets and treats lines, wrinkles and sun damage for fresher, tighter skin.
Is a Laser Skin Tightening Right for Me?
If you want to tighten your skin, but don’t want to go under the knife, a Laser Skin Tightening by Dr. Doumit may be the solution for you. It is a powerful anti-aging procedure to help boost the youthfulness and vitality of your skin without the need for surgery and recovery time. Laser skin tightening is highly effective on both facial and body conditions. Some of the many benefits you can accomplish with a Laser Skin Tightening include:
Facial lines and wrinkles – highly effective rejuvenation
Improve the jawline – bringing back tightness and smoothness
Saggy neck skin
Nose to mouth lines
Loose, saggy skin – for example, tightening loose skin on the abdomen after childbirth or wrinkly hands
How does Laser Skin Tightening work?
After a thorough consultation with Dr. Doumit, during which your goals and expectations will be fully addressed, the procedure will begin. Cleansing of the area to be treated will be completed, then a numbing cream will be applied. This ensures the laser used by Dr. Doumit will only cause minor discomfort. The laser is then used to penetrate the skin, stimulating regeneration of newer collagen for a tighter, fresher appearance, resulting in fuller, smoother features and a noticeable reduction in even the deepest of creases and folds.
What Happens after the Laser Skin Tightening Treatment?
In most cases, no recovery time is required after Laser Skin Tightening and you can return to day to day activities immediately following your treatment. In certain cases where advanced laser settings are used on the face to achieve improvement of deep folds and wrinkles, you may experience some swelling or bruising to the area treated but it typically doesn’t last longer than 48-72 hours.
Post-treatment care will differ depending on the course of treatment undertaken.
You will be advised of any special care that is required either during your personalised consultation or after treatment.
Initial results are almost instant and will improve over time as the collagen and skin cells repair. You will have a healthier and more youthful skin with reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
