Laser Skin Tightening
Delay Cosmetic Surgery with Laser Skin Tightening
Do you want tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin but are not quite ready to pursue cosmetic surgery? Have you considered facelift or “tummy tuck” plastic surgery, but cannot spare the time it takes? If so, laser skin tightening treatment may be perfectly suited to your needs.
Although facial rejuvenation and body contouring plastic surgery procedures are extremely effective ways to help you get the body you want, they do require a certain amount of recovery time following surgery. If you are short on time but still want to rejuvenate the skin on your face or body, you should seriously consider laser skin tightening treatment with Bulan Plastic Surgery in Northern New Jersey.
What Does Laser Skin Tightening Treat?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved laser skin tightening treatment as an effective way to tighten and tone slack skin on almost any body part, including the abdomen, cheeks, chin, jaw line and arms.
If you are searching for a noninvasive, non-ablative cosmetic treatment that will improve facial tone, diminish the look of mild acne scars, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, or simply tighten loose skin on your midsection, your search may be over.
Often, the results from skin tightening treatment are so impressive that patients can postpone their need for surgical facelift or tummy tuck.
Who Can Benefit From Laser Skin Tightening?
Almost anyone can benefit from this innovative cosmetic treatment; laser skin tightening is safe on all skin and body types. If you have lax skin and realistic expectations for the outcome of this procedure – it will not help you lose 50 pounds or strengthen abdominal muscles – you may be a good candidate for laser skin tightening treatment.
The Science Behind the Treatment
In order to appreciate the benefits of laser skin tightening treatment fully, it is important to understand how it works. At Bulan Plastic Surgery, we use Accent Your Body radio frequency (RF) technology to perform the skin tightening procedure.
Linda, our Certified Plastic Surgery Nurse at Bulan Plastic Surgery, is adept at a full range of RF techniques for minimally invasive body contouring. These treatments apply RF waves to the targeted area, where they penetrate into your skin’s deeper tissue layers. The RF energy heats the targeted skin tissue, reactivating inactive collagen, a protein that is essential for tight, toned skin. As the skin’s collagen is heated and consequently reactivated, it generates skin cells that look tighter and smoother (Goodbye, wrinkles!). In addition to reactivating latent collagen, the treatment also activates the body’s production of new collagen, which furthers the aesthetic results of the laser skin tightening procedure.
What to Expect During Treatment
It takes Linda approximately one hour to perform the procedure, depending on the size of the targeted area. You may experience a warming feeling during treatment, but you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever before the procedure to minimize any discomfort. However, it is likely that you will be able to manage any uncomfortable sensations during treatment easily.
Following treatment, you may notice mild swelling or pinkness in the treated area, but these symptoms are typically mild and should subside within a few hours. Some of the aesthetic results may be apparent immediately after treatment, and results continue to improve as the body generates new collagen. That is why we recommend that you undergo multiple laser skin tightening treatments for maximum effect.
You will be happy to know that unlike facelift or tummy tuck plastic surgery, laser skin tightening does not require any downtime. You can have a treatment session on your midday break and return to your normal activities feeling – and looking – as refreshed as if you just had a facelift!
