Expert Dermatologists Name 8 Best Lasers and Devices for Skin Tightening
Laser and energy-based therapy is the gold standard for non-surgical skin tightening. These devices are proven safe and effective for improving the firmness and smoothness of skin, particularly for boosting collagen production to address skin laxity along with lines and wrinkles.
For patients in New York seeking non-surgical solutions to their aesthetic concerns and skin conditions Laser & Skin Surgery Center’s board-certified dermatologists have decades of experience helping patients achieve their cosmetic goals and have an extensive range of laser devices –more lasers (100+) than almost anyone else in the country – allowing them to customize all their patient’s treatments to ensure an optimal outcome.
If you’re considering reversing signs of aging and would like to rejuvenate your skin without having to go under the knife, our skin experts are revealing the best lasers for skin tightening.
Clear + Brilliant
A gentler alternative to traditional lasers, Clear + Brilliant is a fractional laser skin resurfacing device that is considered one of the best facial lasers for treating early signs of aging and preventing them.
It works by creating microscopic treatment zones, working deep into the dermal structure to boost collagen, smooth skin from the inside out, and replace damaged skin with a more youthful layer. The result is a healthy glow and a visible reduction in aging signs, sun damage, and uneven pigmentation. With regular treatment sessions, the Clear + Brilliant laser will help you maintain a brighter, more radiant complexion.
The LaseMD Ultra device, manufactured by Lutronic, is a non-ablative fractional laser treatment that’s designed for rejuvenating and treating pigmentation issues. Its 1927 wavelength provides patients with a unique and tailored experience. Through a customized approach, the laser treatment can rebuild healthy skin, rejuvenate pigmented skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Due to its fractional nature, LaseMD can deeply penetrate the dermal layers to achieve impressive results, while minimizing discomfort and downtime. The treatment preserves the outer dermis, which enables patients to return to their regular routine with minimal indication of a cosmetic procedure.
Active FX and Deep FX
Active FX and Deep FX lasers offer fractional CO2 resurfacing and target specific areas of the skin to treat fine lines and photodamage.
Active FX is a high-energy laser beam treatment solution for sun-damaged or wrinkled skin. It treats only a fraction of the skin at a time, which allows for faster healing. The treatment causes the upper layer of skin to peel off, revealing a layer of healthy skin underneath.
Deep FX treats deep wrinkles through skin resurfacing. It also utilizes a fractionated pattern to allow for a quicker healing time. Deep FX’s deep heating boosts collagen tightening and is ideal for the treatment of wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.Combined, these lasers are excellent at treating more advanced signs of aging, including, deeper wrinkles, blotchiness, acne scars, and severe textural issues from sun damage, making them two of the best laser treatments for the face.
Fraxel Repair is fractional CO2 laser. As an ablative laser, this device delivers an intense wavelength of light to a treatment area and vaporizing tiny columns of skin. These controlled injuries stimulate the body’s regenerative process and rejuvenate the skin through cell renewal and the production of more collagen and elastin.
One of the best lasers for skin resurfacing, Fraxel Repair effectively treats deep lines and wrinkles, sunspots and age spots, uneven skin tone and texture, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and melasma. The laser is also renowned for producing long-lasting results.
The Erbium YAG laser targets the water in the skin cells, vaporizing the cells to remove micro-layers of skin at a time. As a fractional laser, it creates micro-channels in the skin that trigger the body to generate new cells and produce collagen.
Cell renewal and collagen remodeling lead to skin that is smoother and more youthful, with a visible reduction in lines, scarring, and hyperpigmentation, making Erbium YAG one of the best lasers for face tightening.
Although not a type of laser, RF microneedling is an effective solution for treating early signs of aging, including facial wrinkles and skin laxity. Each treatment can be customized to the patient’s needs regardless of skin type.
RF microneedling combines two powerful skin-renewing modalities (microneedling and RF energy) to effectively penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. Microneedles precisely deliver RF energy at varying depths below the skin to stimulate collagen production to renew the skin, all while leaving the skin’s outer layer intact.
RF microneedling smooths fine lines and wrinkles, firms the skin, improves skin tone and texture, and tightens loose or sagging skin.
Ellacor is a brand-new skin rejuvenating device that utilizes an innovative technique known as micro-coring. By employing hollow needles, the device extracts thousands of minute “micro-cores” of skin, resulting in a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. The procedure causes little to no scarring and has a shorter recovery period compared to many laser and energy-based treatments. Ellacor is the pioneering device of its kind, specifically created to extract skin on a micro-scale.
Sofwave is a skin-tightening device that uses ultrasound technology to constrict tissue and stimulate collagen production, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and creating firmer skin.
During a treatment, Sofwave will send ultrasound energy to targeted areas, and the emitted sound waves are converted to heat, causing the treatment zones to stimulate a healing response. As a result, collagen in the skin replenishes to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Over time, the skin becomes, smoother, tighter, and firmer.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound energy to target the same deep layers of tissue traditionally treated in surgical facelifts and produces firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin.
The ultrasound energy delivers gentle heating to the tissue without disrupting the outer dermis. As the heat constricts the tissue, it creates a firmer appearance soon after treatment.
Increased collagen levels also smooth and firm the skin from within, leading to natural, long-lasting improvement.
Thermi is a radiofrequency device that boasts advanced wrinkle reduction and skin tightening properties. By delivering RF energy via a small probe that is inserted under the patient’s skin, it can target and heat the subdermal or inner layer of skin directly to begin producing new collagen. In effect, the skin in the affected area becomes tighter and smoother, effectively treating wrinkles and skin laxity.
