Laser Skin Tightening: Treating Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As we age, fine lines and wrinkles become more pronounced. Laser skin tightening is a cosmetic procedure that uses various different laser technologies as well as injectables to improve the signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles.
Laser Skin & Surgery Center of New York has fellowship-trained and board-certified dermatologists specializing in laser treatments. With more than 100 lasers and energy devices available in our renowned facility, our nationally-recognized dermatologists customize treatments to maximize patient outcomes.
How Do Laser Skin Tightening Treatments Help Improve the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles?
Laser skin tightening treatments are very popular at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York. Laser treatments for skin tightening restore a more youthful appearance and improve your skin’s overall tone and texture. Some of the devices we use to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity include:
- Active FX and Deep FX: These are fractional CO2 lasers that penetrate deep into the skin with micro-channels of heat to reduce wrinkles. They are ideal for more severe symptoms.
- Sofwave & Ulthera: This ultrasound device treats sagging skin on the face and neck by heating the skin to trigger collagen production. Increased levels of collagen smooth the skin and reduce lines and wrinkles.
- Fraxel Re:Pair: This is an FDA-approved fractional CO2 laser that treats deep wrinkles and rejuvenates the skin at a cellular level. It creates micro-channels in the dermal layer and different depths to stimulate the natural regenerative process like cell renewal and collagen production to smooth out and firm up the skin.
- ThermiRF & Thermage: These innovative devices use radiofrequency (RF) energy to target the subdermal layer of skin to treat laxity and wrinkles. It heats the treatment area at an optimal temperature that is not available in other RF devices.
- PicoPlus Laser: This laser has two high-energy wavelengths that help patients achieve desired results in fewer sessions and with advanced precision.
- Genius & Morpheus8: These devices use radiofrequency with microneedling with minimal downtime.
What Skin Types Would Benefit from Laser Tightening Treatment?
All skin types can benefit from laser tightening treatments. It is important for patients to consult with a board-certified and experienced dermatologist for a personalized treatment plan. All laser tightening treatments at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York are performed exclusively by physicians. Who you choose to perform laser skin tightening treatments is extremely important. Laser skin tightening should only be performed by highly trained, board-certified dermatologists to achieve optimal results.
What to Expect During and After Laser Skin Tightening Treatment
Many laser skin tightening treatments are comfortable for patients due to topical anesthetics and integrated cooling devices that keep the skin at a comfortable temperature. The procedures can typically be performed in less than an hour, depending on the treatment area and severity of the conditions.
After the procedure, patients may experience mild side effects such as:
These side effects should dissipate within one week. Some patients require multiple treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. Your board-certified physician can guide you through regular maintenance and appropriate treatment sessions for natural and youthful results.
What Is the Average Recovery Time for Skin Tightening Treatments?
Downtime for recovery can last from one to two weeks. During this time, it is essential to protect your skin from the sun using hats, sunglasses, and sun lotion. Your dermatologist will provide you with after-care instructions based on your treatment.
When Will I See Results From Laser Skin Tightening Treatments?
Results vary from patient to patient and depend upon the treatment plan designed for each patient. Most treatments require very little or no downtime.
