SKIN TIGHTENING TECHNOLOGY AND OUR RESULTS
Skin tightening treatments influence new collagen production can be stimulated by the application of various forms of energy (light). Particularly effective is the deeply penetrating heat of the Nd YAG long pulse laser. Of critical importance when using these powerful energies is the knowledge and experience to avoid excessive energy that can cause scarring. Our laser technicians know exactly how to get the most from our laser machines and use advanced techniques to deliver the right amount of energy to achieve optimal results for your skin.
HOW DOES SKIN TIGHTENING WORK?
At the right energy level, the heat from the Nd YAG laser causes partial breaking down of protein in the skin. This is a form of mild controlled damage, which stimulates a strong healing response that is accompanied by the production of new collagen. The approach used is to conduct several treatments starting with mild to moderate energy levels, progressively increasing at repeat treatments depending on the response to the previous treatment. In summary sagging skin of mild to moderate degree is likely to respond to laser skin tightening. Treatment is relatively quick with only mild discomfort. There can be minimal swelling and redness after the treatment, which dissipates rapidly. Over succeeding months the new collagen matures and in the process tightens the skin.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of skin tightening treatments required depends on the degree of laxity in the skin and the individual’s innate healing capacity. Results will vary depending on age, genetic background and general health status including smoking, cardiovascular health and the metabolism (eg. sugar levels). Our skilled laser technicians will design the perfect package to suit your problem. This plan will include an initial consultation with our resident doctor, Colin Campey (Medicare rebates may apply), a skin assessment, advice and what type of procedures would be required to achieve your desired results.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
There is no area of the body that cannot be treated. But the laser is unable to correct severe problems where there is significant sagging of the skin. In the case of an apron abdominal skin after weight loss, an appendectomy (or tummy tuck) would be suitable options.
