How Laser Skin Tightening Works
As some people age, they begin to develop sagging skin in their face that creates the appearance that they are older than they really are.
This can destroy a person’s confidence, have a negative impact on their mental health, and cause them to seek out products that just don’t work at making them look any younger.
The Elasticity Is Dependent On Collagen And Elastin Fibers
Address Sagging Skin
Moving beyond the face lift popularity of decades past, laser skin tightening is a popular method today used to address sagging skin in the facial area. Minimally invasive, laser skin tightening serves to inspire your skin to begin producing higher amounts of collagen and elastic, thereby tightening the skin over time. When you are young, you don’t need to worry about skin tightening because there is already so much elasticity to the skin. For example, when there is a skin injury, a younger person’s skin will heal quickly, scars fade away at a faster rate, and in general, the skin can take more abuse to it than it can at other periods of one’s life. The elasticity is dependent on collagen and elastin fibers. Think of the ways in which rubber bands work. It is the same concept. All laser skin tightening is doing is triggering the body’s natural processes to produce newer, tighter rubber bands.
Aging is a natural process, yes. For some people, a little bit of sagging is not a problem. For others, it can be. The glow of the skin does fade with age and over the course of one’s life, it is perfectly natural to experience some level of skin damage. This can happen from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, smoking and other lifestyle choices, high levels of stress, excessive alcohol intake, and an unhealthy diet. Even if one goes to the gym and loses a large amount of weight or loses that weight in a rapid manner, even this can lead to sagging skin.
Highly Effective Results
Safer Than Surgery
If you want to repair the damage that has been caused to the skin, laser skin tightening is your best bet – and here’s why. The recovery time is near nothing, there is no redness experienced beyond the first few hours following treatment, and it is a far safer method, risk-wise, than surgery.
How laser skin tightening works is by heating up the collagen underneath the skin to 66 degrees. When this happens, the skin shrinks and tightens. The challenge in this process is how to remodel the collagen and elastin fibres deep in the layers of skin without burning the surface. This is accomplished through the utilization of cooling devices which keep the outer layer comfortable while the heat energy passes through the laser and into the deep layer of the skin.
Of all the recommended options that can be used to treat loose skin, laser skin tightening has advanced to the point where it is among the most effective options and better yet, it’s not surgery. Any risks associated with the procedure are low, the costs are affordable, and the results are highly effective.
