In the past, wrinkles could be reduced through a series of chemical peels which destroys the outer layer of skin. Now, wrinkles can be reduced without harming the skin. Laser Skin Tightening is a series of laser treatments designed to stimulate dermal collagen production and regeneration of damaged skin cells. The light energy for the laser heats the dermis, which stimulates new collagen to grow. Increased turnover of skin cells is also stimulated, helping to regenerate and replace damaged cells.
Skin Tightening with the Lyra Nd:YAG Laser, with FDA clearance, is capable of treating all skin types including darker skin tones. With the Nd:YAG’s ability to penetrate deeper, the laser energy is effectively delivered to the targeted areas. It safely delivers energy deeply into the skin for skin tightening, wrinkle and, hair removal results. We recommend 4-6 weeks between treatments and you can treat as many times as you would like. You will usually see good results with one treatment, but better results with more treatments.
Laser-light is applied to the surface of the skin and passes harmlessly into its deeper layers. As the laser light reaches the dermis, a controlled amount of therapeutic heat is delivered to the collagen which results in growth stimulation and tightening. Laser skin tightening treatment will take place in our office. You will be given protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser light. The laser practitioner will apply brief laser pulses to the surface of the skin with a small handpiece. Most laser skin tightening treatments last 45 minutes or less.
