Laser Skin Tightening – When Should I Start Treatments?

At what age should we be thinking about anti-aging treatments to avoid skin laxity?

We can’t stop skin aging, but we can certainly slow it down. But how and when do you start? While there are many treatments available to counter skin aging, but one of the most effective and popular methods is laser skin tightening.

There are many laser and radiofrequency choices for tightening your skin but our favorite at this point in time is RF Microneedling. Why? Because we can transfer radio frequency energy into deep layers of the skin yet not have much downtime and recovery issues. Radio frequency energy heats up the collagen under the skin and stimulates additional collagen production. This collagen growth results in the skin becoming tighter, thus, reduces sagging, wrinkles, lines and other blemishes in the process.

Who is a candidate for laser skin tightening?

Laser skin tightening is a fabulous treatment for both men and women of any age. We recommend starting a treatment plan at 30 if you are not a smoker or have had excessive sun damage. The average age range for skin tightening treatments is 30 to 60 years old. If you’re in the 40+ age group we recommend a 12 month dermal health restoration plan to rebuild depleted collagen levels. Rebuilding collagen to the appropriate levels is critical to being able to maintain tight skin as you continue to age.

Laser skin tightening is ideal for:

  1. Tightening and repairing loose facial skin

  2. Reducing fine lines all over the body

  3. Reducing wrinkles all over the body

What if you have more than just loose skin? What if you have jowls, jawline definition loss or that dreaded double chin? We can help with that too. New procedure for non-surgical face sculpting. If you have a little more fat in areas on your face or neck that are bothersome to you, we can laser sculpt those areas with a combination treatment of Face Sculpting and Skin Tightening.

What about tightening skin on body areas?

RF Microneedling can be very effective all areas of the body. Some of the areas which can be treated are:

  • Abdomen
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Face
  • Buttocks
  • Neck

When would laser skin tightening not be applicable?

Laser skin tightening is a common treatment with very few risks usually associated with it. However, it is not advisable in certain circumstances:

  1. If one is prone to having herpes outbreaks, an autoimmune condition or a B12 deficiency.

  2. If anyone has suffered or is currently suffering from skin cancer

  3. If you are pregnant women or nursing.
