We all know that as we age time and the elements of nature take a toll on our skin. And the tight, smooth skin of our youth may seem like a thing of the past.
Skin Tightening Without Surgery
Over time sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles will only increase as collagen production in our skin decreases. Luckily, there are minimally invasive treatments that can tighten and improve the look of our skin and help to reclaim a more youthful appearance.
IPL Skin Tightening is a procedure that uses intense pulsed light to deliver directed pulses of heat under the skin to trigger the body’s natural production of collagen. Penetration is deep in the underlying layers of skin to effectively form a new foundation while protecting the treated area.
IPL Skin Tightening is most effective on noticeably sagging areas of the face including the jawline, neck and chin. It is safe for all skin types and can be used on virtually any part of the body that needs tightening including; arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
Minimally Invasive Treatment With No Downtime
The procedure requires a short office visit and beyond avoiding direct sun exposure, there are no restrictions placed on you after treatment. A cooling gel may be applied prior the procedure and most patients feel little to no discomfort during the duration. Minimal redness can occur following the session and will typically dissipate shortly after.
Results can be seen between 3 and 6 months post procedure and after the recommended series of sessions; typically consisting of 4-6 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart.
