Laser skin tightening is most commonly done on the face to treat crow's feet, frown lines, creases, and other facial wrinkles.
It can also be performed in other areas where the skin is sagging, including the arms, the neck, the hands, the legs, and the chest area.
This helps the body contour into a more natural, healthy look.
The PicoSure FOCUS Lens Array laser treatment is a multi-layered treatment that stimulates the skin to produce more of its own natural collagen and elastin between the cells.
The high energy laser sends its concentrated light into 10 percent of the skin at a time, while the other 90 percent of the skin is treated with a lower energy laser light.
The laser then rotates to send the highest frequency laser into each part of the skin in turn.
This method works particularly well because it is very gentle and won't overstimulate the skin as a whole.
By approaching the skin in intervals, the laser is able to focus on the deepest layers of the dermis, exactly where the collagen and elastin are formed.
This approach allows for the best skin tightening, reaching even the deeper lines and wrinkles on the face.
Most patients need around three treatment sessions, although this does vary by person. Each treatment session will last for around 15 to 20 minutes.
Sessions are usually spaced around a month apart, and are administered by our health care professionals.
Recovery from laser face tightening is very different from a facelift or other surgical recovery.
It takes only a few days for any redness to resolve, and most people are able to resume their regular routine almost immediately.
At most, patients will usually feel a mild tenderness, but will not typically have any pain after a laser face tightening treatment.*Individual Results May Vary
