Laser Skin Tightening

As we age, the “scaffolding” that keeps our skin tight begins to break down.  Our bodies produce less collagen to keep our skin plump.  The elastin proteins in our body begin to weaken and we begin to lose elasticity.   Around age 40 we begin to notice that our jawline isn’t quite as tight and that we have a few extra folds of skin on our neck and chest.  ND: YAG and ER:YAG laser skin tightening is the ideal solution to tighten up crêpe skin on the face, neck, chest, and underarms. Elase offers Laser Skin Tightening in Salt Lake City, Draper and Orem Utah.

Who is a good candidate for this treatment?

All clients with light to medium colored skin are able to receive skin tightening.  It is most effective on crepe skin that has lost elasticity due to age.  This is not a replacement for a face lift and it will not tighten excess skin to extreme weight loss.   This treatment can help with stretch marks, but generally will not completely remove them.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed varies by client.  Most clients require 6-12.  Treatments are spaced about 1-2 weeks apart.

Is this treatment permanent?

Unfortunately cosmetic lasers can reverse the signs of aging, but cannot stop the aging process.  We recommend that after your first full series of treatments you plan on annual touch ups.

Is this treatment safe?

Yes, skin tightening is a very safe procedure.   Clients will feel a warm sensation on their skin during the treatment, along with minor redness and swelling.  All of these symptoms will generally dissipate within the first 24 hours.

When will I see results?

You will see temporary results immediately.  These temporary results will last up to a week after each treatment.  (This is an ideal treatment if you want a quick refresher a few days prior to an important event.) Long-term results require that that skin begin to increase collagen production and new elastin fibers.  These permanent results will generally be seen about 8 weeks after a full series of treatments.
