A great cosmetic procedure you can use to improve the appearance of your skin is laser skin tightening. Laser skin tightening is a skin rejuvenation procedure that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles so that your skin gets a smoother and much younger look.

It is with the help of an infrared light source or laser that the collagen found beneath the skin’s surfaceis heated. This leads to the tightening and contraction of the skin. As you find positive results immediately after this skin tightening procedure, this procedure is increasing in popularity. For optimal results, carry out two or three laser skin tightening treatments a month apart.

Anyone can undergo the procedure

Anyone whose skin sags around the face and neck can undergo laser skin tightening. Men and women of all skin types and tones get a more youthful complexion once the collagen under the skin is regenerated through laser skin tightening.

The cost of laser skin tightening depends on the individual patient’s needs. The size and location of the skin area that is to be tightened, and the type of laser used for the procedure determine the cost of the procedure. However, laser skin tightening is much cheaper than other surgeries like face lifts and tummy tucks. Moreover, if required, you can avail of financing options for your laser skin tightening too.

Non-surgical procedure

When compared to chemical peels and microdermabrasion in Houston, laser skin tightening is less invasive and practically pain free. Moreover, it produces long lasting results. The greatest benefit of this skin tightening procedure is that it comes with minimum risks. At the most, you may experience some temporary skin reddening and scarring and sometimes, a brief lightening and darkening of the treated regions.

As laser skin tightening is a non-surgical procedure that requires no incisions or top plastic surgeons, there is no recovery period after the procedure. You find immediate tightening of skin so that you get a healthier and firmer complexion.

Like any other surgery, its better to choose a reputed Houston med spa to perform laser skin tightening on you. Discuss, and remove any fears and doubts you may have about the procedure with your doctor before you actually undergo laser skin tightening.
