About Laser Skin Tightening

How does Laser Skin Tightening work?

  • Laser Skin Tightening uses Nd:Yag laser to reduce Fine lines & Wrinkles.
  • The energy of the long-pulse Nd:Yag is delivered deep into the dermis 3-4 mm from the surface.
  • The idea is to heat the skin gradually by using our painting technique to deliver thousands of shots of heat in the deeper layers of skin.
  • Bulk heating with sufficient depth has been shown to improve the appearance of the skin in terms of skin tightening & wrinkle reduction.
  • The aim is to improve skin laxity by collagen contraction.
  • This method has been scientifically proven to produce collagen which triggers the skin to rebuild itself.
  • It can also cause toning of skin and pore size reduction.
  • The treatment is comfortable with no downtime.

Who is suitable for the treatment?

  • Men and women aged 30-60 are ideal candidates.
  • Anyone who desires firmer more youthful looking skin.
  • Clients who have realistic expectations, this is not a substitute for surgery but more appropriate for people who are showing mild to moderate signs of ageing.
  • Anyone in their late 20’s who wants to start preventing the early signs of ageing.

Who is not suitable for the treatment?

  • Clients with extreme skin laxity are not suitable for this procedure; this is not an alternative to surgery. It’s for those patients not yet ready for surgery.
  • Women who are pregnant & Breastfeeding.
  • Clients who are taking photosensitive medications.
  • Cancer
  • Anyone dark skinned above a Skin Type 4.
  • Sun tan/use of sun beds and fake tan
  • Healing disorders such as those caused by Diabetes Mellitus and lupus
  • History of Keloid scarring
  • Recent use of Roacutane
  • Immune, lymphatic system disorders

Consultation procedure

  • Prior to the treatment, you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding, you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch.
  • The Therapist will assess your problem areas whether it’s saggy jawline or neck or loose skin on the abdomen and recommend and individualized treatment protocol for you.

What steps are involved in the treatment?

  • The treatment area is cleansed with a pre-laser cleanser.
  • The area is marked out with a white pencil.
  • A paint brush feathering technique is used to apply heat very quickly to the skin.
  • Each individual area will be treated until the whole area has been treated.
  • The temperature of the skin will be checked after each small section has been treated to ensure that it has reached a temperature of 40-43 degrees.
  • Once the whole area has been treated the whole process is repeated for the second time.
  • The treatment is finished off with a massage using an anti ageing serum and the application of sun protection cream.

How long does the treatment take?

  • A typical treatment session is approximately 40 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated, whether you want to include the neck and decolletage as part of the treatment.

How does the treatment feel?

  • You will feel the heat from the Laser as it heats up the dermis. However, all our clients tolerate the treatment well.
  • You will experience a similar feeling to a very mild sunburn after the treatment for a very short time.

How many treatments are required?

  • A course of 6 treatments at 2-4 week intervals.
  • Can take up to 4 treatments before seeing results.
  • Improvements can continue 6 months post laser treatment.

Are there any possible side effects/Downtime?

  • The procedure is considered very safe; it does not remove or burn any skin.
  • There is no downtime with this treatment and is considered a lunch-time procedure.
  • Your skin will be photo-sensitive after the treatment, therefore it  is important to protect the skin from sun exposure.

Is there any Aftercare/Homecare?

  • It is imperative one uses SPF 50 or above to protect the Skin from having further Sun damage, as well as Hyper- and Hypo-pigmentation.
  • Makeup should not be applied whilst the skin is inflamed and/or swollen. We highly recommend using Mineral Makeup or Blemish Balm cream immediately after the treatment.
  • Sauna and Swimming pools should be avoided for a week.
  • Drink plenty of water at least 2 litres a day.
  • To increase collagen production apply pure vitamin C on the skin.
  • Additional products may be advised by the Laser Technician.
