Skin Tightening

Skin tightening is a non-invasive laser treatment.  It is the deposition of heat superficially in the epidermis.  The mechanism is thought to include the activation of fibroblasts and the creation of type 1 collagen and the deposition of heat 3-4mm into the dermis causing collagen contraction.  Inflammatory cytokines resulting from thermal injury signal wound healing mechanisms.

 

About Skin Tightening:

 

Toning of the skin and pore size reduction.

Areas that are commonly treated are face, jawline, neck, upper arms abdomen and knees.

Deals with the deeper damage/skin laxity.

Energy of the long-pulsed Nd/YAG is delivered deeper into the dermis (penetration depth approximately 3-4mm).

Aim is to improve skin laxity by collagen contraction.

Suitable for mild to moderate skin laxity.

Usually a course of 4-6 treatments at monthly intervals.

Is a reasonably comfortable treatment with minimal downtime (skin remains flushed for up to 24 hours, with possible swelling.

Full result three months post treatment due to collagen stimulation/production.

 

Cost:

From €130-€150 per treatment.
